Back in July of last year we ran a small story on Coolhaus, a startup company that had started selling gourmet ice cream sandwiches via food trucks, food carts and even a few storefronts. Since launching at the Coachella Music Festival in April of 2009, over 4 years ago, we’d only read about the phenomenon. That is until we stumbled upon some of their prepackaged sandwiches in our local Earth Fare. The Renzo Apple Pie-ano seemed like the perfect place to start.
For this flavor Coolhaus takes two oatmeal raisin cookies and stuffs a substantial scoop of baked apple ice cream. Following our first bite, the 470 calories per sandwich seemed like a small price to pay. The soft, moist oatmeal raisin cookies were good enough to receive praise all on their own, but once they were paired with cool, baked apple ice cream, an elite level was reached.
If you enjoy mix-ins with your ice cream, and even more so if you like apple-themed desserts, it doesn't get much better than this ice cream sammie. While companies like Three Twins have showed us the capability of pre-packaged sandwiches, Coolhaus took things up a notch. We seriously suggest picking up a few of these if you have access.
