Photos of the Day: Designer Ice Cream Sandwich Truck Feeds Capitola

Coolhaus ice cream truck was in the Whole Foods Capitola parking lot on Wednesday

The Coolhaus ice cream truck was stationed at Wednesday afternoon, doling out all-original, truck-made ice cream sandwiches to shoppers.

Coolhaus was started by Freya Estreller and Natasha Case, who started making ice cream in Estreller's mother's kitchen in 2008. Four years later, they have four trucks in LA, one truck and one cart in New York, two trucks in Austin, two in Miami and a store in Culver City. So if you missed their stop in Capitola on Wednesday, you'll have to travel to check it out.

Estreller and Case named all their ice creams and cookies after famous architects and architectural movements, according to their website. Here's how the name came together:

1. Bauhaus is an architectural movement from the 1920s and 1930s.
2. Rem Koolhaas is a famous Dutch architect.
3. "Cool House" is a play on both of those, and an ice cream sandwich is kind of like a house (with a cookie floor and ceiling).

Yes, my 11 yr. old grandson Phoenix and I needed some things at the store, so conveniently timed it to be there when the truck came.The samples were generous in size. He tried the ginger cookie with mango ice cream and I had choc. chip with bacon ice cream. A guy in line said it was delicious and it was, but it didn't taste like bacon, thank goodness.
