At least we can agree on one thing, we love ice cream! But what's the favorite flavor?

What's your favorite flavor?


While the nation is split on so many issues and social media is full on angry arguments over one thing after another... at least we can find some common ground.

"This survey finds that 96% of Americans eat ice cream," Ron Faucheux said in his Lunchtime Politics email.

The analyst looked at information from YouGov and found that just 4% of us don't eat ice cream.

"Apparently, we all actually do scream for ice cream."

The survey asked Americans to name their favorite flavor of ice cream.
Chocolate: 14%
Vanilla: 13%
Butter pecan: 11%
Cookies ‘N Creme: 8%
Mint Chocolate Chip: 8%
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: 6%
Strawberry: 6%
Pistachio: 5%
Rocky Road: 5%
Chocolate Chip: 4%
Cake Batter: 3%

Faucheux says, "It also finds that 18-34 year olds are more likely to pick Cookies ‘N Crème (14%) and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (13%) than other age cohorts. Those over 55 years old select Butter Pecan (17%) and Vanilla (16%) as their top choices."

Most of us eat the sweet treat regardless of the weather.

"71% of Americans surveyed say they eat ice cream year-round, while 19% say they only eat ice cream in warmer months."

We asked listeners to the Early Edition of WWL First News to text us at 870870 with their favorite flavors:

  • Raspberry sherbet w/sugar cone... But if there's ever a Red Bull inspired ice cream I'd be all on it!!
