New York: The ice cream sandwich is making a comeback in shops and artisans are looking at them as a new vehicle for growth and experimentation.

Nowadays, ice cream companies are using organic, locally sourced or natural ingredients to make new combinations, the New York Daily News reported.

Ron Tanner , a vice president at the Specialty Food Association, said that there has been a lot of creativity in the ice cream market in the past decade, and that it is just starting with sandwiches.

He asserted that flavorwise there was a lot going on with sweet and salty combinations for ice cream sandwiches.
