It’s a sweet treat that many people enjoy and there are so many options!  So when it comes to it, what are our favorite ice cream flavors?  We’ll take a look below!

First of all, ice cream is BIG business!  An article from Stacker states ice cream makers churned out 1.38 billion gallons of ice cream.  This generated nearly 29,000 jobs and $1.8 billion in wagers. We’ve loved ice cream fo many years, keeping the manufacturers in business for more than 50 years, and counting.

There’s so much to love about ice cream!  The delicious sweet treat can satisfy a sweet tooth.  It’s great for cooling down on a hot day.  And let’s not forget about its magical ability to mend a broken heart or help make a bad day better! You can top it with an endless assortment of toppings.  Although, the first decision is… what flavor to choose!
