Mashable created a map based on buyer info from the mobile credit card company Square. According to the buying habits of Square users the favorite ice cream flavor in Idaho is Coffee. I refuse to believe that. There are so many other great all the other flavors. So here's what I think. Coffee won in Idaho because of availability at businesses using Square. In my mind those businesses would be aimed at a younger generation who understand that you can safely swipe your credit card on a strangers phone and transfer money. I also think (yes I'm generalizing) that a lot of millennial hipsters love coffee and technology. Yes - I'm blaming hipsters for the results of this study. Now give me a plain chocolate cone and get off my lawn.

July was National Ice Cream Month and there were some great ice cream related events in Twin Falls but if you need a new excuse to eat ice cream, remember that tomorrow is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day.
