Which states consume the most ice cream per capita in America? Summer is almost over, even for the states that consume the most ice cream, but this doesn’t necessarily mean people stop doing stuff that is usually related to the hottest time of the year. Like for example going to the pool, taking a walk down the beach, or eating ice cream. If you have a sweet tooth and often crave this frosty treat, you probably don’t care about things like temperature, and this applies for everyone in the world. In fact, here’s a list with the 11 Countries That Consume the Most Ice Cream. According to this list,  the US is ranked in the second place, but, what if we took it a little further?

Looking for the ten states that consume the most ice cream, we searched the entire internet and we couldn’t find any concrete results. We went through blog posts of a couple of ice cream makers and they both agreed on the #1 state that consumes the most ice cream per capita. I bet you won’t get it right even if you guess 10 times. The rest of the list is based on a study by Bundle which was acquired by Capital One (which is why the study isn’t directly available on their site). It lists 10 states that consume the most ice cream. We ranked these 10 states by population (smaller states are more likely to consume more ice cream per resident). Based on our calculations here are the 11 states that consume the most ice cream per capita in the United States:

11 Texas
