Its not as exciting as a dipped cone, but a DQ Sandwich is a lot tidier to eat in the car.
  • It's not as exciting as a dipped cone, but a DQ Sandwich is a lot tidier to eat in the car.
I haven't eaten one in, maybe, decades, so I was surprised to learn that Dairy Queen is still selling the round "DQ Sandwich," one of its few ice-cream products — like the Dilly Bar — that date back to the 1950s. It's also one of the fast-food chain's cheaper ice-cream treats, selling for about $1.15.

Although there are reports of ice-cream-sandwich confections — a rectangle of vanilla ice cream between two pastry wafers — dating back to the 1890s, the first ice-cream-sandwich-making machine was patented in 1926. It has always been a popular treat with parents, because the neat sandwich shape is less messy to eat than an ice-cream cone.

The most glamorous ice-cream sandwich in the city may be the ice-cream-and-cookie sandwich sold at Murray's Ice Cream and Cookies at 4120 Pennsylvania in Westport. It sells for $4.91, including tax.

And where do you, Fat City readers, go for an ice-cream sandwich?
