I scream, you scream, we all scream for—ice cream sandwiches, actually. 

The real stuff. Not the synthetic fauxnilla clogged between two soggy chocolate wafers. Oh, no. We’re talking homespun, mouthwatering yumminess: ice cream sammies from your local favorite, CREAM. Sure, the sight of the line that stretches down the street is a turn-off, but it’s pretty hard to walk away once you’re hit by the smell of freshly-baked cookies.

The decision in the store is even more difficult. With 20 ice cream flavors and 10 cookie options to pick from, it’s bound to take a while to concoct your perfect sandwich. 

No worries. Spoon’s professional taste-testers have done all of the dirty work for you. Sit back, relax and try to refrain from drooling on your electronic devices.

9. In Mint Condition

One double chocolate chip cookie, one chocolate chip with soy mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiched in between. It’s refreshing and essentially a breath mint in the form of a dessert (which could always come in handy).

It’s important to note that you can’t buy happiness. But you can buy a customizable CREAM sandwich for two bucks.

And that’s kind of the same thing.
