Is it hot enough for you? One way to cool off a bit is to have an ice cream sandwich. Today is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. This August 2 holiday is a time to enjoy a cold sandwich, one filled with ice cream in the center.
In July and August, we find many special days for one kind of ice cream or another. This sandwich is very popular because it tastes so good. So, that merits its own special day….today.
Ice cream sandwiches have been around since the early 1900s. Vanilla, chocolate, and a combination of the two are the most popular. You can make homemade ice cream sandwiches. Just put a thick layer of ice cream between a couple of wafers and Voila! Don’t have wafers? That’s okay. Put some ice cream between two of your favorite cookies.
