Picture this: it’s the Summer of Love in 1967 and you’re eating a Ghirardelli hot fudge sundae while wearing a flower crown. Fast forward to now, and that’s exactly what you could be doing, because Ghirardelli is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Summer with its limited-edition Haight Ashberry Sundae (get it?). The decadent hot fudge sundae has seasonal berries and is topped with whipped cream and a Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Blueberry Square, and each sundae comes with a flower crown and heart-shaped sunglasses. The sundae’s punny name plays tribute to Haight-Ashbury, the San Francisco neighborhood known for its hippy influence and where the historic Summer of Love occurred in ’67. Ghirardelli isn’t the only San Francisco-based company offering a themed treat in celebration. Beloved ice cream shop Bi-Rite Creamery has introduced a Summer of Love ice cream flavor made with fennel pollen, blackberries, and hemp oil.
The Haight Ashberry Sundae is available at all Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shops nationwide, including the Ghirardelli Disney Springs location, for a limited time starting on June 19, so get it – and its summery accessories – while you can.
