Funny you mention sundaes, I've often noticed hot fudge acts similarly to the icecream. Im sure its a bit different effect, probably the thin layer of melting icecream betwen the fudge and the solid icecream acts as a lubricant, but still, seems sorta the same.

I wonder if a thin coating like this inside a thermoplastic hose could increase hydrostatic pressure while using small HP pumps.
