Toronto’s new ice cream sandwich shop is already completely sold out

If you’re looking for more than just a store-bought ice cream sandwich, there’s a new bakery in Toronto that’s turning this popular summer dessert into a work of art.

Earnie’s Icebox is an artisanal ice cream sandwich company that specializes in seasonal flavors and other tasty treats.

The company was born out of lockdown when owner and founder Julia Haist quit her job to focus full-time on creating ice cream sandwiches.

“I’ve had a few experiences where I went for an ice cream sandwich and ended up not having quite the experience I wanted. I’ve seen so many people start their own food business local and I’ve always loved making food, so I was kind of cool to do something like that. Ice cream sandwiches are a great vehicle for creativity,” Haist told blogTO.

Haist’s ice cream sandwiches are significantly thicker and richer than the average sando, and the cookies and ice cream used for the sandwiches are made from scratch. The whole process can take up to three days.

Some notable flavors include Coconut Pie, Strawberry Rhubarb, Peanut Butter & Jam, and Black Forest. Each bite has a perfectly balanced cookie to ice cream ratio, with nothing slipping or falling as you go.

So far they have gained a following of repeat customers, many of whom turned out in droves on opening day and bought all of the store’s weekend supply.

You can find Earnie’s cooler at 403 Jane Street.
