Food: Handmade ice cream in unconventional flavors. Earl Grey Srichacha sounds like a bad idea. We assure you, it is not. There are usually six flavors, three Philadelphia-style (with 16 percent butterfat cream from Trickling Springs Creamery in Chambersburg) and three nondairy.

Who’s behind it? Founded one year ago by Pete Angevine, Martin Brown and Jeffrey Ziga.

What’s in that name? Ziga says: “It sprang out of the ether. It’s emotional. I’m a little baby, you’re a little baby. It’s all good.”

Look for: A red and white cart with a tricycle attachment; it’s not quite a truck, but still on wheels.

Spend: $4 a scoop, $6 for two, $7 for three.

Find it: Love Park (15th and JFK), Fridays in May; Morgans Pier (221 N. Columbus Blvd.), 5-11 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, noon-11 p.m. Sunday; Garden Variety (900 N. 2nd St.), Thursday-Sunday, time TBD, and Union Transfer (1026 Spring Garden St., at concerts). Buy by the pint for $9 at Green Aisle Grocery (1618 E. Passyunk Ave.). Call in advance if you’ve got a hard-core hankering; those pints are hot commodities. Little Baby’s is also a regular at outdoor fests like last weekend’s Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby.

Dynamic duos: Little Baby’s has partnered with two Philly-ified companies for new flavors: Goldberg’s Peanut Chews and Spodee, with Art in the Age’s new liquor made of fortified wine and moonshine. Baby’s also is joining with Pizza Brain pizzeria and pizza memorabilia museum for a permanent location, funded through Kickstarter, at 2311 Frankford Ave. It’s scheduled to open next month.

Every other Thursday, Daily News wannabe food-truckers explore local mobile-food operations. This week’s trucker is Molly Eichel.
