Speaking of the chronic, I've been hooked on a habit lately that's just as addicting. The ice cream sandwich habit. Unlike ones we enjoyed as a kid, these megatrons are not from the freezer aisle and not for the faint of heart. We've been trucking over to Pokey O's almost every Sunday night to get our fix. I love that they're open fairly late on Sunday (10 pm!) so I can still make a run for it when the little devil on my shoulder says its go time after dinner.
You don't know how to make a Pokey O's ice cream sandwich? For real? You're killin me, smalls. Here's a step by step, Sandlot style.
First, you take the cookie. Pokey O's keeps a good selection of cookie types handy, but I obviously stick to the gluten-free. Which is no problem at all when it is the perfect textured fluff with a crispy outside, chocolate chunks and pecans.
Next, you take your ice cream. You put the ice cream between the cookies. (Actually a friendly Pokey O's team member does, but the added description didn't quite fit my Sandlot reference.)
Lots of gluten-free flavors, all that Blue Bell creamy consistency us Texans know and love.
The end result: kryptonite for the Sunday evening blues. And not a bit of gluten from here to next week.
So, there you have it. A short post today but I think you gained a lot: the secret to Dallas' best gluten-free ice cream sandwich, plus Next Episode and Sandlot references. Not bad for a Monday afternoon, right?
What's your favorite frozen treat?
Are you a Sunday night snacker like me?
