Iceberger tops Irish ice cream sales

The warm weather this week has whipped up interest in ice cream so Tesco Ireland has delved into ice cream sales to see what ice cream and ice pops are most popular with shoppers. Often it is a change in temperature from one day to the next which has the biggest impact on sales but ice cream sales peak during temperatures of 17-20 degrees, with uplifts of up to 60% in ice cream sales in shops across Ireland.

According to the latest supermarket share figures from Kantar Worldpanel in Ireland, Tesco is the market leader for ice cream sales in Ireland with 32 percent market share. The top 15 ice creams in Ireland according to sales this year in Tesco stores are:
