Just a few weeks ago we were celebrating Fourth of July and now another highly significant holiday is upon us! Today, August 2nd, is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! Say what? Yes, National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – a bona fide national holiday according to the unanimous consensus of mommy blogs, foodie websites, and family magazines across our great nation!
Well, it makes sense to me. After all, Ice Cream Sandwiches are practically as American as apple pie! Dating as far back as 1899, they are pictured in 1905 photos taken at the Jersey Shore for 1 cent each. Thankfully, although the price has definitely changed, Ice Cream Sandwiches are here to stay! Mmmm…chocolatey, moist cookies and cold, vanilla ice cream melting in your mouth with each savory bite. Oh, the tantalizing, resplendent layers of cookie and ice cream goodness! Such decadent deliciousness calls for celebration!
Why not commemorate this magnanimous day by making your very own Ice Cream Sandwiches at home? You can go the traditional route with chocolate wafers and vanilla ice cream or venture out by trying various cookie and ice cream flavor combinations. Keep it simple and use store bought cookies and ice cream or make an activity of it by making one or both ingredients from scratch!
In case you need some inspiration, here is our round up of links to yummy recipes that will get your mouth watering!
It’s National Ice Cream Sandwich Day! So, go ahead and buy one or make some, and maybe even invite some friends over to share in the festivities! Whatever you do, make sure you have an ice cream sandwich in honor of this meritorious holiday. Your inner child will thank you!
