Ice cream sandwiches

We started discussing ice cream sandwiches last night, apropos of the next Android OS. C. wasn't entirely sure what an ice cream sandwich even is.

Save me a potentially-fruitless trip to the grocery story, oh LJ: are ice cream sandwiches commercially available in the UK?

I remember something similar at the cinema (in the days when cinemas had intermissions) but it wasn't called an ice cream sandwich.

I wonder what it was called.

I think they used to be called either a ice-cream wafer or an eskimo sandwich. Unfortunately eskimo sandwich is now a band name and that overwhelms the google search.

Did manage to find this:

I think you are right. They used wafers rather than biscuits. There was definitely a preassembled packaged version.

Yup -- that's what I remember -- prepackaged rectangle wafers sort of like cheap ice-cream cone material and a flattened block of ice-cream between them about 2cm thick. Quite a challenge to eat one tidily actually.
