Ice Cream Sandwich Upgrade

Ever since John Montagu, the Earl of Sandwich, told a peon, “Bring me some meat between two pieces of bread so that I may eat while I continue to play cribbage or whist whatever old-timey card game I’m playing right now,” the “sandwich” has been a popular mealtime choice. But in the same way that slicing bread was surpassed by sliced bread, the traditional sandwich was made forever better when it morphed into the dessert sandwich. The ice cream sandwich. Man, those things are tasty. But it turns out that they can be even better.

I don’t know what mad genius first realized that you can make an ice cream sandwich out of a Pop Tart but that guy deserves some kind of a prize. I learned about this ice cream sandwich upgrade from my friend Jeremy to whom I will be eternally grateful.

Step One: Get some ice cream and some Pop Tarts. I prefer vanilla ice cream and Strawberry Pop Tarts but since I’d just bought a box of the seasonal Pumpkin Pie kind to give them a try (they’re okay I guess but they just made me want a regular Pop Tart and a piece of actual pumpkin pie) I went with what I had in the cabinet.

Step Two: Cut the Pop Tart in half. (Or just use two whole Pop Tarts like a real man.)

Step Three: Plop a scoop of ice cream on a half of Pop Tart.

Step Four: Drop the other half on top and enjoy!

I think even that snooty dandy The Earl of Sandwich would have approved.
