America’s Favorite Ice Cream Flavors: Are We Really This Boring?
The International Dairy Foods Association says this survey is about Americans’ favorite ice cream flavors. And maybe it is, on the surface. But to me, it’s a survey on how BORING people are. And we are EXTRAORDINARILY boring.
- According to the survey, 92% of ice cream companies say their most popular flavor is…vanilla.
- Mint chocolate chip and cookies-and-cream tied for second place, each one got 3.7%.
- Pecans were named the most popular nut topping for ice cream, and peanuts were second. Strawberries are the most popular fruit, ahead of a cherry or raspberries.
I actually prefer butter pecan. What’s your favorite?
