Nearly one-third (31%) of Americans voted for ice cream as their favorite dessert for the America's birthday.
WASHINGTON, DC, June 27, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As the nation prepares to celebrate the Independence Day holiday, I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream -- at least, a third of us do, according to new data from a national online survey.
The survey, which polled 1,000 Americans, was conducted by Whisked!, a top-rated Washington DC-based baking company. "We knew the Fourth of July is synonymous with hot dogs, burgers, and grilling," said Jenna Huntsberger, CEO and founder of Whisked! "But as lovers of baking and all things sweet, we wanted to hear what the public has to say about their choice of desserts."
The survey, which offered participants a list of seven dessert options to choose from, found:
-Nearly one-third (31%) of Americans voted for ice cream as their favorite dessert for the America's birthday.
-Sixteen percent (16%) of Americans said pie would most satisfy their sweet tooth.
-One in ten (10%) of Americans voted brownies as their top pick.
-Cake and cupcakes were close, taking seven (7%) and six (6%) percent of the vote, respectively.
-Five percent (5%) of those polled listed cookies as their dessert of choice.
Interestingly, 25% of correspondents chose 'Other' as their favorite dessert, meaning they were more apt to choose a dessert outside of the options listed in the poll. Although correspondents didn't vary much depending on gender or age, this relatively high percentage could potentially be influenced by America's changing demographic landscape and a desire for regional, international, and other desserts which haven't traditionally been associated with the Fourth of July. Experts could only speculate as to what those other desserts might be -- perhaps churros or mochi will make next year's list?
When asked for comment about the data, Whisked! Communication Coordinator Rob Bock said, "It's bittersweet to see ice cream win America's heart, but I'd like to remind everyone that ice cream is even better when served à la Mode over our award-winning pie."
