It seems we're turning to ice cream to cool down during the hot weather.
With temperatures expected to reach 31°C in parts of the country, HB anticipates the total number of HB ice creams sold this week could reach 2 million.
That means, on average, more than 11 ice creams will be bought every second this week.
The Iceburger is Ireland's most popular ice cream, with more than 1 being bought every single second. Coming in at second is HB's iconic Brunch.
Paul Kelly, Head of Marketing, at Unilever said: “We know Irish people are massive ice cream enthusiasts, however, its undeniable that when the mercury rises it brings out the super fan in all of us. Chilling out, cooling down and enjoying your favourite HB ice cream whether it be an Iceberger, Brunch, Cornetto, Calippo or Maxi Twist is undoubtedly one of the best ways to beat the heat this summer.”
