Summer Ice Cream Party with Target and Giveaway!

Summer BBQs aren’t complete without a healthy dose of ice cream, right? They kind of go hand in hand if you ask me. And you’re asking..aren’t you?

We love to have friends over in the summer for dinner…it’s an easy way to get together, grill some burgers and let the kids run wild. And sometimes unplanned get-togethers are the best kind.

Obviously I like to make desserts… but when friends gather last minute you don’t always have time to get in the kitchen to bake.

Enter Target…my BFF.

They are running a buy three get one free special on Klondike, Magnum, Fruttare brands. So basically they’ve got dessert covered! And everyone likes an ice cream bar. It’s a fact.


I literally loaded up on ice cream bars and everyone was happy!

After burgers and slip and slide time the kids were ready for dessert…


And clearly they all enjoyed the ice cream!


Love a good ice cream smile!

    My favorite ice cream treat in the summer is gelato at our local gelato store, or Ben and Jerry’s or haagen daz bars. hmmmm, so my favorite ice cream treat is yes πŸ™‚

  3. Paula

    Klondike has always been a favorite. I stock up when they are on sale. Any flavor! I have tried the Magnums….what a way to go!

  4. Heather G.

    this summer my favorite guilt free treat has been frozen bananas whipped into a delicious ice cream type food. YUM.

  5. Meena V

    Love the Klondike Bars – the Heath is the best – even better than the Heath Candy Bar (which is one of my favorites too). My whole family is addicted to Klondike bars and we have one several times a week!

  6. Goreti

    I love any kind of ice cream but Magnum Bars are my absolute favorite. They are worth every calorie. That reminds me I have some in the freezer. Time to eat one. YUMMMMM

  7. Stephanie

    I am so addicted to ice cream all year round, it’s hard to even choose a fave. I reeeeeally love Chipwiches though!!

  8. Jenn Perrigo

    My favorite ice cream is choc chip cookie dough or a snickers ice cream bar!!! Klondikes are pretty darn good too!!! Mmmmmm might have to make a run to the store to pick some up!!!!

  9. If it’s from the ice cream truck, I’m a sucker for the Good Humor Chocolate Eclair ice cream bars. If I’m out and about, either vanilla soft serve or mint chocolate chip ice cream with rainbow sprinkles (because even in my late-30’s there is nothing like ice cream with rainbow sprinkles!).

  10. Leslie

    Magnum bars, when I can indulge! Been a fan since before they were sold in the States πŸ™‚ Thank you trip to Spain circa 1999!

  11. Nicole Marie

    My favorite ice cream was from a local place in California. They made the best moca chip! Now that I live in Alaska (we have only been here for a week) I get to try new places and find my new favorite!

  12. Cara R

    I love brownie sundaes with hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry of course! But when I need a quick ice cream fix the Reese’s Klondike bars are my fave!

  13. Chelcea

    I love milky pops I think that’s what they are called they’re like japense pop icicle comes is orange strawberry and other yummy flavors haha

  14. Kelly m

    I am particularly fond of local ice cream stands in the summer, but find that most ice cream will do. Love the caramel and pretzel Klondike. Never tried a magnum.

  15. Juliann

    We are year-round ice cream eaters. Our favorites are pistachio and salted caramel. We love the huge Klondike ice cream sandwiches!

  16. Chocolate Chip ice cream on a sugar cone! But I also love Magnum bars! I get them as a treat for myself and hide them in the freezer behind the hamburger lol…

  17. ariana

    I am a sucker for all things chocolate and peanut butter. However, the best frozen treat for me is Luigi’s Mango Italian Ice. So, refreshing and cool!

  18. Lora Morrow

    We really like the Kona Ice truck. Its a shaved ice truck where you get to put your own flavors on. My 3 year old likes to get Tiger Blood. Lol I think mostly for the name of it.

  19. Lora Morrow

    I should say we are more ofa shaved ice and popsicle family because my son and I can’t have dairy. If we do have an ice cream type treat it is either chocolate coconut milk ice cream (So Delicious) or chocolate ice cream sandwiches (Tofutti)

  20. Megan Algazzali

    I love taking graham crackers, spreading them with creamy peanut butter then topping them with cool whip. You then take another graham cracker and make a sandwich, and put it in the freezer until frozen. So delicious!

  21. Stacey

    Why does there have to be a favorite???? Can’t I just love them ALL!!! I kid!! I Kid!! It’s just hard to narrow them down. Since my b-day is in the smack dab middle of summer, I’ve always loved ice cream cakes. Nothing better!!

  22. Deb stoltz

    There is nothing better the a couple scoops of Mint chocolate chip ice cream on a waffle cone too cooll off with!:)

  23. Anything from a neighborhood ice cream truck! There’s something so nostalgic about hearing the music from the truck coming down the street on a summer night.

  24. Maria S.

    My favorite ice cream treat is a soft serve chocolate-vanilla twist cone with sprinkles. I only get it in the summer and I look forward to it.

  25. Rachel

    I love ALL ice cream treats but my favorite is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s! I love how target has all the new core flavors πŸ™‚

  26. Marie

    I don’t know if this counts, but I absolutely LOVE those frozen fruit bars with the chunks of real fruit in them! SO GOOD and refreshing!

  27. Michelle

    I LOVE me some softserve icecream! A chocolate and vanilla swirl cone is my fave. BUT…have you even tried the Sonic slushies with Nerds?!?! I die.

  28. Donna

    My kids and I make ice cream bites. We take a teaspoon of ice cream, roll it in sprinkles, rice krispies, chocolate chips-we can be very creative! and then dip it in magic shell or chocolate syrup and put it back in the freezer for a bit to harden … YUM!

  29. Courtney

    My ideal summer ice cream treat is a good old fashion milkshake. As a kid, our local ice cream parlor made a toasted marshmallow shake that was always my favorite.

  30. Melinda

    I really love peanut butter chocolate ice cream with Reese’s peanut butter chocolate shell on top. I eat it right out of the carton. So good!!

  31. Nancy

    First off? Ice cream is year round for me. I’d have to say my favorite treat is a Peanut Butter Bash from Dairy Queen. We have one within walking distance of our house. Pretty dangerous locale!! Thanks for the giveaway.

  32. Ashley P

    My favorite ice cream treat is Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. My favorite are the cookies and cream and the mint chocolate chip.

  33. Kristen

    I love the Magnum ice cream bars and Haagen Dazs ice cream bars. Double chocolate is usually my fave but I recently tried the salted caramel flavor with milk chocolate and it is to die for!

  34. Rola

    Next to anything rhubarb, fav summer treat is anything ice cream, and Magnum bars are without a doubt at the top of the list….so creamy and love the crunch of the outside layer of yum!!!!

  35. Gail McMurray

    I love the Fruttare ice cream treats, the orange or the strawberry are amazing. They are so refreshing when it is hot.

  36. Marcia

    Anyone besides me remember Nutty Buddy’s from the ice cream truck? I’d like to hear the bells on that truck right about now……….

  37. Kristie

    My absolute favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream.

    I saw in the comments there are Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike bars. How did I not know this? Yumm!

  38. M. Weber

    I don’t know if it would be my favorite ice cream now, but I certainly have fond memories of the ice cream truck coming through our neighborhood when I was a kid and running to get my push-up. Now I always crave soft serve vanilla at Dairy Queens nationwide! πŸ™‚

  39. Sara L

    Bubblegum ice cream on a cake cone with sprinkles. I know, I sound like I’m seven years old, but it is my all time favorite

  40. Claudia Blum

    My all time favorite summer ice cream treat is the DRUMSTICK with nuts of course!! My mouth is watering just thinking about eating one…yum yum πŸ˜€

  41. Kathleen

    I have discovered, and now hoard, the Skinny Cow Salted Caramel Pretzel Bar which is covered in Dark Chocolate. They are absolutely delicious! Wish they were bigger……….

  42. Pamela T.

    While I usually gravitate to any & everything chocolate, I recently discovered the Fruttare Bananas & Milk Bars and I am OBSESSED!!! It’s like banana cream pie on a stick!! Delicious!

  43. Kelly Gale

    My favorite ice cream is vanilla with Hersey’s chocolate syrup and spanish peanuts. My grandpa used to make this treat for me and my sister.

  44. suzi

    my favorite used to be strawberry chief crunchies, but now that I am dairy free, I love making vanilla coconut sorbet. thanks for the chance!

  45. Alicia B

    I looove those Oreo ice cream sandwiches. In college, my dorm had a vending machine with those, and it was pretty much a study night must.

  46. Tabitha

    There are so many amazing summer ice cream treats! I do love Magnum bars but my favorite summer ice cream treat would probably have to be a flavored slush or shaved ice.

  47. Chrissy R.

    My absolute favorite ice cream treat in the summer is an M&M ice cream cone. Reminds me of being a kid and still just as awesome!!

