Perry's Sweet Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches

[New for April 2017] Perry's was nice enough to send over a care package containing free samples of some of their latest and greatest stuff now debuting for 2017. Included in the package was two new varieties of ice cream sandwich and regular readers now I love ice cream sandwiches. Since mint isn't really my thing in the early AM, I decided to grab this for the road:

Perry's Sweet Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches
creamy ice cream with a hint of sweetness
sandwiched between two chocolate wafers

Plain white wrapper removed and it looks like a standard ice cream sandwich. For the most part, it tastes like a regular sandwich too but with a nice bit of added sweetness to it. My wafers are a bit crunchy which I am enjoying though I don't know if that's a side effect of the dry ice trip from Buffalo (if you have Perry's locally to you, let me know if their wafers are always crunchy).

The funny thing is that the real difference didn't hit me until I finished. The final note here is actually one of chilly cream cheese. I'm not a big fan of cream cheese on a hot bagel, but I do put cold cream cheese on Ritz crackers from time to time and that is the aftertaste I get here. It's not super strong, but it's undeniable. I can't say I've ever had that happen before in an ice cream sandwich.

On Second Scoop: I started and ended my day with these sandwiches and I enjoyed both of them. I really dig that cold cream cheese vibe (flavor, not texture) that's not very distinct in my mind with every bite. It's a simple, straightforward idea but it works really well. I love ice cream sandwiches and it's nice to have something different yet still familiar like this. On the way into work, I was thinking about how they could build off this with maybe a different wafer or swirled ice cream. I'd love a graham wafer or maybe even something like a red velvet wafer. That reminds me, I should point out that the chocolate from the wafers isn't very strong here and so the wafers allow the sweet cream filling to do it's job. Neat little product Perry's.

Verdict?  tasty
Buy Again?  yup

allergy note: processed on shared equipment

Perry's also announced on their Facebook a new Cotton Candy and Cold Brew Coffee & Cream flavor... if you could review these for us that would be awesome!!!

@B: thanks man!

@Caitlin: they sent cold brew coffee but it will be a pretty quick review since I don't dig coffee. I think they sent it because it's completely new while cotton candy is just new to the freezer aisle.

I always get Perry's ice cream when its on sale because I actually like the crunchy wafers, I got cream in the middle of my grocery trip and by the time I got home the wafers softened. And the sweet cream had like almost a buttery taste to it when it softend and came to temperature. I have buy it freshly frozen because I want to taste it crunchy
