Mobile Truck, New York, NY
Overrated and overbearing
By sarahf on 7/12/2012
The Williamsburg truck serves forgettable, frost-bitten ice cream. Workers can be found harassing other ice cream trucks on Bedford Avenue for creeping in on their turf. I tried stopping at one of these other trucks this summer and found that I wasn't actually in line, I was just standing behind two irate Van Leeuwin workers giving a very nice Asian man a severe tongue-lashing for being parked a block away from their truck. "Don't you think you're too close? Answer me! I'm serious!" I understand, they should be very afraid of any competition.
Your freezers are too damn cold! Turn them up!

I have visited the Van Leeuwen ice cream trucks five times in the past year trying their different flavors and while I am sure they could potentially be good, every time I have gotten gotten ice cream it has been extremely icy. You guys need to turn your freezers up in temperature a bit! I know the word "ice" is in the name, but ice cream is not supposed to be icy and crystallized. It ruins the texture as well as the flavor. That being said, the people working the trucks are always very nice and the truck is a truck so you know it gets a 5 for being just that, a truck. If I bother to try you again I hope you guys have it right and show me how good you can be.