  48. Madison

    I just discovered Magnum’s and they are HEAVENLY!! But my absolute favorite treat would have to be Rita’s Italian ice with custard.. OMG! If you haven’t been to Rita’s yet, RUN!! Get the Swedish fish Italian ice with vanilla custard and you’ll thank me later… πŸ™‚

  49. Jareca

    I love Cookies and Cream Ice Cream and Chocolate Ice Cream. Klondike has these Ice Cream Bars that have a White Chocolate shell and Cookies and Cream on the inside. I love those. I also love Fruit Bars.

  50. Robin Christine

    My favorite ice cream treat would be mint cookies and cream! Growing up my Dad and I would always go to the beach for the day and enjoy a mint ice cream cone for the ride home. Yummy!

  51. Karen P

    Ice cream is my favorite treat. I love drumsticks, dark cherry & coconut in a sugar cone, banana splits, a good thick milkshake, a scoop of vanilla over blackberry cobbler..oh I could go on and on!

  52. Denise Smith

    Definitely a Klondike bar! I love trying to pop the top layer of chocolate off in as big of a piece as I can (forget about doing that on the bottom, too hard!).

  53. Sue

    Mint chocolate followed in close second by Rocky Road. Love the smooth creaminess of the ice cream and the crunch of stuff in it!

  54. S. I.

    I love the snickers ice cream bars but my favourite homemade ice cream is toasted pecan.Or Nutella. Or mocha chip. Or strawberry. Or mint.I love it all. Can’t wait to try Magnums, I never have.

  55. Paige

    I love the strawberry shortcake ice cream bars. There’s also a food truck where I live that makes homemade ice cream sandwiches…you get to pick the cookie flavors and ice cream flavor, yum!!

  56. Kadee

    I truly can’t say no to ice cream in any form or flavor! But I just tried that Hazed and Confused from Ben and Jerry’s…….so divine!

  57. Amy Morrison

    My favorite ice cream treat is an It’s It!! They are made in San Francisco and only found on the West Coast! They are yummy!

  58. Elines Acevedo

    Do I have to pick just one?! I love pretty much anything chocolatey like Dove bars or magnum bars, or the simple but classic drumstick! If im thirsty though, a fruit popsicle, preferably rasberry or lemon/lime is my choice.

  59. terry d

    Chocolate custard with peanut butter sauce topped with chocolate malted powder, whipped cream and a cherry!!!!!!! yummmmmmyyyyyyyyy

  60. Melanie N

    The mint chocolate chip Klondike squares have been a staple in my freezer for the last couple of years-they are the perfect balance of chocolate crunch with my favorite ice cream!

  61. Anne

    Although I have an ice cream maker and know how to use it, my favorite summertime ice cream treat is a soft-serve twirl, preferably vanilla and black raspberry, in a sugar cone. It’s a guilty pleasure!

  62. Alisha

    I’m jumping on the Drumstick bandwagon. I always save the chunk of chocolate from the bottom of the cone to eat last. Mmmm.

  63. Jamie

    I am an ice cream addict! My latest favorite we just discovered this week…homemade snickerdoodles with blueberry ice cream sandwiched between. It is SO good.

  64. TammySue Davis

    We love homemade ice cream sandwiches, made with big soft pecan, chocolate chip Cookies and vanilla bean ice cream. Mmmm mmm sounds so good I may have to make a batch tomorrow.

  65. Klondike bars are my favorite! And I’m loving the Reese’s Cup flavor. SO good. I’ve always had a soft spot for Klondike bars because I remember loving them when I was little and calling them “Polar Bars” I’m not really sure where that came from, I’m guessing the bear on the label.

  66. Liz S.

    My favorite ice cream treat is any chocolate coated ice cream bar! Magnum and Klondike surely fit that description – yum!

  67. Oh my ice cream sandwich, I am probably THE biggest ice cream fan (atic) that there ever was and will be. Growing up in Wisconsin, it was kind of a rule to be. I can and do eat ice cream all year round however I will admit nothing is better than eating a giant bowl or huge waffle cone of homemade vanilla ice cream in the summer time πŸ™‚

  68. Meg G.

    There’s a cookie food truck outside my work…they have homemade cookies and ice cream = best ice cream sandwich!! Always a nice break from work πŸ™‚

  69. Debi Bulmer

    Favorite, as in one? OK, just one… The Neapolitan Klondike Bar. I LOVE the strawberry ice cream in there, and well then there is the chocolate ice cream, OH and the coating, and the vanilla to round it out… Oh thanks, now I have to go get one. Sad, I know but I’ll take one for the team. Step aside, or come with me!
