The Top Ten Best Ice Cream Brands In The US

There’s nothing quite like a scoop of ice cream on a hot summer’s day. The debate about which flavor is the best will likely never be resolved, but we can probably all agree that some brands of ice cream are ranked higher than others in terms of quality and sales. When it comes to ice cream, there are dozens of brands available to consumers, but some rise to the top. Let’s count down our ranking of the best ice cream brands in the U.S. market today.
 
10 – BLUE BUNNY
 

 
Blue Bunny is the largest manufacturer of ice cream in the United States, securing their place on this list. They use quality ingredients and offer more than 70 flavors. Hard to argue with that!
 
9 – HÄAGEN-DAZS
 

 
This company has been producing top-shelf ice cream for more than 50 years. Their offering ranges from the classic (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, etc.) to the unique (peppermint bark, green tea, and more). They even have vegan ice cream selections!
 
8 – TILLAMOOK
 

 
Named after the town in Oregon where they are based, this company made its mark with cheese. They have since moved into the ice cream market with artisan ingredients.
 
7 – BREYERS
 

 
Established in 1866, Breyers first popped up in Philadelphia and has since expanded from coast to coast. Their business model was basic, but successful: use the finest, richest ingredients.
 
6 – DREYER’S
 

 
Joseph Edy started out making candy, who then partnered with William Dreyer in 1928 to form Edy’s Grand Ice Cream. Have you ever tied Rocky Road before? Because these are the guys who invented it. In 1953, the company changed by rebranding to Dreyer’s, which was sold in the 1970s and expanded to the East Coast.
 
5 – BLUE BELL
 

 
Started in Texas in 1907, this is a top-selling ice cream brand throughout the world. In the United States, they have a fine selection of seasonal flavors that include King Cake and Sea Salt Caramel.
 
4 – MAGNUM
 

 
Who says ice cream can’t be high-end? This company specializes in luxury ice cream. If you’ve never had it, treat yourself with one of their vanilla bars covered in Belgian chocolate.
 
3 – SKINNY COW
 

 
For those who want to indulge, but not pack on the pounds, this is a choice option. Their low-fat ice cream comes in a variety of forms and some really fun flavors with interesting names.
 
2 – REBEL
 

 
Anyone attempting the keto diet probably gets frustrated when they want to get a little ice cream worked into their menu. Rebel has that market locked down, with their low carb ice cream that’s high in fat and had no added sugar.
 
1 – BEN & JERRY’S
 

 
We saved the best for last! This company’s origins go back to Vermont in 1978, when Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield took a quick class in how to make ice cream and decided to open up their own shop. What really sets them apart, other than the great tasting ice cream, are the fun flavors that they designed.
