WAFERS, SICILIAN STYLE

Who remembers "wafers", then?  This is what the British called ice cream sandwiches until the end of the 1960s and I did read that they were making a comeback.  Whether that is true or not, I can tell you that "wafers" are alive and well in Sicily and, the sunshine having returned to us, Mr Fargione was busy making these for the hordes of children he was expecting to stop by his bar when school finished at 1pm today:

I resisted, Jan, but I bet they do. My thought excatly, Rosaria. Hi, LindyLouMac. They just seemed to disappear at the end of my teens.

I was never very fond of Wafers, but those look absolutely unmissable!
