Pop Art: Pop-Tarts Ice Cream Sandwiches for Serious Eats

Did you know that the ice cream sandwich was invented in the early 1900s, as a sanitary solution for serving ice cream on hot summer days? Well, times have changed since then—society and freezers have both evolved, and instead of sandwiching our ice cream between cookie wafers, we now have the ability to serve it between layers of another modern marvel, the Pop-Tart.

I had high hopes when I discovered this treasure of an idea on the official Pop-Tart site—and happily, these sweet treats lived up to every single one. They managed to meld nostalgia and delicious, rich flavor all in one sweet summery treat. I composed mine in two flavors: Strawberry frosted Pop-Tarts with strawberry ice cream, and S'mores Pop-Tarts sandwiched with decadent Rocky Road ice cream. But let's be honest, the flavor variations are virtually endless.

Oooooh! This made my inner-6 year old jump for joy. YUM! I'm thinking the fudge flavored poptarts with mint choc chip ice cream.

Oh, gosh! There's so many flavour combinations you could come up with! Maybe you could even toast your pop tarts beforehand... Mmm. :D

2 of my husbands favorite things, why didn't we think of this sooner. Thanks for sharing this idea.

thank you for passing this on...my very first thought was similar to Linda V's "Why didn't we think of this sooner?" Can't wait to try this out!

Again, I'm freaking out. How did I not think of this myself sooner?

I'm kind of surprised at the backlash of comments about this on the Serious Eats site. I mean, it's a very cute idea-- no one is forcing them to actually eat it. Argh.
