Founded in 2010 in Wilmington, North Carolina, by husband and wife team Christian and Kelly Nye. Their gourmet renditions of this frozen treat evoke memories of simpler times when a trip to the ice cream parlor or a warm plate of cookies made everything better. Nye’s Cream Sandwiches specializes in exceptional ice cream sandwiches. Handcrafted with love in small batches from the finest ingredients, they guarantee a delicious taste of summer goodness any time of year.

About The Food

While all the gourmet buzzwords apply to Nye’s ice cream sandwiches (think “small batch,” “hand-crafted,” and “artisan”), what makes these desserts the real deal is simple. Chef Christian Nye relies on recipes he personally developed for each cookie and ice cream flavor they make. (And they happen to be amazing.) Nye’s does indeed make their ice cream sandwiches in small batches, scooping each cookie onto its baking sheet by hand and assembling, wrapping, and packaging every sandwich by hand and with love. They’ve created the “Wow” version of a classic American treat.

Meet The Owner

Christian Nye, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and his wife Kelly, came to the art and business of ice cream quite accidentally. After years of Christian being an executive chef, the couple set out in pursuit of Christian’s dream of opening his own restaurant. The menu was to include homemade ice cream sandwiches. Along the way the testing of ice cream sandwich combinations turned into hundreds of orders, a new path, and ultimately Nye’s Cream Sandwiches. “We shun trendy flavors and embrace classic American combinations like Apple Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, and Peppermint Chocolate.”
