Aug2 Fun Holiday – Ice Cream Sandwich Day

What is better than a scoop of ice cream on a hot (or cold or rainy or snowy) day? A scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two layers of cookies or cake. In other words, an ice cream sandwich!

Celebrated every year on August 2, the unofficial holiday is also known as National Ice Cream Sandwich Day in the US.

Many countries around the world have their own version of the ice cream sandwich. In Iran for example, rose or pistachio flavored ice cream is sandwiched between two thin wafers, while in Vietnam, street vendors sell ice cream stuffed between two layers of bread.

How to Celebrate?

  • Visit your local ice cream shop and treat yourself to an ice cream sandwich.
  • Make your own ice cream sandwiches and share with your family and friends. All you need is some wafers, cookies or biscuits and some ice cream.
  • Experiment with different kinds of ice cream flavors and outside layers of the sandwich. What about making a chipwich, for example? It is an ice cream sandwich made of ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies.

Did You Know…

…that according to the International Dairy Food Association, chocolate mint ice cream is the second most popular flavor of ice cream in the United States, after vanilla?
