Friendly's Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry Friendwich

[Limited Edition] Have you noticed that there are fewer and fewer Friendly's treats on store shelves? Sure, the big chippers are hanging around but that's just parent company Dean's reusing a product across all of their brand names. Anyway, there are a few stragglers left like...

Friendly's Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry Friendwich

Thanks for branding the wrapper! (that's not sarcasm)

So traditional sandwich wafers but with three different flavors broken up evenly. My favorite is the strawberry section. In fact, I kind of want a sandwich that's just strawberry in the middle.... or, ooo ooo ooo, has anyway ever made a black raspberry ice cream sandwich? I've done it at home but I've never seen it in the freezer aisle. I know black raspberry is kind of old fashion, but it still holds a very important place in my heart.

On Second Scoop: I think I prefer to start with the strawberry side and work my way towards the chocolate side. If you start with the chocolate, it's just a bit much, but if you work towards it, it's just a bit less shocking. If I had to describe it, the chocolate reminds me of chocolate softserve I think. Sounds like it should be tasty, but it just comes across as a bit strong when paired with the chocolate wafers, so you have to work your way up to the chocolate.

Verdict?  different enough
Buy Again?  I might!

I have very fond memories of getting black raspberry ice cream as a kid, and I still love it as an adult. It’s a very underrated flavor!
