Say "woof" to the Phydough Truck, a CoolHaus collaboration serving cookies, ice cream and "phydough" (for home baking) all made especially for your pooch. To please those with discriminating tastes, all of the truck's offerings are prepared with organic, human-grade and locally-sourced ingredients.
The Phydough Truck offers not only cookies and ice cream but also--what else?-- ice cream sandwiches inspired by a real-life pooch.
Although I feared I might be barking up the wrong tree in trying Phydough for myself, my newest roommate happily volunteered to act as taste-taster.
After arriving at the truck on a sunny Sunday morning, J and I ordered a scoop of PB & bacon ice cream ($2.00) for our girl Mona because, if the things she licks off the floor are any indication, she is a fan of both.
After a sniff and a quizzical first lick, Mona sunk her snout into the cup and did not emerge until she had licked it clean. So much for J's argument that she might not like the ice cream's chilly temperature.
We also picked up three cookies ($5.00)-- red velvet, peanut butter and original.
Quite the princess, Mona also got a sample of her red velvet cookie. After gobbling up her half- cookie, she jumped off the seat to lick up the crumbs that had fallen on the floor of the car!
Is $5.00 for three cookies and $4.00 for an ice cream sandwich a bit steep? Sure. Did I care? Not one bit. Seeing Mona's ice cream-plastered nose was priceless. Plus, they're artisanal $5.00 cookies...right?
