Not to be confused with the Korean dish made by boiling or steaming cow or pig's intestines that are stuffed with various ingredients, much like a blood sausage, but, rather Ice Cream Sundae!
The third Sunday in July is Sundae Sunday, at least according to Hershey's, who am I to argue?
Go make one yourself!
