Hannah Pollack and Xavier Meers both saw great success in the culinary world prior to opening Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches. However, they both couldn’t quite shake the desire to follow their own personal passions. Sharing a mutual love of a good old-fashioned ice cream sandwich, the pair decided to pool their talents and put an adult spin on the kiddie menu classic with their own catering company. Now, you’ll spot Nightingale carts popping up at events across the Richmond, VA area dishing out these sweet treats.
Everything here comes homemade, right down to the brown sugar. The ice cream is all-natural, free of artificial ingredients that dilute the flavor and provide an acerbic aftertaste. Each and every ice cream sandwich has its own meticulously crafted flavor profile. You can grab a veritable classic, like vanilla ice cream squashed between chocolate brownie cookies. Or, you could grab something more gourmet. Try some citrusy goodness with orange ice cream seasoned with zest and marmalade served between two brown sugar cookies. Go for some tropical flare with two sugar cookies sandwiching pineapple-coconut ice cream. There are many other delicious options, so you’ll definitely want to try them all yourself. Make sure to stop by Nightingale Ice Cream Sandwiches the next time you spot them at an event. Or, even better, book ‘em for your own get-together. You won’t regret it.
