Ice Cream

It makes sense to start the list with ice cream, because it is perhaps the most popular and well known of all frozen treats. In the U.S., ice cream is a historic treat, with records dating it back to as early as 1700. Emack & Bolios and Ben and Jerry’s are popular ice cream chains for ice cream lovers around the nation. 

In terms of nutrition, ice cream is typically made from cream, sugar, and added flavors. A fast churning process whips a lot of air into ice cream, giving it more volume and a lighter texture. In the U.S., any product labeled “ice cream” must contain at least 10 percent milk fat.

Certain ice cream connoisseurs further differentiate between Philadelphia style ice cream, which refers to ice cream made with cream, sugar, and vanilla, and French style ice cream, which uses a custard base that includes egg yolks.
