Indulge in Ice Cream Trucks’ Icy Delights

As summer rapidly approaches and temperatures rise, ice cream trucks become a familiar sight across New York City. Whether in need of a sweet treat or a cold snack to cool down, ice cream trucks boast an array of delicious frozen desserts to choose from. 

According to a school-wide survey, the most popular delicacy from ice cream trucks is soft serve, particularly vanilla-chocolate twist, with rainbow sprinkles. Students commend the delicious flavor, texture, and nostalgia it evokes.

Junior Olivia Levine said, “I love vanilla-chocolate swirl with rainbow sprinkles because it is classic and tasty. The rainbow sprinkles remind me of my childhood. My dad also orders this, so it is clearly generational.” Levine noted that the ice cream melts very quickly and can get quite messy.

Junior Amia Kaplun similarly raved about a vanilla-chocolate twist with rainbow sprinkles. “The twist is a perfect choice when you don’t know whether you want chocolate or vanilla, and the rainbow sprinkles really bring out the flavor,” said Kaplun. The one flaw she noted was that the cones often taste like styrofoam.  

Junior Leeraz Joseph echoed this sentiment, opting to enjoy her vanilla soft serve with rainbow sprinkles in a cup. “The cup really allows you to focus on the delicious ice cream, unlike the styrofoam-tasting cone,” said Joseph.

Other crowd favorites include the SpongeBob popsicle, perfect for students searching for a dairy-free frozen delight.

“The SpongeBob popsicle is perfectly sweet and just a little tangy, with amazing gumball eyes,” said junior Aviva Guttman. “The only issue is that the gumball eyes are really black and dye my tongue, and sometimes they fall out before I can eat them.” 

Senior Malka Aderman-Alcorn said, “The flavor is great. It’s very refreshing, and the gumballs top it off perfectly. They are so good!”

Some members of the student body reject the ice cream truck craze, refusing to buy their icy treats. Junior Lior Shimoni said, “ I don’t trust the ice cream truck regime. They overprice everything. I would rather have Ben and Jerry’s, Haagen-Dazs, or Anitas, which is the best ice cream in the city.”

New York City ice cream trucks offer students delectable frozen desserts that satisfy them during long spring school days and will continue to do so throughout this upcoming summer.
