While I’ve got you on ice cream mode, I wanted to share with you another one of my new favorite frozen treats — or frozen treat vehicle rather.
By now you’re probably fairly familiar with Treatbot, the karaoke ice cream truck founded by the same guys behind the Moveable Feast events, but since they opened up their San Pedro Square Market factory in Downtown San Jose, they’ve been cooking up some extra special treats.
A few weeks ago, Treatbot started offering homemade bacon waffle cones at the factory, and from the second I laid eyes on them, I had to have one. While I was close to running right down to the factory to get my hands on one immediately, I decided to wait for a more opportune time. Thankfully, I didn’t have to wait long, since I was tasked with choosing a dinner location to catch up with a few friends just a few days later. Perfect.
I lured my friends to San Pedro Square Market with the prospect of bacon waffle cones, and after we dined on savory treats from The Little Chef Counter and Pizza Bocca Lupo (my favorite Bay Area pizza so far), we headed to the factory for dessert. My friends ordered the bacon waffle cone with Chocolate Mint and Eastside Horchata and I opted for The 408, a creamy caramel ice cream with fudge swirls and Oreo Cookies.
Treatbot sells their bacon waffle cones in one size only for six bucks a pop. While it seems a bit pricey, the servings are generous and will surely please your taste buds.
Can’t get enough ice cream? Stay tuned for another featured frozen treat next week. Check out my tweets from yesterday for a clue!
