The Dallas Observer called the ice cream sandwich “perhaps the most perfectly devised dessert ever created.” But apparently even perfection can be improved upon. “Pokey O’s has upped the ante,” the paper went on, in its explanation for bestowing this cookie and ice cream shop the honor of Best Food Orgasm in 2006. Pokey O’s puts a freshly baked spin on the iconic dessert sandwich by plopping a decadent scoop of Blue Bell Ice Cream, a treat rarely found on the West Coast, between two of their moist, chewy cookies. Customers can choose from more than 10 cookies, which range from such classics as chocolate chip and snickerdoodle to creative combinations of white chocolate and cranberry or maple and pecan. Once they’ve selected a cookie, the next step is to choose from 15 flavors of ice cream. Customers can also opt for cookies sans ice cream, which wash down perfectly with a thick, old-fashioned milkshake.
