Summertime is the best time for ice cream. Help everyone cool off with light seasonal fruit favorites like peach, strawberry, blueberry, wild berry, etc. Sorbets are also a nice refreshing choice. A melon ball sorbet treat with small scoops of cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon flavors makes a colorful summer treat. Tropical flavors like coconut, pineapple, lychee, mango, passion fruit, dragonfruit, guava, coconut, and guanabana are a little exotic and a good way to give people a sense of a nice vacation on a tropical island.
The upcoming holidays present a chance to offer promotional flavors as well.
Father’s Day: Flavors that include dad’s favorite snacks like beer, peanuts, salty pretzel, or chocolate covered potato chips are always a hit.
Memorial Day/Flag Day/Independence Day: Red, White and Blue! Cherry/strawberry, blueberry, lemon/vanilla are traditional favorites to incorporate in the colors of the stars and stripes. Cotton candy or bubble gum in red and blue colors or red velvet, blueberry muffin, & white cake could be fun twists on the traditional. With food coloring you could make any flavor into red, white or blue to create all kinds of fun new variations on the color/flavor combination.
Summer holidays are a perfect time for cold treats.
