National Ice Cream Day: Five Favorite Ice Cream Toppings Found in a Vending Machine


There’s nothing quite like the perfect ice cream sundae on a hot summer day. In honor of National Ice Cream month, and upcoming National Ice Cream Day on July 21, we want to share some of our favorite ice cream toppings, all of which can be found in Canteen’s vending machines, Avenue C micro markets, or our pantry provisions catalog.

  1. Fruit: Our Avenue C micro markets provide an extended selection of fresh and pre-packaged fruit. Sliced bananas, apples, or seasonal berries make a refreshing ice cream topping, perfect for a healthy dessert or summer afternoon snack. Your vending machine or micro market may also offer fruit cups and fruit salads, for a mixed fruit topping that will go great on ice cream or sorbet.
  2. Granola, Muesli, or Cereal: Opt for a healthier choice from one of our 2bU machines or Avenue C micro markets. Most granola fits Canteen’s Choice Plus criteria, and provides a sweet, crunchy topping for any ice cream flavor. Try a cinnamon granola with vanilla ice cream and apple slices for an apple cinnamon sundae, or take your pick from any number of additional granola, muesli, or cereal options.
  3. Nuts: Choose from peanuts, almonds, a mixed nuts variety, or even go for a package of trail mix for the perfect sweet and salty combination, with a little crunch.
  4. Candy: Treat yourself to your ideal ice cream sundae by chopping up your favorite candy bar or sprinkling packaged candy over any ice cream flavor. Whether you’re craving something chocolaty, chewy, or both, our vending machines are sure to have everything it takes to satisfy your sweet tooth.
  5. Soda: Make it a float with root beer, cream soda, or any other beverage that goes well with your choice of ice cream flavor. Or, consider a coffee float for breakfast! It’s never too early for this variation on a root beer float – at least not on National Ice Cream Day.

With our broad selection of vending and refreshment services products, there are dozens more ice cream toppings to choose from. If you’re a Canteen vending or refreshment services customer, all you need to do is provide the ice cream and you can have an ice cream sundae party in your workplace, complete with everyone’s favorite toppings right out of your vending machine, micro market, or pantry.

Our vending and refreshment services offerings include much more than ice cream toppings. We offer healthy vending, complete meals, office coffee services, and even office supplies.
