I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream

I am a HUGE ice cream fan. Ask anyone who knows me.Sundaes, milk shakes, one scoop, two scoops, you name it. I’m there.

My favorites are mint chocolate chip and Oreo (not together), but I can persuaded any number of ways.

So you can understand when I learned about this upcoming event that I was bummed I won’t be around to attend.  But that doesn’t mean that you can’t…

As part of the summer search for the best ice cream sundaes, popular Durham-based, Raleigh-local chef, Karen Barker, has teamed up with Breyers ice cream to bring the “Sundae Showcase” to Raleigh for Kids Fest on August 29. Karen has developed a signature Raleigh-inspired ice cream recipe, “Sweet & Spicy Peach Pecan Sundae,” with Breyers® All Natural Peach ice cream, shortbread cookies and cinnamon and spice.

While at the Sundae Showcase event, families can indulge with free scoops* of Breyers® Original All Natural Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough or Homemade Vanilla ice cream, get creative at the build-your-own sundae bar, and enjoy Karen’s sundae demonstrations, games and entertainment.

Ice cream fans can also enter the Sundae Scoop-Off recipe contest at Breyers.com for a chance to win $10,000, a trip for four to Chicago and one year of free Breyers® ice cream. The recipe entries will be judged on taste, creativity, use of Breyers® ice cream and presentation.
