The “Killer Combo” Was One Of The Cool(Haus)est Promotions Ever

We are one of the biggest ice cream eaters we know of – and Coolhaus make some of the best ice cream sandwiches around. It’s a match made in heaven!.

Even better is when the ice cream sammies are FREE!

Last week we told you about the Coolhaus/Showtime Dexter promotion that was going on for 5 days. Hopefully you had a chance to get one.

Yesterday, on the last day, they finally came to our neighborhood. The wrapped truck parked on Hudson St by the Bleecker St playground (where my kids played when they were little).

The idea of giving away free ice cream sammies by a playground makes perfect sense, but in this case, the photo of Dexter under wraps and a blood-spattered truck design made that a questionable place to park.

Luckily, West Village parents are pretty laid back, and the guy in the truck told me they didn’t get any complaints from parents.

They were savvy enough to know that freshly-made ice cream sandwiches trump all.

A double-dark chocolate cookie on one side, a snickerdoodle cookie on the other, and Tahitian vanilla ice cream in the middle – with a bloody red cherry swirl.

You can see why this was one of our favorite promotions since we started New York Street Food nearly 4 years ago.
