What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? | artisteer/iStock/Getty Images

The United States has a reputation for inventing — or at least popularizing — some iconic foods. But each state has its own favorites. Just as people in each state love different foods, they also hate different foods. And especially when it comes to desserts, such as ice cream, favorites vary widely across the United States.

Twitter took an entertaining look at the most tweeted-about ice cream flavors across the country to determine which flavors are the most popular in each state. Chocolate and vanilla were the very most popular (and are also the best-selling flavors across the United States, according to the International Dairy Foods Association) so you won’t see them on the list below. But you will see your state’s favorite flavor after those two iconic classics.

1. Alabama

  • Brownie

Twitter reports that Alabama loves brownie ice cream, a flavor that’s quite popular across the United States, as you’ll see in the coming pages. But The Daily Meal decided to come up with the ice cream flavors that should be the favorites in every state, based on the most iconic desserts and fruits from that state. For Alabama, the publication hypothesized that ice cream connoisseurs should make Lane Cake ice cream, based on an award-winning white sponge cake with bourbon-soaked raisins and coconut dating back to the 1890s.

2. Alaska

  • Strawberry

Twitter learned that residents of Alaska love strawberry ice cream. The flavor is remarkably close to what The Daily Meal says would make an amazing signature frozen treat for Alaska. The publication recommends that someone in the state formulate a wild berry ice cream with a delicious mix of the wild blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries that are plentiful in the state.

Next: This state loves the flavor of everybody’s favorite caffeinated beverage. 

3. Arizona

  • Coffee

Arizona goes on the list of the states that cite coffee ice cream as their favorite, as per Twitter’s survey. People everywhere love coffee. (And coffee ice cream, as you’ll see in the coming pages.) But The Daily Meal reports that a more fitting favorite for Arizona would be a sopapilla ice cream, based on the delicious flavors of the pastry dough fried in oil and drizzled with honey.

Next: This state also loves coffee flavor.

4. Arkansas

  • Coffee

People in Arkansas also love their coffee-flavored ice cream, according to Twitter. But The Daily Meal hypothesizes that a cinnamon roll flavor could make a more fitting favorite for Arkansas. “Any drive through Arkansas will ultimately lead you to a restaurant that claims to serve the state’s best cinnamon rolls, and there are a lot of them,” the publication explains. You could make cinnamon roll ice cream in a variety of ways. But the simplest might just be to chop up a cinnamon roll and stir it into a fresh batch of vanilla ice cream.

Next: Add this state to the list of coffee enthusiasts, too.

5. California

  • Coffee

Twitter learned that people in California love their coffee ice cream. (Are you starting to notice a trend?) But according to The Daily Meal, orange would make a more fitting favorite for this fruit-loving state. The publication notes that California grows more fruit — and more varieties of fruit — than any other state in the nation. Yet most people know California for its citrus groves. Orange ice cream might sound a little weird. But as The Daily Meal points out, an orange creamsicle makes for a delicious dessert.

Next: Continuing the streak, this state loves coffee, too.

6. Colorado

  • Coffee

According to Twitter, coffee takes the cake as the favorite ice cream flavor in yet another state: Colorado. But The Daily Meal thinks that a more fitting favorite for Colorado would be a trail mix-flavored ice cream. Having trouble envisioning it? “How about a vanilla base with some cashews, pecans, raisins, dried cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, and M&Ms mixed in,” the publication suggests.

Next: Yet another state loves coffee as well.

7. Connecticut

  • Coffee

In Connecticut as in other states, people love their coffee-flavored ice cream, according to Twitter. The Daily Meal reports that Connecticut has designated ice cream as its official dessert. But it’s chosen the snickerdoodle cookie as its official state cookie. The publication suggests combining both of them to create a delicious snickerdoodle ice cream. You could combine cinnamon ice cream with crumbled snickerdoodles for a delicious take on the flavor.

Next: This state chose a more niche flavor as its favorite.

8. Delaware

  • Mint chocolate chip

Delaware cites mint chocolate chip as its favorite ice cream flavor, Twitter reports. But The Daily Meal has other ideas for this state. The publication points out the state has chosen strawberries as its official fruit. And sometimes, the simplest things in life are the best. The Daily Meal reports that some “old-fashioned wild strawberry ice cream” would make a fitting flavor for Delaware. (Especially if those strawberries are locally sourced, we might add.)

Next: This state loves a classic fruity flavor.

9. Florida

  • Strawberry

Florida is one of the few states that names strawberry ice cream as its favorite flavor, according to Twitter. Yet The Daily Meal suggests a different fruit-inspired flavor as a more fitting choice for this coastal state. “Florida Key limes actually make for a great ice cream flavor,” the publication reports, “and graham cracker chunks are the perfect accompaniment.”

