The Sweets Truck



LA is huge on food trucks. Angelinos like their grub tasty and they like it on the run. From The Grilled Cheese Truck to the Kogi Korean BBQ Truck, we seem to have it all.

And how do we know about these trucks? Twitter - it's a revolution! You follow these trucks and learn where they are at any given moment. And they are never idle. Some of them visit several locations in one day.

That's precisely how I found The Sweets Truck tonight. I was browsing through recent tweets and saw that this bakery on wheels was literally across the street from my apartment. After following for months, they were finally in my neighborhood. Awesome!


I walked over to the truck, browsed their goodies and was about to order a carrot cake cupcake when the helpful "trucker" suggested the cupcake's cousin, whoopie pie. She explained that they are delicious and offer more bang for your buck. Sold!

Oh em gee! That was probable the single best dessert item I have tasted in my entire life. No joke! It was so moist, rich, delectable, and fresh. I could taste the the juicy dark and white raisins. Perfection may just be an understatement.



Follow @TheSweetsTruck on Twitter to get your sugar fix! And if you aren't following me yet, please do so @jointhegossip!

That's great! I can just picture myself staring out the window waiting for the truck to come. I still get excited when I hear the music from the ice cream man going through the neighborhood! Have a great weekend. xo

Whyyy do I have to live in NY where the food truck craze hasn't caught on yet?! I'm crazy jealous, and now nothing is looking better to me than a whoopie pie! Damn the fact that I'm trying to cut back on sugar!

I wish we had food trucks like that rolling around my neighborhood, especially the grilled cheese truck! I think we have one cupcake truck and I do follow them on Twitter.

Whoopie pie is so good. Lancaster, PA is known for making these and the Amish people sure do know how to make them. The one you got sounds and looks delicious!
