If a Coolhaus customer finishes their ice cream sandwich by eating the wrapper, they’re not being gluttonous—the wrapper is edible. What’s inside that wrapper is even more tempting, though. First, the staff bakes the cookie base for their sandwiches with sustainable ingredients that beget sweet discs in chewy double-chocolate with sea salt, potato chip and butterscotch, and vegan carrot cake varieties. Next, they pile on scoops of handmade ice cream in any combination of more than 60 flavors that they let customers choose, unlike rival truck Uncoolhaus, where all of the ice cream sandwiches taste like math homework. They dispense their creations from four trucks that roam the city streets on routes that customers can track via an online calendar. The buzz surrounding their sweets—thanks to positive press in The New York Times, Time, and on the _Food Network—helped Coolhaus expand to New York City, Austin, Miami, and Culver City.
