I scream, you scream, we all scream for an ice cream sandwich
Sometimes this job is tough. Like when your editor tells you to source the best ice cream sandwich in Sydney. Yep, researching and tasting ice cream sandwiches is a tough gig alright but someone’s got to do it. You can thank me later.
The white chocolate ice cream sandwich at 4Fourteen is a delicate dessert made with creamy ice cream, topped with dulce de leche. Thin toffee wafers make the top and bottom later of the sandwich. This bad boy will set you back $16. (See feature picture above).
