Is ice scream ever really out of season? We pine for it 24-7-365, sometimes even late at night after we’ve been told to stop snacking and go to bed. For sweet tooths looking for a frozen fix, Häagen-Dazs is debuting four new sundaes inspired by international dessert classics.

Inspired by the Italian affogato, the vanilla bean espresso sundae weaves a ribbon of espresso through vanilla ice cream, then tops it with intense espresso syrup and a pouf of whipped cream. The spiced caramel biscuit sundae stars caramel ice cream dotted with bits of buttery biscuits, which gets crowned with banana slices, a dousing of warm caramel and whipped cream. For a more tropical twist, the coconut macaroon sundae takes coconut ice cream punched up with chewy macaron pieces, then adds a shower of strawberries and whipped cream. Last, but definitely not least, is the sweet-yet-subtly-savory salted caramel sundae. The sweet cream base is shot through with chocolate truffles and belts of salted caramel, then topped with a chocolate-dipped pretzel.

You can’t hear us, but we’re all screaming for ice cream right now.
