The Best Store-Bought Ice Cream Desserts For Summer

With the advent of summer comes a lack of real estate in our freezers, as boxes of ice cream treats make their annual pilgrimage into our homes. It's easy to grab the tried and true classics when you're purveying the frozen food aisle -- black-and-white ice cream sandwiches, chocolate-covered ice cream bars and drumstick cones. But if you're feeling a little more adventurous this summer, we've got something just for you.

Our editors rounded up the most impressive looking frozen treats, tasting each one and ranking them to find the best. We found a few duds (not a fan of the chocolate-covered frozen bananas), but we were pleasantly surprised by a handful of desserts that we're looking forward to eating all summer long. Among the top five are two candy bar-inspired desserts and three ice cream sandwiches that will knock your socks off. Keep your eye out for them.

Check out the slideshow below to see our five favorite frozen treats.
