It's Summer! Hang Out With The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck!

It's that time again. Time to post about something I'll never get my hands on. But if you live in New York, you can! Welcome back, The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.


Doug Quint and his partner Bryan Petroff started the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck in 2009. Quint is professional bassoonist but decided to venture off during the Summer time when he wasn't touring with the Zephyros Winds.

The BGICT sells ice cream with unusual toppings. Check out some samples below.

Chocolate Ice Cream and Cayenne Pepper Topping

Vanilla Ice Cream with Toasted Curry Coconut Topping

Vanilla Ice Cream with Olive Oil and Sea Salt Topping

Vanilla Ice Cream with Wasabi Pea Dust Topping

Vanilla Ice Cream with Berries and Saba Topping

When you visit the website (which I imagine you'll be doing), you'll catch some staples of the truck's menu.

Intrigued? Visit the website to find out where the truck will be. If you don't feel like trailing after a truck, you can visit the Gay Ice Cream SHOP! Yes, that's right. What once was a sole truck has branched out to an ice cream shop.
