Cold, creamy frozen goodies sandwiched between two cookies (or doughnuts, bread, macarons, waffles… you name it, it can be done) is fairly possibly one of the greatest summer refreshments. With limitless flavor combinations, the chances are endless and frozen treats makers, pastry chefs and cooks throughout the country are utilizing their creative chops to come up with innovative, fun and most importantly tasty concoctions.
“I think why is for 冰淇淋 may be the mixture of textures and it’s fun simply because you know it will get a little messy,” says Sam Mason of OddFellows Frozen Goodies Co. in Ny City.
From classic vanilla frozen treats amid chocolate chip cookies to warm brioche bread encasing cornbread soft ice cream and blueberry compote, there’s an frozen treats sandwich to please everyone. And it’s a perfect summer treat.
“Ice cream sandwiches will be the perfect combination of soft ice cream and pastry,” says Ken El, co-owner of The Big Apple frozen goodies shop Ice & Vice. “You can utilize cookies, cakes, whatever you want really, and load it with toppings, while being perfectly on the run. It’s whimsical and extremely brings you returning to your childhood.”
Frozen goodies sandwiches also present an ideal potential for collaboration, with a lot of shops getting various elements of their sandwiches from neighboring businesses. For 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 out of Daly Pie’s pie crust, filled up with cardamom apple pie swirl frozen treats and rolled in boozy candied pecan.
“We’re always working toward finding the perfect combination of flavors, texture and overall fun, where people can satisfy their dessert cravings and having fun while doing the work,” says El.
