13 Sophisticated Ice Cream Toppings

We’re raising the bar for National Fudge Sundae Day.

 

There’s nothing wrong with the classic sundae you grew up with, complete with hot fudge and a cherry. But, if you really want to splurge, it’s time to explore some new mature flavor combinations… meaning, it’s time to upgrade your kiddie sundae.

 

Think of a scoop of ice cream as a blank canvas. 

Now, add a sprinkle of WHAM

A couple spoonfuls of POW. 

A dollop of BANG.

And suddenly you’ve discovered your new comfort food.

OREO Day!

Oreos.jpgIf you’re anything like me, you grew up with Oreos. And chances are, you have your own Oreo style. The Dunk… The Stack… The Twist-and-Lick.

You may prefer the Classic, the Golden, the Thin, or the Double-Stuffed, or you may be adventurous, sampling the never-ending list of Limited Edition flavors. How many of these have you tried?

 

Me? I’m more of a purest. I prefer the classic. The one that I can split into halves, suddenly feeling like I doubled my score. The one that has that distinct chocolate flavor, and just the right amount of frosting. That classic Oreo cookie— that reminds me of childhood.

I guess at the end of the day, every cookie consumer creates their own Oreo experience…And today is the day to bring it to the table.
