Getting together doesn’t have to be stressful. Think about the parties you enjoyed when you were younger and I bet an ice cream social comes to mind. It was a chance to get together, play games, eat delicious ice cream, and maybe even dance or play music for a bit.
Ice Cream Social – Choose the Right Ice Cream
The star of any ice cream social has to be made from fresh milk and cream that’s rBST-free, with no artificial colors or flavors, and it’s got to be GMO-free. Luckily, DREYER’S SLOW CHURNED® ice cream has all of these features because it’s simply made from real ingredients to be simply delicious.
I scooped the ice cream into plastic serving cups so that on the day of our party, it’s one less thing I’ll need to do. These sundae cups also have inserts so I can put toppings in them and since they’re stored separately, they’ll allow the person enjoying the treat to decide whether or not to pour the topping over their ice cream. Making these individual servings ahead of time makes party day a breeze!
We’ve stocked our freezer with DREYER’S SLOW CHURNED® Caramel Delight Light Ice Cream with its ribbons of golden caramel and DREYER’S SLOW CHURNED® Vanilla Light Ice Cream with flecks of real vanilla bean.
Plus a few fun flavors like Washington Apple Pie with bits of Washington apples and apple pie pieces and Maine Blueberry. My local Walmart store has plenty of variety in stock; it was hard not to bring them all home with me.
You can visit your local Washington State Walmart on 6/30 or 7/2 (depending on location – check your store’s demo schedule here) where they’ll be demoing this smooth and creamy ice cream so you can try it for yourself, or just trust me, it’s fantastic and treat yourself to a pint or two!
