High Road Sugar Cookies with Red Berries Ice Cream Sandwiches

[New for 2019] I was pretty shocked when I rolled down the aisle at Shaw's and not only saw a bunch of High Road stuff, but it was new and on sale! We've never had High Road this close to the house before and here it is taunting me at 33% off. I bought four things including....

High Road Sugar Cookies with Red Berries Ice Cream Sandwiches
(mixed berry ice cream between two buttery sugar cookies)

Even at $3.99, that means these sandwiches are still two bucks a pop, so I hope they're good! (ok, I'm not really concerned that they will be good, it's a question of how good).


Ok, those cookies look a bit thin, but you know what? They pack a ton of flavor for their size. They could easily get lost here and they don't. I am impressed!

The flavor combo? Yeah, it works great. It's a nice berry flavor that is leaning pretty hard to the strawberry side, but is a bit more well rounded than a straight strawberry flavor. Mix that thick inner ice cream layer with the very soft but flavorful cookies and this was a delicious treat. I enjoyed every bite.

The only thing I want to do differently for next time is not eat it straight from the chest freezer. The thin cookies tempered much quicker than the solid core which I think took a smidge away from the experience. I hate nitpicking that they used such a nice solid ice cream for the filling, so let me clarify this is a tiny self imposed nitpick for a truly delicious sandwich. I loved loved loved this combo here and I will totally buy these again.

On Second Scoop: Mmmmm, still delicious. As you can tell, I really love this combo. I have no major complaints here, these are great.... geez, now I have another contender for favorite ice cream sandwich. I can't wait to try the chocolate chip ones I still have in the freezer.

Verdict?  Delicious
Buy Again?  YES!!
