I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Scream (especially Chocolate)

A favorite dessert of many Americans, adults and kids alike, is ice cream. There are lots of great flavors of ice cream from the standard chocolate and vanilla to crazy flavors like Bunny Tracks and Chunky Monkey.

In a recent poll, Harris Interactive asked Americans what was their favorite flavor of ice cream. The winner was chocolate. In the poll each person got to pick their two favorite flavors. Here is the order of the top 10 favorite flavors:
  1. Chocolate
  2. Vanilla
  3. Cookie Dough/ Cookies and cream
  4. Butter Pecan/ Swiss Almond
  5. Mint Chocolate Chip
  6. Strawberry
  7. Rocky Road
  8. Coffee
  9. Peanut Butter
  10. Cherry Vanilla
Ice Cream Cone
Since we really like ice cream here at Ducksters, we decided to run our own poll to see what type of ice cream our visitors like. We picked the top 5 flavors from the Harris Poll for our poll.

As of the writing of this article, here are the results:
  1. Cookies and Cream 51%
  2. Chocolate 17%
  3. Vanilla 15%
  4. Mint Chocolate Chip 12%
  5. Butter Pecan 9%
The winner at Ducksters by far is Cookies and Cream ice cream with chocolate coming in a distant second place. Of course, our poll is no where near as scientific as the Harris Poll, but it sure seems like our visitors overwhelmingly like Cookies and Cream as their favorite ice cream.

Tip: How can you remember that the "dessert" you eat has two Ss while the sandy dry desert land has one S? Just remember that you'd always want two Scoops of ice cream. Each S stands for a scoop.

Fun Facts about Ice Cream I'm getting hungry just writing this article. Time for some ice cream!
