When is Coolhaus’s $6 Ice Cream Sandwich Worth It?

Twitter told me that Coolhaus was parked next to Bian Dang last week, and when I saw how long the Bian Dang line was, I decided I would have ice cream for lunch because I’m an adult and that’s what adults do: eat whatever they want for lunch. Right?

Right… even if that’s a $6 ice cream sandwich…

Pre-Game for Thanksgiving with Coolhaus’ Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

Coolhaus Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Sandwich
As an ardent lover of all things pumpkin, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to try Coolhaus’ fall ice cream flavors. They other day day after missing out on the Mastercard Priceless deal, I consoled myself with a pumpkin ice cream chocolate chip cookie sandwich. The ice cream was dead on for pumpkin pie–just the right amount of cinnamon and spices. If they had their double chocolate cookies I totally would have gone with those (or at least one of those–you can actually mix and match your “floor” and “roof” cookies). At $6, it’s a pricey treat for sure, but if you love pumpkin pie and want to get your fix in midtown before T-Day, this is a tasty splurge. Their Dirty Mint Chip hot chocolate is next on my to-try list. Has anyone tried their hot chocolates?

Coolhaus Now Carrying Hot Chocolate and Fall Flavors

But Coolhaus is still on their streets and they’re packing hot chocolate in addition to special fall ice cream flavors including Bourbon Pecan Pie, Spiced Pumpkin Pie, & Sweet Potato with Marshmallow and pumpkin pie cookies. Besides their signature hot chocolate they will be debuting hot chocolates inspired by ice cream flavors including Dirty Mint Hot Chocolate, Sea Salt Caramel Hot Chocolate, Chocolate Chipotle Hot Chocolate and Nutella Hot Chocolate. Follow Coolhaus on Twitter @CoolhausNY or via the ML Twitter Tracker. Early adopters let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Luncher Formz Takes Down Coolhaus’ $20 Skyscraper

Last week we casually mentioned Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck’s skyscraper challenge (it’s a $20, multi-layered, ice cream sandwich that they’ll give you for free if you can finish it by yourself.)  And in what should be surprising to nobody, a Midtown Lunch’er stepped up to take on the beast.  Congrats to Lunch’er Formz for being the “first ever New Yorker to take down the skyscraper”. Way to represent for the ML community! He was kind enough to send us a photo of the 4 story “building”.

Coolhaus Ice Cream Truck Returns Today


I’ll admit that I was a little skeptical when I started reading about Coolhaus’ ice cream sandwiches. Sure, the reviews were great, and yes, it’s hard to find, but $5 for an ice cream sandwich? Do I look like I’m made of money here? Blondie’s endorsement tipped the scales and last week I decided to give this LA originated truck a look-see. Read more »

Coolhaus Truck Officially Opens Today; Melt Shop Serving Melt Bakery Sandos

Chocolate Chip & Strawberry

It might have taken a little longer than expected, but LA’s Coolhaus ice cream sandwich truck is officially open for business today. Sneak previews of what’ll be available have been around the city for the past few weeks; I was lucky enough to snap this Chocolate Chip with Strawberry ice cream sandwich at Marlow & Daughters. Like Melt Bakery’s sandwiches from Sweetery, it’s going to run you $5 per sandwich, but it is a pretty tasty treat. I don’t even really like strawberry ice cream and I gobbled this sandwich down. They’re hoping to snag a spot on 46th between 5th and 6th, but make sure to check their Twitter (@CoolhausNY) or the ML Twitter Tracker before heading out.

And that’s not the only ice cream sandwich news today…
