Councilman Dee Andrews, who proposed a plan to regulate the noise created by ice cream trucks in Long Beach, might be up against some serious competition. A study just released by Bundle states that Long Beach consumes more ice cream than any other city in the country.

Dallas, Texas came in a close second in their study. But Los Angeles, with it's countless creameries and endless amounts of international ice treats, didn't even make the top 10. How the heck did that happen?

Maybe everyone in L.A. has just been waiting for National Ice Cream Month (July) to roll around? Or perhaps things will change now that Portland's Salt & Straw has arrived on our home turf.

Whatever the case may be, we're proud of our Southern brethren in the LBC for making the cut. And Bundle made this adorable little infographic to accompany their research. Now we want some Scoops.
