(NAPSA) - Whether it's ice cream, frozen custard, gelato or novelties, America loves frozen desserts. In fact, 98 percent of all U.S. households purchase ice cream. The five most popular flavors are vanilla, chocolate, butter pecan, strawberry and Neapolitan.

If you have wondered what some of the terminology in the ice cream aisles means, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says:
