My husband bought ice cream sandwiches by Julie’s the other week and raved about how good they were for a few days before realizing they were, gasp, gluten free. Even though he denies it, the words ‘gluten free’ usually translates directly to “so disgusting I’d rather eat ripe dirt” so the fact he had been eating and enjoying GF food was quite a shock…to both of us. It looks like Julie’s partnered with Glutenfreeda to make these ice cream sandwiches which so captivated my gluten-lovin’ husband. The kids tried them and of course, also thought they were yummy. As for me, I had to try them once I found out their GF status, and they are good, but the ice cream is real ice cream which is not my favorite thing. Dairy and I have a love/hate relationship and I generally avoid it unless I take a lot of enzymes, which I prefer to do for cheese rather than ice cream. And these sandwiches have a lot of ice cream. If it were up to me I’d halve the ice cream bit, but I also would rather eat ice cream made out of coconut milk like Coconut Bliss so my opinion might not be the most important in this GF review. My husband decided it was the fact that the cookie parts of the sandwich stayed crisp that made it so good. Apparently he’d had bad experiences with mushy cookie ends before that left him thoroughly impressed with Julie’s. Perhaps this means there is hope yet that I’ll be making just one meal for the whole family one day. Maybe.
