FRONT STREET FOODS: Oreos & donuts & cookie dough, oh my!

Now, there’s outta-bounds ice cream, and then there’s ice cream so far outta bounds it takes out the anthem singer before he can sing “All Lives Matter.” This, my friends, is totally the latter. My super fresh bros at Junked Food Co had already won me over with their mac ‘n cheese, jalapeno Cheetos, Dr. Pepper pulled pork taco, but this cookie dough, Oreo, glazed doughnut ice cream just took our relationship to a whole new level:

OK, let’s break it down. You’ve got some ice-cold vanilla soft-serve painted black with Oreo crumbles, great big chunks of glazed donuts and a peanut butter drizzle sauce. But what really makes it is the cookie dough, which serves as a hard, crunchy vessel for the rest of this dish. Don’t eat this ice cream if you’re counting calories, cuz you probably can’t count that high!

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!
