Make Monday A Fun Day for a Sundae

by Alli

Thanks to Sverve & Smucker’s® for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Mondays seem to always get a bad rap.  Have you ever heard anyone say, “Wow, I can hardly wait until Monday?”  Nope.  Those words are usually reserved for the weekend.  Songs have been sung about rainy Mondays and blue Mondays.

I think Mondays deserve much better, so I’m on a crusade to get rid of the Monday blues.  I’ve declared Monday a fun day for a sundae.  Wouldn’t we all look forward to Mondays if we knew dessert consisted of an ice cream sundae bar with all the toppings?

With my Monday sundae list in hand, or rather on my phone, I headed to Kroger to stock up on everything I would need for my sundae bar, including the best part of a sundae, the toppings.  I had already located the aisle for the Smucker’s® ice cream toppings by looking here.  Thanks, Kroger!

Smuckers/Krogers Ice Cream Sundae PartySure enough, when I arrived on aisle 30, all the toppings were right there.  Then came the hard part, choosing which toppings I wanted to incorporate into my ice cream bar.  Smucker’s® has such a variety and I wanted them all.

Make Monday a Fun Day with SmuckersMy favorite topping is caramel . . . or is it chocolate?  Decisions, decisions.  Why not grab one of each?  Sounds like a plan to me!

Smuckers®I also made sure to get some toppings the rest of the family likes, too.  I mean, really, it’s not all about me. My husband’s favorite is butterscotch, so it went into the cart, too.  All the kids like chocolate and caramel, too.

Fun day SundaeNow that I’ve got all my sundae toppings, I’m ready to create a Monday Fun Day Sundae bar.  But you’ll have to wait another day for that.

What’s your favorite Smucker’s® ice cream topping?

We love sundaes in our home and any day is a great day for a Sundae bar! In fact, we’ll follow suit and have one today!

Smucker’s is about 25 minutes from my house 🙂 The REAL place! I love their ice cream toppings and jams. I could really go for a strawberry sundae now.

We literally eat ice cream every single day in our family. Sundaes make eating that ice cream even better, though!!

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle July 20, 2015 - 11:23 am

This is pure genius. There is no more day of the week more suited for ice cream therapy than Monday.

Diana Villa July 20, 2015 - 11:30 am

Those ice cream toppings look so good! I am running to Kroger to buy them. Thanks! 😀

Melissa Pezza July 20, 2015 - 11:53 am

Well, it’s about time Monday was good for something! I am 100% on board with Monday sundaes!

ricci July 20, 2015 - 12:01 pm

Give me all the caramel!!! I love Smucker’s caramel!!! YUM!!

Carmen Perez (listen2mama) July 20, 2015 - 12:59 pm

We love the Magic Shell one, but I’ll take a sundae on any day!

Grace Hodgin July 20, 2015 - 2:25 pm

Sundae Bars are always a winner at my house and I love Smucker brands for the toppings. When the kids were at home I had ‘Fin for Yourself Night’ which meant go find a left over because I’m not cooking. I always kept ice cream toppings on the counter for them to fix a sundae for dessert. It always made eating left overs so much better.

Mary July 20, 2015 - 3:51 pm

You are just too fun!! I want to come for a sundae. Carmamel plz and then hot fudge for later. lol

lisa @bitesforbabies July 20, 2015 - 4:45 pm

This works for me, lol! I could eat ice cream every day…except I can’t because I don’t eat dairy, lol!

Chubskulit Rose July 20, 2015 - 5:17 pm

I don’t usually put toppings on ice cream but once in a while, nuts and fruits are great! Can’t wait for the Sundae bar post.

Michelle de Guzman July 20, 2015 - 6:14 pm

Hot Fudge is still my favorite. But I love to add chocolate chips and nuts to my sundae. I love the idea of making Mondays special to eliminate the Monday Blues.

April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition July 20, 2015 - 7:05 pm

Any day is definitely good for a sundae. I like to top mine with chocolate, butterscotch, caramel or any kind of magic shell.

Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green July 20, 2015 - 9:45 pm

I’m a sundae everyday type of gal so I love this. I either eat my ice cream with nothing on top of a bit of chocolate syrup.

Colette - JamericanSpice July 20, 2015 - 9:46 pm

I”m a huge fan of Mondays!
And I love the idea of making it a Sundae kinda fun day 🙂 Love your title 🙂

Alli S. July 20, 2015 - 10:14 pm

I hope I could join in on the fun! Sundae is one of my many comfort foods.

