2020’s Tastiest Dessert Trucks for Valentine’s Day
Forget flowers and a card. Indulge your special someone’s sweet tooth with a culinary tour of New York’s best dessert trucks. From Funfetti® milkshakes topped with a Lucky Charms® donut to decadent Belgian waffles stuffed with strawberries, Nutella® and whipped cream, these NYFTA dessert trucks in the Big Apple are 2020’s most delicious destinations to treat your sweetheart to this Valentine’s Day.
GO “OVER THE TOP” AT CARNIVALE MILKSHAKE AND DONUT BAR
Few things sound as tasty as creamy milkshakes and a warm, moist donut, but combine the two and you have a decadently delicious dessert that’ll be the envy of every hopeless romantic.
Forget your run-of-the-mill Neapolitan ice cream or glazed donut. Instead, grab two straws and try a salted caramel milkshake topped with a freshly made caramel popcorn donut at New York’s Carnivale Milkshake and Donut Bar.
SAMPLE BELGIUM’S FINEST AT WAFFLES & DINGES
Imagine taking in the sights with a stroll along Brussels’ Grand Place, admiring the Maison du Roi while savoring a soft and chewy authentic Belgian waffle, oozing with dulce de leche and chocolate fudge.
From mouth-watering desserts that taste just like mom’s apple pie or an all-American banana split, spare yourself the jet-lag and treat your date to a taste of Belgium in the Big Apple at Waffles & Dinges.
A BATCH MADE IN HEAVEN AT CHIP NYC
What could be better on a cold New York day than a freshly baked cookie, warm and straight out of the oven? What if that cookie was stuffed, “s’mores style”? Even Cupid himself would be jealous of that way to win over your special someone.
Instead of an overpriced bottle of bubbly, ditch the cliched roses and champagne with a dessert to remember. Like, a classic “peanut butter and jelly cookie” or “red velvet hot chocolate” seasonal flavor from Chip NYC.
While the saying goes that “diamonds are a girl’s best friend, some may argue that a “batch made in heaven” may be the real key to unlocking your special someone’s heart.
BE AN “AMERICAN IN PARIS” AT LEILA’S CREPE STATION
In the 1951 musical “An American in Paris,” French actor Georges Guétary sings the film’s memorable “I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise.”
But, no need for Gene Kelly to build that stairway. Parisian paradise can be found a lot closer to home at Leila’s Crepe Station.
Imagine sitting by the fire on that chilly February night with “The Camper,” one of Leila’s signature desserts; a light and airy crepe filled with Hershey’s® chocolate, chocolate fudge, graham crackers, and a big scoop of ooey-gooey Marshmallow Fluff®.
