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?

Still available, truly. Look for bakers that claim to be selling real cream cream cakes.

I've been in those - all the ones I've tried in the last decade or most has had the wrong kind of cream. The fresh cream cakes tend to be different from choux buns. Where I've tried. Or my palette has shifted. (That's probably the wrong kind of palette. Taste buds thing)

(Shop ones are better, but the pastry's wrong... and the topping too sticky. Ideally the topping cracks)

Bakers are thin on the ground here - the decent one is more interested in teas (indeed selling tea and coffee beans) and stopped selling bread unless ordered; I will try The Custard Tart and Bensons.

The Rainham and WhistaBubble ones I tried were both confectionary cream, but there is another baker further along Oxford Street I tend to get to later.

The baker I want to call Bensons have them... Yum. Although I'm sure the chocolate covering was hard when I had them in the East Midlands.
