10 Best Ice Cream Brands According To Social Media [Infographic]

The best desserts in the world have ice cream in them or on them. If I was stranded on a deserted island, and I could only bring five foods, a tub of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia ice cream would definitely be on the list. There’s just nothing like it. Obviously I’m a huge fan of Ben & Jerry’s, but what about the other ice cream brands? There are a ton of them out there, and I’m sure some of them have flavors that could rival my beloved Cherry Garcia.

July was national ice cream month in the States, and to celebrate, TrackMaven and iStrategyLabs created this infographic called 2013 Ice Cream Social. It lists the best (or most popular) ice cream brands according to social media. According to these statistics, Baskin Robbins beats Ben & Jerry’s, but that’s only based on their Klout score (which we all know is bogus to some extent).

If you look closely at this infographic, you’ll see that for all practical purposes, Ben & Jerry’s is number one (at least the way I’m interpreting it). Yay. When it comes to ice cream brands, one thing Ben & Jerry’s has been able to do well is to make themselves more than just an ice cream brand. Whether it’s Fake Ben & Jerry’s Flavors or silly Ben & Jerry’s Gadgets, bloggers love writing about the company. That says a lot about how they’ve positioned themselves.

Another thing that’s worth pointing out is that even though these are the most popular ice cream brands according to social media, they only take into account Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Klout. Social media encompasses a lot more than just those four areas. However, overall, I’d say this is a pretty good assessment. Now the question is, will you try a new ice cream flavor from a brand you haven’t had before?

    This should be listed as ” Best Ice cream Company’s of the Fortune Fiver Hundred”. You left out one of the best Bringham’s.

      Wow. I live in Texas and LIKE Bluebell, but it is a totally middle of the road Ice Cream. Dryers, Ben and Jerrys are all way better

    Blue bell is the best imo. Ben and Jerry is pretty good but just doesn’t compete with Blue bell. And it’s not even in the top ten. Shame.

    Those are well promoted brands and nothing more. Definitely not the best ice cream brands available on the market.

    Blue Bunny should be on here. Yeah, it’s my personal favorite. But it also has 707,000 likes on Facebook and 34,000 followers on Twitter. So not only should it be on this list, but it should be fairly up there as well.

    Also, Byrer’s shouldn’t even be on this list. Despite the amount of likes, followers and such, they can’t even legally call their product ice cream anymore. It’s a “frozen dairy desert”. Ew.

    Penn State has a good propaganda machine that wants you to believe that their ice cream is of superior quality but I disagree. Their vanilla and vanilla bean are especially terrible — no vanilla taste at all. Tom Palchak, the PSU creamery “manager” is incompetent,arrogant and doesn’t know what he is doing. And on top of that, it is very expensive!! Definitely not worth the price. It has the same reputation as Joe Paterno — phony, mythical!!

    Dippin Dots?? Seriously?? Have you ever tasted that crap? It’s a gimmick, not a great ice cream and it doesn’t even rate mention on here.
