I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

ice cream cupDo you enjoy indulging in ice cream and other frozen desserts? If so, you’re not alone. A study by NPD Group shows that 40% of Americans will eat ice cream in any given two-week period. On top of that, sweet, frozen treats are consumed regularly by 90% of U.S. households.

Ice cream shops and manufacturers need to start gearing up for June, which is the month with the highest production of ice cream. Every year, the United States produces approximately 1.5 billion gallons of ice cream and frozen desserts. There were close to 2,600 frozen yogurt stores by the end of 2013.

This year, the average American will consume ice cream at least 28 times. With so many flavors, which ones do Americans prefer? Believe it or not, plain vanilla tops the list, with ice cream shops reporting that 28% of their customers prefer it over the dozens of other flavors.

Whether you own an ice cream shop or want to host the coolest dessert-themed party ever, you need the right supplies. Colored spoons, ice cream cups, and containers are must-haves for your event. You may want to have many flavors on hand, along with a tasting spoon to allow guests to sample the various choices. Prefer to serve frozen yogurt? Don’t forget frozen yogurt spoons, cups, and supplies. The same goes for gelato.

Want to focus on presentation? It’s all in the ice cream cup. While many people prefer cones, they tend to leak and get messy. An ice cream cup keeps all the ice cream contained in one spot. This means you have fewer messes and more time to enjoy your party.

Ice cream cups come in many different colors and patterns. You can get them in paper or Styrofoam varieties. Some have stripes or polka dots. You may even be able to customize them as well. You can often purchase them in 16-packs or even by the case if you’re planning a large party. Some also come with lids, so you can save the ice cream for later. This is especially useful for young kids.

The hotter weather may seem like a long way away, but before you know it, the whole country will be enjoying ice cream on a hot summer day.
