NuNu's Sweet Soul Food in Fort Pierce, Florida, Is Serving Up Peach Cobbler Cheesecake In Ice Cream Cones
It's so hot outside you could fry an egg, as they say. Which means two things for our Southern palates: Extra ice in our sweet tea, and bring on the peach cobbler. Here, here, y'all.
While we're not traveling these days amid the coronavirus crisis, we've discovered a food truck that we're immediately adding to our must-visit list, NuNu's Sweet Soul Food, courtesy of website It's a Southern Thing. You can find the food truck at 708 Delaware Avenue in Fort Pierce, Florida, and the outlet reports that the peach cobbler is "so good diners are willing to drive hours for it." Based on the tantalizing photo, we can't say we're surprised. To further whet your appetite, yes, that's a mix of cheesecake and peach cobbler you see stuffed inside each ice cream cone.
Patricia Hearns is the chef-owner, and also works alongside her husband Robert and the couple's son, Levie Dixon who manages the operation, which includes a catering service and soon-to-open second location. The food truck is named in honor of Hearns' late son and attracts locals and visitors alike to come get a taste of the eclectic menu.
As for what you can expect? A quick perusal of their Facebook page reveals winning dishes like mac and cheese, fried okra, potato salad, sweet corn nuggets, oxtail, and more. For dessert, there's Strawberry Cheesecake Crunch, Red Velvet Cream Cake, Bread Pudding Cheesecake, and more, along with the aforementioned peach cobbler delight.
As one happy customer put it in his review, "There is absolutely no food anywhere as fantastic as this food made with love by some of the sweetest people in Fort Pierce."
