Kinjal Jasani, Contributing Writer

Summer. It reminds us of happy memories. For some, those memories include going to the beach and eating funnel cake on the boardwalk. For others, the best experience is sitting around a toasty campfire, cooking food and eating gooey s’mores. However, there is a world of desserts that you have yet to try! Make the most out of your summer by trying the following foods:

Kulfi: This is a traditional Indian ice cream that comes on a stick in various flavors, such as mango and malai. Typically a street food in India during the hot summers, it can be found in many Indian grocery stores in the U.S. as well as in Indian restaurants.

Fudge: Fudge is a traditional treat commonly bought on the Jersey shore. It can be salty or sweet and there are many different flavors to choose from. This will be a unique new taste for your sweet tooth!

Watermelon: This juicy delicacy, although a common treat, is always a good option for summer desserts. If you are looking for healthier foods to satisfy your sweet tooth, watermelon is for you!

Cannolis: This delicious Italian treat consists of a hard shell filled with cool, sweet cream and chocolate chips. It is the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day, and ensures that your pastry craving is satisfied!

Cliff’s Ice Cream: Cliff’s ice cream is a family-owned ice cream shop located on Route 46 in Ledgewood. Ranked as one of the best ice cream shops in America by several newspapers, it is especially famous for its “Skyscraper,” which is an enormous mountain of soft ice cream. Cliff’s has endless flavors to try from —  you won’t want to miss it!

Mousse: Another creamy dessert to try is mousse: a cool and delectable dessert that has a perfect fluffy texture. Mousse comes in various flavors and can be topped with fruit or chocolate. But it is not a low calorie dessert, so eat it sparingly.
