FatBoy has been a favorite brand in this household for as long as I can remember. There are ice cream sandwiches, and then there are FatBoy ice cream sandwiches. They are the original “old school cool.” Also, they have HISTORY! FatBoy has been around for a long time – since 1925 – and they have been putting other ice cream sandwiches to shame for decades. It’s because they’re “ginormous” and even Des uses that name to describe them. You see why they’re called “FatBoy, right?”
Now, have you ever heard of a “FatterBoy?” Bear with me, because if this is your first time hearing about FatBoys, you’re in for a treat, two times over! FatterBoys are somewhat amazing. You see, FatBoy ice cream sandwiches are amazing in their own right, right? Right. Well FatterBoys are what you make when you take your FatBoy ice cream sandwiches to the next level. Make no mistake – FatBoys stand tall and proud (and thick) all on their own, but sometimes it’s fun to experiment.
This is my way to make easy and special ice cream sandwiches. As you probably know, we have birthday central all summer long around here. The best thing I do, according to my kids, is to go to Sam’s Club for a few boxes of FatBoy ice cream sandwiches and then take them to the next level. The best news is that kids can help. All you do is buy your favorite sprinkles (rainbow for us), put a pile of your sprinkles on a flat surface, and then dip all four sides of your ice cream sandwiches into the sprinkles. This favorite party recipe only takes two ingredients, and it’s the epitome of summer fun!
So let’s talk more about FatBoy! They’re All-American (since 1925), nostalgic and incredibly versatile, as you can see above. In their case, Fat is a compliment to them because their real, delicious ice cream is too big to big contained in a skinny ice cream sandwich or a flimsy scoop! It’s been their name for over 90 years, and they aren’t changing it! Also, the bigger the ice cream, the more smiles, right? So this is all about more “bang for your buck.” There’s a lot of ice cream in that box!
Not only that, there’s a Fat lineup of flavors, including S’mores, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, and even a stereotype-busting original vanilla flavor too. I’ve had it a lot – there’s nothing “boring” about this vanilla ice cream!
So what do you think? Are you ready to explore FatBoy? What would you do to make a FatterBoy? Are sprinkles king for you, or would you try something else? There are a lot of options! You could dip the sides in chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips. Or all of the above! You could dip your entire FatBoy into chocolate, and make it into an ice cream cake. The options are endless and amazing, but I’m partial to my own way of using sprinkles to dress them up into party treats!
