Contributor's comments: In Tasmania and Victoria an Eskimo Pie has always been a vanilla icecream surrounded by chocolate. The ice confection described as vanilla ice cream between two wafer biscuits has only ever been known as a Cream Between and was made by Peters Ice Cream in Tasmania.

Somehow they always seemed a little stale.
