Pacific NW Cities Leads Nation in Ice Cream Consumption — Dave’s Diary

Can you ever have too many posts about ice cream during National Ice Cream Month?  I think not, especially when it’s getting hot.  That being settled, where does all that dairy deliciousness come from? The Top 5 States That Produce The Most Ice Cream:

  1. California
  2. Indiana
  3. Ohio
  4. Illinois
  5. Michigan

So we know where it comes from but what do we know about how it’s consumed? Plenty!

  • Each American consumes an average of 23.2 quarts of ice cream, ice milk, sherbet, ices and other commercially produced frozen dairy products each year.
  • The Northern Central states have the highest per capita consumption of ice cream, at 41.7 quarts. The top three cities in America that purchase the most ice cream are: Portland, Oregon; St. Louis, Missouri; and Seattle, Washington.
  • More ice cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week.
  • Ice cream consumption is highest during July and August. July is National Ice Cream Month.
  • The average number of licks to polish off a single scoop ice cream cone is approximately 50.
