Adam Wolfe wrote from New York Comic Con:
If you were walking around the con floor at all this weekend, you probably noticed the curious sight of a food truck parked in the back corner of the convention hall. You probably also noticed that the menu was a little bit different than your standard "chicken tenders and fries" con meal. That's because this was no ordinary food truck — it was the Fandom Fantasy Food Truck.
Just as the name implies, the Fandom Fantasy Food Truck, or F.F.F.T. (because, frankly, it's a lot easier to say than write) has been appearing at New York Comic Con for four years now. This year was their first appearance at San Diego, as well. Each and every year, the F.F.F.T provides con goers with creative, but most importantly, delicious representations of some of their favorite shows, movies, and comics. Coming off last year's hugely successful "Zootopia's Pawcicles", the F.F.F.T. had a lot of hype to live up to.
My first course was a "Lucille Pretzel Bat" based on Negan's weapon of choice from The Walking Dead. It was a long, crunchy, salted pretzel absolutely covered in thick chewy caramel, and pretzel bit shards. The barbed wire was designed with a white chocolate drizzle and even came with a little candy Glenn's eyeball stuck to it.
Next up we had the "Porg in a Blanket". Now, I was expecting some sort of hot dog, but it is important to note that the F.F.F.T. does not provide hot food items. I don't think I have to note that the idea of a cold hot dog doesn't sound appealing to anyone. What was appealing, however, was this succulent delicious chocolate cake pop stuck in a marshmallow, wrapped in a crepe. Honestly, this thing was almost too cute to eat.
After that, things got a bit stranger as I ate the "Upside Down Waffle" from Stranger Things. It was a bite-sized cinnamon-flavored waffle-covered chocolate, with charcoal cotton candy put on top. If you're wondering what charcoal cotton candy tastes like, I have good news: it tastes nothing like charcoal, and it looks really cool.
Last but not least, we have the "Pickle Rick Soda". Now, I was super conflicted here. I was most excited to try their Rick and Morty food, but I was also terrified at the notion of drinking a pickle-flavored soda. I thought to myself, "Surely this is just a green-looking soda that's kiwi-flavored or something, right?" Wrong. They combined pickle juice, cornichons (little French pickles), soda water, and a touch of dill. Honestly, it wasn't bad. I wouldn't mind mixing some whiskey in it, or maybe using it as a chaser.
If I had to pick a winner this year, I'd say the Lucille Pretzel Bat was the best, no doubt about it. The best part about all this? It's free! All you have to do is show up (basically as the doors open) and you get a little ticket that tells you when to return for your treat of the day. Make sure you head down next year to see what they have cooking up!
