There are some moments in life that are too good. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most, like the first sunny, warm day after a long, cold winter. Or visiting home after you've been homesick, jumping in bed after an exhausting day, and, of course, when you get a fresh ice cream cone. What is it about ice cream that makes any situation better? If you're having a bad day, good day, or anything in between, it'll probably make you happier. (OK, yes, it's probably the sugar rush, but still.) When you post your favorite ice cream photos this year, you’ll need some sweet ice cream captions to go along with it.

Ice cream pics make the best summer Instagram posts. They're bright, they're sweet, and it's impossible not to smile when you see it. Whether you prefer your ice cream doused in sprinkles or piled so high you'd never finish it, nothing looks more fun in a picture than your sweet treat. Trust me, I'm guilty of posting a few ice cream Instagram pics now and then, too.

So when you head out for ice cream, don't forget about this list of caption options. The ice cream captions are endless, especially when you consider the emoji possibilities to pair with them.
