The Taste Experience

At first glance, what appears to be a bucket of fried chicken drumsticks is, in fact, an artful creation of ice cream. Each piece combines waffle-flavored ice cream with a chocolate-covered cookie that serves as the ‘bone,’ all encased in a crispy layer of white chocolate and crushed corn flakes. This dessert offers a symphony of crispy, crunchy, creamy, salty, and sweet notes, making it as fun to eat as it is delicious.

The Creative Mind Behind the Treat


Chef Cynthia Wong, known for her humor and innovative approach to pastry, has ventured into the ice cream world with Life Raft Treats, South Carolina’s only chef-driven artisan ice cream truck. Utilizing high-quality, locally-sourced dairy, eggs, and ingredients, Wong is reimagining childhood favorites into something extraordinary. This product, it should be noted, contains no actual chicken, underscoring its playful deception.

A Culinary Achievement

Life Raft Treats is not just a local treasure but has gained national attention, appearing in renowned publications and shows. Through its partnership with Charleston’s Coastal Conservation League, Life Raft Treats also supports local farmers, incorporating their produce into its innovative recipes.
