~ CLOSED ~ Nothing Says Summer Like Ice-Cream {w/$50.00 GC Giveaway}

Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but for me, nothing says summer like ice-cream. Whether it’s a single scoop in a cone after a ballgame or a full-fledged fancy dessert party, nothing is more evocative of summer than ice-cream!

I love the relaxed, easy-going vibe of summer ice-cream desserts. Be it a Deep Dish Watermelon Ice Cream Cake or a make your own sundae complete with waffle bowls, toppings and various flavours, ice-cream is always a perfect dessert.

  • PC Dulce de Leche Caramel Creme Spread – This deliciously rich, smooth spread is made with authentic ingredients including whole milk, sugar and vanilla, cooked gently and slowly for 3 hours until thick, creamy and caramelized. This classic South American treat is delectable on bread or toast, waffles, crepes, ice cream, cookies, cakes and as a dip for fruit. Imported from Argentina.
  • PC Organics Canadian Wild Blueberries – Use these luscious, ripe blueberries in place of fresh fruit in smoothies, milkshakes, muffins, pies and desserts or as a topping for cereal, yogurt and ice cream.
