Vanilla is the Top-Selling Ice Cream Flavor, but is it a True Fan Favorite?
THE TOP-SELLING ICE CREAM FLAVOR, BUT IS IT
A TRUE FAN FAVORITE? Turkey Hill Dairy survey highlights differences
between sales data and fan preferences
name your favorite ice cream flavor. Chances are, it’s probably not one of the
nation’s top sellers.
According to national sales figures from the
International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), Vanilla is number one in sales
rankings and has been since as long as anyone can remember. But is the
versatile, no-frills flavor truly the top choice among ice cream fans? To find
the answer, Turkey Hill Dairy polled more than 4,000 of its fans on social
media and its Turkey Hill Nation fan club.
After the votes had been counted, it was Choco
Mint Chip (aka Mint Chocolate Chip) that emerged as the frosty favorite. The
classic combination of mint ice cream and chocolate chips was followed by
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup, Butter Pecan, Chocolate Marshmallow, and Black
Raspberry to round out the top five.
As for Vanilla? It was nowhere to be found on
the list and eventually ranked number 12 in the Turkey Hill poll. Even
Chocolate — the perennial number two in the IDFA sales rankings — failed to
crack the top 10.
“The results of the poll don’t necessarily mean
that Vanilla and Chocolate aren’t good flavors,” explained Turkey Hill
President John Cox, whose own personal favorite is All Natural Vanilla (almost
everything else is a close second). “They’re fantastic flavors and universally
liked, which makes them good choices for birthday parties and ice cream
socials. That’s exactly why they’re the top sellers.”
Rounding out the top 10 in Turkey Hill’s survey,
starting at number six, are Black Cherry, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Double
Dunker (a Turkey Hill-exclusive flavor consisting of mocha-flavored ice cream
swirled with cookie dough and chocolate cookie swirl), Peanut Butter Ripple,
and Cookies ‘n Cream.
