There are two things I really, truly love — ice cream and wine. (Oh, and my kid, but I'm talking food here.) But I can honestly say that the thought of pairing the two has never crossed my mind until I tried out some Friendly's ice cream sundaes. And y'all. I'm going to go ahead and tell you right now to hit up your favorite store today, because there are some Friendly's ice cream and wine pairings you have to have in your life.
It's luxury at its finest. A glass of your favorite wine and a perfect, individual Friendly's ice cream sundae. It seriously becomes a decadent treat when you pair up these wines with your favorite ice cream flavor. Because these individual sundaes are just one serving, Friendly's really upped the game by making them look and taste like a special treat. Each sundae looks like an old-fashioned ice cream parlor sundae with toppings, including whipped cream and cherries, which makes you feel super fancy and happy. I mean, a giant carton of ice cream is fine, but when you want to make your dessert feel super special and awesome, you need these Friendly's ice cream sundaes.
And the taste? Ugh, out of this world. Look, I know my ice cream, and these light, creamy sundaes are incredible. The flavors are ingenious and they matched them all perfectly, including combinations of sweet and salty. I can't get over how good they all tasted and the presentation. The Friendly's ice cream sundaes are definitely desserts to be enjoyed and when you pair them up with wines? You've got a full-on dessert experience.
I enlisted the help of my best friend, Maddison Zulak (who took the beautiful pictures), and my boyfriend's mom, Elizabeth Singleton, (who is basically a wine connoisseur and gave me some great guidance on flavor pairings) to match up these 10 Friendly's ice cream sundaes with the perfect glass of wine. The three of us are no strangers to wine and ice cream, but we were all pleasantly surprised with some of the pairings and how good they all tasted together. Whether you want to try a pairing for a night in with Netflix or you want to create a sweet and fun dessert for a dinner party, these 10 Friendly's ice cream and wine pairings are perfect for any event.
