Celebrated every year on August 2nd, the unofficial holiday is also known as National Ice Cream Sandwich Day in the US. Many countries around the world have their own version of the ice cream sandwich. In Vietnam for example, street vendors sell ice cream stuffed between two layers of bread, while in Iran, pistachio or rose flavored ice cream is sandwiched between two thin wafers.
Why We Love National Ice Cream Sandwich Day
1. Endless Amounts of Flavors
Don’t like vanilla? Not a fan of caramel? Maybe you’re not that into sherbet? No matter what you like, there’s an ice cream flavor out there for you.
2. Happiness in Every Bite
When you’re sad, a nicely made ice cream sandwich will be there to brighten your day. Ice cream is scientifically proven to aid you through breakups, heartaches, and other major causes of sadness.
3. Ice Cream Sandwiches Are Good For All Seasons
During summertime, you can cool off from a delicious ice cream sandwich and in the winter, you can pour on that hot fudge on your sandwich to make the ultimate ice cream dessert. Did anyone say fondue?
