Cookie Confidential To Launch New Food Truck At Temple

Melissa Torre, the wildly inventive chief cookie concocter (remember those Hot Wing cookies!) and owner of Cookie Confidential, will be rolling out a new dessert truck located on Temple’s Campus (on 12th street just south of Norris) by Mid-March.

Says the busy baker, “I am doing Brewer’s Plate this year which is March 11, so I want to make it through that madness first.”

Planning to open five days a week, Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., Torre will offer a rotating menu of cookies including Raspberry Balsamic, Maple Bacon Oatmeal and Cheesesteak; undercover cupcakes in jars and pops; as well as One Village coffee and other tasty beverages.

The operation will undergo a Cookie Confidential makeover (right now it’s the Sugar Rush truck), and hopefully by the summer, Torre will be approved to install a utility pole to allow for cool treats like Franklin Fountain’s ice cream and Capogiro’s gelato. Sounds like ice cream cookie sandwiches to us!

“At first I won’t be doing deliveries, but hopefully [I'll] be able to add it down the road along with online ordering maybe by Fall,” Torre concludes.

A sweet addition for Temple’s Campus!
