I have an issue with the "soft cakelike wafer" description. We went to the ice cream sandwich factory and right off the production line, the wafer was as crisp as a craker. I think it just softens up in the freezer as it absorbs moisture from the ice cream. The crunchy texture was much better imo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:47, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

The note on ice cream sandwiches in the USA comes courtesy of this Ice cream recipe web site.

The following was removed from the 'Australia' Section on 13/10/2006.

"I like ice cream sandwhich very much because lets face it they are the epitome of a good dessert. I mean you got the ice cream in the middle of two cookies (if you will) I think if people spent more time eating ice cream sandwhiches and less time fighting then we would would all live in a better world."

Controversy Section[edit]

What's the deal with the section labelled "Sandwich Controversy"? It's entirely unencyclopaedic, referring to an apparent discussion in the Wikipedia community (the discussion in question, I notice, is nowhere in sight.

I'm a beginner here, so I've left it for a more experienced user to delete. I'll check back in a week and do it if nobody else has... unless someone provides a reason for it to stay. --Dazcha 08:47, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

Long Treat[edit]

As a boy in Newfoundland, I've heard ice cream sandwiches referred to almost exclusively as "long treats", seeming to reference an American brand. This would not be unusual, since before Confederation a lot of imports came from the US (a lot of American servicemen were stationed in St. John's & Argentia during the war) as opposed to Canada. However, I do not have any cites or further info other than my own (limited) experience, which is decidedly OR. Can anyone support this? Is this name (long treat) in use anywhere else? Can anyone point to any info on the Long Treat, such as where it originated, exported, etc? Thanks. -- SigPig \SEND - OVER 20:54, 15 November 2006 (UTC)


Current ice cream sandwiches made by Meadow Gold in the USA are approximately 1-3/4 wide x 5 long x 7/8 inches thick and 3.1 fl ounces. Other brands are around the same size. I remember them being at least 2 inches wide or wider in the 70's and 80's. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bizzybody (talkcontribs) 06:04, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
