Los Angeles Has Its Own Artisanal Ice Cream Truck

So, I was feeling really jealous after writing about the Van Leeuwen trucks that deliver organic ice cream to New York City’s not-so-huddled masses.

I wanted to find a Southern California clone—and I hit the jackpot.

Coolhaus has upped the ante here in Los Angeles, with a made-to-order ice cream sandwich buffet on wheels. And according to co-owner Natasha Case, her chilly treats are handmade with organic and all-natural ingredients, whenever possible.

As for available flavors, the choices range from the expected (vanilla bean, strawberry, Meyer lemon) to the eclectic: mascarpone balsamic fig, carrot cake, brown butter with candied bacon and even foie gras. Special flavors change seasonally, as with this week’s strawberry jalapeño, root beer and peach cobbler with bourbon.

Here’s the best part: Once you pick your ice cream, you can select the handmade cookies in which it’s sandwiched—from chocolate and snickerdoodle to chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin. (Brioche is also available.)

To find the truck on any given day, follow Coolhaus on Facebook or Twitter.
