It has been a long road, but Say Hello Sweets is finally up and driving. Owned and operated by Naomi Arnaut, the pastel-coloured food truck (almost good enough to lick) offers small-batch ice cream and coffee.

Those who hunt down the roaming food truck can expect to find luxury (shockingly creamy) non-dairy ice cream, handcrafted with whole food ingredients.

Available by the scoop (in a cup or a cone), as part of a float, or sandwiched between freshly baked cookies from The Small Flower Cafe and Bakery, Say Hello’s ice cream comes in an array of enticing flavours.

Flavours include Vanilla Rhapsody, Chocolate Nirvana, Jam Session, Honey Black Sesame, Lemon Squeezy, The Fog (vanilla-infused Earl Grey tea and local honey), Stay Mallow (a delectable toasted marshmallow creation), and more.

Gluten-free cones and affogatos are also up for grabs and take-home pints will soon be available from Small Flower in Gastown and Fluffy Kittens in Chinatown, once it opens later this summer.

Arnaut also hopes to introduce cream popsicles and ice cream sandwiches for dogs.

Non-ice cream offerings include freshly brewed coffee, made using beans from Vancouver-based Continental Coffee.

Although Arnaut holds a roaming vending permit she has booked several festivals for the summer, therefore the best way to find the Say Hello truck is via Twitter and Instagram.
