Who doesn't love ice cream?

There's nothing better than queuing up at the ice cream van for your first Mr Whippy ice cream cone of the summer. Or, perhaps, walking round the park on a hot day with a fruity ice lolly.

In fact, it would seem Brits love ice cream whatever the weather. Apparently, British people are tenth in the world when it comes to ice cream consumption. On average we eat about 14 one litre tubs of ice cream per person per year!

If you're looking for a few facts about your fave sweet treat, we've got the scoop: did you know, for example, that it takes about 50 licks to eat a single scoop of ice cream?

Or that, whilst nobody quite knows who exactly invented ice cream, we do know that people were enjoying similar frozen treats as far back as Roman times?

Emperor Nero would send his servants to fetch snow from the mountains and make himself an icy treat by mixing it with honey and fruit.

Eating snow? What an... unusual delicacy.

Whatever its origin, we couldn't be more grateful it's here now. Are you ready for a bit of an ice-cream themed giggle? Take a look at our 60 ice cream jokes for kids. Who says you can't find an ice cream funny?
