Taster’s Cherce

The wife and I had dinner at our friend’s place the other night. Watched the Olympics and ordered in from a terrific Indian restaurant. We were stuffed and forgot to eat dessert. Okay, I didn’t forget, I showed some discipline in not asking for an ice cream sandwich. Our friends are the only people we know who stock ice cream sandwiches in their freezer. On the regular as they say.

I think they buy White Rose or some other budget brand. Doesn’t matter to me cause an ice cream sandwich is an ice cream sandwich and I ain’t picky.

But over at Serious Eats, here’s a taste test of ice cream sandwiches for you to check out.

Wowzrs, close call between the Nestle and Good Humor. We were definitely an ince cream sandwich family growing up, but didn't really discriminate by brand. They are rare in my household now because there's the temptation to not just eat one (they are generally pretty small); a flavorful one that comes in a box of six will not last the day it was bought, and I may be lucky to get even one.

Klondike should just stick to Klondike bars and their variety of flavors within. They are not good with the sandwich; as stated the shape leaves a lot to be desired and is a negative factor in the mind. They are excellent for what they are known for, but nothing more. The big problem I have with ice cream sandwiches is that they are usually so small that again, you are tempted to eat more than one, which is a no-no. Perhaps I should attempt to make my own and staisfy my craving for the quarter that way...

Since I haven't thought about the choices individually, based on description I'd have to go with Nestle, but I should give them both a test first.

The menu looks tasty. I've only recently become a fan of Indian food (some of it, not all). Always looking for a new place to try. I do like Taj Tribeca downtown an Baluchi's by me in Queens as well.
