Most people's ice cream preferences are pretty boring, but I guess they're not as boring as they could be.  Because a new survey found the most popular ice cream flavors in the country, and vanilla only finished fourth.

9 Most Popular Flavors Of Ice Cream:

  1. Mint chocolate chip, 16% of people say it's their favorite flavor.
  2. Chocolate, 15%.
  3. Cookies and cream, 15%.
  4. Vanilla, 12%.
  5. Butter pecan, 11%.
  6. Rocky road, 10%.
  7. Strawberry, 10%.
  8. Chocolate chip, 5%.
  9. Neapolitan, 4%.

To be honest, I'm surprised that chocolate wasn't #1.  I would image in the number of women taking this survey out weigh the men by far.  Maybe the movies are wrong, dutch chocolate isn't the go to for stress relief.

Vanilla is my personal favorite and it's quite disheartening to see it ranking at #4.  I mean come on, Vanilla ice cream on top of a warm brownie drowned in chocolate syrup with whip cream...is there anything better in life than that?  Go ahead...I'll wait...
