Review: Carl's Jr. - Hand-Scooped Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich

Carl's Jr.'s Hand-Scooped Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich features a scoop of vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two Otis Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies for $1.69 a pop.

They're also available at Carl's Jr. sister chain, Hardee's.

My old apartment complex used to bake Otis Spunkmeyer cookies daily and put them out in the leasing office. They were warm, soft, and delicious. Even the UPS guy would stop by for some!

This was not as good. Probably because they weren't so fresh and were a little hard as a result. Tastewise, they were nice enough; there's that brown sugar flavor and decent-sized chocolate chips.

The ice cream was just the right firmness, but still cold enough that it barely melted during the short drive home. The flavor however, was a pretty average vanilla; it wasn't particularly creamy and the vanilla note was fairly weak.

The firmness of the chocolate chip cookies tended to push the ice cream out when I bit into it. I ended up just eating the ice cream at the edges to keep it from falling out and my last few bites were mostly just cookie.

Overall, Carl's Jr Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich was decent but not great. A softer, fresher cookie would have improve the experience immensely. The chocolate chips cookies were okay, but I prefer the Oreo version better.
