It's Friday, it's getting a little chilly but it's also the best time to have some ice cream sundaes. If you haven't had ice cream in winter, you really haven't had ice cream at all. Wear your favourite sweater and head out with your family (or even order in from some places) to some of the best ice cream parlours in your city. Picture this: three scoops of ice cream, chocolate, vanilla and butterscotch let's say. Topped with fruits, nuts and whichever crazy toppings take your fancy. This entire concoction then drenched in hot chocolate fudge almost filled to the rim and then a small swirl of whipped cream. And then the cherry on top. Your spoon going all the way through all these layers to fetch you that perfect cold, smooth, creamy, luscious and delicious bite of your favourite sweet treat. Now, that's something, isn't it? What are you waiting for then?
