While there are certainly plenty of options and combinations, why not go big for National Ice Cream Sandwich Day and choose the Monster’wich?
The Monster’wich is one Classic cookie and a scoop of ice cream monster-mashed between two Classic cookies. You can also mix in up to two additional toppings for an extra charge which makes it even more monstrous!
Or go big in a smaller way, like I did with the Cookie’wich. The Cookie’wich is a scoop of cold ice cream sandwiched between two warm Classic cookies and just as perfect for National Ice Cream Sandwich Day.
