During every change of season, a chef somewhere is also changing their menu along with the season. That is how they keep things fresh and fun. Most people always look forward to the fall season because of fall flavors, and they will put them into just about any type of food or drink. Ever heard of Pumpkin Spice Latte? Yes, the most famous one. And it is pretty much the same for ice cream. Fall ice cream flavors have become quite the popular notion as well.
Cold desserts are still popular, even though it may not be summer any longer. The idea of a fall dessert usually has to do with warmth, comfort, and spices. It is no wonder that brown sugar, apple cider, or pecan pie are popular in the fall and winter. Apples are at their peak in the fall, like most nuts, although it is already evident that you can find fall products all year round.
Here are some of the delicious ice cream flavors for you to try this fall season. These are just easy to make at the comforts of your home. One tip you might love: add a splash of bourbon to your ingredients for an extra kick!
