Ice Cream Sandwiches at Milk & Cookies!

Milk & Cookies Ice Cream Sandwiches
It's hard work bathing suit shopping this time of year. Every store seems to have moved onto coats and boots. What about us with bathing suits and sandals that need replacing? I got about another month of beaching to do here! There's surfing to be done! Ugh, frustrating. So I comforted myself with an ice cream sandwich in the West Village.

Milk & Cookies Ice Cream Sandwiches
Milk & Cookies has been around for years, yet I had never tried it out for myself. Wrong move. The ice cream sandwiches are made with il laboratorio del gelato, the cookies being made in house, naturally. They have a bunch of delicious flavor combinations, but I decided to go with the Overload--peanut butter and chocolate is one of my most favorite flavor combos. My friend went with the Grasshopper and liked it enough, but wished she had mine. These sandwiches are a win if you get a bigger cookie base. You'll get the same amount of ice cream, but the spreading means less chance of a ice cream cookie sandwich mashing, though the chewy cookies did prevent any epic failure. The con with bigger cookies did mean more melting onto your hand. I definitely need to stop by again soon to try more treats!

Ohhhhhhh...your combo does sound great! I love that place, but haven't tried those flavors. Love how much thought you put into the purchase though (cookie base and all). Very scientific! :)
