Good Humor Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

[New for 2016] At this point in the 2016 ice cream season, I'm basically just holding out for sales on what hasn't been covered yet. Not that $4.50 is a huge price for a box of four treats, but I'd much rather spend three bucks for...

Good Humor Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

(notice no mention of the words "ice cream")

I'll admit, it looks a little small at first,

but other than that, it looks good!

I try inhale it and it's about what I expected for a budget sandwich. I wasn't expecting great here. I get that I can have 8 of these for the price of one Coolhaus sandwich.

It's nothing super rich or decadent but it's got decent flavor and decent texture. The cookies are the right softness (without being sticky), and the chocolate chips help amp up the overall appeal here. Without the chips, you might focus on the budget aspect of this treat, but with the chips, you can more easily forgive the frozen dairy dessert inside.

On Second Scoop: As I finished off the box, these totally grew on me. They have a good ratio to everything, good overall texture, and they're different. It's not a deep or provocative chocolate flavor, but I can totally see having a box of these in the freezer along with a box of your standard chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with vanilla ice cream so that you can just pick whichever you are in the mood for. Good job bringing us some diversity Good Humor.

Verdict?  cost effective alternative
Buy Again?  sure

HA! It's not that bad really considering there are cookies involved. Go look at the ingredients on a friendy's sundae cup, now that's a long list!
