"Virtual" Ice Cream Social

Okay all, as the heat starts to hit all of us.. we need a good old fashion ice cream social.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Favorite topping?


Anyone have any memories of going to ice cream socials?


Me: Vanilla with hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry...traditional sundae. We used to have ice cream socials every summer at my grade school put on my the park department. The school had a huge play ground, play field and a swimming pool.

I use to get this ice cream at a place called Larry's. It was coffee ice cream with cinnamon crunch strusel ribboned throughout in a wonderful waffle come. My DH and I use to go there in the evenings and go walk on the beach.

OK, I'm going to have a banana split. One banana, cut in half, two scoops of chocolate ice cream, large amounts of caramel goo poured over top, hot fudge poured over that, and then a handful of peanut M&Ms to top it all off.

I think I'll just sit here on the deck, kadesma on one side and Dave on the other, scarfing my sundae. Enjoying the summer sun you guys? Mmmmmmm this sundae ROCKS!

no ice cream socials but home made ice cream on my grandmas porch in rodgersville ala. usually peach or strawberry all grown on the farm. never had any as good since. i do love a really rich vanilla ice cream with hot fudge, hold the nuts and topped with whipped cream. don't even need the cherry on top. grandmas was made with old fashioned crank. when temp is 104 ice cream is heaven.

When I was growing up, hot fudge sundaes were a special treat.

I'll have a hot fudge sundae with coffee ice cream, whipped cream and nuts. I'll just sit here on the deck if someone will help me up later.

Oooo! Andy, here's your coffee ice cream with whipped cream...what kind of nuts would you like? I have pecans, walnuts and peanuts.

Wyogal, bring that banana up to our deck and we'll throw together the best virtual sundae you can imagine.

babetoo, is it really 104 there? Whew!
