Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Brands

Cookies and cream (also known as cookies ‘n cream) is commonly ranked as one of the favorite ice cream flavors ever. Generally, it is vanilla ice cream with chocolate sandwich cookies (Oreos or a similar cookie) crumbled into the vanilla.

Debatably, South Dakota State University stakes claim to inventing this amazing ice cream. According to the university website, the flavor was invented in 1979 by Shirley Seas, the dairy plant manager and students Joe Leedom and Joe Van Treeck.

The flavor was never patented according to SDSU, which has lead to some controversy on who really created it. The Argus Leader states Blue Bell advertises an “original” cookies and cream. Then you have Edy’s who indicates they invented it in 1982. To makes things more complicated, there are claims that the ice cream was invented in an Oregon mall and another theory that it all started somewhere in Massachusetts.

As you can see from the below list, there are now numerous cookies and cream brands, which should speak to the popularity of the flavor. Please comment below if you know of a brand not on the list and we will consider adding it. Additionally, we are interested in knowing your favorite cookies and cream brand. Comment if you have a favorite so that people can try it out if they haven’t already.
