With so many new food tastes and culinary experiences arising around the world, it is good to know that some tastes can still be depended on – good old chocolate ice cream.

New data shows that 113 out of 121 countries searched for chocolate ice cream more than any other flavor in the past year. In a single month 97,790 people across the world wondered where they could buy their favorite flavor which equates to over 1,173,480 a year for those cravers of ice cream.

Number two on the list was vanilla ice cream with more than one million searches (1,070,520) per year, followed closely by mint chocolate chip ice cream flavor at 713,520 searches per year.

The data was revealed in a recent story from Lexham Insurance, a leading insurance provider, who provide cover for ice cream vans across the UK.

Over the border in France they (perhaps unsurprisingly) love neapolitan with 500 monthly searches for the colorful ice cream.

Showcasing the difference in tastes, number one in Iceland was toffee flavored ice cream, which was also the favourite flavour of Austria and Bahrain in the Middle East.
