Monday was the first day of school in our county, and I don’t think anyone in my family was quite ready to say goodbye to summer. It’s been a really fun summer for us! To end summer break with a bang, Grandma Laura and I threw an end of summer movie party on Sunday evening for my two nieces and some of their friends. We kept it simple by ordering pizzas and serving up a variety of Mars Ice Cream products for them to eat while watching the movie.
This is a partnered post with Mars Ice Cream and One2One Network.
This was my kind of ice cream party – minimal preparation and cleanup. I don’t think the girls would have enjoyed this movie party anymore had I spent all day fussing with making food and decorating.
Movie night is much more fun with ice cream!
It didn’t surprise me at all that most of the girls went for the big M&M’s Ice Cream Cookies. Some of them even went back for seconds to try something else.
When it comes to finding the perfect treat this summer, there’s only one “real” decision to make – real ice cream.
A good movie and good ice cream is the perfect combination for a fun movie night!
Unlike so many “imitation” ice cream products, Mars Ice Cream’s portfolio of frozen novelties pairs delicious, REAL ice cream with the delectable chocolate flavor of candy brands you know and love. Our end of summer movie party featured DOVEBAR® Ice Cream Bars, M&M’S® Brand Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich, SNICKERS® Brand Chocolate Ice Cream Bars, and TWIX® Ice Cream Bars.
Mars Ice Cream products make a great treat to enjoy during movie night – adding a tasty layer of fun to an already exciting event. Pick up your favorite flick and a box of Mars Ice Cream party tonight!
