Here’s a question guaranteed to stump your friends: Which state consumes more ice cream per capita than any other state in the nation?
It’s gotta be a warm weather state, right? After all, summers are the best time of year for some frosty treats. Maybe Florida? California? Hawaii, perhaps? Or maybe it’s one of those dairy producing states like Wisconsin or even good ol’ Pennsylvania. You’d be wrong with all those guesses. In fact, we’d give you 20 guesses and you probably wouldn’t answer correctly.
Give up? It’s Alaska. Alaskans eat more ice cream per person each year than any other state, but don’t ask us why, because we really don’t know. If anyone has any theories (or happens to know for sure), please enlighten us with a comment!
TODAY’S PRIZE: It’s a blast from the past with this vintage-looking tin toy. Just wind this little guy up and he peddles away, selling his ice cream for nickel a scoop. As always, we’ll choose one comment at random to receive this little distraction.
