Yes, I’ve raved about Baked & Wired cupcakes before, but this review is about their (drum roll, please)… ICE CREAM COOKIE SANDWICHES! Or, rather, “ice cream sammies,” according to them. Thinking I would choose a unicorns and rainhoes cupcake, I decided to go to Baked & Wired on a sweltering day for a sweet pick-me-up. But when I saw the ice cream sammies, I was sold. They’re my favorite dessert ever and I consider myself quite the ice cream cookie sandwich connoisseur, so naturally, I had to get one here.
Name: Baked & Wired
Location: 1052 Thomas Jefferson St NW
Time: 3 pm on a Friday
Order: Bakedwich (Chocolate chip cookies and vanilla ice cream)
Review: OH MY GOODNESS. This was insane. The cookie came tightly-wrapped and perfectly chilled, so it wasn’t messy at first. But the second I got outside under the DC sun and started chowing down, I found myself fighting fate and the dripping of the creamy vanilla filling. The fresh chocolate chip cookies had a great flavor and were ideally chewy, while the ice cream was smooth and boasted the perfect consistency. I’m definitely getting another one once I’m back in Georgetown. This sammie is certainly giving Insomnia Cookies a run for its money. Plus, this one came decorated with chocolate chips on the outside trim of the ice cream. A+ for presentation.
