Ice cream is a classic treat year-round. Every season brings new ways to enjoy it. Whether it's Christmas or Mother's Day, it's always a good way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Ice Cream is Perfect for Valentine's Day
Because it’s a dessert-fueled holiday, ice cream is the perfect treat to gear towards customers in the Valentine’s Day Spirit. You can dress it up in a fancy sundae or shake, or let the flavors speak for themselves.
Here’s a list of flavors that are a must-serve this year:
1. Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet is a fun take on chocolate ice cream, the extra acidity makes it less dense than regular chocolate. This means you can enjoy more without it being too rich. Not to mention, it's the perfect color for Valentine's Day!
2. Creme Brulee
This classic French dessert is known for being elegant. The caramelized sugar gives it a nice, contrasting texture from regular ice cream. This would be perfect with a fun red cup like this one.
3. Chocolate Strawberry
Valentine's Day is known for decadent desserts like chocolate-covered strawberries. Whether they're on a stick or a plate, they're perfect for any occasion. This ice cream is a great new perspective on the classic treat.
4. Rose Petal
Nothing beats a dozen roses on Valentine's Day - except maybe rose petal ice cream. This less-common flavor is perfect for you and your sweetheart. It's sophisticated, light, and unexpected. A good way to make this is to blend together sugar and rose petals, simmer this with heavy cream, until the sugar is dissolved, and mix it into vanilla or sweet cream ice cream.
5. Salted Caramel
Salted caramel is popular for a reason: it's perfect for anyone who wants something sweet, but not too sweet. The saltiness cuts through the flavor of the caramel. This makes it a unique option for anyone without a huge sweet-tooth.
6. Raspberry Sorbet
This is a different take on regular ice cream and it's safe for vegans! Because raspberries have a tart taste, they're perfect for sorbet. They don't weigh down the flavor, making this a great option for people who don't love traditionally sweet things.
7. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
This classic ice cream flavor is a good choice for Valentine's Day. It's not too decadent or rich, while still being sweet and chocolatey. This option also works well for sundae bars because it's simple enough to complement other toppings but it isn't boring on its own.
8. Strawberry Cheesecake
Swirls of strawberry work in harmony with tart cheesecake to make a perfect Valentine's Day treat. The strawberries add a nice pop of pink to match the holiday. Along with that, cheesecake is a classic dessert that introduces a more elegant feel to your Valentine's night.
9. Cherry Vanilla
This pretty pink ice cream will add some fun to your holiday. The cherries add a wash of color to an otherwise plain treat. It's sweet and light, perfect for a Galentine's party or a night in with your significant other.
10. Classic Chocolate
There's nothing more romantic than classic chocolate ice cream. It's a major crowd-pleaser that's simple enough to work well with other toppings or even a cone. Try making your own with this Cone Forming Tool and Waffle Cone Mix.
Whether they're eating it at a party or on a date, in a cup or a cone, ice cream is always a good choice. Valentine's Day is the perfect time to enjoy it. These flavors will be a fun addition to your Valentine's Day menu.
