Today is Ice Cream Sandwich Day! The holiday started in the 1900s. It is celebrated every year Aug 2. The original sandwich was made with milk biscuits and ice cream. They quickly gained popularity, because they were cheap and portable.
Today, ice cream sandwiches are not hard to find. Most convenient stores sell them. You can pick up a box from a grocery store. Plus, it’s an ice cream truck staple. If you have the time and supplies, you can make your own!
