Everyone make way! Chips Ahoy is here to stir up some competition this holiday season with the new Chips Ahoy Ice Cream Sandwich Maker. Every year, it seems we are inundated with fun, new gift sets from brands like Oreo, Coca-Cola, and more. Last year’s hot item was the Oreo Ultimate Dunking Set, but this year I think Chips Ahoy is coming to steal the spotlight.
Now, I have read that this product will drop at Walmart on November 1, but there are Big Lots locations currently carrying it. For the reasonable price of $12 (at Big Lots) you will walk away with all of the tools you need, besides the ice cream, to create the perfect ice cream sandwich.
Inside this kit you will find:
- 1 ice cream scoop
- 1 sandwich mold
- Chips Ahoy cookies
- 1 sprinkle tray
- a bag of sprinkles
I’m not sure if I was more excited about the ice cream sandwich maker itself or all of the possible flavor combinations I could create with it. Nevertheless, I picked up some ice cream, more sprinkles, and a pack of Chewy Chips Ahoy before heading home.
Between the various types of Chips Ahoy cookies and countless ice cream flavor options, the possibilities are endless. I prefer the Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies over the original, so of course I had to buy them. The hardest decision of this entire process is picking out the ice cream to put in the center. I decided to try out Mint Chocolate Chip and Cookies & Cream for this first attempt.
The ice cream sandwich making process is simple. As the box states, “Scoop, Layer, Press, Roll [and] Enjoy!” I do recommend waiting until the ice cream is completely frozen, because my ice cream had begun to thaw while making the sandwich, leading to some ice cream dripping on the counter and floors as I hustled to eat it. Otherwise, I love how easy it was to create a custom ice cream sandwich at home.
Overall, the Chips Ahoy Ice Cream Sandwich Maker will make for an entertaining gift this season. Whether by yourself, with friends or family, this provides a fun activity for all to participate. Make sure to stay on the lookout for the Chips Ahoy Ice Cream Sandwich Maker as it rolls out in stores on November 1.
