I have to say, perfect option for post beach treat or post dinner dessert. I loved that some options were gluten free and sugar free.

Go try, it is as delicious as advertised. The cookies really are freshly baked and served warm underneath creamy goodness.

This innovative food truck is on the main highway on Chincoteague Island, and offers a marvelous array of cookies (the base), ice creams (the "meat"), and toppings (the - well, the toppings). As a dessert fanatic I can vouch that this is a quality experience...not to be missed.More

Our family of three couldn't wait to try this food truck, and we were not disappointed. Their specialty is warm homemade cookies topped with your choice of ice cream and toppings. Super indulgent, but so delicious. I would have gone back every night if I...didn't know how bad it was for my waistline. Haha. If we ever return to the island, this will be my first stop. Highly recommend!More

This is a fun concept with lots of options. Features Hershey ice cream, lots to choose from. The cookie was warm, and the number of topping options were almost overwhelming. An enjoyable indulgent vacation experience.

We found this to be an excellent treat during our adventure on the island. It is exactly as the name suggests pick your cookie and keep going until you have the perfect dessert for you! It was allergy friendly and the people working were very...knowledgeable. A great late afternoon treat!More
