To help promote Spike TV’s new series “Frankenfood,” a show that combines unlikely foods in an attempt to create new ideas, a free food truck is hitting the streets of Los Angeles.

Spike’s food truck has teamed up with Roaming Hunger to dish out free bite-size samples of some of the most inventive and unexpected snacks on the show, including Fruity Pebbles chicken, mango habanero lollipops, pork s’mores, espresso-crusted chicken tacos and blackened shrimp pretzels.

The “Frankenfood” food truck coincides with the premiere of Spike TV’s new competition series, which features local amateur food innovators competing head-to-head in order to get their unexpected concoctions onto the menu of a popular local restaurant and win $10,000. Chef Josh Capon and Tony Luke Jr. will serve as judges, along with a rotating panel of culinary experts.

“Frankenfood” premieres on Spike TV on Sunday, June 22, at 10 p.m.

See below for L.A. food truck  locations:

Tuesday 4-6 p.m.: Sportie LA 7753 Melrose Avenue

Wednesday 11 a.m.-3 p.m.: Silverback Records; 1013 North Orange Drive

    this is not frankenfood. seems like normal healthy food to me, albeit in odd combinations. the term frankenfood means chemical laided processed crap that can hardly be called food when it’s so full of nonsensical “ingredients” and more of a product of chemistry rather than something you’d expect to eat.
