The food truck trend has been exploding around Yellowstone County over the past few years, and in 2022 there are several new eateries about to take their treats to the street.

According to the @DoughnutBarnMT Instagram page, a new truck serving "homemade mini-doughnuts made with local ingredients" will hit the streets of Billings this Spring.

The Doughnut Barn will begin excepting orders for their Montana Made delectables on May 1 and will have a menu of mini-doughnuts in 12 featured flavors including Reese’s Pieces, Blueberry Pancake, Cinnamon Sugar, Huckleberry Jam, and Oreo Crumble.

A post on The Doughnut Barn Instagram page says their treats are made with "local free-range eggs, Western Sugar sugar, and Wheat Montana flour."

A new food trailer featuring "icebox cakes" will hit the streets of Billings beginning this Saturday. Nichole Hamnes, owner of Luscious Layers says her no-bake desserts begin with "a cookie crust, followed by a cheesecake filling, pudding, whipped cream, and various other sundae toppings."

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
