The unofficial last hurrah of summer
After a long midwest summer, it’s finally time to wind down the pool parties, beach vacations and sunny picnics in the park with friends and family. School is starting back up and temperatures are starting to drop as the days grow shorter and shorter. Memorial day is long gone and the 4th of July feels like ages ago. But, fear not fellow lover of all things summer, there’s still one last bastion of sun-drenched summer fun that the whole neighborhood will love: yes, Labor Day!
The unofficial last hurrah of summer falls on September 3rd this year and that means one thing (besides the fact that it’s time to retire those white pants): your friends and family all have the day off and it’s time to party! To help you plan the best possible Labor Day extravaganza, we’re here to give you our ideas for the perfect end-of-summer frozen delights.
Since Labor Day is all about celebrating and honoring the hardworking people of the USA, the perfect way to show your appreciation of their accomplishments is with a beautiful and quintessentially American dessert. So why not pick up a few pints of Strawberry Bliss, Madagascar Vanilla and Blue Moon to scoop your very own red, white and blue patriotic sundaes? Nothing could be more patriotic or delicious and, of course, it’ll look fantastic!
Or, maybe you want to capture the essence of a beachy summer getaway with your Labor Day party. Well, we’ve got you covered there as well. Try combining scoops of our two amazing vegan ice cream creations, Pineapple Paradise and Coconut Chocolate Fudge, for a swirl of island themed flavors that’s sure to whisk your taste buds away on a tropical adventure. You could also substitute our Naughty (booze infused) Boozy Banana Rum in place of Pineapple Paradise for an adults-only flavor vacation that’s sure to put you in the mood to party.
Being the (unofficial) last day of summer, Labor Day also signals the end of pool season. A tragedy to be sure, especially with this lingering Midwest heat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have one last pool party bash to bring your summer to a perfect close! If your Labor Day plans include a day of sunbathing and cannon-balls, pick up a few pints of refreshing Clementine’s flavors like Roman Punch for the grown-ups or Blackberry Buttermilk for the kids. It’s the best way to say goodbye to summer with a smile and remember all the good times and delicious scoops you had these past few month.
No matter what your plans are for Labor Day, be sure to pick up a few pints of Clementine’s ice cream to make your celebration, big or small, as sweet can be. Let us know your favorite Labor Day dessert ideas in the comments below!
