Hot Fudge Sundae

National Hot Fudge Sundae Day calls for all-things-ice cream!

Make a Sundae Bar for Hot Fudge Sundae Day!

Today, which is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day, is all about celebrating and enjoying the tastiness of this unique dessert that was invented at the very end of the 1800s and gained popularity in the beginning of the 1900s[1]. Do you know why it’s spelled “sundae”? Well, there used to be “Sunday Blue Laws” that prohibited soda water from being sold on Sundays. This resulted in no ice cream sodas, which was a popular treat at the time[2]. People began making what is now known as a sundae instead! It is also noted that the spelling was changed from “Sunday” so that the ice cream treat would no longer be associated with only eating them on Sundays, and to not commercialize the word “Sunday” which was thought to be as sacred[1].

Whether you like banana splits or the traditional hot fudge sundae, there are endless options for creating a totally customized sundae. Why not create an ice cream sundae bar filled with toppings, your favorite syrups and a variety of ice cream flavors. Get inspiration from Blue Bunny’s DIY Sundae Bar!
