Mill Ave. Ice Cream Sandwich Battle: Cookiez, Slickables, Sparky's

Cookiez on Mill, the original Mill Avenue ice cream and cookie joint.

​The Mill Avenue area surely must be approaching a critical mass of frozen dessert purveyors. As of a couple of weeks ago, on the short quarter-mile strip there are now six shops exclusively offering chilly sweets. Of the six, half of them offer hand-scooped ice cream sandwiched between fresh-baked cookies. 

With artisan ice cream shops around town offering them (resulting in a tasty summer battle), it looks like the humble ice cream sandwich will be this year's hot treat. But as we learned last time, the devil's in the details for such a simple treat. Who comes out on top in one crowded arena?

Can't wait to try out this new place!


Go, you'll love it. After hearing Mill was getting ANOTHER dessert place (still can't believe there's six in that one stretch!) I feared the worst, but they do a really bang-up job. Oh, and bonus at Slickables: They sell bags of the day-old cookies at four for a dollar.
