Southerners often pick chocolate and vanilla as their top flavors. Special photo.

Of 2,183 adults surveyed online between July 11 and 18, 2011 by Harris Interactive, different groups showed they have their different favorite flavors.
For example, three in ten Easterners (31 percent) and Midwesterners (32 percent) say chocolate is their favorite while three in ten Southerners (30 percent) prefer vanilla. Westerners have a close race for top flavor with 22 percent saying vanilla, 21 percent saying chocolate and 19 percent saying cookie dough/cookies and cream and rocky road.
There are also political differences in ice cream flavors. One-third of Republicans say chocolate is their favorite flavor (32 percent) followed by vanilla (28 percent) and cookie dough/cookies and cream (24 percent). One-quarter of Democrats, on the other hand, say vanilla is their favorite (26%) followed by chocolate (23 percent) and then butter pecan/Swiss almond (22 percent). For Independents, it is chocolate first (30 percent) followed by cookie dough/cookies and cream (24 percent) and then vanilla (22 percent).
