You're an adult. You pay your bills, you make your own decisions, and you possibly do neither of those things, because nobody can tell you what to do, you adult-aged man. You can also eat nothing but cookie dough for a week, which is why on the heels of our Ultimate Sandwich Countdown, we've seen fit to bring you a little dessert. Buon appetite!
The Ice Cream Sandwich (pictured above)
The Singaporeans know it as "potong ", with popular flavors including red bean, yam, sweet corn, durian, and honeydew. New Zealanders have their "vanilla slice". The Australian's call it a “cream between”, because they're gross criminals. But whether you buy it with singy, kiwi, or galah, the combination of smooth ice cream and chewy wafer is equally delicious.
Revered by indecisive desert lovers the world 'round, the Chipwich marries two postprandial treats in a pax de deux of silken ice cream and toothsome cookie. Also: chocolate goddamned chips.
The Pound Cake Sandwich
This 'wich takes its name not from what it contains, but how it contains it. How do you make a pound cake sandwich? Slam whatever you’d like between two buttery slabs of the stuff and enjoy. Fruit cream cheese? Pound cake sandwich. Whipped cream? Pound cake sandwich. A third piece of pound cake? Pound cake sandwich.
The Whoopie Pie
What is a whoopie pie? Is it sandwiched between two cookies? Is it sandwiched between two pieces of cake? Are either of those pies? Who knows, and who cares! They're the official state treat of Maine (call them the official dessert and blueberry pie will straight punk you), and the best thing to come from the Amish this side of endlessly hitting a hoop with a stick.
Sylvester Graham may have conceived his namesake cracker as a means to stymie the sex-crazed culture of the 1800s and rampant “self-abuse”, but with the invention of the s'more, it became an agent of abusing your arteries. Of course, the s'more is as much activity as sandwich, meaning its ultimate success lies in your greedy hands.
