The latest sweet treat to cool you off in the Texas heat is rolling its way through Lubbock.

Having just opened on May 22nd, I'm pleased to share Lubbock’s newest food truck: 806 Roll N' Go. The truck is serving up ice cream treats in the form of soft serve and rolled ice cream. That’s right, rolled ice cream. Serving up the creamy dessert in this way is not a new phenomenon (there are other places that do it in Lubbock), but it's still just as unique and fun to eat as you might expect.

If you've never heard of rolled ice cream, then you might be a bit confused. How do you roll ice cream? Well, you take the ice cream base, add your mix-ins, spread it out thin on a cold-top, and then let it solidify. Once it's nice and frozen, you take a scrapper tool and slide it along the cold-top to lift the ice cream up and form it into a roll. It's pretty cool.

You might be thinking: where can I find this place to get my hands on some of that ice cream? Due to the mobile nature of food trucks such as this one, you will need to keep an eye out on their social media. You can find 806 Roll N' Go on both Facebook and Instagram to catch their announcements on where they will be located. You can also find their menu on their social media.

There are a few items on there that I think look particularly interesting. One of them is the Bedrock, which features Fruity Pebbles cereal and, of course, rainbow sprinkles. Another that suits my taste and will absolutely be the first for me to try is the Strawberry Cheesecake. I'm a sucker for anything cheesecake. I guess you could say it's my favorite.

If you're out and about this summer and are looking for a nice cold treat, then check it out. I know I will be keeping an eye out to catch where they're next.
