Sugar and Plumm’s Earthquake in a Fishbowl

Ever wish you could have all of your favorite desserts at once? Sugar and Plumm will let you live that fantasy. Their Earthquake in a Fishbowl features key lime pudding, blackout cake, cheesecake, butterscotch pudding and vanilla, chocolate and salted caramel ice cream, with a dab of whipped cream on top. It’s like your favorite dessert menu getting hit with a 7 on the Richter scale. It is also served in a big fishbowl (note the name) large enough for the whole family to enjoy. That is if the kids are willing to share.
