National Ice Cream Sandwich Day celebrates that easy to eat and tasty 100+ year old combination of cookie and ice cream. The first ice cream sandwich appeared in New York City and sold from a street cart for 1 penny. The standard style of sandwich we usually find in grocery stores today is said to have been developed and originally sold in Pittsburg.
Whether you buy ice ceream sandwiches off-the-rack or make them at home with your own special recipe, enjoy a cold one on these hot summer days.
National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is celebrated annually on August 2nd.
