The Cookie Truck(s)

Our Cookiemobile is a lovingly restored and hand-painted 1987 Grumman stepvan. In her former life, she delivered the Washington Post in Delaware! Captain Cookie and his talented friends spent over a year transforming her into a mobile bakery with running water, dipping freezer, and a professional bakery oven. That’s right – we bake right on the truck, so our cookies are always freshly baked – in fact, many times they’re still hot from the oven!

Cookie 2 worked for many years in Flint, Michigan hauling plumbing supplies. Before getting her cookie truck makeover, she sat for several years in a driveway. Look out for a beautiful yellow paint job and the same bakery oven, ice cream, and milk as Cookie 1!

The Captain’s Cookies

Captain Cookie made his first cookie at age four and has been obsessed ever since. His unique recipe for chocolate chip cookies is the result of twenty-plus years of tinkering and testing. While on the quest for perfection, he also developed a handful of knockout recipes for the cookies featured on the truck.

To say these cookies are handmade is an understatement. When Captain Cookie makes a Pumpkin Muffaroon, he personally roasts the pumpkins and sweet potatoes to make the most flavorful mash. Our vegan chocolate chip cookies are extraordinary because Captain Cookie makes his own vegan butter from scratch. There’s a secret ingredient that makes the peanut butter cookies so soft, and the snickerdoodles…well, we can’t give everything away! Rest assured that decades of cookie-making and only the finest ingredients have gone into making YOUR cookie the best you’ve ever had.

    The perfect dessert surprise!

    We had Captain Cookie and the Milkman truck as dessert at our wedding and couldn't be happier! Not only was it a great price, they were a hit among our guests and even invited us to take photos in the truck. Couldn't have asked for a better vendor!

    Who doesn't love ice cream?!

    We're not big cake people and knew we wanted to do something different on our wedding day. We've had CC before and knew the ice cream sandwiches were delicious, so it was a no brainer! The staff (specifically Alexandra) were so helpful in their communications and very responsive. Then our wedding day came and the staff set up at our dessert table and our guests loved it! We didn't do the truck because our reception was in a hotel ballroom. My only regret is I didn't finish my ice cream sandwich - it was so tasty. The only thing I wish I had done was schedule them to stay through the duration of our reception (I asked them to finish at 10pm, reception ended at 10:30pm) because there were some guests who didn't know they were leaving and missed the window to get dessert (despite our DJ making several announcements). But, I definitely recommend!

    Perfect for a Summer Wedding

    My husband came up with the idea to have an ice cream truck arrive at our August wedding as an end of evening surprise for the guests. I found Captain Cookie through a work event and after one taste it was no question they were the vendor we had to have. Communications with Alexandra at CC were easy and she was very responsive to questions by email. They showed up on time, got a great parking spot and served our guests their amazing treats. It goes without saying that these ice cream sandwiches and cookies are so so good. Guests continue to tell us it was one of their favorite moments of the night!
