As a kid, frantic ice cream truck chasing secured you a fistful of cold, sweet heaven; as an adult, you recognize that heaven to be a purgatory of petrified Choco Tacos and the possibility of hearing "I'm Chris Hansen". For an ice cream truck that's grow'd up just like you, hit up Sweetflow Mobile.
From the G-town grads behind Sweetgreen, Sweetflow ditches Fudgsicles and Klondikes to flood the District's streets with delicious, almost-healthy frozen yogurt in a truck powered by a patented, eco-friendly direct drive system to cut down on carbon emission, an issue you almost care about. Dismissive of girlish, TCBY-style flavors, Flow keeps the foundation simple with OG-plain frozen yogurt, then goes Nature's Bounty with the toppings, including "Crunches" (shredded coconut, maple granola, candied walnuts, toasted almonds, chocolate chip cookies), Fruits (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, mangoes), and Others, from fresh mint to agave syrup, the spring break party animal of the sweetener world. In place of blotchy white aprons, Flow vendors will rock Durkl custom uniforms, and the speakers will blare a house remix of the classic 'cream truck jingle, proving the dark hand of electronic music can reach into even your most cherished childhood memories, and make them dance.
Tomorrow from 1-4pm, they'll be parked behind the Dupont Sweetgreen, giving away free cones to anyone who mentions Thrillist. They're also throwing an official launch party on Saturday, with Durkl giveaways, a DJ, and breakdancers -- so exciting that, even if busted with wine coolers, McDonald's cheeseburgers, and condoms, you won't be able to just take a seat, take a seat right over there.
