Good tips and tricks to enjoy a delicious ice cream sandwich without breaking the bank
Ice cream sandwiches have had a revival and are officially the coolest treat in town.
The tasty treat is really simple to prepare.
Use these tips and deals to enjoy a delicious bite of seaside nostalgia.
BACK TO BASICS: Traditionally an ice cream sandwich is a slice of chewy scoop between two wafers.
It’s easy to make at home with Sainsbury’s Ready-to-Slice Vanilla Ice Cream, £1.10, and Asda Ice Cream Wafers, 65p.
Upgrade the wafers to give your sandwich a new twist.
Carousel nougat wafers cost £1.70 for a packet at Tesco, while Carousel Oyster delight wafers cost £1.70 at Sainsbury’s.
Morrisons Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches, at £1.75 for a pack of eight, are an easy, ready-made alternative.
STUCK IN THE MIDDLE: The latest incarnation of ice cream sandwiches uses chocolate cookies, biscuits, cakes and even macrons to replace the wafer.
Experiment with ice cream flavor combinations.
Chocolate lovers will love Sainsbury’s fresh double chocolate biscuits, five for £1, as a sandwich.
Sainsbury’s Sweet Spoon Chocolate Ice Cream, £2 for a tub, works well as a topping.
Another delicious combination is Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference Salted Caramel Fresh Biscuits, currently £1.25, down from £1.65, with Morrisons Salted Caramel Ice Cream, £1.75 for a tub.
And if you’re feeling more creative, bake two thin layers of brownie mix to cut and use as a sandwich.
Sainsbury’s is selling a mix of chocolate brownies for £1.90. Combine with Tesco Mint Chocolate Ice Cream for a cool taste sensation.
READY TO EAT: If you want to dive into frozen fashion without the faff, Oreo ice cream sandwiches are £2 for a box of four at Morrisons, or two packs for £3.50.
And Gianni’s chocolate chip ice cream sandwich, biscuits and ice cream sandwich both cost £2.09 at Aldi.
