As happy as we were to have a day off, Labor Day weekend made us realize it’s about time to wave goodbye to these summer staples.

1. Popsicles just don’t taste as sweet when the temps turn down.

2. Goodbye, beach hair. Hello, sleek strands.

3. Sure, you can take a road trip any time of year, but the summer road trip is a classic.

4. ‘Tis the season for boats to hibernate.

5. You may have to wait awhile to see your blooming garden again, but at least you have new riding boots.

A little insider knowledge from the Rue offices? We. Love. Food. Seriously, it’s right up there next to fashion. To celebrate this week’s Sunday Supper, we surveyed the masses for all-time favorite ice cream toppings. Read what our dessert savants had to say, then take our poll and tell us yours.

“Grape-Nuts on vanilla ice cream. So simple, and tastes like malted milk.”
–Michael D., VP, Audience Development & Syndication

“Fruity Pebbles. Pile them over fro-yo with just one sour gummy worm, and I am instantly in third grade again!”
–Kelly A., Feature Writer

“Peanut butter cups! Chocolate + peanut butter + ice cream… do I really need to say anything more? SO. GOOD.”
–Chrissy M., Copywriter

“Oreos add great texture and never get soggy.”
–Lindsay L., Editor

“There’s a small, family-owned ice cream shop in my hometown that I go to every chance I get. Vanilla with rainbow sprinkles equals summer all year long.”
–Jennifer M., Event Producer

“Bing cherries. Buy them canned, combine in a skillet with a bit of corn starch and brandy, then set it all on fire. (Seriously.) It’s an elegant – not to mention surprisingly easy – way to dress up vanilla or chocolate.”
–Joanna B., Editor

“Coconut, hands down. Because it’s sweet, creamy, and island-inspired. Plus there are health benefits, right? Right.”
–Abigail K., Editor

“Gummy worms and Oreos. Call me nostalgic, but after my first grade teacher introduced that dynamic duo to our class, there was no turning back. (And I just really loved first grade.)”
–Sarah S., Copywriter

“I love raspberries so much that sometimes I put ice cream on them.”
–Sami S., Junior Designer

“Teddy’s Super Chunky Peanut Butter because it adds amazing crunch and flavor to vanilla ice cream.”
–Kasey R., Event Producer

We can’t deny our sweet tooth any longer. Here’s to a summer full of sugary treats.

1. These Popsicles are a real step up from the ones with gumball eyes.

2. Ice cream. A totally viable summer dinner option.

3. Tip: Don’t forget to keep this fudge in the fridge.

4. Shaved ice is so underrated. It tastes delicious – and looks even better.

5. What is cotton candy even made of? Never mind. We don’t want to ruin the magic.
