Ice Cream Sandwich: What Is It And Why Does It Have It’s Own Day?

I first heard about ice cream sandwiches when I was around 9 years old. There was a short lived tv series in the 1980s called Misfits Of Science and in one of the episodes, a lead cast member dates this young woman and as they are walking around the streets of San Fransisco, she asks him for an ice cream sandwich, which he proceeds to buy from a street vendor. That was the first time I have heard of the treat but I have never had it. Not once.

So what is an ice cream sandwich? An ice cream sandwich is a frozen dessert consisting of ice cream between two biscuits, skins, wafers, or cookies. The ingredients are different around the world, with Ireland and Israel using wafers, and North America using chocolate cookies. The original ice cream sandwich sold for a penny in 1900 from a pushcart in the Bowery neighborhood of New York. Newspapers never identified the name of the vendor in articles that appeared across the country. However, the ice cream sandwiched between milk biscuits became a hit. Soon, pushcarts popped up around the city and country during the summer months selling the portable treats.

Once ice cream sandwiches became popular, recipes for home cooks filled the papers. The sandwich layers included everything from angel food and sponge cake to shortbread cookies. Restaurants offered the ice cream sandwich as a decadent dessert for travelers. By 1940, grocers sold sandwiches made with crispy wafers (which is the kind I have seen more off). Now, I see that there are a few options in India but I haven’t found one in my city, but I will keep looking. They look delicious.

If I Could Be Anyone In The World For A Day!

If I could be anyone in the world for a day, I would be

Hmmm, I dunno. Maybe Prime Minister or President of a nation? A very rich businessman with a personal financial fortune of in the Billions! Maybe I could transfer some of that money to my personal account so after that one day, I will still have a lot of money!

A famous actor will a horde of gushing fans, especially women, swooning as I make my “grand entrance” and grabbing me for selfies and autographs. Said signatures of mine might be on the ample bosoms of randy looking hot women! LOL, I will never change. Or, I could be incharge of the Playboy mansion and have my fun with all my Playboy bunnies.

Or I could be a viril stud of a porn star and have to shoot a threesome with a couple of my favourite female pornstars that ends up in a very, very satisfying explosion of pleasure for the 3 of us. Ah yeah! Actually I would also love to be a singer/guitarist in a famous rock band and perform in front of a 100000 people and while I am performing, having the entire audience sing my song back to me. That would be awesome!
