Cool Haus Ice Cream (LV's LA)

I love ice cream. Love it! back in the day when the familiar sound of the ice cream truck had us all tripping over our own feet to catch it, we could expect a bomb pop, a nutty buddy, a 50/50 bar, an Eskimo pie and that familiar ice cream sandwich with the chocolate cookies filled with vanilla ice cream. Those familiar traditional frozen treats are now in the company of ice cream with unfamiliar curiosity invoking flavors like chicken and waffle. Yes, it's not just for breakfast anymore.

The ice cream truck has gotten a makeover and gone gourmet. The owner of Coolhaus is an ex-architect who left the practice to start up a food truck business, and the architectural theme uses the clever play on words Cool Haus as in Cool House an ice cream sandwich with a cookie roof, floor, and ice cream walls.  This great architectural concept could also be viewed through the eyes of fashion. If there was a Versace, Valentino or Betsy Johnson of Ice Cream, Cool Haus would be it.

Bold flavors that don't seem to go together are insanely good. Kind of like: Oh my God, you wore those purple bell bottoms with yellow shoes a polka dot top and a red purse? That's actually a killer combo. You have to see that to appreciate it. With Cool Haus, you have to taste it to believe it.

After playing hide and seek with the trucks and finally catching them. It was worth the chase.

Hello Cool Haus!

Fried Chicken and Waffle Ice Cream on freshly baked snicker-doodle cookies
If you had told me I would eat chicken and waffle ice cream and like it, I would have looked at you like it was time for the men in white coats to take you away. Well, I tried it and let me tell you, I LOVED IT! I didn't just like it. I loved it! 

My taste buds didn't know what to do. They were confused and happy. Two fresh snicker doodle cookies held together by fried chicken and waffle ice cream. So how was it? The ice cream was buttery, sweet and had a rich maple finish and a hint of crunchy saltiness. Delicious! or as the kids would say, "SICK!" In addition to the amazing ice cream sandwich itself, the experience was enhanced by the edible wrapper each ice cream sandwich is served in. Jaw-dropping flavors, great service and environmentally responsible. This is my kind of company.

If you don't like ice cream, the folks at Cool Haus will make a believer out of you. During my Cool Haus ice cream truck experience, there were so many intriguing flavor combos that the phrase "you show me yours and I'll show you mine" had strangers chatting like long lost friends. And then I had to find a place so that me and my Cool Haus ice cream sandwich could be alone. 

Just me and my sammie.

Ice cream just shouldn't make a woman feel like that and I was giving this sammie some serious public displays of affection. 

And it was so good that I had to have that feeling again, so I showed up at their storefront in Culver City. The service was excellent and they let me sample every flavor in the freezer. I loved every single one! And then I settled on brown butter candied bacon ice cream with a Potato Chip Butterscotch cookie. 

I told you they were insane, but in the best way. The cookie was soft and moist with the perfect hint of sweet and salty which was a great compliment for the brown butter candied bacon ice cream. After I devoured my ice cream sandwich, they gave me a complimentary molten chocolate cake ice cream to make my sinful experience complete. All I have to say is: ooh ooh ooh...

Potato Chip Butterscotch cookie with candied bacon 
ice cream. YUM!

Its unbelievable. Seriously.

Are you curious yet?

When they said Molten chocolate cake ice cream, they weren't playing. So rich and chocolatey!

Red Velvet Cookies for your Ice Cream sandwich. 

They have an amazing selection of rotating flavors to choose from. You start by picking your cookie.

The flavors vary each day, but every last one I tasted was very good.

Cool Haus has over 50 tongue twisting flavors. Some of the unique flavor combinations are: Chicken and Waffle, Brown Butter Bacon, Rosemary, Mascarpone Fig, Thai Iced Tea, sweet potato and marshmallow, red velvet, spicy pineapple and cilantro,  and so many other flavors to tease your tasebuds. They also have vegan and gluten free options such as: vegan chocolate truffle banana cookies and coconut almond. An ice cream sandwich at Cool Haus is five bucks, but for the quality of ice cream, it is worth the money.

I love Cool Haus, but If I don't exercise some restraint this love affair with Cool Haus could put me in a sweet sugar coma:-)
