Sweetery Now Selling Melt Bakery Ice Cream Sandwiches
A month or so ago, Sweetery NYC (formerly Street Sweets) begun carrying ice cream sandwiches. This ice cream sandwich expert saw the flavor combinations and knew that the sandwiches were coming from Melt Bakery. If any of you stopped by the Hester Street Fair last summer, you might have stopped by their booth. And even though the weather hasn’t fully turned to wonderful out, it’s always the time for ice cream. Even if that ice cream comes completely frozen and will set you back a pretty penny.
Sweetery NYC doesn’t come to Midtown nearly as often as they used to, but they can be found almost every Wednesday at 52nd and Lexington. Melt Bakery offers quite a few unique flavor combinations and Sweetery is carrying the most current of their rotating menu. I decided to check out the Cinnamax: snickerdoodle cookies with cinnamon ice cream. Due the dry ice packing, the sandwich will be frozen solid when you get it-once it’s 90 out, this won’t be so much of an issue. It took mine about 20 minutes to become edible. Once it’s thawed, the cookie is chewy enough to bite without breaking, while the ice cream survives the dry ice quite well. It’s seriously creamy, and chock full of flavor. Best part is their sandwiches never seem to smush and ooze out, but that might be because I eat them so fast. At $5 each, this might fall under the splurge category, but if you want something more than soft serve in a cone, you should definitely seek these out.
