This week has been sweet.
Sweeter than usual. There is a trail in the carpet between Skaters room and the freezer. Last week I won a prize. Even sweeter I really had no inclination I was in the running. I answered a question on twitter. Apparently it was a competition and no one was more surprised when they won, than me. I am not accustomed to winning things and I have now decided that I genuinely like it. Especially when it is 100 Pat and Stick’s ice cream sandwiches!.
Do you know anything about Pat and Sticks Ice cream? I think you might want to know.
These two Sydney friends were chatting about ice cream one day a few years back… and agreed that there was not much on sale that was really good. After a little tinkering with the home Breville ice cream machine they decided that maybe an ice cream sandwich was the way to go. They started by selling at markets and have gradually got themselves stockists all the way up and down the East coast . The ice cream is still largely made by hand by Pat and Stick them selves, in a small facility in Sydneys inner west.
One thing is for sure. These ice cream sandwiches are made with beautiful quality ingredients. We have marvelled at the crunchy biscuits that sandwich rich creamy ice cream in vanilla, caramel, strawberry and chocolate. There are lace biscuits , very similar to brandy snaps hugging the vanilla and espresso ice creams. The biscuits are crunchy and taste fresh baked.
Each week there is a ritual of making biscuit dough one day, custard for ice creams the next. One day is for churning and shaping and another for baking the cookies. The factory is open to the public. So go and have a look your self. Don’t expect a big shiny showroom, just a down to earth factory shop that they share with Pepe Sayer Butter . I love the whole idea of being able to eat an ice cream wrapped in a crunchy cookie ………they are just oozey finger lickin’ good.
What did you say?? My favourite??…….Yeah that would be caramel with a crunchy biscuit studded with pecan pieces. They retail for around $5.00 each, about $1.50 more than a fully processed type of ice cream on a stick. No competition.
