Sure, vanilla and chocolate are crowd-pleasing ice cream flavors, but they probably won’t thrill anyone. A recent survey found they’re far from America’s favorites.

Turkey Hill president John Cox says vanilla and chocolate are probably such big sellers because most people will eat them. 'They’re fantastic flavors and universally liked, which makes them good choices for birthday parties and ice cream socials,' he said in a statement. 'That’s exactly why they’re the top sellers.'

But apparently, if you really want to thrill your guests, you should serve mint chocolate chip; Choco Mint Chip won the top spot in the Turkey Hill survey. When you bring it out, though, make sure you serve it at the best ice cream temperature.
