    Because chocolate isn't hipster enough for your ice cream sandwich. Green tea it's more Hillary.

      Ice is more Hillary. Not so much cream. Just ice.. and an ice pick. Definitely more Hillary.

    I still would bite into them freshly made. I am honest.
    Also, I love ice cream sandwiches that are soft and spill over the edges. Because, where is the fun in ice cream, of you don't get your hands messy and sticky?

    • Nevermore

      Yeah, it would be great to visit the Good Humor factory and buy them freshly made. I bet they are really good instead of buying them from the store where they could be a week old already.

    Claire was just as prepared as I was for Brad to have SOME criticism, “I think that can be achieved if it sat over night.”
    I read the comments and some people like the banter but I find Brads execution of his critiques can usually come off pretentious and almost demeaning.
    He speaks like he knows she already didn’t do whatever he’s suggesting. It’s played off well but man during the hormonal week of the month I could see Claire ripping his head off and turning it into a fancy snack.
    “in this video I finally try out all of Brads critique advice, on HIM!”

    Also, anyone else cringe when she goes “ready? On three? Everyone?” & everyone’s reaction to it 😂

    Hi, I would love to work in that kitchen. I love to cook and experiment with different flavors and foods. No, I don't have any professional experience and I don't live in your state but I would definitely relocate to work there. It seems so much fun. Hire me, please. Thank you.

    I love the look of the perfectly cut rectangular sandwiches, but I'm lazy. I think I'm going to make the cookies, but cut out big circles and make ice cream sandwiches by plopping a scoop of ice cream in between them and smushing them together. Then I might consider letting them sit in the freezer to soak in the moisture as Claire has instructed, but there's a very good chance they'll never make it to that promised land.

    You need a lot of self control to do this. I would probably only do this once as a summer activity with my kids. Might be nice to teach the self control something that I think I don’t have too much of.
