National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!

Mariner's July 31 Ice Cream SandwichSeems like the 4th of July just came and went, and now another national holiday has come upon us – National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!  Huh?  Yes, August 2nd is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day – a bona fide national holiday according to the unanimous consensus of mommy blogs, foodie websites, and family magazines across America!

Now the cynical conspiracy theorist may grumble that this national holiday was manufactured by the ice cream industrial complex elites to peddle more ice cream sandwiches.  We say, who cares!  Let’s all eat ice cream sandwiches like it’s 1999!  Mmmm…chocolatey, moist cookies and cold, vanilla ice cream melting in your mouth with each savory bite.  Oh, the tantalizing, resplendent layers of cookie and ice cream goodness!  If this delicious treat doesn’t call for celebration, then I don’t know what does!

Why not commemorate this magnanimous day by making your very own Ice Cream Sandwiches at home?  You can go the traditional route with chocolate wafers and vanilla ice cream or venture out by trying various cookie and ice cream flavor combinations.  Keep it simple and use store bought cookies and ice cream or make an activity of it with the kids by making one or both ingredients from scratch!

In case you need some inspiration, here is our round up of links to yummy recipes that will get your mouth watering!
