6 Things You Need to Know About the Ice Cream Sandwich

If you’re a lover of cookies, ice cream, and sandwiches, then you’ll surely want to celebrate your all-time favorite ice cream sandwich on August 2 – National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. Ice cream is something that you’ll surely never refuse on a hot summer day. Stuffing it in-between two cookies is even better!

 

How the Ice Cream Sandwich Came About

The earliest known record of the ice cream sandwich dates back to 1900 when it was sold for a penny on the streets of the Bowery neighborhood in New York City. It was made of vanilla ice cream placed in-between two graham crackers. The vendor was reportedly so busy making the sandwiches that he made his customers pay exactly one penny because he didn’t have time to give their change.

The present version of the ice cream sandwich is credited to Jerry Newberg. He sold ice cream at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, PA, in 1945. However, unlike the original ice cream sandwich, he used two rectangular chocolate crackers instead of graham crackers.
