Vanilla Ice Cream Brands: The A to Z Giant List

According to National Geographic, vanilla ice cream was invented by the French sometime in the 18th Century. The first known recorded American recipe for this ice cream flavor was by Thomas Jefferson in the 1780s.

It is believed that Jefferson acquired the recipe during his travels to France between 1784 and 1789. According to scholars at Monticello, Jefferson likely helped popularize vanilla ice cream in America by serving it to guests while president.

Today, its no secret that vanilla ice cream is extremely popular given its versatility. It’s perfect on its own, with ice cream toppings, alongside pie, inside milkshakes, and for much more. In fact, most lists that rank ice cream flavors place vanilla at the top with chocolate coming in at a close second in terms of popularity.

Here you’ll find what is likely the most comprehensive list of vanilla ice cream brands on the internet along with the types of vanilla each brand produces. That being said, we are certain that we missed several brands out there. Maybe even some obvious ones!
