$3 will buy you happiness at this food truck

The “it” flavor of ice cream? My vote goes to salted caramel chocolate-covered pretzel.

I found it at The Rolling Oasis Treats Truck at Courthouse Square. It reminds me of old-fashioned homemade vanilla ice cream, with bits of caramel with a hint of salt. What makes it outstanding, however, are pieces of chocolate-covered pretzels.

This ice cream is sort of like a miracle drug. It’s not just the combination of wonderful flavors and textures; it’s how it made me feel while I was eating it – deliriously happy and content, all for just $3.

When a heat wave hits, there’s nothing like ice cream to cool you off and chill you out. Have you ever noticed that it’s physically impossible to eat ice cream and be angry at the same time?

Doing its part to help America remain the world’s highest per capita consumer of ice cream, The Rolling Oasis serves other flavors, such as butter pecan, chocolate, mint chip, chocolate peanut butter and cookies’n’cream. The food truck gets the icy treats from Johnson's Real Ice Cream in Columbus, which has been serving ice cream to Ohioans since 1950.

The food truck also offers milkshakes and smoothies.
