I was so sad last year when the Big Gay Ice Cream truck came to LA and left before I was able to sample its goods. All the photos that popped up on instagram and facebook had me drooling (though the lines looked pretty yuck), so imagine my excitement when I read this morning that it’s BACK!

What’s the big deal about The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck? I think people dig it because it’s a mishmash of old and new: old-school soft serve adorned with not-so-old-school toppings like sea salt, olive oil, and beyond. Better than the creations themselves are their names, I think. There’s the “Bea Arthur” (vanilla soft serve, dulce de leche syrup, and Nilla Wafer crumbs), the “Salty Pimp” (vanilla soft serve, dulce de leche syrup, sea salt, and a crispy chocolate shell), Cococone, Mermaid Sundae, and more. I also can’t help but love how the truck is decked out in rainbows and sparkly fringe. It feels so 80s, so very My Little Pony-esque.
