Klondike Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Maybe we shouldn't talk about what I would do for one of these Klondike bars!
I like to think I have a fairly decent sense of self control. I don't deny myself- but I also don't over indulge. There are however A few things out there that I really have to watch myself with because I WILL go through the entire package in an embarrassingly fast amount of time. These Oreo ice cream treats are at the top of that list.

The sandwiches are made up of Oreo cookie ice cream capped off my two Oreo wafers. If you are lucky the wafers are just slightly soft and the ice cream just a little melty- that combination of texture and flavors is sinfully good. Don't get me wrong they are still good if both the wafers or the ice creamer is firmer- I just happen to have a thing for when the wafer gets soft and almost crumbly.

To be honest I am not sure what makes these sandwiches so good. The ice cream is not the best, it's overly aerated and it is not the rich ice cream ever. The wafers if peeled off and eaten on they're own (um, not that I have done that or anything) have an almost oily taste- more like store brand Oreo's then "real" Oreo'. But somehow when you put the wafers and the ice cream together they are just addictive!

I love these! But. . . have they stopped making them. I used to buy them from my local large chain grocer and now they don't seem to be available at any of the large chain grocers in southern California. They have regular Klondike bars with oreo ice cream but not the oreo cookie-looking ones. Dreyers (I think) now has one that looks similar but the taste/texture is all wrong. I'm jonesing for these!!

NOOOOOOO please don't let that be true!

I sent off an email to the good folks at Unilever/Klondike asking for verification so as soon as I hear back I will update!

Have you tried Wal-mart at all? I live in Oregon and I remember getting them there last summer. I went today to see if they had them but they were out. They did still have a sticker for it though so I am hopeful. Haven't had one in awhile but I love them as well!
