Best Grown-Up Ice Cream Sandwiches - 2005
It's not that we don't love the gummy chocolate-flavored cookies glued together with pasty artificial vanilla ice cream that you can buy in any convenience store, if only for their nostalgic appeal. But Citizen Cake's ice cream sandwiches are surely the living end of all cookies-and-cream desserts. For a well-worth-it $3.75 you can request your choice of any two freshly baked cookies -- chocolate chip, oatmeal-raisin, peanut butter, or one of the more exotic choices like ginger-molasses -- and any of the divinely creamy ice creams and gelatos available that day, and have the kitchen produce a frozen treat custom made for you. Our favorite combo is the mint chocolate chip gelato between chocolate espresso cookies, but you can let your own tastes guide you to the perfect pairing.
