The summer sun is shining, the weather is warm and there’s no better way to keep cool than with a scoop or two of ice cream! This National Ice Cream Month (and all year long) your Food Town has a whole range of Blue Bunny products to help the whole family kick back, cool off and enjoy a sweet treat this summer.
Why do we love Blue Bunny? There’s a lot to love the fun brand, from its brilliant rabbit-shaped logo (complete with a cotton-puff tail!) to its variety of flavors and treat options — and the range of ways you can use them to craft your own unique desserts. Read on for a few tasty tips to help you make the most of the seasonal treat!

A pint of Blue Bunny ice cream is delightful in itself, but there’s so much more where that came from. From cookie-packed Bunny Snacks, to massive Load’d Cones and Mini Swirls for those with smaller appetites, there’s no end to the deliciousness to be had. Take the opportunity to try something new the next time you’re at your Food Town. (There are no wrong choices when it comes to ice cream!)
Do Your Ice Cream Bar Up Right
Half the fun of digging into an ice cream sundae or cone is loading it up with incredible toppings! Whipped cream, sprinkles, nuts — and that ever-important cherry — are great options if you’re looking to keep things classic. Pretzels are an unexpected sweet-meets-salty add-on, while you can’t go wrong with fresh strawberries, blueberries and other fruits, too. You can find all these options — not to mention candies, cookies and other adornments to kick that ice cream up a notch — at your favorite neighborhood grocery.
Incorporate Ice Cream into Other Awesome Desserts
Bowls and cones aren’t the only ways to get your ice cream fix. Get creative with Blue Bunny confections! Why not incorporate your favorite flavor into an ice cream cake, or pull together an amazing ice cream sandwich? Of course, a creamy, thick chocolate shake is sure to hit the spot. (Check out a couple of our favorite recipes at the end of this post!)
