Top Ten Best Ice Cream Toppings


The Top Ten

1 Caramel

Caramel is good

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!

Real delicious, tastes great with vanilla icecream.

2 Hot 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.

Hot fudge goes with every flavor there is if it is either coffee or vanilla it goes well with any flavor

3 Chocolate Syrup

I love it! It's so delicious! Honestly, you should buy it! I prefer chocolate syrup over most toppings, because it tastes yummy with the ice-cream.

Is that not like chocolate fidge

Chocolate is the best thing ever that was ever made by man kind! It's so good

When I was little I COVERED my ice cream in the stuff and mixed it.

4 Oreo

I'd LOVE it on top of ice cream! Oreos are my favourite cookie, so yes please! - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy


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!

I love cookies and cream and when it is cold, it is delicious.

5 Whipped Cream

This is the best! Creamy and sweet with great texture, this is a topping I wish to always put right on top of my ice-cream, no matter what flavour. - CherylS

I will be putting it on 4 like 1 minute - jodiph

Number 6! Whipped cream is a classic, always served with ice cream or pie. Every single kid grew up with whipped cream and even now, when you order a dessert, "whipped cream? " is the first thing that they ask! The soft, creamy texture goes great with hard ice cream and the saying "pretty please with a cherry on top" revolves around whipped cream! VOTE WHIPPED CREAM AND BRING BACK JUSTICE

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

8 M&M's

M&M's are the best toppings in my opinion. It gives a nice chocolatey taste mixed with sweet vanilla. It kind of changes the taste of the vanilla

I love m&m's... They taste so good over almost all types of ice cream or even frozen yogurt! Love them! It's a great topping for all chocolate lover!

a different way of having chocolate toppings - moose4life19

They change the flavor of the ice cream when you let them sit for a bit and they also make it taste good

9 Strawberries

Strawberries are great on everything!

It is a super topping.I like strawberries.

Strawberries taste the best with ice cream! Especially chocolate ice cream! The sweetness of strawberries and chocolate mixed together... YUMMY!

Okay, who's idea was it to put strawberries on the bottom? You people obviously don't know what strawberries are. If you did, I think that strawberries would be #1 so... yeah, vote for strawberries

10 Strawberry Sauce

In my opinion, this is really good by it self. But it still tastes good with other toppings. Have you EVER tried vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce, gummy bears, whipped cream, nuts, and Oreo?! ! - dipperpinesfangirl618

Strawberry sauce is basic
But very popular
Everyone loves it
Even if they don't like strawberries

Sweet strawberry sauce sitting on your ice cream
Who can resist
I love strawberries
Definitely first choice

It's so good it adds colour and goes well with any flavor of ice cream.

15 Butterscotch

A true classic

This deserves to beat many toppings, including gummy bears and sprinkles. For those who do not know, butterscotch tastes similar to caramel but has a slightly salty taste, making for an astounding salty-sweet combination.

Butterscotch is tots my top favorite!

You can butter my scotch

16 Maple Syrup

Maple syrup and brown sugar and adding cinnamon makes it real good!

Hmm, more of a pancake or waffle flavour, but still nice and sweet.

Maple syrup is (in my opinion) THE BEST for ice cream

It was good, but make sure you don't add too much chocolate chips, else it will not taste as good.

21 Cherry Sauce
22 Skittles


Skittles are hard to chew without ice cream. Why would you mix them together anyway? Have you ever had too many skittles and then felt like you were gonna be sick... And then you did get sick?!?!?!

maybe not as popular as it should be - moose4life19

I don't love skittles but I am covinced that they taste good on ice cream.

I like having them in my ice cream since they taste amazing

43 Sugar
44 Peanut Butter

How is peanut butter so low on the list!? Top peanut butter sauce on top of chocolate, vanilla, rocky road...really any ice cream flavor except mint or pistachio. The best combo is on top of Friendly's forbidden's like a dark chocolate peanut butter cup!

Peanut butter is the best

My favourite, whip the peanut butter with a tablespoon of icecream to make a slurry to spoon over the top.

I LOVE peanut butter! Best possible topping on ice cream, ESPECIALLY when it's peanut butter ice cream! PEANUTBUTTERCEPTION! With Peanut Butter cups and Reese's Pieces and Butterfinger... I'm addicted...
