People are going nuts for this 'rolled' ice cream

Ice cream rolls are a popular dessert on the streets of Thailand, and now they're a craze in New York City, where the street treat just got an upscale twist. We visited Chinatown's 10Below (10 Mott Street, New York, New York) to see how the rolls are made — and if they live up to the hype. Spoiler alert: They do. How do you "roll" ice cream? Workers pour creamy custard and toppings on an icy cold plate, mix them all together. The concoction is then flattened, rolled, squished into a cup, and topped with sweets and fresh fruit. We especially dug the Oreo-filled "Cookie Monster." Even at $7 a pop, it's no wonder why the line is out the door. Story by Julie Zeveloff and Aly Weisman, editing by Stephen Parkhurst
