Nobody knows who started National Ice Cream Sandwich Day … Believe me – I tried !!!

ice-cream-sandwich-Pückler-SchnitteWho cares who started it?

Just enjoy it.

Like this neapolitan style Germanic creation known as Erdbeer, Vanille und Schokoladeneis zwischen Waffeln Fürst-Pückler-Schnitte.

Imagine asking for one of those by name at your corner convenient store !

Apparently, it makes your puckler go schnitte !

It seems we have a day for everything in the United States.

I have always been a big fan of the ice cream sandwich. It seems to be the perfect combination of creamy vanilla ice cream and a thin, chocolate wafer on the top and bottom.

Chocolate-Oatmeal-Ice-Cream-SandwichA few weeks ago, we made very thin oatmeal cookies with coco powder in them.

We smeared about an inch of vanilla ice cream between two of those cookies making up a dozen or so.

We placed them on a baking sheet and into the freezer for a while. Once they were good and hard, we placed them individually in small zip top bags. What a treat !

However, the ice cream sandwich that is common in minute markets and boxed in grocery stores have the perfect balance of all the types of ice cream sandwiches. They were the same when I was a kid in the 60s and will be around forever hence. I am very sure of that !

Take a five minute vacation today and enjoy one.
