The latest in WNY Food Truck news might throw you for a loop at first, make you cock your eye brow, and think to yourself “really?” After a few short minutes to ponder the possibilities I went right to -excited. Wouldn’t that be cool? To be able to get a glass of wine straight from a truck on the street? Yes, yes it would. Unfortunately, that’s not what we’re looking at here. If you want something that awesome roaming the streets you’ll have to find a state that has updated their liquor laws in the last 80 years, maybe some place in Europe.

The Wine Not Truck will be selling wine infused ice cream and wine flavored slushies. Flavors like Peach Zinfandel, Chocolate Cabernet and Black Cherry Merlot are what you have to look forward to. Under 21ers be warned – they I.D. (adults only). To be completely honest, I’m not sure how this will work. Will we feel tipsy after having a cone? Can we not drive after a few spoonfuls? Clearly, I have my concerns. Is a “wine flavored slushy” the same as a “wine slushy”? That’s not to say I don’t plan on checking it out ASAP – it could be great.  While my reactions range from surprise to excitement, disappointment and finally curiosity, I do look forward to trying it out on a warm summer day. (If only that was sooner than later.) What do you think?
