Sundae Poster Winner No. 3: Banana Blackout

Dilara Casey of Columbus, you are Winner No. 3 in our Summer of Gravel Sundae Poster series.

Your Banana Blackout sundae—Bananas + Honey ice cream, Salty Caramel Sauce, and Chocolate Blackout Gravel—not only is delicious, but your documentation via Vine really raises the bar. Your efforts have earned you a gorgeous commemorative poster.

And in a Summer of Gravel first, we’re giving Drew Tieman honorable mention for his ace use of a prop as an accoutrement. Check out his sundae, the Schrute, as in The Office‘s Dwight Schrute—Salty Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Extra-Bitter Hot Fudge Sauce (available only in shops), Shagbark Gravel, fresh-whipped cream, a waffle wedge, and a tiny pair of glasses that demands everyone’s respect around the office.

This all truly is some next-level Summer of Gravel action. Not only are the masses making sundaes that dazzle all the senses, now we’ve got sundae makers creating beautiful Vines of them and using props as accoutrements. Keep up the great work, everyone.

We’ll select another winner next week. To be eligible, make a sundae with the Gravel Collection at home or in our shops between now and the close of our shops at 11 p.m. (EST) next Thursday (June 27). Then, use our Gravel Photo Menu to check out all the other sundaes that are trending.

And once again, here’s how to Gravel—and document your creations—in our shops and in your home:

  • Choose your ice cream, sorbet, or frozen yogurt
  • Choose your sauce
  • Choose your gravel
  • Make it fancy with accoutrements (e.g. cherries, smoked almonds, whipped cream, waffle cone wedges, sprinkles)
  • Set up your backdrop (free in all shops and included with every Gravel Collection online)
  • Shoot it (or Vine it or Super 8 it or video cam it—whatever technology suits you)
  • Eat it
  • Tag it #jenisgravel
