Spring is here and summer is straight ahead.  You know what that means, fun on the water, long walks, fishing, amusement parks, and carnivals.  Also many ice cream places will be opening up if they are not already.  Here are some fun facts about ice cream:

      • The average number of licks to finish a scoop is 50.
      • The country that consumes the most is the USA, followed by Australia then Norway.
      • The most popular flavor is vanilla, then chocolate.
      • The average American eats 45.8 pints of ice cream a year.

There is really not an ice cream invented that I won't eat.  Three of my favorites are rocky road, pistachio, and chocolate. And of course I can't ignore a root beer float which is so easy to make at home with root beer and vanilla ice cream. Yum.
