Top Summer Fun with a Sundae

To celebrate July as National Ice Cream Month, we threw a sundae party for our kids. Nothing is better than enjoying a delicious sundae on a hot Summer day. Mix in water activities for kids and you’ve got a fantastic Summer party!  We were excited to receive a sampling of Smucker’s ice cream toppings and promotional items to throw our party and facilitate this post.

Top Summer Fun with a Sundae

Whether you are throwing your own sundae party or just serving up some Summer fun for your family, Smucker’s offerings the premium ice cream toppings for everyone. Whether you like hot or cold toppings or even frozen shell toppings, Smucker’s knows how to top Summer fun with a sundae for every taste! We were able to check out  2 Smucker’s Shell products and 2 microwavable products for our sundae party.

P1080066I like all ice cream toppings, hot or cold, however I love hot toppings for sundaes!  Smucker’s offers 4 Microwaveable Ice Cream Toppings including Hot Butterscotch, Hot Caramel, Hot Fudge, and Hot Milk Chocolate. We tried the Hot Butterscotch and Hot Milk Chocolate – both were huge hits with the kids and parents! Yummy! I like that the bottles don’t get scorching hot so even kids can pour it. If you don’t have it warmed, it taste great cold too.

Below, Lila pours on the Hot Butterscotch on her sundae.


Elijah went crazy with the Hot Milk Chocolate – that’s what happens when you give an 8 year old a bottle of chocolate!!chocolate

Elizabeth opted for Hot Milk Chocolate as well to start things off.


The Ice Cream Sandwich Dessert on the Smucker’s website looks amazing with ice cream sandwiches, whipped topping, Hot Fudge topping and Hot Caramel topping. I’m sure the Milk Chocolate and Butterscotch or any combination would rock too! It would be a huge hit at a party – it’s like an ice cream sundae cubed.

My kids have so much fun with Smucker’s Magic Shell toppings. It is so fun to see the toppings freeze on ice cream and then break through it when you bite into it. There are a variety of Magic Shell flavors like caramel, chocolate, cupcake, and orange cream. New this year are Pink Lemonade and Rootbeer. Lila added the Pink Lemonade Shell to her Hot Caramel sundae. She loved the combination!  She said that the Pink Lemonade Magic Shell taste just like her older sister’s Pink Lemonade cookies and she loved it!PinkLemonade

Below is the delicious Rootbeer Shell, see how it freezes even in lines?

rootbeerFor the Root Beer Magic Shell topping, I’d like to try Smucker’s Root Beer Ice Cream Sugar Cones recipe. I know my kids would love it, especially when we add sprinkles on the shell topping!  It reminds me of the cones you buy at the pool or store that are $1-2 each, so this is an affordable alternative. There are so many delicious recipes on the Smucker’s website, you’ve gotta check it out. The Chocolate Raspberry Bon Bons recipe with Magic Shell Chocolate Fudge topping looks amazing too.


Elijah’s friend, David enjoyed a combination of Hot Milk Chocolate with Rootbeer Shell.chocolateandrootbeer

My ultimate sundae includes hot toppings, whipped cream, and crushed nuts. I enjoyed the hot milk chocolate and hot butterscotch toppings the best. I’m so glad that I had the opportunity to review these two items because I always opt for the Hot Fudge and Hot Caramel toppings. It’s good to switch things up a bit. Now I know that I like this combination just as well! It is sooooooooooo good! We use Ruggles Vanilla Bean ice cream too instead of just plain vanilla. It has a great, fresh vanilla bean flavor to it.


We had a great time enjoying our sundaes together. Afterward, we got out the sprinklers and slip n slide for more Summer fun. It doesn’t take much to have an awesome party – just add sunshine, water, and ice cream sundaes. Do you agree?!

How do you top off Summer fun?  What is your favorite sundae combination? We’d love to see it, pin it to my SummerSundae Pinterest board! Tag with #SummerSundae
