Look, we know that ice cream is incredibly delicious and makes us inexplicably happy but here are 10 really sweet facts about ice cream you may not know!

  1. Australia is the country with the 3rd highest level of ice cream consumption just behind NZ and the USA – we consume 1 litre per person every year – YUM!


  2. Vanilla is the most popular flavour of ice cream accounting for 30% of all ice cream sales!


  3. Sundays are for ice cream!  More ice cream is sold on Sunday than any other day of the week.


  4. Ice cream is so old that no one really knows who invented it, one story credits the first ice cream to Emperor Nero of Rome, it consisted of snow, nectar, fruit pulp and honey – we’ll have some of that!


  5. Over the course of a dairy cow’s life, she can produce enough milk for 34,068 litres of ice cream!


  6. The world record for ice cream eating is 6.6 litres of ice cream - WOW!


  7. Since 1945, Baskin Robbins has created more than 1,300 unique flavours


  8. Justin Timberlake’s favourite BR flavour is Daiquiri Ice – now we’ve got to try it!


  9. Some of BR’s most unusual flavours include avocado, garlic, jalapeno and even a dill pickle flavour for expectant mothers – would you be game enough to try it?
