I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for ICE CREAM!

Scooped in a dish, on a cone or in a sundae, ice cream is often a crowd-pleaser no matter how it’s served or topped. According to a survey of ice cream retailers across the U.S., the top-selling flavors of this cool and creamy treat are vanilla, chocolate, cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip and chocolate chip cookie dough. Come down on August 21st as we try the top flavors and vote on our favorite! Is there really a wrong choice? We don’t think so but we look forward to sharing ice cream with you.
