Just thinking. In the USA cookies/biscuits are crumbled and crushed and mixed with ice cream. Cookies And Cream and similar types are extremely popular flavors at the grocers and shops. We are the co-owners of an ice cream shop in Asheville, North Carolina called The Hop. The number one most requested and biggest selling ice cream flavor is called Mocha Oreo, a blend of coffee and crushed chocolate cookies with a white creamy filling between them. It has been written that in the UK, Oreos are the only American cookie sold. Maybe you have tried them, but they are not our own personal favorite by a long shot. Home made cookies take that honor. But back to the ice cream.
Our son and his wife are our partners and they run the ice cream shop. Daughter in law Ashley makes all the ice cream herself, tweaking the recipes and experimenting with interesting flavor combinations. In the fall, pumpkin ice cream is a big seller. She even has made beer ice cream, using a distilled syrup from a local brewery in town. I suppose if you add enough sugar to anything…. well, it is very popular. The ice cream machine is our most important piece of equipment. It makes five gallons at a time, filling two tubs that are placed into a larger freezer to harden before being hand dipped for the buying public.
Are the British biscuits ever mixed with ice cream, commercially or in homes? Just wondering.
