Birthed when one of its architecture-student founders realized that people suddenly cared a lot more about her final project when they discovered it was completely made out of pomegranate, and that they could eat the crap out of it, Coolhaus is an industrial metal-heavy, hot pink logo-outfitted ice cream truck debuting tonight at Yo Miami's Mr. Rogers-themed bash at Found. It'll sling artfully constructed ice cream sammies inspired by famous architects like Dutch namesake Rem Koolhaas and Louis Kahn, who once famously said “even a brick wants to be something”, although he probably didn’t mean a Ben Folds Five song. Poor brick.
Every single piece of sweet goodness is made in-truck, including almost a dozen all-natural cookies (known as the "walls") like snickerdoodle, red velvet, peanut butter, double chocolate fudge, lemon rosemary, and maple waffle white chocolate (which you’ll try to order three of, but only get them like 32% of the time). Those’re then thrown around ice cream flavors like brown butter-candied bacon, carrot cake batter, Guinness chip, orange chocolate Cointreau, and dirty mint before being wrapped in edible paper and smashed into creamy creations like the Frank Berry, which homages one of the most famous architects of all time,
Frankenberry Frank Gehry.
Later this year, they'll be dropping the Gin & Arquitec-Tonic-a (G&T flavors with a twist of lime and elderflower, paying respect to local architectural giants Arquitectonica), plus the Cuban Cigar -- which, along with a sweet chocolate, will incorporate a smoky tobacco flavor, which stands in stark contrast to what’s coming out of the Bong for the Dumped.
