Sunday (July 18th) is National Ice Cream Day!
Ice cream is a staple sweet treat that is loved by most, and with the summer heat, it's flying off the shelves faster than ever.
But which flavors get snatched up the quickest in the state?
Instacart conducted a study to determine which flavor of ice cream is the favorite in each state. The site determined this by looking at ice cream sales compared to the national average.
The study states:
"Because vanilla is hands down the most purchased ice cream flavor in every state — accounting for more than a quarter (26.2%) of all ice cream sales in the U.S. — we dug a little deeper to find out what people are buying when they step out of their vanilla comfort zone. To do this, we determined which ice cream flavor each state buys the most compared to the national average."
According to the study, New Mexico's favorite ice cream flavor is Chocolate Chocolate Chip.
New Mexico wasn't the only state loving the chocolate flavors. 24 states in all had a chocolate-based flavor as their favorite.
Moose Tracks ice cream is top ice cream flavor, winning the hearts of 12 states.
Rocky Road tied with Green Tea, Coffee, and Birthday Cake for the second-most loved flavors in the country.
