Meet Melt: Classic

Every once and awhile we like to highlight some of the exciting things we’re doing at Melt Bakery—whether it’s events, new flavors, or new store openings. But we wanted to step back a bit and give you a look behind the curtain.

Kareem and I (Julian) are the stars behind Melt Bakery and have been making these delicious ice cream sams for seven years now. And Melt has grown from a small storefront to a city-wide sensation in that time! Melt couldn’t have done it without its co-founders, and of course our ice cream-loving fans. 

But the real stars at here at Melt Bakery? The sandwiches! And we wanted to shed a little more light on one of our favorites—the Classic.


So, what’s the Classic ice cream sandwich all about? Well, it was the first concoction we ever came up with, and it’s one of our best sellers! Combining chocolate chip walnut cookies and classic vanilla ice cream, this sam is an essential flavor in our ice cream sandwich arsenal. Some interesting ingredients in this delicious treat are Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla for a rich sweetness and walnuts for a much-needed crunch. 

And why’s it so special? Because it’s a recipe that comes from our childhood! The cookies come from our mom’s family recipe, and the ice cream is a reincarnation of our favorite frozen custard recipe growing up. We value family here at Melt, and this sandwich brings us back to our roots. It holds a special place in our hearts, and we truly love this tasty little guy.

Now I’m sure you’re dying to know—how can you get your hands on one of these deliciously decadent treats? Well, you’ve got options! 

Stop by one of our two stores—our flagship location on Orchard Street in lower Manhattan, or our new location in Dumbo on Front Street. 

If you’re a bit too far to make it down to one of our locations, don’t panic! Stop by one of our carts around the city. You can find us at the High Line (on 15th and 30th street), at Washington Square Park, and at Urbanspace Garment District! You’ve got sugar cravings, and we’ve got the ice cream to satisfy them.

We also offer delivery up to 96th street in Manhattan! Because sometimes getting out of bed sounds like the worst idea in the world—don’t worry, we get it! 

You can also order delivery through one of our partners which includes Postmates, UberEATS, and GrubHub

Another option is sending gifts! We do longer distance deliveries too. If you meet the delivery minimum, we can send these succulent sams to your door!
