Those ice cream sandwiches are seriously making me hungry right. They look so sweet and very tasty. You should send a couple my way. hahahah I kid. But those are seriously the BEST ice cream sandwiches I've ever seen. Hey, btw, you should check out Schlotzsky's sweepstakes. I'm currently working for them and they're giving away some cool prizes, like personalized mini-bats and even a Grand Prize trip to St. Louis sometime in July. I just thought I'd give you a heads up. You should definitely sign up and increase your chances of winning.
