Central California is different from the Bay Area. One of the biggest differences is the the weather. It to very warm borderlining hot all the time, it is a very large agriculture community, and did I mention it is hot there? Visiting some family that live and work in Turlock gave me a quest to find to great food and shopping options. I have never really hung out in the area, so I was excited to see what the city would provide.
Driving on a long stretch with multiple acres of fruit and nut trees, was an approaching fruit stand for the summer’s fruit, watermelon. Of course, a stop had to be made. The watermelon was separated into bins of seedless and with seeds. These watermelons were just $5 and were huge!
Just down another (but much shorter) stretch, I spotted a fruit cup stand. Another stop had to be made, as I am a HUGE fruit devourer. The gentleman cut up fresh fruits which included: watermelon, cucumber, pineapple, mango, cantaloupe, and a white cubes(I think) that I have no idea of the actual name. This was all topped with Tajin and Chamoy with fresh squeezed lime juice to add that something wonderful.
One stop I wanted to make was to Krepe Dog, which is a gourmet hot dog food truck. So many options to choose from. Everything listed seemed like there was no wrong choice. Since everything sounded amazing, I thought I ask for any suggestions. The Caliente Dog was recommended, so I went for it. Also the Plain Dog and Flamin Fries were ordered to enjoy. While waiting for the order, there was corn hole to be played. I mostly stayed in the shade since it was over 85 degrees.
Next to Krepe Dog is Fancy Frostie, which is a shaved ice trailer type food truck. There were tons of flavors to choose from. There were very creative specialty options. My boujee self went for the specialty options by ordering the Peachy Penguin. I thought this was the cutest shaved ice ever. The peachy refreshment was so needed to cool down.
Now fueled with yummy foods, I ended up shopping at one of the many shopping centers in Turlock looking for a great deal. Most shops for plus size and curvy ladies are the usual chains, like Torrid and Lane Bryant.
Turlock was great to this hungry gal . Until the next adventure.
