August 2: National Ice Cream Sandwich Day

Ice cream sandwiches are handheld desserts consisting of a slice of ice cream (usually vanilla), with a small layer of a soft cake-like pastry wafers (usually chocolate) on the top and bottom.

The current version was invented in 1945 by Jerry Newberg when he was selling ice cream at Forbes field.

Alternatives to wafers are often used, such as chocolate chip cookies. Many companies offer alternatives to the conventional ice cream sandwich as well, such as San Francisco’s It’s-It, who use oatmeal cookies and dip the sandwich in dark chocolate.
