The proper way to eat an ice cream brick

This has become an interesting talking point among gourmets.

A popular suggestion is to place the brick into a small bowl, peeling off the white paper wrapper and remembering to lick off any ice cream still sticking to it.

Then, you have to scrape off the ice cream with a spoon, and finish off by licking the bowl.

The other more modern option is to place the cream brick between two biscuits or two pieces of bread to make a cooling sandwich for a summer lunch.

Other unusual ways include dipping a brick into a glass of beer or cola or putting it inside a cake.
