The Top Ten

It melts in your mouth, with a sweet taste that will go perfectly with any ice cream! My kids LOVE caramel and pile it high on their cups! We love caramel because it is so inexpensive and delicious!
I love caramel as my ice cream topping... ! They're so bomb! Chocolates are good too, but if I have to choose between the two, CARAMEL ALL THE WAY!
I love caramel because my skin is that color laugh out loud! Caramel is really popular, and lots of people love it, they put it on apples, ice cream, and a bunch of differnt things, they also have a candy called "Caramels" Its really, really the number one
[Newest]Caramel is the best.. I can't eat ice cream with out it😁

2Hot Fudge
Hot fudge is WAY more popular than caramel! This is a kid speaking, but hot fudge tastes better and goes with more flavors of ice cream! In my opinion, hot fudge is delicioso!
Hot Fudge for me is the most perfect companion for ice cream in the whole universe! Its rich and luscious flavor compliments the creamy, dainty texture of any ice cream flavor, and is a necessity for any ice cream sundae! Anyone can agree that hot fudge is one of the only needed toppings for ice cream, and truly brightens your frozen treat and makes it well worth having! :^D
Taste nice because hot fudge is hot and ice cream is cold so it's a perfect combination.
[Newest]Hot fudge is the best

Whipped Cream has great texture and great sweetness. It is very yummy, and when put on ice cream it melts in your mouth! I love whipped cream

Plus, it is yummy to most people with a sweet tooth.
[Newest]My number two pick! So tasty!

Mm! I love the taste of yummy oreo's on top of ice cream like vanilla, also I like them in bubble tea also, although, Even though this is a ice cream topping, some people like to have em alone like tons and tons of oreo's. I love to eat oreo's and time, any where, and they are selling pretty good inside stores. I LOVE OREO'S!
Oreos should be first. They're so delicious. They are definitely the best cookie/biscuit EVER. They can be put in anything. I always put them in brownies. They're phenomenal! Especially the double stuff! They're twice as tasty! :D
I love oreos especially double stuffed! So delicious. Every one I know loves oreos and every time they go to the store, they can't pass them up..
