ice cream cups with lids With the leaves turning those brilliant shades of gold, red, and brown, and sweater weather right at our doors, it's clear that fall is here. But just because the temperature has dropped, it doesn't mean that we should put away our ice cream cups and tasting spoons just yet!

Typically, June is the highest month of production for ice cream. But this fall, instead of stowing the cold sweet stuff in the back of the freezer until the great thawing of spring, ice cream companies and parlors alike are loading sample spoons with fall-inspired flavors that will have your heart feeling warm and cozy fall feelings.

Here are three seasonal ice cream flavors that will have the 90% of households who regularly indulge in ice cream still enjoying the frozen, sweet treat:

Pumpkin Pie
While vanilla ice cream is often a popular ice cream flavor to top a warm slice of pumpkin pie with, now you can skip the pie altogether and dig straight into the ice cream carton. Pumpkin pie ice cream gives you that creamy taste of pumpkin, combined with those warm, signature flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg that are so quintessentially fall. If you're still looking for a way to keep warm, try adding a scoop of this ice cream flavor into your morning coffee for an extra-special fall treat.

Gingersnap
Gingersnap cookies satisfy everyone's need for crunchy, yet slightly spicy fall treats. Now you can enjoy the flavor in your ice cream. Each creamy bite packs a punch of ginger, clove, and that lovely molasses-esque brown sugar warmth. For extra texture, try crumbling some gingersnap cookies over this frozen treat!

Rum Raisin
This classic ice cream flavor is especially popular during the fall season. The combination of rum, raisins, and spices elevate this ice cream to a belly-warming treat that pairs well with cakes, pies, coffees, or simply on its own.

Over the course of a single year, Americans will consume around 28.5 servings of ice cream. The best part of eating ice cream during the fall is that you don't have to worry about keeping that lid on those ice cream cups with lids. While ice cream cups with lids are indeed useful, ice cream won't melt as quickly during the chill of the fall!
