ice cream sandwiches, all grown up
July 31st, 2015
August 2nd is perhaps the sweetest day of the year. We’ve got the scoop on where you should be celebrating Ice Cream Sandwich Day (pun intended). Here are our picks for the best childhood favorite revamps.
After work (New York City):
Skip happy hour and satisfy your sweet tooth. As if Shmackary’s cookies weren’t tasty enough on their own, you can amplify your dessert by adding vanilla bean gelato. Choose any two cookies (they have over 65 different flavors) to create the ultimate frozen treat. We suggest one Classic Chocolate Chip and one of their seasonal Blueberry Cobbler cookies- you won’t be disappointed.

At the beach (Montauk):
No one feels bikini-ready after a sugar binge. Here’s a way to celebrate and lessen the guilt that your two-piece brings. The Fresh Fruit Ice Cream Sandwich at Harvest on Fort Pond is served with vanilla gelato, hot fudge and raspberry coulis- so not entirely guilt free, but fruit is healthy right?

At home (your kitchen):
Now this one is definitely not your traditional childhood treat- Cognac-Ice-Cream sandwiches. Inspired by a bakery in San Francisco that refused to separate booze from dessert, this recipe is sure to impress any of your “adult” guests.

In Paradise (Brazil):
Made from cashew nuts of local farms and cacao beans from the garden, UXUA’s homemade ice cream is the center of this savory sweet. When dessert meets innovation, only good things can happen!
