I dig the WU-Tang reference, in this case it stands for Cookies Rule Everything Around Me. I’m a fan of the concept as well. Who doesn’t love ice cream sandwiches? Plus you can mix and match cookies, which they have a wide variety of, like chocolate chip, red velvet, white chocolate macadamia nut, and turtle.
I opted for chocolate chip cookies with chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. They warm up the cookies to make them soft and pliable. It also softens up the ice cream, making it messy to eat. Ice cream will shoot out the back of the sandwich when taking a bite and tends to drip everywhere. Keep your sandwich close and your napkins closer.
The cookies were pretty good — soft chewy, but very thin. The ice cream was creamy and sweet, but nothing that really distinguishes it from other brands. It’s a decent product where the draw is the customization of your ice cream sandwich. If I come back I’d probably enjoy it more if I eat the ice cream and cookies separately. The sandwiches may be all the rage these days (as you see them in restaurants more frequently), but I prefer the old fashioned way to eat ice cream.
Lines at this Downtown Summerlin outpost can be long but it goes fairly quickly. Originally out of Berkeley, California, they’re quickly expanding their franchise with locations throughout the golden state and now two in Nevada. While their flavors aren’t as challenging to the palate as other ice cream or gelato shops around town kids will love this place.
