Summary
The indulgent nature of Ice Cream makes it a popular category and as appealing as ever, with consumers demanding innovative products that meet their desire for new and exciting experiences. Manufacturers have responded with the introduction of premium ingredients and greater experimentation with flavor combinations. Having said this, there is a growing emphasis on healthier alternatives, with frozen yogurt providing stiff competition. Overall, the desire for indulgence remains, however there is a growing trend among health conscious consumers, who are taking active steps to seek out healthier substitutes.

Key Findings
- Rising food prices are impacting consumers' purchasing power, resulting in consumers preferring value for money Ice Cream. This is helping boost consumption of private label products

- Health is increasingly playing an important role in the consumption habits of US consumers; however, there is still a strong desire for Indulgent Ice Cream 

- Consumers are making more of a conscious effort to take time out to relax and think about themselves. This is causing an increased desire for Ice Cream positioned around comfort eating and “me time”.
