If you have not tried Carnival Barkers Ice Cream, which is located at the very fun Truck Yard on Greenville Avenue, we have a new reason for you to slip on by for a taste. The lastest flavor uses local brownie maven Iris McCallister’s Oh* Brownie to make this Blonde Brownie Nutella ice cream. Seriously good stuff.
The address is 5624 Sears Street, located just across the road from Trader Joes on Lowest Greenville.
How many Twinkies could you stuff in your belly? I am thinking personally maybe 2. The packages come portion controlled for a reason. However, the good people at the Truck Yard wish to take it to a more epic count. Over the next two weeks the Truck Yard will be profiling ten competitive eaters on their Facebook page, followed up with a Twinkie throw-down Saturday, November 16th at 4pm. Contestants will wash down the sponge cakes with a few tallboys. Defibrillator optional.
The Truck Yard is an overwhelming smash success you go by mere body count each night, including those precarious evenings when most stay huddled at home watching television, or manicuring their cats. Last evening we checked out the food truck park located on the sizzling hot Lowest Greenville Avenue area directly south of Trader Joes on Sears Street. The recent flack that Dallas Morning News critic shoveled at the venue made us even more excited to sit and sip, since we seem to have polar opposite ideas on what is fun to do and chew in Dallas.
The ice cream vendor Carnival Barker was easily found directly at the front facing Trader Joes just under the giant neon ice cream cone. Plenty of guests were able to locate and devour the house-made ice cream as when we visited about 7pm last night the owner was fresh out of product. Aaron Barker stated that he has been upping the amount of ice cream he makes each day and is now looking for more equipment to keep up with demand. He did have a handful of frozen bananas for sale, and we all know that there is always money in the banana stand. We have tasted the Barker ice cream on numerous occasions and love the stuff. Plenty of fun, inventive flavors when they are in stock. Continue reading
