A Movie and a Treat: Our Favorite Summer Pairings

It’s almost summer, which means it’s time for pools, sun, surf, sunscreen, and barbecues. Get excited about the summer months ahead by popping in these classic summer movies and pairing them with a cool dessert.

1. Dirty Dancing®
Two kids from opposite sides of the tracks meet one summer at a Catskills resort in this irresistibly charming, romantic tale.
Pair it with: You’ll love this decadent duo as much as you’ll love Baby and Johnny: Skinny Cow Best of Both Swirleds Sandwich

2. Wet Hot American Summer
This cult-classic summer-camp parody is packed with celebrities including Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, and Christopher Meloni (a.k.a. Elliot from Law & Order SVU).
Pair it with: a classic summer-camp treat, s’mores!

3. Adventureland
Jesse Eisenberg plays a recent college graduate who gets a job at a local amusement park after his plan to backpack through Europe falls through. The soundtrack is amazing, and Kristen Stewart stars as his love interest.
Pair it with: Bring the amusement park home with some cotton-candy cupcakes.

4. Now and Then
This film brings together four childhood friends as they reminisce about their life-changing summer of 1970. Demi Moore narrates, and a young Christina Ricci stars.
Pair it with: a dessert you can eat while riding your bike around the neighborhood like the girls from Now and Then, such as a Skinny Cow chocolate with fudge ice cream cone.
