Vanilla tops list as most popular ice cream and gelato flavour
According to Technomic’s MenuMonitor database, vanilla is by far the most popular flavour of ice cream and gelato. This is largely because vanilla ice cream pairs well with almost any other dessert, which makes it an ideal option. Vanilla ice cream can also be customized easily with the addition of toppings such as chocolate syrup, fruit and hot fudge. It is also a popular flavour featured in milk shakes and floats.
Many operators serve up vanilla ice cream alongside other flavourful desserts such as pies, cakes and cookie skillets. Crabby Joe’s Tap & Grill offers Boring Ol’ Ice Cream—three scoops of vanilla ice cream. Guests can also order the dessert as a sundae with the addition of chocolate sauce or berry topping with whipped cream.
