Free Scharffen Berger Cupcakes Are Totally Worth Seeking Out
Earlier this week we brought you the news that Street Sweets is partnering a number of businesses and bringing free treats to the streets on three different trucks. Yesterday I caught up with Truck #3 (aka the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Adventure wrapped truck) and I have to say, the free chocolate cupcake alone makes it worth checking out.
Hitting the truck sometime after they arrived on 46th street after 10am, I had a mere two minute wait for chocolate cupcake goodness. I was able to snag one for myself and one for my colleague. The cake was dark and moist and the frosting –made from Scharffen Berger Dark Chocolate, natch–was rich and fudgy. These were full size cupcakes, so you get a good sized treat for your wait.
On my way back from lunch at around 1:30, I spotted the truck in it’s afternoon spot on 49th street and there was a line about 25 people deep (and looked to be mostly midtown lunchers as opposed to the clueless/lucky tourists I spotted in line that morning). Still the line was moving fairly quickly.
Today was supposed to be the last day of the Scharffen Berger giveaway, but according to twitter Street Sweets has extended the cupcake give away to Friday. Huzzah!
