Treats Truck Offering Free Delivery on Wednesdays: Midtown has been Treats Truck-less for three weeks, but it looks like they're doing everything they can to help us addicts get our fix.  For a limited time only the Treats Truck will be offering free delivery in Midtown from Noon to 4pm every Wednesday. The only catch is there is a $10 minimum order, so gather up some officemates and call or email your order today.

Treats Truck Decides to Leave Midtown Under Pressure From the Police

It seems as if the ramp up in police pressure on the food trucks of Midtown has claimed its first permanent victim. The Treats Truck sent out this unbelievably sad email to their followers this morning:

To my dear customers,

We will not be midtown for the time being. The police have let us know that they no longer want food trucks in the midtown area. Two of our spots dear to our hearts (and our first two regular spots since the early days) have been 45th & 6th Ave and 38th & 5th Ave. We have so many wonderful regulars, and you all have made serving you such a pleasure. We are so sad to have to take our truck elsewhere. We hope to be able to return someday. For now, we cannot. We wish we could. You have all made the past four years very special. You can always order for delivery for your offices or come by our new spots. You can call to find out where we are each day.

Lemon Squares Return to the Treats Truck


With cold and dreary weather in the forecast for the near future, it’s always nice to have a little treat to look forward to. The other day as I was walking by the Treats Truck, I took a moment to peep in the case. Those of you who read our blog know that Blondie and I have tried about 97% of the menu at the Treats Truck. But I hadn’t tried their lemon squares, until now. Read more »

It’s Gingerbread Time at the Treats Truck!

Treats Truck
You know it’s the holiday season when ginger treats start popping up. The other day, courtesy of the ML Twitter Tracker, I saw that Treats Truck was packing gingerbread men. Given Blondie and my devotion to all things Treats Truck (if you regularly read our blog, you might have noticed that we’ve reviewed just a few of Kim’s treats…) I had to go check it out.

Be on the Food Network: The Food Network will be taping a short segment at the Treats Truck this morning and they're hoping that some of their regulars come by to make it on TV.  The truck will be parked on 38th and 5th starting around 11am with a full truck load of treats (plus extra kitchen sink krispies.) Don't want to be on TV?  It will be business as usual from Noon to 3pm.

Treats Truck Adds Carrot Cake to Their Specials Menu

Blondie and I have tried nearly every treat to come off the Treats Truck. Still every now and then Kim manages to surprise us with a new addition to the menu. Last week I happened to glance at the specials menu and noticed carrot cake. Being a big fan of their pumpkin cake, I clearly had to give their carrot cake a try.

Do You Miss the Treats Truck?: Schnitzel & Things isn't the only truck that got a jump start on Labor Day weekend... the Treats Truck also took the week off, but if you find yourself missing Kim too much there's a great interview on Fork in the Road that should keep you warm and fuzzy until she returns on Tuesday.
