Big Gay Ice Cream Truck – the NYC Salty Pimp!

The “SALTY PIMP” SMACKED me around like the HO that I am, and demanded that I get my man-gina out there and bring him more money! WRAP YOUR LIPS around that cone! You better work!

Now that I had the pimp-hand smack me around a bit I was ready for my first Big Gay Ice Cream truck experience. Waiting on line in anticipation I was contemplating which creative concoction to try – the Salty Pimp, Bea Arthur, Gobbler, CoCoCone, Wasabi Cone, or the Monday Sundae. All have really inventive toppings and flavorings added to the wonderfully creamy and airy vanilla ice cream. There is no real way to describe this ice cream. It is worlds apart from Mr Softee, crazily better then many gelato stands, and beats the heck out of Pinkeberry and Tasti D-Lite. If there is one ice cream truck you should bring visiting friends and family to on a hot summer day it is this one. Hands down.

biggNow the thought of licking Bea Arthur was kinda weird, and having a Gobbler at a truck called Big Gay Ice Cream was just not my thing, so I had to get the Salty Pimp. The cone is lined with nutella (awesome!), filled with soft vanilla ice cream, Dulce de Leche, sea salt, and dipped in chocolate.

The cone is $5 and totally worth it, as this thing is huge, (insert joke here) and hard to get your mouth around. It will end up dripping down your fingers as you lick in salty glory. OHHHH MYYYYY!!!!

Yes, there is a long line to get your favorite ice cream. Each time I have walked by this truck there is always a line. It moves quickly and the guys who run the truck are great. Innovative flavors and toppings, wonderful tasting ice cream, and a cheap treat to boot.

The “SALTY PIMP” has made me his moneymaker. I better get out there and shake my booty for a few tricks to earn my treats!

    Too funny. I was having a hard time drooling while laughing. Guess I’m not as coordinated as I thought.

  10. Thanks for the lovely comment on my post on The District! I am a devoted Big Gay follower, and have taken multiple friends from out of town to experience their first Salty Pimp. One of my absolute favorite desserts in NYC!
