ISO: Sheila G's Brownie Brittle

I had the walnut and a caramel or toffee flavour. Both were pitched. Perhaps the chocolate chip is saved by the real flavour of chocolate chips? I haven't noticed them lately.

Kitchen Table on King West near Bathurst. Big marketing in Times Square for this product. I tried two flavour versions. Not only did they have a funny after taste, but I wasn't crazy about the product to begin with.

Food Truck Help! Toronto

After doing the research I can say you are bang on.

Caplansky is setting up a carving station inside for made-to-order sandwiches and the truck is supplying all the fried/hot items like fries and reuben spring rolls. Servers will bring the food indoors on trays. It is actually a pretty great set up that we've planned. The truck is there so we can have freshly made hot food, but our guests won't have to go out in the cold.

Thanks everyone who shared their input. I have to say how surprised I was to find that many trucks are not interested to work "outside the box" Food Dudes had great catering choices but their food truck was not available as an option for us.

We're using Caplansky's. Not only have they been extremely amenable but they are also highly professional with quick, detailed responses. The event is next week and we are hoping for a great time!

I will be sure to report back!

soup advice

White pepper?
Raw minced garlic?
Minced Banana Pepper??

If you don't mind colour alteration - cayenne, or any pepper.

We've ordered Ontario Pork Ribs, Chicken filets, Beef Back Ribs, Prime Roasts, Ground Chicken over the years and have always been very, very happy. My only caveat is to watch for origin as they try to hide behind terms like proudly Canadian to fool you. WagJag expressed in writing to us that they are not responsible for any claims made by the producer. Nor are they responsible to denote country of origin. Wagjag sucks that way!

Thanks ylsf. It doesn't seem like there is as much love for food trucks on here like I had anticipated. Are there really no great stand out trucks?

I will check out Food Dudes for sure but I thought of them as more of a catering company than a grassroots ft.

Yes that is a good point - thanks. I will create a set menu with them for sure! And we will serve trays of food.

Our company wants to arrange for 2 trucks from 5pm-8pm one day, early December. It's our Christmas party of 100-150 people.

What two trucks would you want to have onsite if you could choose any two?

Thanks in advance!
