Free ice cream! I’m serious too, not just saying that to get your attention. The Cooking Channel ice cream truck has been touring the country all summer just giving ice cream away in places like Boston, Atlantic City and Atlanta. The truck is gearing up for the second leg of its whirlwind tour, and there’s still plenty of time to catch it when it comes to your city, see dates and locations below. And once you’ve had your (free!) ice cream, stick around and chat — we want to know about your passion for food — ice cream and beyond.
