The segments star Cookie Monster and Gonger (from The Furchester Hotel), working in their own food truck and fielding orders from live children via video message. To complete their recipe, the monsters drive the truck to a specific location and learn about where certain foods originally come from.

“When David Rudman was around on the Furchester and Cookie Monster and Gonger got together, everybody found it hilarious. And as we got to the end of the run of The Furchester, I decided we needed to keep the duo going. So I started to develop an idea for them, I thought maybe they could be delivery people who deliver food from The Furchester Hotel kitchen. That kind of moved on to the idea of Cookie Monster and Gonger having their own food truck, and they can serve food from the truck. I developed this idea with Carol-Lynn Parente, who was the Producer of ‘The Furchester Hotel’, and we wrote a 5-minute script. There was a food truck outside the studios where we were shooting in Manchester that was open at lunch time. So I asked the owner if I could use his truck for an hour and gave him some money and he gave me his van for an hour, and we shot a pilot with myself and David Rudman on iPhones, and that’s what helped us sell the show. This idea then merged into what you see in Season 48 of Sesame Street which is ‘Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck’.”
The segments are shot from three different perspectives: exterior shots using the whole truck on the street set, a raised set of the inside of the truck and the on-location footage of both the Foodie Truck's travels and the various food locations.
In promotion for the segment, the Foodie Truck was brought to the Metrograph theater in New York City on November 9, 2017 at a screening for The Magical Wand Chase. A smaller, two-dimensional version of the truck, playing footage from the "Foodie Truck" segments, is used at malls during the F is for Friends pop-up tour.
