This is NJ’s favorite ice cream flavor, according to a new study
While many “National Days” on the calendar seem pointless (I’m looking at you, whatever “Barbie in a Blender Day” is on July 27), some are definitely worth celebrating. One that sticks out is "National Ice Cream Day" on Sun. July 16.
Is there a better way to end a hot summer day than with a cup or cone filled with your favorite ice cream? Not for my money.
But do you know if you share your favorite flavor with the majority of the Garden State?
Here's the scoop (pun intended): a recent study was put out by Scholaroo detailing each state’s favorite ice cream flavor.
For National Ice Cream Day, Scholaroo analyzed consumer tracking data of online shopping data to determine the increase in people’s appetite for ice cream.
Now we’ve had some interesting flavors in New Jersey, remember when those Cicadas took over for the summer and The Bent Spoon in Princeton put them in ice cream?
Or how about when Windy Brow Farms decided that our favorite breakfast meat needed to be in ice cream?
Whether you call it Taylor Ham or pork roll, I’m pretty sure it’s still not going to top our list of favorite ice cream flavors.
According to Scholaroo’s data, we share our favorite flavor with 22 other states, including our neighbors, New York, and Delaware.
Here are NJ’s top five favorite ice cream flavors:
4️⃣ Rocky Road
2️⃣ Cookie Dough
That's right, NJ’s favorite ice cream flavor is Chocolate. This should come as no surprise, considering we’re home to the Mars Factory, we in the Garden State know our way around chocolate.
Personally, I’m surprised Cherry made our top five over something classic like Vanilla, or something we crave in NJ like Coffee.
