Being in-between is never really fun. But when it comes to ice cream, it’s a whole different story! Introducing six scoops that are good solo players, but even better as in-betweeners.
At Coolhaus, you can find various fun combinations of ice cream sandwich with their rather unusual ice cream flavors, such as olive oil, chicken and waffle(!), or pizza(!!!). Surprisingly, all of those bizarre-sounding flavors are found to be uniquely tasteful. Think about it: If you choose to make an ice cream sandwich with chicken and waffle ice cream and maple cookies, you will be served a perfect chicken and waffle ice cream sandwich!

2. Churro Borough
Choose your favorite from the variety of ice cream flavors. They will sandwich it between freshly fried churro disks. Ice cream starts melting upon receiving, but don’t worry. You will finish it far before it melts away. Spanish Latte, Spicy Hot Chocolate, and Blackberry Cheesecake flavors were uniquely tasteful, but you will find that it’s impossible to go wrong with any flavor when it is sandwiched between warm, crispy churros.
1726 N Vermont Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90027
You can find every imaginable American bites at MILK. However, the highlight of this place is their macaron ice cream sandwiches. Although you don’t get to choose your own combination, you will find their creative flavors, such as thai tea, jasmine, or fruit loops, fun and satisfying. You also will be surprised with the freshness of macarons that are soft and chewy at the same time. I mean, it’s a MACARON ICE CREAM SANDWICH. Do you need second thoughts?

4. B Sweet Dessert Bar
B Sweet is a dessert truck landed on Little Osaka. Warm bread pudding served with ice cream, “Sluttiest brownie” made with chocolate chip cookies, oreo, and marchemallow, and everything else served here are all calorie-worthy, but there is something more special hidden from the showcase: Halo, pressed doughnut ice cream sandwich. Halo is made fresh and warm (and cold) to your order, with your choice of ice cream flavor. Ube ice cream is a must-try!

5. Sprinkles Ice Cream
I know. It’s named as “Sprinkles sundae,” not “cupcake ice cream sandwich,” but what’s the point of argument when it tastes speechlessly good? Your choice of cupcake from Sprinkles is cut in half and ice cream is sandwiched between the cupcake. When it’s hard to make a decision, you can always make a safe choice of classic red velvet – red velvet combination. But be creative! Many of their ice cream flavors are worth trying.

6. Carmela Ice Cream
Located on W. 3rd St., Carmela is a local ice cream parlor serving hand-made artisan ice cream and sorbet. Among twelve rotating flavors, Lavender honey is a must-try – it delivers refreshing sensation that will wake up your taste buds. For those who find other places a bit too much, Carmela will offer you the right amount of sweetness: a small scoop of ice cream sandwiched between thinly baked cookies.
