I was surprised to discover at the grocery store that these products exist. You can now purchase them online: Orange Crush Topper and Dr. Pepper Cherry Topper

First off, yes, these are kind of knock-offs of Magic Shells, although it looks like these are just syrup and don’t harden. Now I love Dr. Pepper, it’s my favorite soda. But the thought of Dr. Pepper syrup on ice cream just doesn’t work and I think we can all agree on that. So it’s interesting that Dr. Pepper would still try and attach its name to this product, which is essentially just a cherry syrup. I’m a little torn on the Orange Crush one. Have you ever had an orange flavored syrup on ice cream? I haven’t. But I do know that I love creamsicles and creamsicle flavored sodas…so there’s that.

What do you think? Gross? Delicious? Anyone tried either of these?

    I haven’t tried either of these but the orange crush syrup sounds like it would be good used as just a little flavoring for a vanilla milk shake.

    I haven’t tried them, but I have looked at them longingly. I agree with Caitlin that the Orange Crush could be good in a milk shake. I think there is also root beer flavored.

    We just bought the Orange and I’m sorry unless you like chewing on OLD orange rinds and some sort of chemical you will NOT want this. I recommend a recall immediately.

    I absolutely agree with Dave. Not only does it taste like chemicals, it also has an almost gummy texture in your teeth when you eat it, like candy that’s gotten soft from heat.

    I have a whole bottle and am trying to figure out what to do with it. ๐Ÿ™

    The Crush topping makes AWESOME orange cream fudge….not so good on ice cream

    Happy to hear you read your comment on the fudge as I read all the discouraging comments before that. I just received my 6-pack of the Crush topping as that was the only way I come find it. Opened a bottle and took a little taste. I was sure that I had swallowed a dose of poison! Even with the very tiny taste I had, it took peanut butter crackers to get the horrible aftertaste out. But since I purchased it for the cream fudge and after your comment, I am hopeful that it will turn out good anyway…I definitely will not try it on ice cream ๐Ÿ™‚

    Where can I buy the Crush Orange Ice Cream Topping? I have looked in a couple of stores and have not had any luck? Thanks!

    The orange , used sparingly, is great. Makes vanilla ice cream into a creamcycle. The rootbeer is good but didn’t excite me. I am not a Dr Pepper fan so I won’t offer an opinion.

    Can you buy these syrups in Canada & where? I want to make the orange dreamsicle fudge.

    If I can find the Dr Pepper syrup, I plan to use it to make Dr Pepper ice cream! And if it just tastes like cherries, I will use it anyway! Hope it doesn’t taste like ordinary chemicals …
