Today we celebrate National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. The combination of ice cream stacked between the cookies that hold it together cannot be missed!
The ice cream sandwich first appeared in New York in the early 1900s. Originally, the dessert was sold by street vendors as a slab of ice cream between two papers, called hokey pokeys. However, it was messy and inconvenient, so the vendors instead started selling the ice cream between two wafer cookies, creating the now popular ice cream sandwich.
As ice cream sandwiches continued to grow in popularity, they continued to be modified. Today, ice cream sandwiches can be made with wafers, cookies, and more, and a variety of flavors of ice cream inside. Balchem’s flavor systems can help you customize a unique, delicious ice cream sandwich. If you prefer fun, unique flavors of ice cream, our variegates add swirls of texture and flavor, and our liquid chips and inclusions maximize flavor release and mouthfeel for a full sensory experience.
