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?

If you can't buy them, make them. I love to make homemade icecream sandwiches! Well, almost homemade, more like home assembled. Get any cookie dough from the refrigerator section. Slice and bake. After they cool, add a large scoop of any flavor ice cream inbetween two cookies. Wrap in saran wrap and press down to ensure the icecream hits the edges of the cookies. Place in the freezer unti ready. You can get really creative!

It's possible I've never noticed (in that section the only thing I'm ever looking for is Jus-Roll Puff Pastry) but "cookie dough" and "UK supermarkets" don't seem to go together very well.

Re: ice cream sandwiches
You can't generally buy cookie dough from the freezer section of UK supermarkets. There isn't a tradition here of eating raw cookie dough as a foodstuff or garnish to (eg) ice cream. If I want cookies, I make them from scratch at home - but the UK has a huge range of sweet biscuits, which are generally preferred to cookies, except in the context of US-style coffee shops.
