I Scream, You Scream … for a Ding Dong Ice Cream Sandwich
Everyone loves an ice cream sandwich. Vanilla ice cream nestled between two soft-crisp chocolate cookies dotted with a grid of small holes (why do those wafers have holes in them, anyway?) are surely among summer’s greatest pleasures.
Now the menu mavens at Carl’s Jr. have added a new dimension to your regular everyday ice cream-sandwich deliciousness by introducing a new version in which “ hand-scooped” vanilla ice cream is sandwiched between two halves of a Hostess Ding Dong.
Having just hit the burger chain, the Carl’s Jr. Ding Dong Ice Cream Sandwich will be available for $1.49 apiece throughout the summer. The company’s chief marketing officer, Brad Haley, told Time the Ding Dong was picked over a bunch of other vanilla ice cream vehicles because it was found to be “the most delicious ‘carrier’ for our latest ice cream sandwich.”
Ding-dong — your appetite is calling.
