In recent months, I have become a regular consumer of Hershey’s Ice Cream products. Hershey’s Ice Cream Company is not affiliated with Hershey’s Chocolate Company, although both companies regularly produce a wide range of sweet and tasty treats.
Last week, I purchased a Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie In A Cup and I’m very glad that I did so. Prior to purchasing this item, I also purchased and ate a Hershey’s Ice Cream Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup and I enjoyed it immensely. When I ate that sandwich, I thought it was the best – tasting ice cream sandwich I had ever eaten. Now, after eating the Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup, I have changed my mind. The cookies and cream variety is definitely the tastiest ice cream sandwich I have ever eaten.
Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is one food writer’s product review of Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup.
This ice cream cookie sandwich is fairly large in size. The net weight of the standard – sized Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup is 6.5 fluid ounces. One cookie / container counts as one serving. In physical size, the container measures roughly 3.5″ x 2.25″.
The regular retail price charged for one 6.5 fluid ounce container of Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup at Hartford, Connecticut convenience stores and food retailers ranges between $1.39 and $1.49. To me, this price seems very reasonable.
Consistency / Texture
This delectable ice cream cookie sandwich features several different and pleasing textures. Firstly, the chocolate cookie that sandwiches the ice cream resembles a giant version of a brand of chocolate sandwich cookie witha namethat begins with the letter O. The cookie offers a firm texture when first bitten – into, but seems to nicely soften – up as you eat it.
The vanilla ice cream in this sandwich is smooth and creamy, yet firm and a multitude of little chocolate chips decorate the outside of the ice cream.
All put together, these ingredients form a wonderful product that offers a very satisfying mouth – feel.

Taste / Flavor
This ice cream cookie sandwich tastes very good. Usually, I’m not a huge cookies and cream fan, but Hershey’s Icer Cream produces delicious cookies and cream flavored ice cream on a stick and now this sandwich, which I’m very fond of.
The combination of vanilla ice cream, chocolate cookie and chocolate chips in Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup is well – balanced and quite delicious. The item is sweet, but not overly – so and because it is so big, you can eat part of it, then save the remainder in the freezer.
Please be aware that it is very difficult to stop eating one of these ice cream sandwiches once you’ve started, because they are so tasty. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of 9.75.
Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup is packaged in a round, blue cardboard cup – like container. The front label features an illustration of the enclosed sandwich and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutrition information.
An interesting packaging feature with this product is the small hole that states ‘Press Here’ that is cut into the bottom of the container. When opening this item, the consumer is instructed to remove the lid,then turn the cup upside downandpush out center, which pops the large cookie out of the cup. This is a simple, yet highly – effective packaging detail.
Fantastic, delicious, flavorful, awesome..there are so many adjectives that I could use to describe Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup. If you enjoy eating extremely tasty chocolate and vanilla ice treats, look for this frozen treat at smaller grocery stores, pharmacies and convenience stores. Hershey’s Ice Cream Cookies and Cream Cookie in a Cup is highly recommended.
