Remember Kress 5 and dime store? They had the most scrumptious waffle ice cream, I loved it as a child. It was a vanilla square ice cream between crispy waffle on either side. A squared & cool treat to enjoy! I found an ice cream very similar to Kress'es waffle ice cream at Marukai Wholesale Mart. It's called Frozen Wafer Sandwich. The wafer similar to the waffle ice cream only it's thinner. A chocolate film to one side with creamy vanilla ice cream for a very tasty treat! Oops, chocolate film top & bottom. Costs 2.19 for a 5oz ice cream bar. I enjoy it. Sugar, 20g so, an indulgence.

Ice cream sandwiches were never a thing here when i was a child. So i never had those. The very first ice cream sandwich I tried was when I went to Singapore and bought it on the street. There was this street vendor and his cart who was selling it and a friend who worked there told me i should try it. Never tried the waffle one but the best ice cream sandwich I’ve had which i could easily get from the grocery store these days are those from Korea.

I see. This one from Japan. Kress was here on Oahu, when I was a child. Kress left island about 50 years ago. Glad you got to eat these types of ice cream!

This looks very delicious. I havent found one here unfortunately. I love wafer and I love vanilla. Is it possible to be available online or is a proper storage needed for it?

No, ice cream, not good to get online. When you go shopping, check for it. You know, I love ice cream sandwiches, but, stores that has it on sale, too far away. I carry an insulated bag with me when shopping for frozen or if I treat myself, like my Big Mac attack, . Don't ever get ice cream online.

I understand, for Kress left Oahu over 50 years ago, so young ones might not know it. Sorry.

The square waffle too & bottom is sit down cone flavor, vanilla ice cream makes the middle. It was 2" wide and 3" long and an inch thick.

I like to eat wafer ice cream also we have yam and chocolate flavor here.I like it a lot because it is different compare to the usual stick or cup ice cream.

Ok, Oahu island home, long ago when growing, over 50 yrs ago they had them. You might be too young for it?

We have something similar here although I haven't seen them for a while. They were called 'Giant Sandwich'.
