PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Melissa Torre, of Cookie Confidential, has launched her cookie truck in North Philadelphia.

“It’s located on Temple University, on 12th Street south of Norris, right at the main campus,” she notes.

Torre says they offer the same variety at the truck as they do at their South 5th Street store.

“We do your traditional flavors, but we also do a lot of really weird things.  We do a cheesesteak cookie, we do a raspberry balsamic, a garlic dolce de leche.  We we try and switch it up.”

And they’re adding a new feature this year.

“This year is the first time we’re doing lunch,” Lockard tells KYW Newsradio.  “Our restaurants are doing lunch for $25 and under.”

“It’s in the country — it’s in Edgemont Township (Pennsylvania),” McAndrews says.  “It’s not really the country — it’s about a half-hour outside the city.  But it’s an old farmhouse that has a heck of a lot of doors.  Upon your arrival you are greeted by a huge oak door.  That’s where the name came from.”
