The berachah for an ice cream sandwich


[Please note, as always, that there are multiple views on this issue.]

If the cookie part of an ice cream sandwich is significant, such that some might choose to eat the cookie even if it were alone, then one may follow either of the following procedures vis-a-vis berachah:

1. Eat some of the cookie first, reciting Borei Minei Mezonot, and then have some of the ice cream, reciting Shehakol.


2. Eat the cookie with the ice cream, and recite only Shehakol.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 4:43)

Have a great day,
