I‘m super excited to share this week’s Destination Desserts with you! To say that Big Gay Ice Cream has quite a following in New York City is an understatement. With a menu filled with playful soft serve ice cream cones, shakes, floats and sundaes, their truck is nostalgic of the ice cream trucks from your childhood but with a new aged flavor twist. Founders Douglass Quint and Bryan Petroff started their franchise with an ice cream truck during the summer of 2009. They had a simple goal of sharing their treats with a smile and giving the people of New York a bit of happiness. Before they knew it, their inventive flavors like Salty Pimp, Cococone, Mermaid and Gobbler made them a huge success. There is no wonder that today, Big Gay Ice Cream now has added two store fronts and has been featured everywhere from Rachel Ray to Food Network and the Cooking Channel. To learn more about this groundbreaking truck, check out my interview below.
