Hot Spots to Cool Off: Captain Cookie and the Milkman

What better way to deal with the 95-degree heat today than to head down to the food trucks and grab some local ice cream and fresh cookies?

Captain Cookie and the Milkman is one of the best food trucks these bloggers have ever come in contact with. On any given day, you can walk up, have your choice of six or seven different ice cream flavors or six or seven different kinds of cookies. The flavors rotate on a daily basis, but no matter what day it is, you’re bound to find a flavor you love.

And here’s the best thing about Captain Cookie: Not only is the ice cream local, creamy, cold and AMAZING; its also cheap. A bowl of ice cream is only $1.50, a far cry from the prices at fro-yo and ice cream shops around the city.

The cookies (freshly baked each day) are only $1.25 each; and though a hot, gooey cookie may not be what the body calls for on a steamy D.C. lunch-hour, ice cream sandwiched by those scrumptious delectables is exactly what you need. Have your choice of any flavor of ice cream with any cookie (we sampled peanut butter cookies with chocolate ice cream) and enjoy it quickly before it melts! You’ll want every last drop of melted ice cream and every last crumb of your cookie.
