The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
My pick for who won the week this week is ice cream.
Yes, ice cream. As many of you know, I indulge in a bowl of ice cream almost every night. And I recently read an article that said that there’s never been a better time to eat ice cream.
By providing stay-at-home comfort during the pandemic, the $7 billion ice cream industry increased by 17% in 2020. That year, ice cream makers in the U.S. churned out just over 1 billion gallons of ice cream, up 6% from 2019.
And in the first five months of 2021, hard ice cream production ran 4% ahead of 2020 levels. From March through May of this year, sales of frozen novelties like fudgesicles and ice cream bars were running 24% ahead of the same period in 2019.
So shout it out with me, folks…
We all scream
For ice cream!
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
