Top Ice Cream States Eat More Pounds of Ice Cream Than Anyone on Earth

May 11, 2022

You may think you eat a lot of ice cream, but do you eat more than 12 pounds of it a year? That’s how much Americans consume on average per year-12.7 pounds exactly, according to the most recent data. But it might surprise you to learn that how much ice cream you eat may have something to do with where you live. So what’re the top ice cream states?

According to data from Zippia, there’s no geographic coherence to their state-by-state comparison. States from east, west, north, and south topped the list. They report that Gravy Analytics compared customer attendance at dessert venues nationwide between January 2017 and March 2018. After comparing population numbers, they determined which states eat the most per capita.

As Zippia clarifies, “there’s no guarantee states that lag behind aren’t just buying by the gallon from grocery stores.” However, this data gives valuable insight into which state’s contain the biggest populations with ice-cold sweet tooths.
