It’s hard to improve on ice cream, but sundaes seem to do the trick. How delicious does a sundae made with your favorite ice cream, drizzled with the syrup of your choice, and topped off with whipped cream and a cherry sound? Still, more is always better, right? That goes for ice cream, too! These shops and restaurants appreciate that logic and give the people larger and crazier sundaes than they’ve ever had before. Take a look at six of the most over-the-top sundaes ever.
To say that people love ice cream is a bit of an understatement. According to The International Dairy Foods Association, the average American ate 22 pounds of the stuff in 2014. In 2014, ice cream and frozen dessert sales rose by 2.1 percent to bring the total sales up to $5.4 billion.
Don’t worry about running out of ice cream, though! U.S. ice cream companies cranked out more than 872 million gallons of it in 2014. How do ice cream companies make so much ice cream? With milk, of course! Over 10 percent of the milk produced by dairy farmers in the United States goes to ice cream production.
Ice cream can be enjoyed in a variety of way. You can eat it plain from a bowl or carton, on a cone, or even as a side dish to go along with cake or pie. Another popular way to eat ice cream is as a sundae. A normal sundae is made with one or two scoops of ice cream placed in a bowl or large cup. It’s then topped off with syrup of your choice, whipped cream, and maybe a cherry. A couple scoops is fine for some people, but others need more — and these ice cream places want to provide it. Check out the six most over-the-top sundaes ever.
