How bloody good is ice cream though?! 

Clearly, Kiwis love the cold creamy treat as Tip Top has released some stats that reveals just how much ice cream we buy. 

On top of that, they also disclosed the top three flavours that we snap up at the supermarket.

So whilst our hearts are screaming for cookies and cream, our wallets are overpowering it with its purchase of vanilla...?
