Buying Tips

When buying ice cream at the grocery store, make it one of your last purchases so it won’t have time to melt before you get home. Pack it with other frozen foods, ask for a freezer bag, or pack it near other chilled foods to keep them cold as well.

Varieties

Although an ever-changing menu of ice-cream flavors and products tempts us these days, the top five flavors in the United States in 1999 were still the great old familiar ones vanilla, chocolate, Neapolitan (the famous vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry combination), cookies and cream, and butter pecan.

Ice cream is now produced around the world in dozens of flavors, and in low-sugar, low-fat, and fat-free varieties.
