With Summer in full effect and the temperatures rising we wanted to know what is the most popular ice cream flavor in Arkansas?

Now that we have had our share of near 100-degree temperatures and this Summer is feeling like it may be a long hot one, what better way to cool off than with some delicious creamy ice cream.

In my house, we tend to be a little boring, and vanilla is where it's at for sure. We do have the typical caramel and chocolate toppings but vanilla ice cream is the favorite. Now if we get a little adventurous we may have some strawberry or even a little chocolate ice cream. When we go out for ice cream we get a little more daring, I had my very first cup of Andy's frozen custard and the mint chocolate chip was awesome. I will certainly be ready for when they come to Texarkana.

I looked up what the most popular ice cream flavors were for the United States and the story I found on Travel and Leisure had me a little stumped on how they picked these 'favorite flavors'. Of course, I wanted to share the favorite flavors of those states closest to us so you can see how crazy this survey turned out.

They used instacart to find out the most popular flavors in the United States. Did you know that 24 states picked chocolate or at least some form of chocolate as their favorite?

In the lone star state, they love their 'Rainbow Sherbet'. I know it does seem a little odd but hey they like what they like.

Folks in Louisiana really like 'Birthday Cake' ice cream. My daughter is a fan of this flavor, but for me, it's really too sweet for my taste.

Well, folks in the natural state picked 'Rainbow Sherbet' as their favorite. I can't remember the last time I had 'Rainbow Sherbet'. Maybe at a birthday party that I went to as a kid. What do you think about this pick?
