Gorgeous New England: The Cookie Monstah (Boston's Mobile Cookie Truck)

My mom and I were out and about on a shopping trip when we walked up upon The Cookie Monstah, a mobile cookie truck.  In one quick whiff of  fresh baked cookies, Mom and I stood asking "should we get a cookie NOW or should we shop first?"  You're probably thinking "Why couldn't they do both?"  Well, some things in life require your full attention and should not be done at the same time; Shopping AND eating good cookies fall into that category. We decided to look over the cookie menu (from afar) and come back after we shopped.  I think we set a record, we were done in a short time and right back to the truck.  Oh decisions, decisions! What should I get?  All of the cookies were lined up so pretty as if in a museum case.  The minute you relished one smell, an imaginary fragrant finger would grab you by the nostrils and lead you to another. Oh shoots! I'm really having a dilemma. I know I want the cookie n' ice cream option but what combination should I go with?  At this point I'm a happy but lost 5yr old. My Mom, not so much. She steps up, gestures for me to move over and says "While she's still deciding I'll take..." She rattles off about 3 or 4 cookies. What?! Really Mom!!  She then looks at me and smiles "I don't know which ONE I want so I will try the ones that sound good to me."  Myself and the very nice gentleman running the truck let out a laugh. He and I agreed, "She is a woman who knows what she wants and gets it."  

I finally chose the Cashew Turtle Ice Cream with the Signature Chocolate Chunk Cookie

In between our  my moment of indecision, we spoke with the gentleman about the truck. Sir, was this your brilliant idea? No, his sister Missy Gale is the owner and baker of  these delicious homemade cookies. This mother of four believes so much in the comfort of the chocolate cookie that she crafted up a plan to share her best cookie recipes with her friends, family and US!. Why thank YOU Missy Gale. Boston appreciates the fact that we can now get cookie wasted (cold milk included). If you need a cookie fix, the mobile cookie truck can be found in and around the Boston area, at special events in the Massachusetts, or get this, AT YOUR PRIVATE EVENT.  Yes, you can rent the truck! And if that's not in your budget, no worries, you can have a warm order of cookies delivered to you for less than $10 depending upon your Boston location.(click delivery Rate Card) So in the words Ms. Cookie Monstah herself, "Please come say hi, try a cookie or an ice cream sandwich, she looks forward to meeting you."

I can't remember what this  ice cream sandwich was called but it was delightful. We giggled all the way to the car while eating this Monstah.
