That lipstick on your collar? First of all, dude, well played. Second, that's a smear. A schmear is what's going down every morning inside the 14 styles of split-toasted, South Philly-boiled bagels the Schmear It truck's spreading with fresh cream cheese mix-ins blended to order Cold Stone-style, with combos like chopped salmon, wasabi & soy, maple-syruped walnuts & banana, and Sriracha-doused strawberries, providing another round of sweet hotness to stain your shirt.

Even though the truck's loaded with bagels, it's always on a roll (!). You can follow @schmearit on Twitter to see where they're pulling up next, from Love Park to City Hall and 33rd & Arch.

And once you've pulled up, you can choose from more than a dozen schmearables, from poppy-sesame-and-salt-rolled everything bagels, to still totally somethings like chocolate chip, sun-dried tomato, and French toast.

Want to see the bagel butchers go Cold Stone on your cream cheese? Opt for any or all of their seasonal fruit, fish, and veggie mix-ins. Not craving cream cheese? They'll stir them into PB&J, Nutella, roasted onion hummus, and even tuna salad.
