Back in May we were contacted by a company called Mad Minis. While we've had plenty of ice cream sandwiches on our blog before, this company had put a slight spin on things. Instead of full sized sandwiches, Mad Minis has introduced a smaller, more traditional looking sandwich cookie filled with ice cream. Not only are the cookies smaller than your standard ice cream sandwich, but they also come in at an incredibly low 60 calories each. As of right now Mad Minis are offered in Blondie, Black Raspberry, Chocolate and Vanilla.
Despite being frozen, these sandwich cookies manage to keep their chewy, flaky feel straight out of the freezer -- no thaw time required. Each bite brings together the soft sandwich cookie consistency you've grown to expect, but instead of the usual cream filling you'd find with a non-frozen variety, you get a cool infusion of ice cream. The result is one of the better novelty ice cream items we've tested.
All four flavors were impressive in their own regard, and while I gravitated towards the Black Raspberry and Blondie variety, some of my other tasters leaned towards the classic Chocolate or Vanilla. Regardless of the box you choose, we doubt you'll be disappointed!
