  3. Americans consume more ice cream than any other nation in the world--some 48 pints per person per year!
  4. 9% of our total milk production goes to making ice cream.
  5. Immigrants arriving at Ellis Island were served ice cream as a welcome. (Maybe that's how Americans started developing their taste for ice cream.)
