The state of ice cream

Years ago I met a man who lived in my neighborhood and we got to talking. I learned that he was our area’s representative for Baskin-Robbins ice cream.

I learned from him that people in different regions of the the U.S. have different tastes in ice cream. Taste in Texas and NY are quite different. That did not surprise me.

I asked him whether some U.S. states likes ice cream more than others.

“That’s interesting,” he said, “guess which state has the greatest consumption, per capita, of ice cream?”

“I couldn’t begin to guess,” I replied.

“Turns out,” he said, “that it’s Alaska.”

Now that surprised me.
