Sweet Treats for National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

By Emma Laperruque | August 2, 2012

Time to change up your lunch order! Turkey and whole wheat is the “smart” choice, sure, but it’s National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, and do you really want to be the stick-in-the-mud who doesn’t celebrate? We plan to embrace the holiday like toddlers on Christmas.

While the classic Good Humor version—rectangular, mushy chocolate wafers, meh vanilla ice cream—was nothing to rejoice about, the treat has come a long way. Humphrey Slocombe uses foie gras ice cream. Holey Cream uses doughnuts. Talk about thinking outside the cookie tray. Now ice cream sandwiches are all about creative combinations, so we’ve paired up a few favorite recipes for the festivities. (Of course, feel free to mix and match as you please. It’s hard to go wrong.) See below:
