15 Most Popular Ice Cream Flavors: The Winner May Surprise You!

Diet and Nutrition News & Advice

As we all celebrate the arrival of spring, there are several things to look forward to. For some, it may be the re-opening of golf courses, for others it may be getting your bike out of the garage and taking it out on the open road. For me, it’s the ice cream shops conveniently located near parks where I can take a long stroll while enjoying a delicious and refreshing ice cream cone. According to the International Dairy Foods Association, approximately 1.53 billion gallons of ice cream and related frozen desserts were produced in the US in 2011. The US ice cream industry generated total revenues of $10 billion in 2010. Needless to say, people love ice cream. But, with an increasing variety of flavors to choose from each year, it’s hard to guess which is the most popular flavor among consumers.

No need to guess anymore! We’re about to reveal the Top 15 Ice Cream Flavors of 2012. Scroll through to see the top flavor (and the most popular flavor may surprise you)…

15. Chocolate Marshmallow (1.3%)

If you can’t choose between the creamy, vanilla marshmallow and the rich, sinful taste of decadent chocolate, don’t worry. You don’t have to. When it comes to ice cream, chocolate bar, and cookie flavors, chocolate marshmallow is always a winner.

Chocolate marshmallow ice cream is the perfect summer camp flavor because it’s reminiscent of s’mores, the classic campfire treat. Traditional s’mores is made using a toasted marshmallow, a square of chocolate, and a graham cracker. However, in this case, chocolate and marshmallow ice cream is combined and the cone acts as the sweet cookie. Try it with a waffle cone for even more sweetness.
