Have a Sweet Summer!


Pittsburgh in the summer is never dull. With hockey playoffs underway, baseball season in full swing, concerts, festivals and more, there always seems to be something to do or somewhere to be. Keeping busy in the summer isn’t a challenge, but finding time to cool off and relax can be. When you need a little rest and relaxation, think Sinful Sweets!  

Whether you are headed to PNC Park or just enjoying the city, what is better on a hot day then a cold ice cream cone? Ice cream in great as a snack or a dessert. In a dish or in a cone, choose standard vanilla or chocolate or one of Perry’s Ice Creams seasonal sweet treats. You can even add your favorite candy as a topping, or have it blended into a thick, old-fashioned milkshake or malt.  Ice cream may be an old favorite, but it’s not the only summer treat we think you’ll enjoy.

Instead of cooling off you might be dreaming of vacationing on a hot  beach far away from the city or enjoying a day at the pool.  If you like the heat we have a variety of  tropical flavors that are the perfect mix of creamy chocolate and sweet fruit flavors. Think pineapple, mango, banana and coconut. From chocolate creams and fudge bars to white sand beaches, a trip to The Islands, at Pittsburgh Zoo & Aquarium we’ve got something you’ll love. .

Spending the day in the Steel City can take you from a festival, a boat ride on one of the three rivers, a theater event to a cookout or party. Be prepared with cupcakes for an easy dessert to take on the go.  Whether you choose a traditional red velvet cupcake or carrot cake, or something a little more unique like French toast crunch, Fruity Pebbles, or strawberry lemon you’re pick is sure to be a favorite.
