dessert delivery / food truck futures

Dear Dessert Oasis,

Do you know of any dessert delivery services; specifically chocolate desserts?

Also, what kind of dessert food trucks exist? Is that the wave of the future?

Sincerely,
I want that but I’m too lazy

Dear IWTBITL,

I do not know of any dessert-specific delivery services, but most restaurants that deliver will obvs deliver their desserts too, and many have at least a chocolate cake of some sort on their menu. Here’s a pro tip: order dessert whenever you order food delivery, don’t just settle for the free fortune cookie – it will help you meet the minimum delivery amount, and even if you’re not really feeling like dessert when you order, you’ll be happy to forget/remember that you have dessert for later.

Here are two good food delivery sites that serve most major cities and will send you coupons off future orders:

grubhub.com
eat24.com

Re: food trucks: the future is now. You can find trucks specializing in just about anything – not just ice cream or late-night tacos. I suggest you search/follow your fave trucks on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to keep track of their schedules. They won’t deliver to your front door, but they might just be parked right around the corner, or they could be gathered together for a food truck fest! Jackpot!!!

Here are some good ones to follow, depending on your city:

Los Angeles
Coolhaus – ice cream sandwiches served in edible wrappers!
Crème Caramel – custards, bread puddings, a whole bunch more
Carmela – artisinal/seasonal ice creams and sorbets

New York
The Treats Truck – cookies, brownies, dessert nachos (also non-desserty grilled cheese)
Big Gay Ice Cream – old school soft serve done up with crazy toppings

Florida
Bold City Pops – ice pops featuring whatever’s in season (Jacksonville)

Chicago
Flirty Cupcakes – cupcakes, duh!
The Doughnut Vault – hot donuts until they run out
Pleasant House Bakery – British sweets (and savories) like sticky toffee pudding, treacle tart and banoffee pie

Don’t gotta gotta get up to get down,
Dessert Oasis

Have a dessert question?  Email me at courtneysconza@gmail.com – from funnel cakes to fondue fountains, if it has sugar, I’ve probably eaten it.
