Perfect Ice Cream Sundae and What’s In My Beach Bag

by Alli

Perfect Ice Cream Sundae is written by me on behalf of Mike & Ike. All opinions are entirely my own.

I’m counting down the days until we’re headed to the beach for a week with the grandkids. This will be the first time my husband and I take the grandkids without their parents tagging along. So, I’m making a list and checking it twice. Plus, I’m dreaming up snack ideas including the Perfect Ice Cream Sundae without a whole lot of work.

What's In My Beach Bag Plus The Perfect Ice Cream Sundae

Beach vacations are all about fun in the sun. That’s why I make a list of everything I’ll need for my beach bag. I made a printable list of essentials for my beach bag and a packing list. You can print my lists out for free >>> Packing-List-Beach-Trip

What's In My Beach Bag Plus Ice Cream Sundae

Protection from the Sun – Sunscreen, SPF Lip Balm, Sunglasses and Sun Hats

Sunscreen Is a Must - perfect ice cream sundae

We call my daughter the sunscreen queen because no one ever gets a sunburn on her watch. That means I have to be extra diligent to slather that sunscreen on every 90 minutes (per her instructions) and they have to sit still for 10 minutes so it won’t wash off the minute they jump into the water. I also include SPF lip balm to keep those little lips free from sunburn.

Beach Towels

Each grandson is responsible for grabbing their own beach towel when we head to the beach. I always grab a couple of extras.

Wet Wipes

I always have wet wipes with me to wipes those little hands before having a snack!

Clear Zip Bags

I’m a neat freak, so I always have clear zip bags in my beach bag to help keep sand and water away from my phone. I use gallon size bags to hold the sunscreen and lip balm. The smaller bags hold my phone, keys, etc.

The grandkids’ favorite summer snack is MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour. We’re thrilled that they have a brand new product release at Walmart, MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour!

Perfect Ice Cream Sundae and a Week at the Beach

The grandkids and I enjoy the MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour while taking a break from swimming. They also make the best topping for ice cream sundaes. I like MIKE AND IKE Mega Mix Sour because they are gluten-free and fat-free.

Perfect Ice Cream Sundae

We always take a break from the sun in the afternoon and Ice Cream Sundaes really hit the spot. For me, the perfect ice cream toppings always include something sweet, something crunchy, something fruity, and something chocolatey.

My kids love making their own sundaes. I’ll be sure to try all these tips. It’s so much fun to make them yourself and I just love that bag!

Glenda Cates July 25, 2018 - 9:27 am

I love the Bag your using and after seeing the Sundae I think my son and I will make one tomorrow.

Natalie July 25, 2018 - 9:56 am

Your beach bag is the cutest! I need to get a new one, mine has served its purpose. And now I really want a sundae!

Sounds like you have all the important items needed for the beach in your bag. That ice cream sundae looks so yummy. The grandkids love that type of candy so this would be a winner.

Melissa Chapman July 25, 2018 - 10:44 am

I hope you have a great time at the beach and i can see you are watching the sun. I have to get some Mike and ikes for my kids and try this sundae.

Terri Steffes July 25, 2018 - 10:50 am

I love your bag! My husband loves the new sweet and sour mix. He’s loved the original since he was a kid!

robin rue July 25, 2018 - 11:04 am

My 10 year old is OBSESSED with sour candy, so he is going to love these. I need to go to the store and surprise him with some.

Jeanette July 25, 2018 - 12:43 pm

Making Sundaes is probably one of the most summer things I can think of. Our family is all over them. They are fun to make the taste great and you can do whatever you want on them.

Heather July 25, 2018 - 12:44 pm

I never thought about putting Mike n Ikes on Ice Cream Sundaes. That sounds fun for kids. I need to be more diligent about putting sunscreen on every 90 minutes. I tend to forget after its first applied.

valmg @ Mom Knows It All July 25, 2018 - 3:49 pm

I haven’t seen these Mike N Ikes before. My oldest son loves sour things so I am sure he’d be up for trying them.

Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh July 25, 2018 - 8:21 pm

That looks delicious! You know, I am SO glad that your beach bag doesn’t include a bunch of useless stuff. Living within minutes of the beach, I sometimes skim lists that people make, and I’m all like I don’t need all that stuff…and yours was perfect! 🙂

Sara Welch July 26, 2018 - 12:03 am

Oh my word that sundae looks delicious. Mike & Ikes are such a great idea!

Jenn @ EngineerMommy July 26, 2018 - 1:40 am

Oh this looks so delicious. I love an ice cream sundae and Mike & Ikes would only make one better! I pack the same things in my beach bag.

Chubskulit Rose July 26, 2018 - 5:57 am

I love your beach bag, I should get one designed like that since hubby is a retired sailor. My son love Mike and Ike.

Nikki July 26, 2018 - 11:06 am

My son loves putting Mike and Ikes on his ice-cream. I am sure he would love this sundae! How cute is that beach bag?

Terri Beavers July 26, 2018 - 1:31 pm

Even the grandkids love Mike and Ike sour treats so I have to stay stocked up on them. I’ve never even thought to add them to their ice cream. I’ll have to try that soon.

Vyjay Rao July 27, 2018 - 3:21 am

Can see that you are ready to roll for the beach vacation with the kids. The Ice cream sundae with the toppings of Mike and Ike Mega mix sour looks like a winner all the way. Ice cream sundaes with something crunchy, fruity, and sweet are always great.

Megan August 19, 2018 - 10:44 am

OMG, Mike and Ike’s brings me back to my childhood. I had no idea that they were still making them…and adding them to ice cream is pure genius.

My trainer isn’t going to be happy that I stumbled on your article and found out I can get them at Wal-Mart but I sure am! 🙂 Have a great day.
