#NationalIceCreamDay was Sunday and I'm sure everybody including myself treated themselves to a cool treat especially during the heat. However, for those who missed it there is a traveling ice cream truck in Tyler that serves up some of the best and biggest ice cream sandwiches I've ever seen and I was able to experience it first hand.

Pokey O's in Tyler is a made-to-order ice cream truck that creates custom made ice cream sandwiches.  The ice cream sandwich I had was snickerdoodle with sea salt caramel - I enjoyed it so much I had to share my experience and give you a tip on where you can find them in East Texas.  Pokey O's Ice Cream Truck will be at the following places this week:

  • Tuesday (7/18) 4:30-7:30pm
    Texas East Gymnastics (1937 Deerbrook Dr)
  • Wednesday (7/19) 12-4pm
    Lindale Floral
  • Thursday (7/20) 4-6pm

So if you are on your lunch hour, a date night or with family and friends make it your business to treat yourself to one of these Pokey O's Ice Cream sandwiches. You will thank me later. Or be angry because all you want is an ice cream sandwich and you can't find the truck!
