The Beracha on Ice Cream Sandwiches

The Beracha on Ice Cream Sandwiches
Day: Wednesday
Date: June 22, 2016
Parshat: Biha'aloticha
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 212

In memory of Hannah bat Shelomo.

The beracha on ice cream sandwiches depends on the intent of the one eating the sandwich. One who has no specific desire to eat the cookie part of the sandwich and is only eating the cookies because they're there or to keep his hands clean says shehakol on the ice cream and no separate beracha on the sandwich part. However, if he specifically wants the cookie part and the ice cream is there to compliment that part, he should say mezonot on the cookies and no separate beracha on the ice cream. If he wants to eat the cookie and ice cream parts separately he may say mezonot on the cookie first and afterward say shehakol on the ice cream. It is important to know what the cookie part is made of since if it was made from potato or corn starch the beracha is shehakol regardless.
