Vegan Truck The Cinnamon Snail Wins Vendy Award

The eighth annual Vendy Awards honored the all-vegan food truck on Governors Island in New York City last Saturday.

New York City and New Jersey-based all-vegan food truck The Cinnamon Snail won a Vendy award for People’s Choice on September 15 over numerous non-vegan food trucks in the running. Owner Adam Sobel started The Cinnamon Snail three years ago with the intentions of bringing flavorful quick meat- and dairy-free grub to the East Coast. In celebration of The Cinnamon Snail’s win, the truck distributed free white chocolate macadamia twinkies to New York City locals. Some of Cinnamon Snail’s seasonal items include Blue Corn Pancakes, Ancho Chili Seitan Burger with beer simmered veggies, and organic vegan doughnuts. The Cinnamon Snails prides itself in appealing to both vegans and non-vegans alike; roughly 85 to 90 percent of its patrons are not even vegetarian.
