A part of you (likely your inner child) really wants to try this.

Carl’s Jr. has unveiled the latest in fast food desserts: the Ding Dong ice cream sandwich. The Ding Dong, in case your memory of specific junk foods is hazy, is that round chocolate cake with a cream filling. Hostess with ice cream — why didn’t we think of that?

Carl’s Jr. uses “premium, hand-scooped vanilla ice cream” to make the Ding Dong sandwich.

“We’ve introduced some pretty imaginative creations using the real vanilla ice cream that we scoop out of tubs by hand,” said Brad Haley, chief marketing officer of Carl’s Jr. “It’s pretty fun to dream up new ones that no one has thought of before. After looking at many other options, Hostess’ iconic Ding Dongs, with their chocolate-coated, cream-filled cakes, made the most delicious ‘carrier’ for our latest ice cream sandwich. The result is a creamy, cool new spin on a classic American treat, and the perfect way to top off a Most American Thickburger in the hot summer months ahead.”
