PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s the Frankenstein of food trucks, and it’s here in Philadelphia all this week.

For five days, the Frankenfood truck is hitting city streets, offering hungry Philadelphians some of the most “inventive, delicious and unexpected snacks known to mankind” – for free.

Bite-sized samples of creations such as Fruity Pebbles Chicken, Pork S’mores and Mango Habanero lollipops will be doled out at places like 30th Street Station and the University of the Sciences at Drexel U. through Friday.

Spike TV says the Frankenfood truck is all part of the push to market a new television series by the same name on the television channel. In the show, competitors combine foods you don’t often see together in the quest for new ideas. While some, like a spaghetti-filled burger, have turned out well, others flat-out fail.

If you’d like to get your hands on some of the freebies, here’s the food truck’s Philadelphia schedule:

Monday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.: University of Sciences, Philadelphia Drexel Campus; 33rd and Arch Street
Tuesday, 10:30 a.m. – 3 p.m.: 38th and Market Street
Wednesday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.: 30th Street Station; 30th Street and Market Street
Thursday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.: Love Park 1599 John F Kennedy Blvd, Philadelphia
Friday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.: Walnut Street & S 34th Street

Frankenfood debuted on June 8th and stars Philly’s famous Tony Luke.
