Perry, the voice behind New York Street Food, brings you his latest review on New York City food trucks.
Lately on Fridays, we’ve been getting you into the weekend mindset by highlighting the best of the city’s food truck desserts. Any discussion of the best NY food truck desserts has to include Sweetery NYC, who do a lot of things well, but especially baked goods.
We brought home an assortment of cookies to enjoy with our family – and enjoy them we did. Our goodie bag included a snickerdoodle ($2), flourless chocolate walnut ($2.25) and a macarella ($3).

The flourless chocolate walnut cookie was exactly as advertised, nutty and chocolatey. The lack of flour made the cookie denser and less “cakey”, although I wouldn’t call it heavy.
Snickerdoodle is always high on our list, being big fans of cinnamon. The cookie was soft and tasty, with a nice dose of cinnamon sugar dusting the top. Yum!
The macarella is one of the most popular items on Sweetery’s menu. It’s the most expensive cookie at $3, but is actually two coconut macaroon cookies sandwiched around nutella cream. The toasted coconut flavor is really nice, and it’s an inspired choice to pair this with nutella, a chocolate hazelnut cream.
The Sweetery truck spends most mornings on Hudson St just below Houston St, in front of the Saatchi & Saatchi building. They were the first truck to park in this area a couple a years ago, which is now a hotbed for food trucks.
In addition to cookies, they have delicious ice cream sandwiches on fresh baked cookies, cupcakes, brownies, whoopie pies and more. You can see their full menu here.
