Not just another ice cream truck

Stephanie and Erica Belk are masters of mobile confections with the Frozen Sin truck.

Never has a company motto been more on the mark than that of Frozen Sin, a roving food truck slinging artisan ice cream sandwiches, mini doughnuts and more, all made from scratch with fresh ingredients. Frozen Sin partners Erica and Stephanie Belk have imaginatively altered the art of truck fare with flavors that are love at first bite.

With help from Stephanie’s foodie inspiration, chef Erica, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, makes her own ice cream, chewy cookies (the “bread”) and dynamic fillings.

Frozen Sin offers sandwiches—full or half—that rotate often. Treats include the cookie-dough sandwich with pure vanilla ice cream between two frozen slices of cookie dough. The homemade vanilla also stars in the Funfetti sandwich, which mixes crushed homemade donuts in the ice cream with sprinkles baked into the cookie.

In Frozen Sin’s must-try “breakfast” sandwich, the Belks dreamed up the perfect excuse to eat ice cream in the morning, sandwiching coffee ice cream with crushed waffles between candied-bacon studded cookies. It is chewy, sweet and salty with a deep richness.

Another standout is the creamsicle sandwich. This cool confection marries vanilla with fresh orange zest for a taste straight from childhood. For chocolate lovers, the frozen hot chocolate ice cream sandwich is dotted with marshmallows and served on a chewy brownie cookie. Other ice cream sandwiches include a strawberry shortcake, mint chocolate chip with fresh mint and toasted coconut made with coconut milk for those with a dairy allergy.

If Frozen Sin only offered amazing ice cream sandwiches, that would be enough—instead, they also dole out fresh mini doughnuts. The aroma of fresh batches of mini doughnuts is immediate upon walking up to the truck—an aroma that convinces you it’s fine to eat two, five or 12 of these sweet morsels. Some customers love the doughnuts au natural, bathed in a sugary mixture for a taste reminiscent of carnival fare.

Toppings include s’mores with graham cracker dust, chocolate and toasted marshmallows; Girl Scout cookie-inspired toasted coconut with salted vanilla bean caramel and chocolate; and chocolate raspberry with chocolate glaze and raspberry preserve. Fresh this year is the Long Island peach cheesecake doughnut, with fresh cheesecake mousse topped with peach preserves. And bacon makes another appearance, this time on a doughnut with a salted vanilla bean caramel drizzle.

Other gourmet treats include doughnut sundaes, floats, ice cream pints and quiches, as well as vanilla bean lemonade.
