Dr Pepper devotees, did you know that you can get a dessert topper that packs the flavor of your favorite soda?

It’s true! There’s a Dr Pepper Cherry Dessert Topper that can put a soda-pop twist on your favorite treats.

The obvious choice? You could drizzle this Dr. Pepper topper on ice cream. We’re picturing it as the perfect addition — a cherry on top, if you will — to a cherry-chocolate chunk ice cream. But it could level up your go-to ice cream staples like chocolate or vanilla, too.

Or get creative and swirl it into cake batter. Whip it into your cupcake frosting. Add it to homemade candy bark or bars. Mix it with confectioner’s sugar for a glaze on a cherry quick bread. Really, there are endless ways to satiate your sweet tooth!

Dr Pepper certainly has a devout fan base, and many of the 27 reviews rave about this syrup. One reviewer said: “I should have bought a case. I love this stuff on ice cream!” Another offered an interesting suggestion: “Try it on a fried Twinkie with a dusting of powdered sugar.”

But our favorite review was from a buyer who came up with this barbecue tip: “Awesome with Smoked pulled pork or baby back ribs as a glaze.” Genius, right?

There are other soda dessert toppers on Amazon, too.

Dr Pepper also has recipes on its site that incorporate the soda, including a Three Bean Salad with green beans, yellow beans and kidney beans and Dr Pepper used in the dressing and a Dr Pepper chili recipe, too.

Who knew you could enjoy Dr Pepper in so many ways?
