FRONT STREET FOODS: You scream, I scream, we all scream for Thai-style ice cream rolls!

Dude, it was like 270 degrees in Toronto this afternoon. I sweated right through my Affliction tank-top, bro! And on a day like today, ice cream pretty much sells itself. But when they chop it, drop it and open up shop it right in front of you, well, that’s more than worth the price of admission—which is actually just five bucks!

This stand is sandwiched in between Bacon Nation and a legit sammy shop, so it’s basically Murderer’s Row, bro. They offer up five different kinds of fresh fruit, and you can add as many as you want…oh, and Oreos. They also have Oreos.

Me, I went with the killer combo of banana, strawberry and Oreos. I dunno guy, but I’m pretty sure if the Righteous Brothers were triplets, they’d be this dish. Check out this Unchained Melody, son:

OK, let’s break it down. We’ve got great big bursts of banana, some sweetness from the strawberries, and just a hint of chocolate. The Oreos don’t add a ton of flavour once they’re ground into dust, so the fruit was definitely the star of the show. And even though they just made this in front of me, like, five minutes ago, it was still as cold as my brother from another mother, Vanilla Ice, Ice Baby!
