Best Candy for Ice Cream Toppings

When it comes to ice cream, many people are just fine having it straight up! But these is a way to make the treat a tasty and special occasion by adding your favorite candy as a topping. We have surveyed our customers, reviewed our sales order history, and complied the following list of our ice cream topping best sellers. Is yours on the list?


Nestles Crunch Candy bar Pieces

Nestle Crunch Bar pieces

Yes, creamy milk chocolate with crisped rice, all broken into little pieces, added to a dish of soft,melting vanilla ice cream. Let it sit for a while and the chocolate will get soft too. For a variation take a whole Nestles Crunch candy bar, break off a piece and use it as a spoon. Yummy!

Chopped Up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Chopped Up Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Yes, there are many variations of the iconic candy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups available, and you just may see the name again later in our list ( no peeking ). The fine people at Hershey's bring us this topping. We are sure their development team went through cases of Reese's before perfecting just the right way to create the pieces ideal for an ice cream topping. Of course there are the cookie recipes to consider...

Redskins Peanuts

Redskin Peanuts

It is documented that peanut skins contain fatty acids valuable for nutrition. And we thought it was just the ice cream that was nutritious! Either way, a little something sweet once in a while ( daily! ) is good for the soul. We think so!

Neon Gummi Worms

Sour Neon Gummi Worms

These are best when you mix them deep into your ice cream, and then fish them out covered in soft serve. Our customers like the neon worms, but you can go with the plain old gummi worm if you like.

Heath Candy Bar Bits

Heath Candy Bar Bits

Perfected by the Heath brothers in 1928, this milk chocolate English toffee bar is a classic. Crumble one up into pieces, spoon it on your ice cream, and it's pure taste enjoyment!

Rainbow Nerds Candy

Rainbow Nerds Candy

This makes any dessert beyond cool. The bright colors and the tangy, crunchy taste creates an awesome ice cream sundae. Who ever said being a nerd wasn't cool.

Gummi Bears

Gummi Bears

With all of the flavors of Gummi Bears available, you are sure to enjoy a handful of them mixed in with your ice cream. How about a few in the bottom of the cup, add a layer of soft-serve, sprinkle in a few more bears, add a layer of soft-serve, add a few more bears, sprinkle on maybe some chocolate syrup.....

Reese's Pieces

Reese's Pieces

Yes - these are still a fan favorite! Just ask ET - or phone ET. Reese's Pieces just make everything better. That crunchy candy shell with the peanut butter inside always brings a smile to your face.

Sprinkles AKA Jimmies

Sprinkles AKA Jimmies

So what IS the difference between sprinkles and jimmies? Actually they’re the same thing, it just depends on where you’re from. If you’re a resident of Philadelphia, Boston and many parts of New England, you might ask for jimmies if you want those tiny cylindrical candies on your ice cream. New Yorkers and a majority of other people call them sprinkles. So where does the jimmies name come from? Popular legend has it that the Just Born candy company in Bethlehem, PA began producing sprinkles in the 1930s and, since a gentleman named Jimmy ran the sprinkles machine, the product was naturally nicknamed after its maker. Some people maintain that sprinkles are multicolored and jimmies specifically refer to the chocolate variety.

M&M Mini Pieces

Mini M&Ms Candy

Voted the best ice cream topping by our customers, Mini M&Ms taste great and on ice cream they crunch, then melt in your mouth. Are they small enough to not contain any calories - sorry that won't fly! If you have some left over, either get more ice cream or bake them in a pan of brownies!
