Jamie Mac’s “Ice Cream Sandwich It” Rankings

We just “Ice Cream Sandwich’d” Twinkies and Suzie Qs… Read the review and watch the video.  

I might be a genius, or I might just have a “bit” of a sweet tooth.  Regardless, I stumbled across a culinary delight the other night while enjoying a couple of Little Debbie Zebra Cakes. 

So there I was devouring a couple of delicious Zebra Cakes when all of a sudden I had an epiphany… what if I put some Central Dairy Vanilla Ice Cream in between two Zebra Cakes? (Insert a light bulb above me head)

The result: A life-altering moment of innovation that can only be compared to something like a person landing on the moon for the first time. It’s “possible” that I’m exaggerating a bit, but it was pretty darn amazing. 

After this moment of brilliance, I then wondered what other delicious delectable treats from the makers of Hostess and Little Debbie would taste good as an ice cream sandwich, so here we are today.  

Over the next couple of weeks/years, I plan to embark on a journey (around local mid-Missouri grocery/convenience stores) to rank the best combinations of snack cakes/ice cream this world has to offer. 

Ice Cream Sandwich It (Official Rankings):

Zebra Cake Ice Cream Sandwich – 9.8 

  • An incredible mixture of cake, icing and ice cream. I now wonder how it would taste if I deep fried it. Will say it’s even better when you slice a single cake in half instead of squishing two together. 

Hostess Cupcake Ice Cream Sandwich – 7

  • Honestly, I had high expectations for this one because Hostess Cupcakes are one of my favorite sweet treats, but the whip cream threw off the consistency and taste.


Hostess Twinkie Ice Cream Sandwich – 9

Pretty solid. Twinkie’s aren’t on my list of go-to snack cakes, which means I’d never turn one down, but I also wouldn’t go to the store to buy one. Though, I might now. They have the perfect amount of ice cream filling to make a solid ice cream sandwich. 

Suzie Q Ice Cream Sandwich – 9.3

Pleasantly surprised. I love Suzie Qs, but I thought with the amount of cream filling it would be a similar issue as with Hostess Cupcakes, where it was just overpowering. Drawback to the Suzie Q Ice Cream Sandwich is it does get pretty messy. 

Nutty Buddy Ice Cream Sandwich – 9.9

This was the perfect combination of peanut butter, chocolate, ice cream and flaky wafers. Honestly, I never thought I would enjoy an Ice Cream Sandwich more than the Zebra Cake, but I’ve found a new love. Her name is Nutty Buddy. Would recommend splitting the single Nutty Buddy bar in two for consistency.
