Summer is officially here and that means getting to indulge in summer staples, including pool days, barbecues and getting ice cream.
In fact, Americans tend to consume about 12.1 pounds of ice cream each year, and the industry employs about 126,462 people, Zippia pointed out in a report published Monday (June 21). The report comes as summer kicks off and as National Ice Cream Month (July) rounds the corner.
Fittingly, Zippia sought out to find the states that love ice cream the most, with the help of data from Gravy Analytics.
As it turns out, however, many Georgians might be opting for another sweet treat during the summer.
Georgia ranked No. 31 on the list, Zippia shows.
These are the Top 10 states that eat the most ice cream:
- New Jersey
- New York
- Rhode Island
Don’t worry, though: If you’re a Georgian looking for a good ice cream place, Explore Georgia has you covered.
Last Month, Explore Georgia published a list of 20 of the best places to get ice cream in Georgia. Some of the best spots include Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, Oconee Sweet Sensations, Freeze Frame Yogurt and more.
