3. What is the best-selling flavor of all time?
4. What was the first company to sell chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream?
5. What type of spoon do professional ice cream testers use to taste product because it leaves virtually no trace of flavor from what was on it before?
6. What popular beverage was originally created as a syrup intended as an ice cream topping?
7. "I'm your ice cream man, stop me when I'm passing by. They say all my flavors are guaranteed to satisfy." What is the name of the band who sings that song?
