We’re halfway through July. Have you celebrated National Ice Cream month yet?  No time like the present.  Get a spoon and consider these ice cream fun facts as revealed by a recent Harris Poll!

  1. We Americans slurp up the most ice cream per person than folks in any other nation – a whopping 48 pints for each of us per year.
  2. A serving of vanilla ice cream was offered to immigrants at Ellis Island, as part of their “Welcome to America” meal.
  3. Ice cream was first mentioned in writing in this country in a letter from the 1700s, which admiringly described the ice cream and strawberry dessert a Maryland governor served at a fancy dinner party. Back then, ice cream was enjoyed mostly by a very elite few, including George Washington.
  4. 98% of all households purchase ice cream
  5. The top three cities in America that purchase the most ice cream are: Portland, Oregon; St. Louis, Missouri; and Seattle, Washington.
