I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!!! {Tuesday Ten Linkup}

My family members are ice cream fanatics. There is rarely a time when we don't have ice cream of some kind in our freezer - even during winter! So, when I saw that July is National Ice Cream Month, I knew we had to make it a Tuesday Ten!! After all, when the weather is hot, there is nothing quite as yummy and refreshing as a cold, melty ice cream cone.

However, I decided that, to make things a little more interesting, I would expand a little on our planned topic of favorite ice cream flavors. My middle daughter helped me do a little research, so here are 10 interesting ice cream facts for you!  (You can see the three favorite flavors of all my family members below, too!)

Hungry for more???  The countries that are the top ten consumers of ice cream are:
1.  The United States
2. New Zealand
3. Denmark
4. Australia
5. Belgium/Luxembourg
6. Sweden
7. Canada
8. Norway
9. Ireland
10. Switzerland

Did any of those surprise you??  They sure surprised me!  And, France, where Thomas Jefferson became so fond of ice cream, isn't even on the list!

Finally, our favorite flavors:

My absolute favorite is cookies and cream, but still a vanilla girl at heart :)

Such fun facts! I almost quizzed my kids, but then I would have felt obligated to give them ice cream and we hadn't had dinner yet!

Ginnymarie said...

I think tonight just might be an ice cream for dinner sort of night after reading all these lists!

What is this monster cookie flavor I see? That sounds like something I must know about RIGHT AWAY!! Amazing that vanilla is the most popular flavor still.-Ashley

Tamara Bowman said...

Can I have some monster cookie, please??
I'll be linking up tonight! I have it paired with another post but I couldn't resist. Me and ice cream = best friends.
I love the facts! Scarlet loves vanilla ice cream. I'm a chocoholic and even I prefer vanilla as a base with ice cream.

Ooh! Cookies & cream is in our freezer right now! :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Ha! You can give them a test later. :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Sounds good to me!

Monster cookie is peanut butter flavor ice cream with cookie dough, m&M's, and a fudge ribbon running throughout it. :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

You can't go wrong with vanilla! Toppings are a bonus. :-)

My kids and husband LOVE ice cream. I rarely ever have it. It's one thing we almost never run out of in our house. Choc chip cookie dough, mint choc chip, fudge ripple, almost anything with a little chocolate sprinkled in apparently is a favorite.

Rea Alducente said...

Interesting and fun facts about ice cream. So cool that they grow vanilla beans in Madagascar. Didn't even include vanilla in my list, totally forgot but I love it too!

Dana said...

48 pints per person each year? That's almost a pint a week - wow. I like ice cream, but my kids and Matt love it. It's rarely in the house because I have no will power!
