Belgian Waffles and Ice Cream concession/cart Thu, 02/23/06 2:44 AM (permalink)
Has anyone here heard of or had any experience selling hot belgian waffles with vanilla ice cream from a cart?
(I think they used to be formed into a cone and the ice cream placed into it??)

Are there any other less common items, sold by cart/mobile-concession that stand out?

    I saw a couple of vendors in Athens Greece selling exactly that. Never got one though as the crepe stands were just to good and addictive. Now that would be a neat thing to have here in the states.

    There are several companies out there that will provide you with the waffle bakers at no cost but you have to buy their product mixes..which are fantastic IMO. Shoot me an email and I can give you some contact numbers if you are interested.

      I've heard people rave about how great that combination of a hot waffle wrapped around vanilla ice cream was in the summer. They used to be sold by pushcarts in downtown Detroit (prior to the 1960s as I understand).
      As far as needing additional info ... I've not come down off the fence on the idea of purchasing some sort of cart of concession as a hobby yet ... still just chewing it over.
      Thanx for the reply, Corn.

          Lincoln Park in Massachusetts? Are you sure? Lincoln Park closed in 1987 and I don't believe it ever had a boardwalk. Unless there's another Lincoln Park; but if there is, it didn't show up on Google.

            Just curious about exactly what the item is. Is it the regular waffle cone? A special type of waffle?

            Have'nt seen any like in Oklahoma or Texas from a festival booth or street cart.
