You may not have been craving fries on National Fries Day in scorching weather earlier this week, but National Ice Cream Day, which falls on Sunday, may be more palatable.

Like just about everything, the price of ice cream goes up year after year. However, demand continues. Premium brands are losing ground to cheaper brands, and frozen novelties like ice cream sandwiches and popsicles are outselling regular ice cream.

Here are some more ice cream stats:

According to a Cincinnati-based retail data company 84.51°, the ice cream flavor most Americans crave is chocolate, which got 36% of the vote, followed by cookies and cream (25%). Mint Chocolate Chips and Buttered Pecans tied for third at 24% each.

The company claims that 72% of us will get our ice cream fix at the grocery store, while 26% will get theirs at an ice cream shop.
