Nye’s Cream Sandwiches are unique for several reasons. First, they are truly hand-crafted and made by people, not machines. They shun trendy flavors and embrace classic American combinations, such as Apple Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Peppermint Chocolate, Chocolate Pecan, Key Lime Pie and Coconut Chocolate. These tasty sandwich treats are portable and neat to eat. Each one is wrapped in parchment paper, which catches melting ice cream and keeps your fingers clean! The wrapping and consistent size/shape of the sandwiches means they can ship sandwiches where others are stuck serving messy sandwiches in paper boats with a spoon. Nye’s sandwiches are intended to evoke memories of simpler days gone by when a trip to the ice cream parlor or a warm plate of cookies made everything better. In short, they just want people to “Have a Nye’s Day!”

Notable Quotes

“Nice little market but the real draw for us is the Nye’s Cream scoop shop and ice cream sandwiches.  Don’t bother with the other ice cream on this little strip–Nye’s can’t be beat.  I especially enjoyed the combination of key lime/toasted coconut in a chocolate waffle cone—the waffle cone is included in the price!.”
” Don’t miss Robert’s Market when you visit Wilmington, NC. It’s a must for any visitor, if not for the Chicken Salad, then for the ice cream.” — Our State Magazine
“I just found their pimento cheese in a Charlotte Harris Teeter store.  OMG!  It is fabulous!  I come from Lexington, NC, and this one is the best I’ve ever had!  Plenty of pimentos!”
