My wife and I had heard about the Cow Tipping Creamery on Unique Sweets (Episode CCUQS501H). This isn’t a brick and mortar store, but one of the many food trucks that can be found around the Austin area. This one is located in a small lot with a few other trucks near the campus of the University of Texas in downtown Austin (2512 Rio Grande St., Austin, Texas 78705). Parking was a challenge as that area of town is full of apartments primarily occupied by students and most of the available street parking was taken up by those living in the area.
This ice cream vendor offers soft serve with a wide array of interesting toppings on their menu. We chose to share an “At the Ritz” 12 ounce ‘stacker’. The ‘stacker’ is their version of a sundae, but they stack the ingredients to give great flavor throughout the desert. The “At the Ritz” is soft serve vanilla with brown sugar hot fudge peanut butter sauce. To top it off there were crumbled Ritz crackers sprinkled over the top. This made for a unique creamy, salty, chocolate indulgence.
We won’t be visiting the Cow Tipping Creamery too often, but we can certainly recommend it as a great desert.
