No doubt about it, these ice cream sandwiches more than live up to their name. Trader Joe's Sublime Ice Cream Sandwiches came about a few years ago when we realized we could do better than most of the ice cream sandwiches we found in grocers' freezers. It took months and months of tasting and re-tasting by our panel. (Yes, it's a messy job, but we’re pretty sure we're up to the task.) When the chocolate chip cookies finally reached the proper crunchy-chewy ratio, we moved on to the ice cream. After a few go-rounds, we landed on the ideal combination of cookie and ice cream. Then, of course, we had to make them even better. So we rolled the sides in mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Trust us on this one; these Ice Cream Sandwiches have truly earned their Sublime moniker. And they're sublimely priced at a mere $3.99 for a package of four. (We do have one little hint to maximize enjoyment. Let them soften for a few minutes so the texture is just perfect!) You'll find them – where else? – in our freezers.
