As the food truck craze expands throughout Fairfield County, new menus are continually being presented offering the customer even more choices. Over the last ten years we have witnessed the options expand to include Mexican, burgers, pizza, lobster rolls, crepes, grilled cheese and porchetta sandwiches. Another inventive variation is offered by Spud Stud, the brightly colored truck adorned with a smirking potato with its arm around the shoulder of a bikini-clad vixen.
The Spud Stud truck is one of three that are parked outside my office building each Wednesday, and it draws its loyal weekly devotees, plus many new and curious customers. Presented by husband and wife team Craig and Krista McCarthy, Spud Stud offers a variety of options, but their marquee product is the “Loaded Baked Potato” and enormous, split baked potato stuffed with one on fourteen toppings ranging from traditional toppings to eclectic combinations.
