Vanilla, Chocolate Top List of Favorite Ice Cream Flavors
Thursday, July 14, 2011
When it comes to frozen treats, Americans prefer to keep it simple.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Adults who eat ice cream at least occasionally finds that 23% say vanilla is best, while the same number (23%) prefers chocolate. Nine percent (9%) like butter pecan the most, while strawberry and cookies and cream each earn eight percent (8%) of the vote.
Six percent (6%) prefer mint chocolate chip, and another four percent (4%) choose coffee flavored ice cream. Seventeen percent (17%) prefer some other flavor not mentioned in the survey. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
While men put vanilla at the top of the list, women do the same with chocolate.
While white adults prefer chocolate to vanilla 24% to 19%, black adults prefer vanilla by a 43% to 14% margin.

The national survey of 800 Adults Who Eat Ice Cream was conducted on July 7-8, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
Among adults who eat ice cream more than once a week, 28% pick vanilla while 22% like chocolate more. Those who eat ice cream only occasionally are torn between the two popular flavors.
Most ice cream eaters (78%) usually buy it at the store and eat it at home rather than go to an ice cream parlor. Seventeen percent (17%) would prefer going to an ice cream parlor for their treat.
American pizza-eaters rate Pizza Hut number one among pizza chains, closely followed by Papa Johns. But nearly one-out-of-five adults say they rarely or never eat pizza no matter who makes it.
In a showdown among the top three fast-food hamburger chains, Americans prefer Wendys over McDonalds and Burger King.
When it comes to coffee, 23% of coffee drinkers say they are more likely to buy it from Starbucks, while 22% each opt for either a convenience store or a local coffee shop. Fourteen percent (14%) get their coffee from Dunkin' Donuts, and 15% say they purchase it somewhere else.
Vanilla....with chocolate fudge, banana and whipped cream amkes my day!!
Where’s the graph?
vanilla bean vanilla ice cream sweetened with clover honey instead of sugar! That is by far the best flavor in the world. other good ones are: butterscotch toffee, dulce de leche, and peppermint.
Mango Italian Ice. Mmmmmm.
Either that or Chocolate Fudge and French Vanilla
in a cup with nuts.
...but prove to be a distateful where presidents are concerned.
We live close to Smuckers HG and they have an on-site store with ALL the ice topping flavors.
We shop there and then buy a bunch of vanilla ice cream and have an ice cream bar.
I’m told hispanics really really like strawberry flavored deserts.
“But nearly one-out-of-five adults say they rarely or never eat pizza no matter who makes it.
Yeah. I don’t buy it, either. Just not possible.
>>> But nearly one-out-of-five adults say they rarely or never eat pizza no matter who makes it.
Pizza is a total con-job. Cheese is made out of MOLD. Are there chains of little stores sending out rush deliveries of old dusty blue bread? I think NOT.
Oh, it’s a survey.
I was afraid is was a report on the research results from one of the administration’s multi-million dollar grants.
I'm sure there's a Ph.D dissertation in sociology in there somewhere.
