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 suspect ice cream was only on a Sunday in the summer, up to say 1975 (when we moved from West Bridgford), maybe 1977. Mostly it was (Coop, occasionally Bird's) custard, made from powder; if not custard then cream off the top of the milk. Someone would run out with a single bowl, and get a couple of servings of ice cream. Timing was clearly crucial.

I can remember someone refusing Neapolitan because he'd never had it before and therefore wouldn't like it. Otherwise it would have been tubs of vanilla or raspberry ripple, or long blocks from Walls, oddly yellow.
