It’s the best of both worlds: cookie like wafers and ice cream all in one. Two of the most ordinary treats molded together to create pure goodness: the ice cream sandwich. While National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is only celebrated nationally, this delicious treat is eaten all over the world.
A favorite of Australia, ice cream sandwiches are typically called “Giant Sandwiches” or “Maxibon Cookies.” These signature treats are typically half-dipped in chocolate. One of the most exotic ice cream sandwiches is found in Singapore. Ripple, red bean, yam, sweet corn and honeydew are all popular flavors.
In America, a slice of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate rectangular wafers is what is considered the traditional ice cream sandwich. Who says you have to be conventional? Other versions include ice cream between two warm chocolate chip cookies. The Blue Bunny Chips Galore is just that. Rich, vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies and rolled in chocolate chips! Sounds yummy! Whatever your flavor choice is, pick up your fave ice cream sandwiches and celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!