Next: This state loves strawberry, too.

10. Georgia

  • Strawberry

Twitter reports that just like Florida, Georgia names strawberry as its favorite ice cream flavor. The Daily Meal has a better suggestion, though. The publication suggests that someone in the state try formulating a fresh Georgia peach ice cream, and then mixing in a cobbler-style topping to get the flavor exactly right. That sounds like a delicious treat for the peach state, if you ask us!

Next: This state loves coffee.

11. Hawaii

  • Coffee

Coffee emerged as Hawaii’s favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. But The Daily Meal reports that a more fitting favorite for Hawaii would incorporate one of the most iconic flavors from the state. “Coconut is one of the key flavors of Hawaii, and we can easily imagine ourselves sitting on a Maui beach enjoying some coconut ice cream right now.” To add another distinctive Hawaiian flavor, you could top  the treat with some fresh chopped pineapple.

12. Idaho

  • Brownie

According to Twitter, brownie ice cream is the favorite flavor in Idaho. But The Daily Meal reports that huckleberries remain a point of pride for this state, and could make a delicious signature flavor for Idaho. Huckleberries thrive at high elevations, and while they’re sometimes difficult to cultivate, you could go pick wild huckleberries to make some huckleberry ice cream yourself.

Next: This state loves the flavor of another popular dessert.

13. Illinois

  • Cookie dough

Illinois numbers among the states that name cookie dough as their favorite ice cream flavor. But The Daily Meal reports that another popular flavor — brownie ice cream — would make a more fitting signature flavor for Illinois. “The modern brownie was actually invented at Chicago’s famed Palmer House Hotel, and the first mention of the word ‘brownie’ in print appeared in the Chicago-based Sears Roebuck Catalog in 1898,” the publication explains.

Next: This state loves cookie dough, too.

14. Indiana

  • Cookie dough

Cookie dough emerged as Indiana’s favorite ice cream flavor, as per Twitter’s results. It is a perfectly delicious flavor. But The Daily Meal reports that a dessert called hoosier pie would make a more fitting signature for Indiana. Hoosier pie relies on copious amounts of sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla — the same ingredients you’d need to make vanilla ice cream. So The Daily Meal suggests, “why not dice up some Hoosier pie — crust and all — and stir it into a fresh batch of vanilla?”

Next: This state also love cookie dough. 

15. Iowa

  • Cookie dough

You can add Iowa to the list of states that love cookie dough ice cream, according to Twitter. Yet The Daily Meal thinks that another sugary-sweet flavor would make a better favorite for the Midwestern state. The publication recommends making a flavor that incorporates Blarney Stones, an iconic Iowa dessert that consists of pound cake covered in vanilla frosting and coated in peanuts.

Next: Yet another state chose cookie dough as its favorite. 

16. Kansas

  • Cookie dough

Twitter learned that cookie dough is the favorite ice cream flavor of people in Kansas. According to The Daily Meal, however, a much more obscure flavor would make a better signature flavor for the state. The publication thinks that someone in the state should formulate a flavor that incorporates Peppernuts, or Pfeffernüsse. This German dessert took hold in Kansas when German immigrants brought the recipe for these spicy cookies in the 1870s. “Create an ice cream that approximates the flavor of these — rich with warming spices like cloves, cinnamon, mace, cardamom, anise, and nutmeg — and you’ll bring back childhood memories of countless Kansans,” the publication reports.

Next: This state prefers strawberry.

17. Kentucky

Kentucky is one just a few states that name strawberry as their favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. But The Daily Meal reports that bourbon would make a much more fitting flavor for this state. The publication reports that you wouldn’t need much more than a good Kentucky bourbon to create this frozen treat yourself. “Reduce some down with plenty of brown sugar, and you’ve got a killer ice cream base,” the publication suggests.

Next: This state takes us right back to an iconic chocolate flavor.

18. Louisiana

Twitter’s numbers showed that brownie ice cream pulls ahead as the favorite flavor in Louisiana. But The Daily Meal has come up with a much more fitting signature flavor the Southern state. The publication suggests making a delicious pecan praline ice cream by combining a brown sugar caramel base with a generous number of toasted pecans stirred in. Sounds delicious to us!

Next: This state chose a more unique flavor as its favorite.

19. Maine

  • Mint chocolate chip

According to Twitter, mint chocolate chip is the favorite ice cream flavor in Maine. But as The Daily Meal points out, blueberry would make a much more obvious favorite flavor for the New England state. The publication reports, “About 60,000 acres of wild blueberries abound throughout Maine, making the berry incredibly popular in the state for both eating straight from the plant and incorporating into pies. No reason to not turn them into ice cream, too!” We couldn’t agree more.

20. Maryland

Twitter reports that Maryland chose cookie dough as its favorite ice cream flavor. Yet as The Daily Meal reports, a frozen treat based on one of Maryland’s most iconic desserts would make a delicious signature instead. The publication suggests formulating an ice cream that makes good use of Smith Island Cake, a multi-layered yellow cake that has chocolate fudge icing between each layer. (Sometimes, it has up to 14 layers!) To get the flavor, you could just stir chunks of yellow cake into your favorite chocolate ice cream.

Next: This state loves a caffeine-laden flavor.

21. Massachusetts

  • Coffee

Coffee is Massachusetts’ favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. But The Daily Meal hypothesizes that a Boston Cream Pie flavor would make a more fitting signature for the state. After all, that iconic pie first came into existence at the city’s famous Parker House Hotels. However, The Daily Meal admits that the flavor might not be particularly easy to convert into ice cream. But the publication still has some suggestions. “We’d start with vanilla frozen custard, stir in cubes of yellow cake, and give it a chocolate fudge swirl.”

Next: On the other hand, this state prefers cookie dough.

22. Michigan

  • Cookie dough

Twitter reports that Michigan chose cookie dough as its favorite ice cream flavor. Yet The Daily Meal thinks that a fruit-centered flavor would make more sense as Michigan’s signature ice cream. The fruit in question? Cherries. “With more than 90,000 tons of cherries being harvested in Michigan every year, this one’s an absolute no-brainer.” You could even throw in a little bit of chocolate fudge to honor Mackinac Island’s fudge shops for a truly delicious tribute to the state.

23. Minnesota

Minnesota’s favorite ice cream flavor? Coffee, according to Twitter. Coffee may make for delicious ice cream, but The Daily Meal suggests a popular Minnesota treat known as the Seven-Layer Bar as a more fitting flavor for the state. The dessert combines butter, graham crackers, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, walnuts, shredded coconut, and sweetened condensed milk into a flavor profile that could make for an incredibly rich and delicious ice cream.

Next: This state likes brownie ice cream the best.

24. Mississippi

Brownie takes the cake as Mississippi’s favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. Yet The Daily Meal suggests a related, if more unique, flavor to serve as a Mississippi’s signature ice cream. The publication suggests turning Mississippi mud pie into a a frozen treat, incorporating the dessert’s chocolate, pecans, vanilla extract, and coffee liqueur into a new variety of ice cream.

Next: This state prefers cookie dough. 

25. Missouri

  • Cookie dough

Missouri goes on the list of states that love cookie dough ice cream, according to Twitter. Missouri’s love for the the soft dough may have inspired The Daily Meal, which suggests turning a St. Louis specialty called a Gooey Butter Cake into a new flavor of ice cream. This “super-sweet” and “super-rich” dessert contains yellow cake made with lots of extra butter. And it gets topped with what The Daily Meal characterizes as a “sticky mix of cream cheese, eggs, and powdered sugar.” Just add those to some vanilla ice cream and you’re in business!

26. Montana

  • Coffee

According to Twitter, people in Montana love coffee ice cream. But Montana is one of the states that The Daily Meal thinks could benefit from a fruit-centric signature ice cream flavor. In fact, the publication recommends an ice cream flavor formulated around the state’s delicious Flathead cherries. “During harvest season, the area around Montana’s Flathead Lake is packed with roadside stands selling some of the finest cherries you’ll ever encounter,” cherries that could make for a delicious frozen treat.

27. Nebraska

  • Cookie dough

According to Twitter, people in Nebraska love cookie dough ice cream the most. In what will definitely prove a controversial opinion, The Daily Meal asserts that corn would make a better signature flavor for the state. “Corn is Nebraska’s primary crop (as any extended drive through the countryside will tell you),” the publication explains. “And sweet corn makes one heck of an awesome ice cream.” Most people probably haven’t tried a vegetable-flavored ice cream. But even the Food Network has a recipe that any curious Nebraskans can try.

28. Nevada

Twitter learned that brownie ice cream tops the list of favorite flavors in Nevada. But The Daily Meal posits that a s’more flavor could make a more fitting signature for the state. The publication notes that s’mores make a classic campfire dessert, which seems perfect for a camping paradise like Nevada. Not sure how to make a s’mores flavor? “Chocolate ice cream with crumbled graham crackers and marshmallow swirls should do it,” The Daily Meal reports.

Next: This cold state likes its frozen treats flavored like a hot beverage.

