The correct answer is twelve pounds of milk per gallon. Next time you see a cow, be sure to thank them!
This is one area where the Americans reign supreme. On the average, each citizen gobbles up 23.2 quarts of ice cream and ice cream related products in a year. That’s a lot of trips to the ice cream parlour!
If you stick to licking and not biting, you can polish off a single scoop in just 50 licks. This is one of those questions that clearly needs more testing. Next time you’re in the ice cream parlour, why not set up a competition?
The prize goes to the Palm Dairies of Edmonton, Alberta. They pulled together a massive sundae tipping the scales at 54,915 pounds or just over 24 tons. Once completed, the race was on to finish it off before it all turned into ice cream soup.
That would be Sunday. In fact, this is how the sundae got its name. A reverend in upstate New York would stop by the local pharmacy every Sunday after preaching. They had a little ice cream parlour set up there and he would order the same thing: One scoop of vanilla with cherry syrup and whipped cream on top. The pharmacists started calling it the ice cream sundae for a Sunday and it stuck.
Hands down, the winner is vanilla with chocolate running a close second.
Here chocolate dominates, as it should. No doubt, all those vanilla lovers pour chocolate over their ice cream.
That’s easy; the one with the most cows, right? Wrong. It is California.
