According to the Chunky Dunk: A Milk and Cookies Truck Facebook page, “a cookie a day keeps the doctor away, especially if you add ice cream to it.” Since owner and head baker, Sara Slimp, has a degree in social work, it’s probably OK to assume this is sound medical advice.

[dropcap]Slimp[/dropcap] was in the final semester of her graduate program when the idea of being a food truck pioneer came to her. At the encouragement of friends, she created a gofundme.com campaign. When she raised $1,500 the first day and more than $2,200 in a week, she knew she was onto something. A few months and a whole lot of cookies later, she’s looking for a storefront to both bake and sell her confections in one location.
Chunky Dunk offers four standard cookie flavors — chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin and peanut butter — and creates specials like lemon-lavender-rosemary shortbread and “monster” cookies, which contain “everything good in the world,” Slimp said. To maximize the fantastic, add Loblolly Creamery ice cream to create a sumptuous sandwich. The cookies are each $1.50, or pick up six to 12 for $1 each; ice cream sandwiches for $5.75; and toppings for an additional cost. Be sure to check out the signature sandwiches, like The Chuck Norris, a tempting combination of chocolate chip cookies, Aztec chocolate ice cream and espresso.