Shirley Wood July 20, 2015 - 10:33 pm

We haven’t had an ice cream bar yet this summer. I’m inspired now! We simply must have the chocolate and caramel toppings!!

Ourfamilyworld July 20, 2015 - 11:01 pm

What better way to start the week than with a sundae. My kids love toppings on their ice cream.

Amanda July 20, 2015 - 11:19 pm

So, I’m not going to lie, this has been one of the WORST Mondays in a long time. And coming on the heels of National Ice Cream Day, I totally wanted to drown my sorrows in some hot fudge. Can’t wait til tomorrow!

Nickida July 21, 2015 - 12:17 am

Making sundaes are the best. I love having it as a fun dessert with the kids. We’ll have to make some tomorrow after dinner.

Mistee Dawn July 21, 2015 - 1:09 am

I love Smuckers. And I think the caramel would be my favorite topping. Though I do love them all!

Uplifting Families July 21, 2015 - 2:07 am

I love this idea. Poor Monday gets picked on alot unless it happens to be your day off because you work other shifts.

Lisa July 21, 2015 - 3:09 am

Every day is made better by ice cream sundaes – but especially Mondays! Now I’m seriously craving some ice cream!

Rosey July 22, 2015 - 4:49 pm

It is the perfect way to make Monday a day look more appealing. Out with the mundane! 🙂

Dawn McAlexander July 21, 2015 - 6:03 am

I love these syrups to top off my sundae with. I think my favorite would be the caramel. I just love caramel flavoring. I like it in coffee and on ice cream.

Ron Leyba July 21, 2015 - 7:36 am

Lots of people blames MONDAY for being, yeah, Monday. But I guess, Monday is a great day to start the week right. right? 🙂 Monday for SUNDAE is a good idea!

Joanne T Ferguson July 21, 2015 - 8:07 am

I love ice cream and am a big fan of Smuckers from long ago! Is there any day one would not scream for ice cream? I think Monday as you suggested would be a perfect day! I am now salivating for ice cream!

Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies July 21, 2015 - 9:55 am

The flavours all look like great toppings for ice cream! I’ll definitely pick some of these up next time I’m out shopping!

Lynndee July 21, 2015 - 11:01 am

I consider myself a chocoholic so my favorite is definitely the hot fudge. Ice cream is one of our favorite desserts and there was never a day that we didn’t scream for ice cream. 🙂

Ann Bacciaglia July 21, 2015 - 3:02 pm

I love making Ice cream sundays. My favorite is the Magic Shell coating. I have a ton of toppings to choose from.

CourtneyLynne July 21, 2015 - 3:38 pm

My hubby is ice cream obsessed and I am always looking for new ice cream ideas! I will have to check some of these sundae toppings out!

Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly July 21, 2015 - 5:44 pm

I will have to try these Smucker’s® ice cream toppings, in my humble opinion any day of the week is a fun day for a sundae! But then again I worked on an ice cream in my teens, so I may be a bit biased! 🙂

Jeanine July 21, 2015 - 5:58 pm

Yum! We go through so much ice cream in our house. We love it and cannot get enough! I need to make a Sundae Monday! HOW FUN!

desirae young July 21, 2015 - 8:07 pm

We love having sundae nights! We love to have some fun creating our own special ice cream bowls.

Erin July 22, 2015 - 10:08 am

Yes for Sundaes on Mondays! I want more Monday Sundaes around here. And Tuesday Sundaes. lol!

Bonnie @ wemake7 July 22, 2015 - 10:13 am

I can’t believe we haven’t had a sundae in like forever! Now after reading this I know what we are doing today! =)

Jessica Simms July 22, 2015 - 12:07 pm

Any day is a good day for a Sundae! Especially on a hot summer day. Smuckers is a loved product in my home, we trust and love it here.

Cia | July 22, 2015 - 8:37 pm

I need a peanut butter topping in my life. If not peanut butter then the traditional hot fudge will just have to do. 🙂

Krystal July 23, 2015 - 9:21 am

I can’t wait for my own hot fudge sundae. I like to treat myself with one on the weekends. YUM!

Kelly Hutchinson July 23, 2015 - 7:01 pm

In my house, any day is a fun day for a sundae!! We love to have a lot of different sauces and toppings for ours.

Gabriel July 23, 2015 - 11:00 pm

I’m pretty simple, chocolate is my favorite…well, maybe except for strawberry. I love ice cream pretty much any way I can get it, to be honest.
