Summer means fun in the sun, which also means it’s time to break out the cool treats. You could throw a scoop of ice cream or two in a regular bowl, or you can go all out and create an ice cream parlor experience at home. There’s something special about an ice cream sundae on a warm summer evening, complete with toppings, whipped cream, and of course, a cherry on top. 

1Classic Sundae Glass-Style Cups

These glass sundae dishes lend a flare of nostalgia, taking you back to the soda shops of the 1950s and giving a scoop of ice cream a good home — at least temporarily. 

2Ice Cream Cups With Spoons

If glass sundae dishes aren’t your family’s speed, these plastic cups shaped like ice cream cones will elevate your bowl of ice cream to an event. They’re perfect for little hands and come in a range of colors that everyone can get excited about.

3Ice Cream Cups

If paper cups are more your speed, you can buy a pack of 100 nostalgia-inducing red-striped cups to have on hand for whenever the mood strikes.

4Ice Cream Parlor Stickers

If you go with paper cups, why not make them your own? With these sweet stickers, you can add your own “ice cream parlor” name to your ice cream cups, making it a custom — and unforgettable — cup for your sweet treat.

5Smuckers Variety Pack of Chocolate, Caramel, Butterscotch, and Strawberry Syrup

What’s an ice cream sundae without the toppings? This four pack offers you the most classic options — chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, and strawberry — so anyone at your home parlor can build their sundae how they love it.

6Rainbow & Chocolate Sprinkles Bundle Pack

Whether you call them sprinkles or jimmies, whether your prefer rainbow or chocolate, this finishing touch is a must for sundaes. 

7Maraschino Cocktail Cherries
