If you're looking for something to do today then head to your freezer because it's National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!  Sink your teeth into something sweet and fulfilling!  Let's get right into celebrating National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!  

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well, when I think of an ice cream sandwich I think of something that satisfies me on many levels. It's sugary sweet, it cools you off and you can't help but want another one! Kids love them, adults love them... it seems like everyone loves them! So with such popularity coupled with the fact that it's so hot outside it really seems like it's a no-brainer to want to celebrate ice cream sandwiches on this day. I mean, if I handed you one right now would you eat it? I thought so!  All it takes to be considered an ice cream sandwich is the fact that there is some ice cream sandwiched between two biscuits, wafers or cookies. And sure, those cookies might be a little soft by the time you bite through them but it makes it a lot easier to get to that ice cream! The standard ice cream sandwich you'd find in the United States is a long, rectangular sandwich made up of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate wafers.   But there are many variations of ice cream sandwiches all over the globe. You could get a Maxibon from Australia, which is half ice cream sandwich, half chocolate-dipped ice cream. In Scotland, you can get a double nougat slider, as they call them, which is ice cream sandwiched between two nougat wafers. Or you could head on over to New Jersey and get a Rice Cream sandwich, which is ice cream sandwiched between two rice crispie treats. That sounds pretty dang good!  How do you like your ice cream sandwiches?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, if you're lucky enough to already be stocked up on ice cream sandwiches then just head to your freezer, unwrap your sandwich and slap it on your tongue! That was easy, wasn't it? But if you don't have any at the moment, then wait outside for the familiar jingle of the ice cream truck, like a lion stalking its prey. Then pounce on it as soon as it drives by and order up your favorite kind of ice cream sandwiches. Do ice cream trucks still drive through your area?  And of course you're always welcome to head to the store so that you can pick up a full box of these frozen beauties! Get a few boxes and compete with your friends if you like. See who can eat an ice cream sandwich the fastest... that ought to be fun! I'm sure you'll all enjoy the brain freeze and the stuffed faces of your friends. The winner gets the rest of the box, because you know they will want another one!  But you can also experiment with the ice cream sandwiches a little. How can you make this treat even better? You could attempt to pour melted white chocolate over it... just be sure to do it quickly and to completely seal all sides or the ice cream will melt and run out! If you can master that task, then sprinkle some deliciousness on the melted chocolate before it cools off. Perhaps some toffee chunks? Then pop it back in the freezer and test it out once it's completely solid. You could also attempt to inject it with some caramel too if you want to really add a kick to it. What would you do to make it better?  Have a great day but never pack this sandwich for your lunch, unless of course you live in Antarctica!
