IT'S ALMOST HERE! I'm so excited because I love food and it'll be my first time at a food truck rally! I always wanted to try it out and I guess this is my chance. This Saturday the 24th is the date to remember and it's from 11am-3pm but of course I'm going to try to come out way earlier than that.
Here's the listed trucks and vendor from CL

Sandwiches are the king here, with a few extras like hollowed-out
rolls stuffed with juicy fixin's and smashballs (think alternative
meatballs, kinda). The more unusual the better here, from egg, potatoes,
bacon and cheese on a gooey glazed donut to Italian sausage sushi.
3 Ballers Travelling Bistro

Ballers serves a few simple savory dishes, but sweets are their
specialty, including pretty cupcakes; amazing cookies that combine
flavors you've likely never experienced in disc form; and plenty of
personal-sized cakes, pies and more.
If you are a vegan or vegetarian, look for the bright green Fire
Monkey truck with waves of orange flame along the bottom. Chef Carlos
Martinez shops the markets on an almost daily basis, meaning the menu
changes with both the seasons and what's available. You might find a
killer take on banh mi, veggie burritos, or fish sliders, all heavy on
the flavor. (Read more about Fire Monkey on p. 96.)
Artisan popsicles? Wrap your mind around flavors like strawberry
basil, cucumber mint, chocolate sea salt and wasabi lime, all made with
natural ingredients and served up on a stick for easy portable
This classic Ybor Cuban joint has terrific devil crab, meat pies and a
Cuban sandwich coated with a signature blend of garlic and herbs that
gives it a piquant power that you don't find at most press-and-serve
This rolling smoothie stand sells a few sandwiches, but its real
contribution to the rally comes in the form of frigid blended beverages
loaded with healthy fruit and snowcones doused in neon-colored sugary
Fat Tortillas can be a tough sell when embarking on an all-day food
truck eatathon, because their Tex-Mex burritos are so damn massive they
could put you down for the count. Get a group and order the buenos dias,
a burrito stuffed with grilled steak, eggs and whatever else you want.
The Cuppin Cake
Though Cuppin Cake's truck isn't ready yet, this soon-to-be portable
cupcakery based out of Brandon will have a tent chock full of its
namesake, with flavors like choco-nutter, creamsicle, cherry bomb and
This small truck packs big flavor into bowls made from mashed and
deep-fried plantains, stuffed with fried-chicken or pork nuggets, or
grilled steak and a slew of veggies, herbs and sauces.
This brand-new truck — just started serving at the beginning of this
month — concocts interesting takes on sandwich classics. Head here to be
at the forefront of Tampa's food truck scene.
Buddy Brew Coffee
Buddy Brew sources its own beans, roasts on a daily basis, and will
brew it fresh on site. Drink early and often to keep up your energy
levels in the face of caloric overload.

I made a list and noted which one I would really like to try to the least (of course I want to try them all). The most interesting one that I really want to try would be Whatever Pops with their natural popsicles and variation of flavors (I want to try the strawberry basil, cucumber mind and wasabi lime). Coconut Bo's sounds good too especially their smoothies! Also The Cuppin Cake, they may not have their truck ready but I'm sure they will have their little area serving up their cupcakes. There's a few sandwiches trucks and even a Tex -Mex one so this will be interesting! Supposedly there will be some "guest trucks" so we'll see who else will be there :D!
