NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tongues are wagging in New York City for something called the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck.

Gay ice cream man Doug Quint owns the BGICT, a popular soft serve shop on wheels that posts up around NYC.

He tweets his daily location on Twitter and avid groupies stalk him.

Although he has customers of every kind, Quint says his biggest fans are foodies.

They run to the truck like little kids just to get a lick of his latest quirky concoctions, especially the “Salty Pimp,” an ice cream cone dipped in a hard chocolate shell made with dulce de leche and sea salt.

He also offers gourmet toppings like wasabi pea dust, olive oil, curry powder, and pickles to sweeten the deal.

With summer around the corner, Quint plans to spruce up his old rickety truck and get extra help aboard for the busy season.

He refuses to blare crappy, generic ice cream truck music as he cruises, though.
