Walk down Ossington any afternoon and you are bound to encounter a mysterious snaking line emerging from a rather nondescript space. Despite the fact that this is Toronto, not Reykjavik, locals have been queueing up Scandinavian style to get their grabby paws on this popular treat: Bang Bang’s ice cream sandwich.
Small batches of creamy goodness are turned out at this shop along with a roster of fresh-out-the-oven cookies, Hong Kong egg waffles and matcha chiffon cake — for those who really wish to step out of the box. Ice cream flavours are listed sky high and veer from the interesting (b'day cookie dough ice cream) to the completely unique (brown bread and beer). Match up with your sandwich-making device of choice and get prepared to swoon. The line? Yes, it’s worth the wait.
