vanilla and chocolate ice cream cones
Red states and blue states don’t just disagree about politics — they take sides on ice cream flavors, too. In a Harris Interactive poll, Republicans preferred chocolate over other flavors (followed by vanilla and cookie dough), while Democrats chose vanilla as their favorite (chocolate came in second, and butter pecan third). Independent voters sided with the Republicans, but a majority of Americans agreed on one contentious issue: 52 percent said that hot fudge is their favorite topping.
