    Can someone explain to me how a food truck is different from the ice cream trucks? Why is that the ice cream trucks can peddle their wares, but not the food trucks?

    • Arielle Masters

      I would guess it’s because the ice cream is prepackaged and was (in theory) made in controlled circumstances that already pass health regs; whereas food trucks sell freshly made food and thus are more like mobile restaurants/snack shops.
