REVIEW: New Orleans Ice Cream Co. Po’Boy Ice Cream Sandwich - Creole Cream Cheese and Vanilla Bean

On August 10th, 2012, we opened our first pint from New Orleans Ice Cream Company. The owner had reached out to us and we had agreed to work together. My team and I would taste test and provide unbiased reviews and in return New Orleans Ice Cream Co. would gain some publicity. Since then, we've reviewed dozens of their different products, including the best ice cream we've had to date: New Orleans Ice Cream Co. Café au Lait & Beignets. Fast forward nearly four years and we're still partnering up. This time for a new novelty item this creative company has brought to consumers. Always paying homage to their hometown, New Orleans Ice Cream Co. now brings us Po'Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches.


The official description reads, "Fresh baked chocolate cookies stuffed with New Orleans all natural ultra premium ice cream, hand dipped in rich, indulgent milk chocolate," and they come in two fantastic flavors: Vanilla Bean and another one of my personal favorites, Creole Cream Cheese.


The first individually wrapped ice cream sandwich we tore into was of the Vanilla Bean variety. Taking a traditional approach to the classic ice cream sandwich, New Orleans Ice Cream Co. added a bit of their own lagniappe. As we do with most novelty items, we took a knife right to the center so we could get a nice dissected view of all the different layers. The beauty of any ice cream sandwich are all the different tastes and textures you get in each bite. In this case, the "ultra" premium Vanilla Bean as the filler, two soft, chewy chocolate cookies surrounding those, and then the whole thing is dipped in a thick, crunchy coating of milk chocolate. When you think about the ideal ice cream sandwich, this is what you should be thinking of. Top quality ingredients, bold flavors, and a great feel. This is an easy A and looking forward to the Creole Cream Cheese version, should get even better.


Grade: A


The very first time that we received products from New Orleans Ice Cream Company, Creole Cream Cheese immediately became one of our favorites. Described as a local delicacy, fresh farmers style cream cheese blended into our delicious ice cream, we couldn't imagine it getting much better. That was until you take that rich, flavorful ice cream and sandwich it between two of New Orleans Ice Cream decadent chocolate cookies, then add another layer of chocolate over everything. The combination of chocolate and cream cheese is something you traditionally see, but works brilliantly. Kudos to New Orleans Ice Cream Co. for bringing together all these ingredients together in one convenient package.


Grade: A

  1. This is a great place organize an event; they have great staff and great events put on here! I had nothing but great times and great conversations at venues in Atlanta. They served slider and shrimp cakes as appetizers with chicken skewers, and eggrolls that had veggies on the inside and some kind of creamy fruit sauce on top.
