Yes, it was called a Cool-A-Coo! Two oatmeal cookies with vanilla ice cream and coated with chocolate. They were my favorites in college and when I lived in LA. I just searched this site and this is the one and only reference.
Cool-A-Coos were awesome, much better than the San Francisco version which is still available, the It's It. Coos were bigger and tastier and more pristine. We had direct comparisons every year in college when we drove up to the annual USC game in the Bay Area against Cal or Stanford. My friends and I would sample It's It and laugh at how inferior they were to the great Cool-A-Coo.
Coos were sold in grocery stores in boxes of 3. I'd load up my freezer. They were also sold individually at convenience stores like 7-11 and Arco gas stations. They were best known at Dodger games. I first discovered them at USC basketball games at the Sports Arena, when Ricky the smiling vendor would throw them to you and never miss.
Unfortunately, and unbelievably, Cool-A-Coo went out of business a few years ago.
