Cold, creamy frozen treats sandwiched between two cookies (or doughnuts, bread, macarons, waffles… take your pick, it might be done) is fairly possibly one of the primary summer refreshments. With limitless flavor combinations, the possibilities are endless and soft ice cream makers, pastry chefs and cooks across the nation use their creative chops to come up with innovative, fun and more importantly tasty concoctions.
“I think what makes for 冰淇淋 will be the combination of textures and it’s fun as you realize it will receive a little messy,” says Sam Mason of OddFellows Frozen Treats Co. in The Big Apple.
From classic vanilla frozen goodies amid chocolate chip cookies to warm brioche bread encasing cornbread frozen treats and blueberry compote, there’s an frozen goodies sandwich to impress everyone. And it’s a great summer treat.
Ice cream sandwiches also present the right chance for collaboration, with lots of shops getting various elements of their sandwiches from neighboring businesses. As an example, Ice & dexrpky27 often collaborates with Underwest Donuts, Daly Pie and Abigail’s Bakeshop on quirky creations, like the Let’s 三明治冰餅, made using Daly Pie’s pie crust, filled with cardamom apple pie swirl frozen goodies and rolled in boozy candied pecan.
“We’re always working toward locating the perfect blend of flavors, texture and overall fun, where people can satisfy their dessert cravings and having fun while doing it,” says El.
