You know and love the Coolhaus ice cream truck, so being able to find pints of goodness in your local supermarket makes life sweet.

Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich from Brother’s Desserts
The newest treat from one of the longest running independent ice cream makers in Southern California is this brownie ice cream sandwich.

Daiya Foods Dessert Bars
If you or your little people can’t do dairy, the new dessert bars from Daiya foods might be just the thing for a hot summer day.

Available at local retailers nationwide, prices vary.
Triple Chocolate Cookie from Michel et Augustin
The French cookie company is launching a new triple chocolate cookie just in time for summer.

Available at Amazon, $27 for an 18-pack.
