Wafels, Treats Truck & Cravings Bring the ‘This is Why You’re Fat Thunder!’
By the time you read this post, the guy in the photo above will have probably won the “This is Why You’re Fat Eat N Tweet Challenge”. He bought lunch for the guy at the front of a very very long NYC Cravings Truck line (just so he could photograph himself with their special), and I saw him with a plate of the Treats Truck “dessert nachos” (yes, you read that right), before @TIWYF had even twittered the Treats Truck location. (UPDATE: And it’s over. And in case you are wondering, yes- that is Nick McGlynn.)
But just because this guy won first, doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy one or more of the specials for yourself. I’m pretty sure all the trucks will continue to sell their special today, even after the contest has been won. Check them out, in all their glory, after the jump.
Wafels and Dinges is parked on 45th btw. 6+7th selling a “Double Liege Wafel Ice Cream Sandwich with smashed speculoos cookies & whipped cream.” It’s $8 but looks to be worth every single penny. (Thomas the owner was even spotted eating one, and said they might add it to the regular menu.)
The NYC Cravings Truck, which is on 53rd btw. Park+Lex, is serving their porken off the menu special (fried chicken + fried pork chops) with a special addition. Fried dumplings! I think this one might be $10, but I’m not positive.
DESSERT NACHOS!!!! Oh my lord that looks awesome. Courtesy of the Treats Truck, which is parked today on 38th and 5th. Don’t know how much this is, but quite frankly does it really matter? I think I know what I’m having for an afternoon snack!
I didn’t hit up the other three trucks, but found these photos of what they were serving on Twitter…
The Bistro Truck’s “Big Mouth Burger”. That… looks… amazing. They’re parked on 5th and 16th (and don’t pretend like some of you aren’t going to jump on the subway now for that thing.)

Cupcake Stop is on 5th btw. 22nd and 23rd selling… wait for it… cinnamon roll cupcakes (nice.)
And the final stop…
The Michel Cluizel Brownie Sundae at Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck 5th Ave & 23rd.
You know what… if anybody ate all 6 of these things, they deserve to win a street truck party for 25 of their friends!
