It's no secret that I love ice cream sandwiches. Very, very, very much. While it's my mission to "discover a new taste" all over the city, I must admit, I spend most of that time looking for new, cool ice cream concoctions. And when I do this, I usually end up at OddFellows.
OddFellows is one of those places that truly makes ice cream an art. They have an extensive list of unique homemade ice cream flavors (think burnt honey rosemary and black pepper strawberry) and they are always inventing original creations like their new ice cream sandwiches. If you're thinking "ice cream sandwich" and you're picturing 2 chocolate rectangular wafers stuffed with vanilla ice cream, get that image out of your head. OddFellows puts that and any other ice cream sandwich to shame. Their menu consists of gourmet, melty brioche ice cream "odd pockets," signature s'mores and classic sandwiches and the option to make your own with their homemade cookies and toppings. Of course, the minute I found out about this new ice cream sandwich menu, I went into the East Village shop to taste some. By some, I mean 6. By 6, I mean you should never ever eat that many ice cream sandwiches in one sitting because you may fall unconscious. Luckily, I didn't.
Smoked marshmallow ice cream, marshmallow sauce, graham soil and chocolate
Vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate wafer, salted caramel and hazelnut
Brioche "Odd Pockets"
There are four brioche sandwiches on the menu. The ones I did not try are the cornbread sandwich with cornbread ice cream, cornflake crunch and blueberry compote and the maple bacon sandwich with bacon ice cream, candied pecans and spiced maple syrup. I tried the brown butter sage and the chocolate chunk, as you shall see below.
