The Walmart Ice Cream Social at home: Sundae Bar (#theicecreamsocial)

Last month my family attended The Walmart Ice Cream Social, an in-store demo event at Walmart that was fun. And tasty. And involved yummy Edy's ice cream.

Did I mention it was tasty?

And did I also mention that Walmart is holding another event this upcoming July 2 that is going to involve Nestlé Drumstick Lil' Drums Sundae Cones? Um... yes, please!

So, after thoroughly enjoying our treats at The Walmart Ice Cream Social, we made sure to check out the options that Walmart had to offer for our own sundae bar. We drooled over the large variety of Edy's ice cream...

...including all of their unique flavors...

Yum! After picking out a few ice creams, we went straight for the toppings. As well as typical toppings, we like to include our favorite candies as well. Because if candy bars are good on their own, then they're even better with ice cream, of course!

With so many choices, the hardest part is deciding which ones to bring home!

As we were having a small family reunion at our house, it was the perfect time to have a sundae bar for all of the kids and adults. We would have had it outdoors, but with the cool summer weather we've been having, we moved it indoors to enjoy everything. Did that take away from the excitement and the fun?

With a spread like that, how could it?

Little Sister B pretty much sums it up with this look:

But here's really how the party turned out...

Even after forgetting to get out the ice cream cones and the sprinkles (dang it!) and that we didn't have any cherries to put on top (what was I thinking?) the sundae bar still turned out delicious and fun! Walmart had everything we needed and with so many yummy Nestlé options to build our sundaes our way, there was no way to go wrong.

I know that we'll be sure to have more sundae bars this summer... after all, with so many flavors of ice cream still left to try, we can't just stop now, right? Next time I'm going to make sure to have all of my ingredients set out beforehand, though.

Now, can someone please pass the Edy's Slow Churned? I need a second scoop!

This shop/project has been compensated as part of a campaign for Nestlé but all views and opinions are my own.
