Hood Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream Sandwich
Quick Review

I love classic ice cream sandwiches and it's pretty rare that you find an improvement, but Cookies 'n Cream sound like it might just work. At the very least, it's worth a try.

These are Hood Cookies 'n Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches
The box holds (8) 3.75 fl oz sandwiches and I want to say it was $2 or maybe $2.50

Let's do a quick close up. You can't really see any cookie bits on the inside.

Ok, I dig in... and, yeah, it didn't work. It's not a bad sandwich, but the teeny tiny cookie bits seem to take the edge off the classic ice cream vs wafer combo. To me it just seems to taste like a muted ice cream sandwich, nothing crazy or groundbreaking here. Oh well. It still does the job of an ice cream sandwich, I just don't love it.

On Second Scoop: As I was writing this post up, I realized the box says "Vanilla flavored ice cream with chocolate cookie pieces between DARK chocolate wafers". You know what that means? TASTE TEST!!

Hmmm, you know, I kind of am getting that dark chocolate vibe. Oh, it's not strong or anything, but these definitely are a tweak from your standard wafers. It's all so clear to me now and combined with my lowered expectations, I'm ok with these now.

Verdict?  Ok
Buy Again?  Nah, stick with the original (or the light version)
