How Many Ways Can You Eat Frozen Treats?
According to research by NPD Group, about 40% of Americans will eat ice cream in any given two-week period. Even in the winter, the cold, creamy joys of any frozen treat, whether it be ice cream, gelato, or frozen yogurt is a true delight. During the summer, it is almost necessary medicine for hot days and nights, and accordingly, June is the month when the most ice cream is produced.
There are seemingly endless options for consuming your favorite icy snacks — pouring espresso over vanilla ice cream, loading up your fro-yo with endless topping, or even right out of the box and freezer in the most desperate situations.
Here are a couple of suggestions for how to eat some delicious treats, and utilize your dessert supplies, specifically ice cream:
1. On… Anything
Seriously, pretty much anything becomes much better when you have it “a la mode” — think pie, cake, cookies, pudding, crumbles, crisps, or even beverages like coffee or hot chocolate.
2. Sandwich It
When you start to think about it, the possibilities are truly endless. Think Ritz crackers, cookies, spun sugar, churros, Lucky Charms, and even mini blueberry pies. Basically anything can be used to deliver ice cream or any other frozen snack to your mouth faster and more deliciously.
3. Cup It
Now, this may not seem like the most creative option, but it certainly is the most efficient, and accommodates the most toppings. This is especially important when it comes to frozen yogurt, which almost always warrants yogurt cups. For this reason, frozen yogurt has been becoming extremely popular — there were an estimated 2, 582 frozen yogurt stores open in 2013.
Do not be ashamed of the need for frozen treats. They are satisfying and delicious to pretty much everyone, and the ability to mold and shape them offers infinite possibilities for getting really creative with your ice cream consumption. Whether it’s just for you, or you want to serve some unique treats at your next gathering, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and stock up on dessert supplies.
