It might be time to stock up on a few pints of your favorite flavor from your local Hy-Vee or ALDI just in case you have a craving.

However, we got one or two people say that their favorite was the same as the state favorite ice cream.

According to a study done by Instacart and Taste of Home, the most popular types of ice cream aren't the standard vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry.

Have you even heard of green tea ice cream?

If you're unfamiliar with this AMAZING flavor, it's essentially just vanilla ice cream with fudge and peanut butter cups. YUM!

This was the most popular flavor in twelve states including Michigan, Wisconsin, and Nebraska!
