#878 – Pod

My current ice cream topping of choice is pineapple and chocolate syrup. It’s a throwback to a sundae I would make for myself out of stuff we would commonly have in the house. As a kid I would also throw on shredded coconut but I guess I outgrew that part. What’s your favorite?

    I’m a simple man. Give me hot fudge and whipped cream and I’m happy.

  2. Shorty says:

    Ice cream optional.

  3. Suzi says:

    vanilla, with chocolate fudge topping.

    Funny, I used to love frozen peas as a child. Hated them cooked.

  4. Linzleh says:

    The cracking theme continues…poor Biff’s aching tooth! Frozen peas are not a dippin’ dots substitute.

  5. BDan says:

    I don’t know about on ice cream, but frozen peas are delicious by themselves. Try them! They’re not solid — just soft enough to crunch, like a piece of popsicle, and sweet. I used to eat them a lot as a kid.

  6. LazerWulf says:

    I’m not a huge chocolate fan, so I usually stick to the fruits: strawberry, pineapple, cherry. However, if I’m not in a fruity mood, I go with caramel and marshmallow sauce.

  7. i.half4 says:

    Chocolate dust. It’s the little bits that break off from the tops of chocolate chips. They used to sell it at the Ambrosia factory store, until the factory moved out of downtown. The new store they opened up had no clue how to get the stuff.

    I like to put some ice cream on my ice cream. Maybe if I’m feeling extravagant, I’ll put it in a bowl.

  9. Fafnir13 says:

    Some crumpled pecans and maple syrup on vanilla ice cream. Mmmmmm…..

  10. Big fan of too many webcomics says:

    Gotta go with caramel on vanilla. Amazing.

  11. JeeBs says:

    It sounds weird, but top quality olive oil on vanilla ice cream. I read it in a magazine, and its AWESOME. Really. Try it.

  12. ZeoViolet says:

    Chocolate syrup and peanuts, or walnuts.

    Unfortunately certain allergies of mine prevent me from eating ice cream more than say, once a year.

  13. Amanda says:

    Hot fudge and strawberry sauce. Yum!

  14. Nilly says:

    Heh, I mainly agree with Shorty; I could eat just the fudge at times.

  15. I try not to have a favorite, so I can try lots of different things. I like the idea of crushed pineapple and coconut. Only I’ll toast the coconut first. 🙂 You should try that sometime.

  16. baughbe says:

    Steak, medium rare

  17. RJT says:

    Peanut Butter Sauce, Pineapple and Hot Fudge – maximum!

  18. Amy says:

    Hot fudge on cookies ‘n cream ice cream. If the cookies ‘n cream isn’t available, add crushed Oreos to the topping. Gotta have the cookies. 😀

  19. Solace says:

    There are toppings for ice cream? I thought the secret was to have stuff inside the ice cream.

  20. MaskedMan says:

    Butterscotch syrup and whipped cream. With a cherry.

    Or a dash of triple sec and a dusting of cardamom over high-quality vanilla ice cream. Decadent!

    I’m going to try that… I may be hunting you down, later!

  21. Karen says:

    Marshmallows were always a favourite for me because they freeze and get a really interesting texture. But the classic combo of hot fudge and salty peanuts is hard to beat.

  22. Lirleni says:

    not really a topping, but:
    I love making a float with chocolate ice cream and Mt. Dew. (I’ve been doing it since was a kid>30 years ago.)

  23. sco3tt says:

    That’s WAY funnier than it looked on my phone when I couldn’t read the caption!

    Hey, Chris, can you use a bigger font in the comic panel? My phone shows the picture ok but it scrambles the font. I mean, it’s hard enough to enjoy your comic with all the screaming kids on the bus distracting me, sometimes I even forget to use the bus’s turn signals. Of course, maybe if I didn’t get so drunk before starting my route, but man, all the horn blowing and kids yelling and unexplainable thumping from time to time on the underside of the bus, the LAST thing I need is a hard time reading, y’know?

    Thanks man!

  24. TheBeigeKnight says:

    I don’t know if this is a topping per se, but I’d go with root beer.

  25. Ulthor says:

    I like chocolate with cherries and hot fudge.

  26. beccity98 says:

    I like mint chocolate chip ice cream just by itself. Only baskin-robbin’s, though. They have chocolate shavings, rather than hard, frozen, tooth-breaking chips.

    On frozen yogurt, on the other hand, (the plain tart flavor, I go to the place where you self-serve, just get the yogurt, then go home and put on it cut-up fresh strawberries I’ve had sugar on for a while, so they’re strawberry-flavored syrup, too!

  27. fluffy says:

    I usually like my ice cream unadulterated, but when I do choose to adulterate it I usually use a fine dusting of cocoa powder (as in baking chocolate, not as in hot cocoa mix, that would be gross).

  28. Kasain says:

    i like to chop up frozen reese’s cups and put them on top of my ice-cream, or kit-kat bars ^^ so tasty, also, another thing that is super good, french fries and ice-cream ^^ dairy queen is a great place for this (or wendy’s… but that’s not quite ice-cream, lol) gotta eat it before the fries get cold and the ice-cream melts though >.<

  29. Radical Edward says:

    I like vanilla ice cream with peanut butter.

  30. Roborat says:

    dark chocolate and caramel.

  31. August says:

    Raspberry liquer. It’s all…fancy.

  32. weerd2normal says:

    well, i have a strange one, i like my vanilla ice cream with unflavored ramen noodles on it, and then with fudge, weerd, but hey, i am a strange man, i used to love my chery ice cream melted and mixed with root beer

  33. Tigergulp says:

    Fresh fruit over vanilla ice cream. Currently its mixed fruit. A tasty new sensation with every chomp! 🙂

  34. Chaos Kiwi says:

    Cool, food week!

  35. oingy boingy says:

    hah, this is the first time i’ve ever actually done something biff’s done. not for years, though, and now i’m wondering if i still like frozen peas on icecream!
    *ponders whether 3.42am is too late for trying this idea*
    *decides imitating biff in any way is not sensible!*

  36. Hershey says:

    I like loads of hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry on top of cookies ‘n cream ice cream c:

  37. dartigen says:

    I used to love drinking chocolate and whipped cream. Now I just have it plain, though I like to mix flavors. Rum & raisin, cookies & cream and chocolate, possibly with a little fudge sauce.

    Alternatively, crushed toffee & slivered almonds.

  38. The Dustin says:

    Toppings are only for ice cream that you don’t think is good by itself. My preference is simply mixing all three flavors of Neapolitan, because all three combined tastes better than the combined individual flavors of all three.

  39. Night Mare says:

    Oh, no. I remember the time I learned why they put _mini_ chocolate chips on ice cream.

  40. Blitz Jones says:

    I once had a gynormous ice cream– 7 scoops of different flavors (bad idea) and choice of 3 toppings/sauces. I picked all chocolate (worse idea). The deal was if I ate it all in a half hour it was free.

    I owe my friend $7.50 for it.

  41. Lynn says:

    I eat frozen peas all the time in summer. I love them. Yum yum.

    Gummy bears and Oreo bits on rainbow ice cream.
