  National Ice Cream Sandwich Day!
When is Ice Cream Sandwich Day? August 2th!

How is this holiday celebrated?
Get that freezer stocked up with ice cream sandwiches because Ice Cream Sandwich Day is the day to eat till your hearts content!  You may like the idea of making your own homemade ice cream sandwiches. Get that cookie recipe out and bake away- remember to let the cookies cool completely before cutting up the ice cream in squares; then sandwich between the cookies. It's fun to roll the edges in toppings like nuts, sprinckles, chocolate chips, coconut or anything else you can think of.

Origin of this Holiday?
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day. We did however find that this holiday has been celebrated for years and the ice cream sandwich does have a history. There is plenty of documentation to support that this holiday does indeed exist. - Was this this holiday created by a food organization? Our research couldn't find the answer to that question - This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate. So have fun with it and celebrate it!

"Within Australia, ice cream sandwiches are given the commercial name of “Giant Sandwich” (recognizable by its distinct blue and pink wrapper), and “Monaco Bar” (recognizable by its gold and black metallic wrapper) in the Eastern states. Other varieties include Streets “Cookie”, “Maxibon” (with one-half ice cream sandwich) and “Maxibon Cookie”."

"In Scotland they are known as 'sliders' - usually served as vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two rectangle wafers."

"In Scotland one can buy sliders consisting of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between one wafer and one block of chocolate-covered nougat. These are known as nougat sliders. Alternatively, called a 'single nougat' or in the case of two blocks of nougat; a 'double nougat'. In this context the word nougat is pronounced as in gold nugget."

"Wafer ice cream is a type of ice cream popular in Singapore. It consists of two original wafers holding together a block of ice cream. Vendors are commonly found along Orchard Road, Chinatown and outside schools."

"Common flavours offered include Ripple, Red bean, Yam, Sweet corn, Durian, Honeydew, Peppermint, Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip. Wafer ice cream vendors also sell the same blocks of ice cream on a slice of multicolored bread, a cone or a cup instead of sandwiched between wafers."

Ireland, England & Wales
"In Ireland, England and Wales an ice cream wafer, consisting of a small block of ice cream between two rectangular wafer biscuits, was a popular alternative to a cone up until the 1970s. Since then it has declined and is now rarely seen."

United States
"In the United States, an ice cream sandwich is a slice of ice cream, commonly vanilla although other flavors are often used, sandwiched between two rectangular wafers, usually chocolate."

"Alternatives to wafers are often used, such as chocolate chip cookies. Many companies offer alternatives to the conventional ice cream sandwich as well, such as San Francisco's It's-It, who use oatmeal cookies and dip the sandwich in dark chocolate, New Jersey-based Rice Creams, Inc., who use crispy rice and marshmallow wafers, and Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams of Columbus, Ohio, who use artisan ice creams and almond macaroons."
