Sometimes, I really wish I lived in NYC.
The shopping. The shows. The being able to get anything you want, whenever you want it. And of course – the FOOD. God knows, I love food.
Now through June 4th, a new food truck is rolling out across the New York City Metro area offering a free menu of Friendship protein-packed, on-the-go cottage cheese creations. Friendship’s truck will announce locations via Facebook and Twitter that hungry fans can track. Don’t you love the idea of food trucks? I do. I really do. I get giddy at the idea of having to check Twitter to see where my favorite truck is going to be and when. That so doesn’t happen here.
It gets better though with this particular truck.
On Tuesday, May 7th, (like, tomorrow!!) celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito will serve up his special Friendship Apple Pie Smoothie created with 1% Low Fat Friendship Cottage Cheese for the food truck launch. DiSpirito is passionate about following healthy lifestyle choices and for the past seven years has been on a mission to prove that healthy and delicious are not mutually exclusive. Both Friendship and DiSpirito are dedicated to showcasing the versatility and great taste of this all natural, low calorie cottage cheese and re-introduce people to all of its culinary wonderments.
Throughout the month at sampling venues, Friendship’s food truck will offer free 5-ounce Friendship Fit to Go™ 1% Low Fat, 1% Low Fat Pineapple and 4% Regular Cottage Cheese. Enthusiasts can also opt for the featured mix-ins that add an extra twist: Taking a more innovative approach to traditional toppings, Friendship is offering mix-in options including Instant Wasabi and Granola Glee. Chef Rocco DiSpirito brings two new recipes to the brand, including Apple Pie Smoothie and Smooth and Creamy Cottage Cheese with Crunchy Walnut & Blueberries. These four creations together highlight how easy it is to turn a wholesome snack into a delightful treat. It’s a new way of thinking about cottage cheese.
Friendship’s truck will feature its iconic white dove on a blue background, with the Fit To Go® logo, so it will be easy to spot coming to a corner near you. In addition to canvassing the streets of Manhattan, look for it throughout the tri-state area where it will participate in events like the New York Botanical Garden’s Mother’s Day Party as well as charity walks, golf tournaments and races such as the Long Island Marathon and New Jersey Liberty Run Marathon, the ShopRite LPGA Classic in New Jersey, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation runs in the metro region.
