You know we like to follow the Disney food trends here on Disney Food Blog, and one that we’re noticing more and more are the “dessert sandwiches” that keep popping up.

Of course, Disney has seemingly always offered the beloved Carrot Cake Cookie and Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich, and now there are a few more options. Let’s take a look at some old and new favorites!

Mickey's ice cream sandwich

To create this (admittedly quite large) snack, Cookies and Cream ice cream is sandwiched between two chocolate wafers. The texture of the wafers is similar to a typical ice cream sandwich, but they’re a little crispier (no sogginess here!) like actual cookies.

Hello, Mickey!

The different textures of the ice cream and the cookies makes this a [Read more…]