People in New Hampshire chose coffee as their favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. But a whoopie pie flavor could make an even better frozen treat for the state, according to The Daily Meal. For the uninitiated, a whoopie consists of two discs of chocolate cake with marshmallow frosting between them. The dessert remains very popular in New Hampshire — and could easily become a frozen treat if you stirred some chunks of chocolate cake into marshmallow-flavored ice cream.

Next: This state numbers among the few that chose this iconic, but unique, flavor.

30. New Jersey

New Jersey’s favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip, as per Twitter. But we love The Daily Meal’s suggestion that cannoli would make an even better signature flavor for the state. The publication notes, “New Jersey’s Italian population has played a big role in shaping the state’s culinary identity, and cannoli are arguably the most legendary Italian dessert.” If you wanted to experiment, you could try combining vanilla ice cream with cinnamon, allspice, chocolate chips, and candied citrus rind for a delicious take on the flavor.

Twitter learned that cookie dough is the favorite ice cream flavor of many people in New Mexico. But The Daily Meal hypothesizes that a more fitting signature flavor for the state would incorporate a different kind of cookie flavor. The publication suggests using the bizcochito, the official state cookie of New Mexico, to create a new frozen dessert. These cookies include lard, cinnamon, and anise, and could easily be chopped up and stirred into cinnamon ice cream.

33. North Carolina

North Carolina chose coffee as its favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. Yet The Daily Meal chose another flavor, seemingly out of left field, to nominate as a more fitting signature frozen dessert for the state. “North Carolina is the country’s top sweet potato producer, and sweet potato pie is one of its signature desserts,” the publication reports. “Think about taking all the flavors of sweet potato pie and turning it into ice cream.” We definitely wouldn’t mind experimenting!

According to Twitter, cookie dough reigns as the most popular ice cream flavor in North Dakota. Yet The Daily Meal recommends that dessert fans in the state try making a chokecherry ice cream instead. The state has designated the chokecherry, which is related to the black cherry, as its official state fruit. The Daily Meal reports, “When ripe, they have a sweet, tart flavor that would pair perfectly with vanilla ice cream.”

Ohio chose cookie dough as its favorite ice cream flavor, according to Twitter. But a more fitting signature flavor for the state would likely incorporate Buckeyes, the state’s most iconic flavor, according to The Daily Meal. Buckeyes usually consist of soft peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate “just enough so that a little eye of peanut butter pokes out,” the publication reports. “Chocolate peanut butter swirl ice cream, maybe with some actual mini buckeyes tossed in for good measure? Done.”

Brownie ranks as the favorite ice cream flavor of many people in Oklahoma. But The Daily Meal thinks that ice cream shops in the state should make watermelon into Oklahoma’s signature flavor instead. The publication characterizes watermelons as a “big cash crop” in the state. You could make an ice cream with locally-sourced watermelons and Oklahoma milk for a delicious take on the flavor.

According to Twitter, people in Oregon love coffee ice cream the most. But because Oregon produces more blackberries than any other state, The Daily Meal reports that these berries would make a delicious signature for the state. “If you’ve never had a fresh-picked wild blackberry you’re missing out,” the publication explains. “Turn them into ice cream and customers will be lining up around the block.”

Interestingly enough, The Daily Meal thinks that coffee is the perfect ice cream for the state. “This one’s another no-brainer, not because Rhode Island produces a lot of coffee (obviously), but because of Rhode Islanders’ affinity for something called coffee milk.” The official state drink, coffee milk is “made like chocolate milk, but instead of chocolate syrup, coffee syrup (usually Autocrat brand) is used.”

But another cookie, Benne wafers, would make a better signature flavor for the state, according to The Daily Meal. “Benne wafers are thin, crispy, sesame seed-based cookie/crackers brought to the Untied States by slaves,” the publication explains. The Colony Bakery in Charleston has served them for more than 100 years, and they could easily combine with vanilla ice cream for a novel flavor.

But coffee ice cream can’t possibly stack up against a frozen treat made to mimic an iconic Tennessee dessert called Mountain Stack Cake.

You could translate the flavor into an ice cream by creating a “frozen custard with some butter added for flavor, some cornmeal added for texture, and chunks of pie crust,” The Daily Meal explains.

But yet again, The Daily Meal suggests that residents of the state take advantage of a homegrown fruit to find their signature flavor. Washington produces more apples than any other state, the publication explains. So an apple crisp ice cream, made with apples and a sweet oat crumble, could make for a delicious dessert.

Surprisingly enough, the publication reports that “Wyoming actually produces some of the best melons in the country.” You could try a variety of different melons to find the perfect flavor, but The Daily Meal recommends cantaloupe ice cream as a particularly promising flavor profile.
