Everybody likes ice cream. It’s the perfect dessert during the hottest summer days and an ideal pick-me-upper when the days are gloomy. Whether it’s a simple afternoon with family or friends or a movie date, a few scoops of your favorite ice cream flavors can never go wrong.
Data shows that Americans love ice cream so much that the country consumes about 1.6 billion gallons of the cold dessert each year. That’s about 23 pounds per person! And what’s not to love? There are so many flavors that you can choose from, and every year a new flavor is added to that list. There’s something for everybody!
But we’re here to share with you the scoop about which flavors are the top choices among Americans, and we’re giving you ideas on how to take your ice cream to the next level.
Top Ice Cream Flavors
In several polls and consumer surveys, chocolate ice cream has reigned supreme. It’s the number one flavor Americans love. Perhaps it’s because everyone loves chocolate, whether in hard or soft form. Being one of the first ice cream flavors developed, this has become a true classic and has truly withstood the test of time. If you want to take your love for chocolate ice cream to the next level, check out Cold Stone’s Choloclate Devotion flavor.
Some say that chocolate ice cream is the favorite flavor. But some consider vanilla the number one ice cream flavor. That’s thanks to its versatility. Though some may consider this flavor as very basic, it’s a flavor that goes well with and complements various dishes. You can enjoy vanilla ice cream with or without topping.
This one flavor is one of those love it or hate it kinds. Although many people love the intense strawberry flavor of this ice cream, some think there’s no redeeming quality for this flavor. Still, more people love this ice cream, so it’s among the most popular, up there with vanilla and chocolate. Cold Stone Creamery has taken the traditional strawberry flavor to a whole new level of ‘wow’ with our ‘Surrender to Strawberry‘ flavor.
Mint Chocolate Chip
Like the strawberry flavor, the mint chocolate flavor is also one that people either hate or love. But there’s no denying that this ice cream flavor has some dedicated fans. It’s something you’ll love if you’re into the perfect combination of sweet, indulgent chocolate flavor and refreshing minty flavor. Once again, Cold Stone has taken this flavor up a notch with Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip!
This may come as a surprise, but Butter Pecan is one of America’s favorite ice cream flavors. But, between the perfect combination of the nutty notes of pecan and the richness of butter, you cannot go wrong with this sweet indulgence. In addition, this flavor has that hint of sweet and decadent vanilla.
With so many flavor options, there are also amazing flavors that deserve mention in this ranking. Such flavors include Rocky Road, Coffee, Chocolate Chip, Neapolitan, Pistachio, and Cookies N Crème.
Healthy Ice Cream Flavors
It might sound funny to hear the words, but there are, in fact, healthy ice cream flavors. Some brands have introduced various healthy versions of this cold dessert in recent years. Halo Top and Ben & Jerry’s have added lactose-free and dairy-free ice cream to their lineup. Keto ice cream is also available in most healthy dessert aisles.
