A pie lover’s croissant

Sweet trailer outside of Wicklow Heights
Vanilla Blue Creamery is a food trailer that’s bringing sweet treats to the neighborhood as it parks in front of Wicklow Heights at 1027 W. 19th St.
Vanilla Blue, which specializes in both ice cream and sno-balls, started in August but began a more consistent schedule outside of Wicklow last week. You can find the trailer parked outside from 4-10 p.m. Thursdays, 4 p.m.-2 a.m. Fridays, noon-2 a.m. Saturdays and noon-10 p.m. Sundays.
The menu includes ice cream-stuffed donuts, cookies and brownies as well as sundaes and regular scoops. Its sno-ball options include “fancy” and “less fancy” selections. The former includes flavors like Lean in 7, which is made with grape, Sprite, Nerds candies and Sweet Tart Spritz, and Mangonada, which is made with mango, fresh mango pieces, Chamoy, Tajin rim, lime and Tamarind Candy Spritz. The less fancy options include regular sno-ball flavors, such as tiger’s blood and blue raspberry.
