“I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream.”
With National Ice Cream Day this Sunday, what do you think Michigan’s favorite ice cream is? Reports vary depending on where you look but according to topagency.com, Chocolate tops out the charts for us. The same data shows chocolate taking the top spot with 15 states. But, where we could argue is the 2nd spot in Michigan being taken by CHERRY! Could it be because of our prolific amount of cherries?
Now to counter that survey, Mlive posted an article in 2020 stating that Cookies and Cream was our favorite at that time. This data was based on hashtags and geotagged Twitter data. In that compiled data, chocolate won the top spot across the United States as a whole.
The data also shows that consumers have increased their buying of ice cream by 29% since 2021. Although I would be curious to see if this is from the change in the supply chains, the reduction of the pandemic, and the major increase in outdoor activities.
Here at WCSX, we love ice cream. We love it so much that we created a challenge, THE GAME OF CONES! Where you decide who has the best ice cream in Michigan. And we are down to the last bracket and a winner will be chosen on Sunday, July 17th, 2022. Go vote now and help decide who gets that ice cream crown!
Here’s the breakdown of all the state’s top five based on the data compiled by topagency.com:
