FAB FOUR: Track Down These 4 Sweets Trucks for National Ice Cream Month

Right now, at this very moment, you’re in the midst of the coolest, most refreshing, most delicious month on the calendar—July. Actually, NATIONAL-ICE-CREAM-MONTH-JULY to be exact. For 31 days, you have one duty and one duty only: to enjoy this quintessential summertime treat anytime, anywhere, in any form! Think of it as a must-have reward for those grueling days frolicking at Mother’s Beach with your besties, SUPing on the harbor, biking down Marvin Braude Trail and stuffing yourself silly on amazing harborside meals. After all, having an unforgettable Marina del Rey summer works up and appetite.

Looking for some prime ice cream spots to hit up? Well, instead of sharing a list of the great shops around town (aka: Coldstone in Marina del Rey; Venice’s Salt & Straw, Kippy’s or the new Ben & Jerry’s; and Ginger’s Divine or CoolHaus™ in Culver City), we did some tasty research and found the most delectable cool-sweets trucks you’ll want to track down this month. Of course, the trucks aren’t in our neck of the woods ALL of the time, but if you keep an eye on the food truck calendars (especially Beach Eats), you’ll know when they’re coming on through.
