Guess who was named “Best Chocolate Ice Cream in the U.S.”?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on October 30th, 2017

OCTOBER 28 - Chocolate DayChocolate ice cream with chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles and chocolate sauce? Don’t mind if we do!

This chocolate overload sundae might just be the perfect way to celebrate the great news that Turkey Hill’s Chocolate Ice Cream has been named “Best Chocolate Ice Cream in the United States” by Cook’s Illustrated magazine. That’s right, best in the U.S.A.!

The real star of our our Chocolate Ice Cream — or our Dutch Chocolate or our Belgian Style All Natural Chocolate — is the cocoa (chocolate). Here are a few facts about chocolate to nibble on while you enjoy a scoop or three of ice cream — Chocolate Ice Cream, of course.

1. The smell of chocolate increases theta brain waves, which triggers relaxation. (Nervous? Stressed out? Have some ice cream!)

2. White Chocolate isn’t technically chocolate because it contains no cocoa solids or cocoa liquor. (It’s still delicious, though!)

3. Americans eat 100 pounds of chocolate EVERY SECOND. (That seems a little low, doesn’t it?)

4. In 2013, Belgium created chocolate-flavored stamps. (And sending letters never tasted so good.)

5. German chocolate cake, made with coconut pecan frosting, isn’t actually German. It’s named for its inventor, an American baker named Sam German. (Thanks, Sam!)

6. The Aztecs loved and valued the cacao bean so highly that they used it as currency. (A new horse? That’ll be 12 chocolate bars.)

7. Chocolate is the only food that melts around 93° F. That’s why chocolate melts so easily in your mouth. (And in your car on a hot summer day!)

    Hubby is the chocolate person in our home so by mistake I asked him. He went back to his childhood and blurted out Howard Johnson with the orange roof. I told him they want now and HJ been gone for years. His new answer was Turkey Hill with all their different chocolates. I never know how I put up with him these 50+ years.

  31. KimB says:

    Congratulations, Turkey Hill! Now there’s only one thing that you must do as a follow up, and that is to make even more chocolate-based flavors. I know that I, and I’m sure legions of your other fans, will line-up to try them.
