Street Treats: B&E Seattle Food Truck Spotlight Series

Continuing our Banquet Event (B&E) Spotlight Vendor series featuring our favorite local Seattle Food trucks, today we're highlighting Diane Skwiercz of Street Treats.  

Street Treats makes everything from scratch and sources as many local products as possible.  Including local vendors such as Caffe Vita, Smith Brothers Dairy, CB’s Nuts, Cedar Grove Packaging, Jones Soda and Youngquist Berries. Some of their yummy offerings include build your own s’mores, build your own ice cream cookie sandwiches, ice cream sundaes, root beer floats & dessert platters.
We caught up with Diane recently and got the scoop on what's happening in the truck, mini cart, and catering Street Treats world and here's what she had to share: 

"Street Treats started in June of 2010 with a love of sweets!  On launch day, we thought of the idea of customizable ice cream sandwiches; since we carried both cookies and ice cream.  Each guest can mix two entirely different cookies and the ice cream.  It's super fun and interactive and Delicious! Seattle secret that may not be known, is that most of the local ice cream shops use an industrialized base, think store shelved brownie mix. We actually make our ice cream from scratch standing over the stove, using cream, milk, egg yolks and sugar.  It is super premium ice cream! 
We still eat sweets everyday!”
