"I am having a love affair with this ice cream sandwich." - George Bluth, Sr.
It's National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!
Ice cream sandwiches are popular worldwide.
In the U.S., vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between two soft chocolate wafers or chocolate chip cookies. This popular version was most likely created by street cart vendors at the turn of the 20th century.
In parts of the British Isles, they're known as "sliders"
New Zealand has something called the Vanilla Slice - a small block of wrapped vanilla ice cream with a side of two pink wafer biscuits packaged separately.
The Aussies original ice cream sandwich was commonly known as a "cream between."
And in Singapore, potong (or "phia ice cream", which literally means "biscuit ice cream" in Hokkien dialect) flavors include red bean, yam, corn, honeydew, pepermint, chocolate chip.
Wherever you're located today... worldwide or in jail (George Bluth, Sr. - this one's for you!), I hope you get to enjoy an ice cream sandwich or four.
