Lick Lick, a street cart for dogs, launches
Two months ago, TOC brought you the unlikely news that the latest food truck to peddle cookies and frozen treats was intended not for humans but for dogs. Like the people-food trucks, dog-oriented street-food now appears to be, however frighteningly, burgeoning into its own category. Introducing: Lick Lick, Chicago's first food cart for dogs.
Lick Lick, which debuted at Food Truck Tuesdays, is the project of "designer turned entrepreneur" Andreana Droz. "Think of us as the Tiffany's of treats," Droz remarks in the press release. Her cart peddles "artisanal" doggie ice cream in flavors like tuna-cranberry, carrot-carob, peanut-butter-bacon, green-apple-cheddar and strawberry-almond-mint, as well as treats like "Maru Macaroons," which the press release describes as "wheat-free little jeweled clusters of bacon, coconut and cranberries."
Catch Lick Lick (@arrfscarf) at future Food Truck Tuesdays or at Cody's Public House (1658 W Barry Ave, 773-528-4050) on Saturday July 23 from 6–9pm for a fund-raiser for the Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control. ARRFSCARF treats are available at Sam and Willy's.
