Vanilla is ranked the most popular ice cream flavor, followed by chocolate. Of course, ice cream toppings are a must! Hot fudge is the most popular ice cream topping, which is only fitting for your traditional ice cream sundae.
Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, rated number seven for most favored flavors, was introduced by the Ben & Jerry’s Factory in Burlington, Vermont. Oh, and we should mention that our Price Chopper and Market 32 locations sell a variety of Ben & Jerry’s!
Ice Cream in the United States:
As of 2022, the United States ranked second after New Zealand for the most ice cream consumption worldwide. This makes sense considering about 90% of United States households have ice cream in their freezer.
Can you guess the state that produces the most ice cream? The answer is California. In total, the United States produces 1.38 billion gallons of ice cream each year! I guess you can say that is a LOT of ice cream!
