Creative Pairing: Snickers Ice Cream Bars with Cream Sherry

November 28, 2023

One of the most enduring pairings at Fruit Wine Co has been the unexpected pairing of Snickers Ice Cream bars with cream Sherry. It's a little off-kilter, but that's why we love it. This demonstrates a really beautiful flavor match. The peanut butter ice cream's nuttiness and earthiness pair beautifully with the oxidative, toasty quality of this ever-so-mildly-sweet Sherry.

Sherry is a fortified wine from the Jerez region in southern Spain. Much of the Sherry produced today is dry, and they typically make for wonderful pairings when served alongside Spanish bar snacks like tinned fish, Jamón, and olives. But this one from Gutierrez-Colosia is a bit sweet, and wow does it deliver on flavor! As you take a bite of the soft peanut ice cream and the smooth caramel in the bar, you'll have that flavor enhanced by a sip of this complex, nutty and delightful Sherry. Want to class this pairing up a bit? Replace the Snickers bars with organic frozen KIND bars–the kind with peanuts in them, of course.

Find this wine is at Fruit Wine Co and pair it with the bar of your choice.
