Ice Cream Sundae Toppings

Unique Ice Cream Sundae Combinations

Most of us drive the same route to work. We get our hair cut the same way, week after week. We have the same thing for breakfast. We watch the same TV shows.

No more same old, same old! We’re looking at one of our favorite topics—ice cream—and thinking of ways to mix it up and add some pizzazz and extra flavor with some creative ice cream toppings. When it comes to this summery dessert, there’s no reason to take the same route. In honor of our National Night Out ice cream party giveaway, we’re trying a detour—a fun re-route for once—to unique sundae combinations that will take this sweet from tasty to doubly delicious.

Ice cream times two. The first unique sundae strategy is to use not one, but two—count them, two—different types of ice cream. Combinations of ice cream to order with your Minnesota groceries include, for example, a scoop of Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch with a scoop of Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Another delicious duo is Edy’s French Silk ice cream plus Caramel Delight. My final fun re-route is strawberry ice cream with a second flavor of vanilla Swiss almond. Doesn’t that sound delectable?

Two topping combos. You can also combine two toppings for twice the taste bud tantalization. Think of a new scenic route with pairings such as shredded coconut and pineapple. How about crushed ginger snap cookies and vanilla syrup? Another “must try” is hot fudge plus hunks of Kind Nuts & Spices: Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt. Or you can see what your taste buds think of the bacon craze with ice cream topped with bacon crumbles and maple syrup.

Ice cream-topping pairings. Other unique combinations are created by pairing particular ice cream and toppings for an exponentially exquisite experience. When you’re inputting your Twin Cities grocery delivery order, think about taking the side street of caramel ice cream topped with chocolate peanuts. Moose Tracks ice cream with Nutella is another meandering travel, as is strawberry ice cream sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs. You can even serve ice cream topped with more ice cream with Kemps Ittibitz Cookies and Cream over Vanilla Bean ice cream.

When it comes to something as deliciously delectable as ice cream sundaes, don’t settle for the same routine. Try a detour that takes your taste buds to “WOW!”
