The Ice Cream Connection

If these past few years have taught us anything, it’s that, no matter how tough the situation we face might be, we still need to keep in touch with one another (and let’s be honest, ice cream also helps). We ache for that sweet human connection, and this new interpretation of the ice cream social is here to help us stay in touch and put a smile on everyone’s face.

When you think of ice cream socials this summer, regardless of hosting in-person or virtually, do the same things as you would for a traditional, in-person gathering. Pick your ice cream flavors, toppings and décor. It’s as fun as having people around, with way fewer spills and messes. Your party can be as big as you want it to be. Connect with family or friends from other cities, states or countries virtually, or in person, which ever makes the most sense...but don't let distance be a barrier!

Now what? We’ll show you how to sprinkle some love and virtually host the biggest ice cream social party ever.


Make It The Best Party Ever

Here’s the scoop—hosting a virtual ice cream social should be effortless. Follow these simple steps below and make your sweet dreams come true.


Choose Your Flavors

You can’t go wrong with strawberry, old-fashioned vanilla or even chocolate. But have you thought of mixing it up a bit? The flavor possibilities are endless. Having a few varieties on hand is the start to a sweet social,


Gather Your Friends

There are apps out there that let you host as many people as you like. Make sure you send a private link to your friends and family with all the details, like the ice cream flavors, topping and decor so everyone has what they need beforehand.


Serve It Up Right

Do you have enough bowls and spoons for your immediate family or friends with you? We have some at our stores that will do the trip.
