Treats Truck Conecakes and Dessert Nachos Return This Week

Kim from the Treats Truck just sent word that in honor of their appearance on tonight’s new Food Network show Kid in a Candy Store (airing at 8:30pm, so watch!) they’ll be bringing back two of their most popular specialty items.  Conecakes go on sale tomorrow, and Dessert Nachos will appear on Wednesday.  Both will be sold from the truck through the end of the week.  Follow the truck on Twitter or on the ML Twitter Tracker for locations. (We’re guessing this is what they were filming back in April?)

Treats Truck Brings Back Dessert Nachos Tomorrow for the Food Network

Remember the dessert nachos that the Treats Truck served during the “This is Why Your Fat” scavenger hunt through Midtown back in October? Well, it looks like it caught the eye of the Food Network!  Tomorrow the Food Network will be hanging out with the Treats Truck all day long, and they want their fans to come out and be a part of the show (or not, if you just want treats.)  Kim will be serving two of her famous specials (Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes & Dessert Nachos) plus a news special: Kitchen Sink Crispy Squares, as well as all their regular treats. Plus, when you get one of the featured specials, she’ll throw in an extra cookie on the house!  The truck will be at their regular Tuesday spot (38th & 5th Ave), but will begin dishing out the sweets a little later from 2 or 2:30 and stay open until 5 or 5:30.

Treats Truck/Papa Perrone Monday Mashup (Now w/ Schnitzel!)

Remember when the Treats Truck parked next to the Papa Perrone truck (on 55th btw. Park+Mad) a few months back?  They had such a good time they’re making it a permanent Monday thing starting today.  It’s a match made in heaven as far as we’re concerned. (UPDATE: Papa Perrone won’t be out today, but the Treats Truck will still be there! UPDATE #2: According to the ML Twitter Tracker, the Schnitzel & Things Truck is taking Papa Perrone’s spot for the day. Schnitzel + Treats = Happy Lunchers.)

How to Eat at 10 Carts For $10: A Thursday Street Food Tour of Midtown

Have you ever been kind of jealous of the winners of Zach’s various cart tours?  Even though I work in midtown and can hit the great midtown carts anytime I want, there’s something to be said about the fun of taking on a bunch of them at once.  To really do it right you need strength in numbers, so when I learned that a couple of my friends from Seattle, would be in town and free for lunch during the week, I started plotting potential food adventures.  Both of them regularly read Blondie & Brownie and they were jealous of the midtown cart/food truck scene.  The more I thought about it, the more convinced I became that we should try to hit as many carts for as many different types of foods as possible and with that in mind, may a present Brownie’s Cart Canyon Tour: 10 carts/10 cuisines/$10 a person…

A Look Inside Kim “Treats Truck” Ima’s Apartment: The New York Tims real estate section paid a little visit to Treats Truck sweetheart Kim Ima this weekend, giving us an inside look at her second home (the one without wheels and tasty sweets.) I have to say her decorating tastes just endear her to my heart even more!

This Mexican is All About the Treats Truck

I came across the Treats Truck yesterday and the winter special is a cup of Mexican hot chocolate for $2.25 made out of Abuelita cocoa. She also makes an amazing Mexican chocolate brownie ($3) that is perfect for dark chocolate lovers, and anyone (like me) that doesn’t like a sickly sweet snack. It’s moist and abundant in flavor. Check it out now! Dooo iiiiiiit!  The Treats Truck is on 45th and 6th today from Noon to 3:30pm.

The Treats Truck Will Make You Personalized Valentine’s Day Cookies

Heart Cookies '09 from the TT

Valentine’s Day might not be until Sunday, but the Treats Truck will be hitting the road with their V-Day treats starting today. This year they’ll have heart shaped sugar cookies with red sprinkles for $1.50, bags of red and pink sugar heart shaped cookies for $6.00, heart shaped linzer cookies for $2.00, and they will also be doing personalized heart shaped sugar cookies. The Treats Truck crew says they can personalize the cookies with anything… “A name, phrase …whatever will fit! ” The personalized cookies will run $2.50 for a big cookie or $2.00 for a small cookie and you need to preorder by phone or email. Think of it as you chance to create your own Conversations Hearts. I’m sure you can come up with something better than “Fax Me” or “Foxy Lady.” Check their twitter account, or the ML Twitter Tracker, for their exact location.

Treats Truck Forced to 55th Today

45th Street’s loss is Midtown North’s gain today! The Treats Truck was forced out of its normal Wednesday spot this morning by a movie production, so instead Kim decided to park on 55th btw. Park+Madison. (Thankfully it didn’t effect the Kiwk Meal cart, so I got my farewell lunch!)  You can find the Treats Truck right next to the Papa Perrone Truck until 3:15 this afternoon, and if all goes well it might end up being a regular spot for the Treats Truck… so get out there and support!

Treats Truck is Taking Wednesday Spot Requests

It looks like Wednesday afternoons are going to be a wild-card for the Treats Truck.  From their weekly newsletter: “Starting this week, each late Wednesday afternoon, we will pop up in new spots people have requested! This week, the UES. Next week, somewhere near 26th St and 11th Avenue. After that, hmmm….any suggestions?” Don’t worry though, this new afternoon thing won’t effect their lunch schedule. The Treats Truck will still be parked on 45th and 6th every Wednesday from Noon to 3pm.

Last Chance for the Treats Truck in 2009: The Treats Truck is gearing up for the short holiday week by making a rare Monday appearance on 38th and 5th today from 1 to 3:30pm. Tuesday and Wednesday will be a normal schedule, but starting on Thursday the truck goes on vacation until 2010.
