HotChocolate Fudge-sicles on The 606

With the Dog Days of Summer upon us, there’s never been a better time to hit The 606 and cool off with Fudge-sicles by none other than Mindy Segal. The owner of nearby HotChocolate, which is just off the elevated trail on Damen in Bucktown, just rolled out a new frozen treats cart on the 606 on weekends and evenings. Not just any fudge-sicles, these are her frozen hot chocolate fudge-sicles, doled out from a custom built tricycle in seasonally inspired flavors like strawberries and cream and peanut butter and jam. They cost $4 each, and you can find out where the “IceTrike” will be by following HotChocolate on Twitter at @MindySegal.
