Good concept and nice folks -- but pricey!

We stopped at the Like No Udder truck while visiting the Providence Rock and Roll Yard Sale at Grant's Block. I ordered a pistachio shake ($5) and my husband ordered a rootbeer float with vanilla ice cream ($5.75). The shake was made with both vegan vanilla ice cream and coconut milk, which made for a thick shake. The pistachio flavor was very subdued however, and it basically tasted like a vanilla and mild coconut shake. It was nice -- but quite not worth $5 for a small serving. My husband's root beer float was okay -- but, again, $5.75 is steep for a small serving of soda with a scoop of ice cream in it. Also, we did find a small black hair inside his vanilla ice cream. (The woman working the truck had long grayish hair, so it was definitely not from her head.) We just plucked out the hair and continued drinking the float because those kinds of things don't really bother us. Also, we didn't want to embarrass the Like-No-Udder worker since there were many people standing around the truck. A vegan ice cream truck is a great concept -- but, for the price, we'd prefer to get our vegan ice cream from Kafe Lila in Pawtucket. I wish Like No Udder luck with their venture!
very pricey, smaller portions, found a hair in the ice cream
