Serving ice cream in parties is currently growing in popularity.

So yes, if you happen to be an ice cream lover and have an ice cream cart on board, then it’s definitely a must to bring this ice cold treat to your guests in your upcoming gathering.
While indeed the most popular ice cream flavours remain to be strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla, people are still looking for other varieties, just so to retain their interest in the said dessert. You should likewise take this into consideration, especially when you want to impress your guests with your ice cream servings.
If you are currently looking for trending ice cream flavours, here are the ones to check out:

Yes, pumpkin spice is all the rage these days now that the Western countries are welcoming the autumn season. If you are a big fan of all things autumn, then this flavour suits you best. Pumpkin offers a mildly sweet and tangy flavour, while the spices give off an additional kick that complements its natural sweetness.
You may have to order pumpkin spice ice cream in advance or ask a supplier to come up with a specially-made recipe for it, as the said flavour is still fairly new especially in Asian markets.
- Cherry Chocolate.
Cherries and chocolates are often teamed up in ice cream servings, but in rather separate ways. Cherries are topped either on chocolate ice cream or on vanilla ice cream then drizzled with chocolate syrup. However, you can now order ice cream with cherries and chocolate flavours combined.
Cherry chocolate, or sometimes referred to as black forest when it comes to cakes, is becoming an immensely popular flavour in ice cream. While sometimes referred to as a romantic dessert, it is also well loved by people of all ages. You may want to serve this in a form of parfait especially when you intend to make your party a bit more formal.

Meanwhile, if you are looking for a fruity take on the casual ice cream, then you may go for a fruit salad option. Fruit salad ice cream is popular in various Asian countries, wherein tropical fruits are mixed with vanilla ice cream. You may choose the kinds of fruits to add on to your ice cream servings, with the most popular being pineapple, papaya, mixed berries, and even coconut shreds.
Mango is probably one of the most popular fruits in the world, and even if it is harvested during the summer, it remains sought after throughout the rest of the year. And yes, mango flavours work well with ice cream.
