Did you know that about 9% of all the milk produced by US dairy farmers is used to produce ice cream? In 2011, about 1.53 gallons of frozen desserts were produced in America, with revenues well over $6 billion! Even though June tends to be the highest production month of the year, July is designated as National Ice Cream Month, probably because of the hotter weather across the nation.

Today, with many Americans trying to follow healthier diets, frozen desserts can be found in many varieties – low carb, no sugar added, and even dairy-free. Vanilla continues to be the favorite flavor in the US, followed by chocolate, cookies n’ cream, strawberry and chocolate chip mint.

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? According to a study from Baskin Robbins and Dr. Alan Hirsch, a neurologist at Rush University, your choice can say a lot about your personality. They came to the conclusion by asking adults 18 to 65 to complete five standard psychiatric and personality tests. Psychiatric descriptions from the DSM-IV were compared to each individual’s ice cream preferences.

Here is what they found:
-- If your favorite flavor is Vanilla, you're more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and an idealist.

-- If your favorite flavor is Chocolate, you're more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.

--If your favorite flavor is Butter Pecan, you likely “take charge” and are detail-oriented, ethical, orderly, careful, and serious. You may also be very much into sports.
