Nothing might be as American as apple pie, but what good is that apple pie without a scoop of good old-fashioned ice cream? Of all the foods we associated with America, none might be so universally enjoyed as ice cream.
According to the research firm NPD group, 2 in 5 Americans will eat ice cream at least once every two weeks, meaning on average, Americans will eat ice cream at least 28 times this year. 1.5 billion gallons of ice cream are produced in the United States every year and, 9 in 10 American households regularly eat ice cream.
What does your ice cream say about you?
A recent survey by the International Ice Cream Association revealed that 28% of people report vanilla as their favorite flavor, making vanilla the most popular flavor. Other top flavors include chocolate, strawberry, and mint chocolate chip. While a good old-fashioned cone of one of these flavors might be good on-the-go, ice cream is most commonly sold and eaten in cups.
Ice cream cups and frozen yogurt cups come in a variety of sizes and colors. Custom printed ice cream cups can even be bought wholesale wherever any frozen yogurt supplies or ice cream shop supplies are found.
Why use cups and not cones?
If you’re a parent like me, you know that ice cream cups with lids prevent children from spilling ice cream or frozen yogurt. And, let?s face it: ice cream and frozen yogurt melt. Most ice cream is produced and consumed in June. If you use an ice cream cup, frozen yogurt cup, or gelato cup, you can avoid the problem of a leaky cone on a hot day.
Custom printed ice cream cups or personalized ice cream cups can also be made-to-order for children’s birthday parties, graduations, or any other special occasion. Colored spoons can further personalize your ice cream cups to make your special occasion a memorable one.
So, the next time your kids scream for ice cream, stay away from the cone. Ice cream cups are a cleaner and more personalized option.
