Top Ten Best Ice Cream Toppings


The Top Ten

1 Caramel

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'm licking caramel while I'm writing this! Caramel is sweet and thick, the perfect combination with ice cream and an everyday pleasure inside of chocolates. It goes on mocha's, coffee, and especially frappes! Caramel is and always will be the number one topping in the world! CARAMEL TO THE MAX!

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 Sprinkles

Of course, who doesn't like sprinkles? - BanjoZebra

the classic ice cream topping - moose4life19

Sprinkles make your ice cream more colorful.

4 Whipped Cream

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

You just can't have ice cream without whipped cream and then a cherry to top it off

5 Oreo

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..

6 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

Strawberries on ice cream is so awesome! This should be at the top of the list so please vote!

Strawberries are great on creamy vanilla ice cream!

Love them with anything!

10 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

Who doesn't like M&M right?

The Contenders

11 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

Definitely first choice

No but I bet it is bad

13 Chocolate Chips

So awesome easy and affordable

I love chocolate chips and espeicly on ice cream. I love vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips. It is so relaxing to kick back on a sunny day in the shade with vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips in it

So awesome I'm in love with it. Is so delicious to have

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

18 Butterscotch

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

Oh yea, butterscotch is great

19 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

I never try to put skittle on an ice cream but I think it will taste good - lovingicecreams
