Legend has it that in 1881, an ice-cream parlour owner in Wisconsin, USA, served a dollop of ice cream with chocolate syrup poured over it. This dish, that came to be created rather accidentally, was originally sold only on Sundays. And this is how the world of desserts got a glorious addition – the sundae.


Ever since, sundaes have become synonymous with celebration. It could be a family get-together, a meet-up with long lost friends or an impromptu party for having aced the exams; sundaes have added sweetness to a lot of occasions. Also, it’s not like you always need a reason to treat yourself to this delightful dessert. Sometimes you just want to indulge your sweet tooth or add that dose of excitement to a slow day, and what better than a sundae to do this for you!

If all that you just read has already got you dreaming about sundaes, this next bit of information is sure to transport you to sundae heaven. Café Coffee Day has unveiled four sundaes -- Toffee Surprise, Cocoa Mocha, Rasgulla Royale and Cocoa Fudge. With generous scoops of ice-cream, rich sauces, nuts, cookies, whipped cream, popcorn and hot fudge, they are aptly called ‘Over The Top Sundaes’. Creamy and superior in texture and flavour, these sundaes are a sheer delight for your taste buds.

Let’s start with the Toffee Surprise sundae. It’s a combination of rich vanilla ice-cream on honey oat cookies, butterscotch nuts, toffee sauce, caramel popcorn, frothy whipped cream and a choco-stick. Did your eyes just light up? Wait till you see this video.

Cocoa Mocha brings together two all-time favourites - cocoa and coffee - and ups the yum quotient by several notches. Take cocoa fudge with an espresso twist on top of a crunchy cookie base. Top that with two scoops of ice-cream, whipped cream, a crispy choco-stick and you have a mouth-watering concoction right in front of you! Have a look.

If you have a weakness for Bengali sweets, then the Rasgulla Royale Sundae is just for you. It serves the classic roshogulla with three generous scoops of ice-cream, rich rasmalai syrup with frothy whipped cream, almond flakes and a choco-stick. This king-sized sundae sounds like the perfect tribute to one of India’s much-loved mithais.

Next up is Cocoa Fudge. This is a mixture of rich cocoa fudge and vanilla ice-cream with a layer of cocoa. Giving it that summer twist is mango juice with frothy whipped cream. A sprinkling of almond flakes and a choco-stick makes this sundae even more delectable.

Dessert specialists from India and Italy have brought their combined expertise to create the new ‘Over The Top Sundaes’ range. So head to your nearest Cafe Coffee Day, pick your favourite sundae and before you finish it off, make sure you Instagram a few pictures. After all, it’s always a good idea to spread delight!
