I know I just posted about Cow Tipping Creamery, so I’ll keep this brief. After some drinks with a friend at nearby Freedmen’s we zipped over to the Rancho Rio Eatery to see any trucks were still open. Secretly I had been hoping for some ice cream. Alas, Cow Tipping Creamery’s lights were off and the windows were closed. Just before we backed out of the parking lot, the two men of the family-run operation walked out of the truck. My friend asked if they were absolutely closed, to which they said yes. What happened next is the stuff dreams are made of.
With two cups in his hand, he approached the car and said “you can have this one!” If someone could be stone-cold serious while having a genuinely happy smile, this guy pulled it off. I got out of the car, walked over to take with one hand to take the Stacker and the other to shake his hand. I told him about my very recent blog post that raved about the Fluffer Nutter. Upon hearing that he offered me the other ice cream he had in his hand, which happened to be a Fluffer Nutter Stacker. It wasn’t until that point that I even asked what he was so graciously giving me.
What else could it have been but the Gimme S’mores Stacker! Vanilla soft serve, chocolate chips, toasted marshmallows, graham cracker crumble, chocolate sauce, and whipped cream. Talk about sweet, literally. The graham crackle crumble is the highlight, slightly ahead of the toasted marshmallows and chocolate chips. The chocolate sauce, noted as “Ghana single source”, came off a bit too sweet, especially towards the bottom where it settled. Still a super tasty dessert, amplified by how it came about, but if I had to choose I’d definitely go with the Fluffer Nutter.
Talk about customer service. When questioned why go to food trucks when I could go to restaurants, it’s these kinds of stories that stick with me. It just doesn’t happen.
So to the whole Cow Tipping Creamery family: Thank you for being awesome.
