Americans eat on the average of 20 quarts of ice cream each year!
Vanilla is the most popular flavor, followed by chocolate, strawberry, chocolate chip and butter pecan.
The ice cream cone was invented in 1904 Worlds Fair at St Louis, Mo.
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated the month of July as National Ice Cream Month and declared the third Sunday of July as National Ice Cream Day.
California, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Texas and New York are the states that consume the most ice cream.
In the late 19th century, America’s soda shops gave in to local churches who demanded that the newly-popular “ice cream soda” not be served on Sundays. So the solution was….. remove the soda from the recipe which created the ice cream sundae.
