Nothing says summer like a fresh, frozen treat from the ice cream truck. Who hasn’t kicked off the season by eating Spongebob and Sonic’s melting faces and misplaced gumball eyes? While those treats are classics, if you want a change of pace, check out these three ice cream trucks.

Coolhaus, Multiple Cities

Named after the architectural movement, Coolhaus specializes in ultra-premium ice cream sandwiches. Here, you’ll find adventurous signature flavors like Balsamic Fig & Mascarpone, Bananas Foster, and Thai Town Crunch, which features Thai tea ice cream with white chocolate and fortune cookies.

Plus, the founders’ love story is just as sweet as the ice cream itself. Natasha Case and Freya Estreller forged their bond when they repurposed a decommissioned postal van and headed to Coachella with nothing more than their handcrafted frozen sweets and whole lot of determination. The rest is history — since then, the ice cream power couple has expanded the operation to include 10 ice cream trucks, which can be found throughout Los Angeles, Dallas, and New York City.

Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, New York City

What discussion of awesome ice cream trucks is complete without the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck? Since 2009, Douglas Quint and Bryan Petroff have been dishing out some of the finest desserts on the road. At this repurposed Chevy step van, you’ll find delectable soft serve with creative toppings, like sea salt, fig, sriracha, and oil, alongside traditional garnishes like chocolate chips and granola. You can also opt for ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, and milkshakes.

Hello! Ice Cream, various locations in Michigan

Despite its name, Hello! Ice Cream puts the spotlight on its artisan gelato. From this beautifully restored 1965 International Metro van, you can purchase delightful classics or unique flavors like Chocolate Espresso Stout, made with Ann Arbor craft beer, Sesame Fig, and Zabaglione, made with marlsala wine, cinnamon, nutmeg, and wine-infused raisins, almonds, and figs.
