A National Ice Cream Sandwich Day Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

ice cream sandwich day

The ice cream sandwich ranks as the second best-selling ice cream novelty in America. The average number of ice cream sandwiches eaten per second nationally is 48. Versions of the ice cream sandwich have been around since the turn of the twentieth century with the rectangular shaped cookies and vanilla ice cream sandwich being introduced in 1945

The cookie and ice cream combination
Has been a long-time sensation.
The frozen novelty treat
Can not be beat….
And now there’s an Ice Cream Sandwich Day celebration.

A National Fortune Cookie Day Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

fortune cookie
“A fortune cookie is a crisp and sugary cookie wafer usually made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil with a piece of paper inside, a “fortune”, usually an aphorism, or a vague prophecy.” Like, “If you eat too many hot dogs on National Hot Dog Day expect digestive distress.” Actually, they don’t give advice as good as that.
