I ran out to lunch for a little change of pace. I swung over to Roche Brothers and what do I see but individually wrapped 600 gorillas ice cream sandwiches at 2 for $3. Oh yeah, time to indulge.
600 gorillas premium chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwich
With Vanilla Bean Ice Cream no less!
(note: says 4.0 fl oz on the front, 3.4 weight oz on the back)
You know what? With such a big company name, I expected larger.
I thought I would be sneaky and do a side view quarter test... Yeah, didn't work.
Hopefully you can still see all the wonderful vanilla bean flakes.
The great news here is that my $1.50 was very well spent. This sandwich is excellent.
Now don't be worried that this is some mushy thing that will stick to your fingers and just make a mess. It had just enough goo to hold it together but not so gooey as too feel heavy and overfilling. Can't say enough about the cookies. Could they use a few more chocolate chips in them? Maybe, I guess it's possible if you are use to cookies with the edges rolled in chips, but that's the worst critique I could make here. Personally I think I like them just the way they are.
Notice in the picture that the cookie to ice cream ratio is about 1 to 1. It's a wonderful ratio here because it's a soft, rich, creamy ice cream that's happy to tie these excellent cookies together. The flavor is simple and clean and is happy to take the back seat here. I wish all sandwiches were held together with something similar instead of the typical bland or gummy substance that we find all too often.
Excellent job guys, I really dig this all natural treat. The first bite was good and it just got better from there. I feel down right silly for waiting so long to try these.
