Singaporean ice-cream sandwiches
In Singapore recently I had an interesting take on an ice cream sandwich. First, a very old man takes a block of ice cream (I chose mango, Jenn went with chocolate) from a freezer and hacks off the wrapping, leaving a very large block of ice cream. There are two choices from there--the block can be dressed in two thin wafers, or can be wrapped in a piece of multi-colored sliced bread.
The pictures don't really give a sense of how big these things were. They were a bit much, even for my big fat face.
(The wikipedia page on ice cream sandwiches contains an interesting list of regional variations.)
