5 Fun & Interesting Ice Cream Toppings (Slideshow)


Summer is officially here. And you know what that means: it’s time to get used to the sound of the ice cream truck music, and the throngs of screaming kids ready to fork over their allowance for ice cream sandwiches or ice pops shaped like cartoon characters. As delicious as those treats are, though, us adults usually have a more sophisticated palate than that. So it only makes sense that we upgrade our ice cream for something more, well, adult. Well we’ve got you covered here! Check out five unusual and interesting ice cream toppings after the kids are in bed!

When I was a kid, I used to tune my scoops if there was only plain vanilla ice cream avalaible. My favorite was crumbed cookies mixed into the ice cream. Now that I'm old, I don't like ice cream toppings of any kind anymore. I find these suggestions interesting anyhow, I think I'm going to test berries with balsamico as a dessert!

Most of these toppings are a bit "out there" for me, but I'll take caramel on almost anything!

Thanks for the unusual toppings. Might have to sneak one of these in on my kids and see what they think. Would be a true test of tatse.
