The United States ranks second in the world for ice cream consumption, falling just short of the number one spot (hi New Zealand). Did you know that the average American eats 20.8 liters of ice cream per year? That’s a lot of ice cream!
We wondered: how do the 50 states and Washington D.C. rank for ice cream consumption? We compared consumer attendances at ice cream venues nationwide, from January 2017 to March 2018, with the most recent census data (July 2017) to find out which state eats the most ice cream. Did your state come out on top?
