5 Ice Cream Facts You Probably Didn’t Know

Living in Canada, you might consume an average of 4.5L of ice cream each year like many of your fellow Canucks. Every time you make those tough choices walking through frozen food aisles, you give your vote to one of many competing ice cream brands. The bulk of those consumer choices, made nationwide, is carefully followed and analysed by companies like the Nielsen Corporation. Based on the latest reports from 2020, this is what Canadian consumers voted for:

  1. French Vanilla is Canada’s favourite Premium flavour.

According to Canadians, the best Chapman’s Premium flavour is French Vanilla – followed by Black Cherry and Butter Pecan. The versatility of French Vanilla is unmatched, making it a must have in most freezers. From scooping on top of a warm apple crisp to mixing in a milkshake, there are endless ways to enjoy this flavour.

  1.   Chapman’s is Canada’s #1 novelty brand.

When it comes to your favourite single-serve ice cream cones, bars and sandwiches, Chapman’s is Canada’s #1 choice. According to the latest Nielsen report, Canadians bought more Chapman’s ice cream novelties in 2020 than any other brand. Fun fact: we use over 300,000,000 ice cream sticks every year for these treats. If lined up end to end, our sustainably sourced sticks would travel the full circumference of the earth every year!

  1.  Our Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich is Canada’s favourite.

Canadians buy more Chapman’s ice cream sandwiches than any other brand. Made in a Nut and Peanut Free facility, this is a perfect on-the-go treat for everyone in the family. We at Chapman’s make enough sandwiches a year for each Canadian to have one. Did you know we use more than 70 million cookies for our ice cream sandwiches annually? That is enough cookies to stretch from PEI to BC’s Victoria Island.

  1.  Canada’s favourite frozen yogurt is Chapman’s Vanilla.

With a creamy and smooth texture, it’s difficult to believe that this frozen yogurt is made with only 3% butterfat. It’s no wonder it has won over the hearts of so many people, especially those who are trying to decrease their calorie and fat intake. What other frozen yogurt flavours are leading the way? Black Jack Cherry and Dutch Chocolate are not far behind Vanilla!

  1.   Chapman’s Rainbow Sorbet is Canada’s favourite Sorbet flavour.

This Sorbet is a mixture of sweet raspberry, refreshing orange and a little kick of lime. Made with natural fruit juices and purees, this product is also Lactose Free, Peanut Free, Nut Free and Gluten Free. The only thing that’s not missing is flavour! No wonder so many shoppers put it at the top of their list.
