Living in Florida means there’s a good chance you love warmer, more tropical climates. It also means your preferred junk food of choice may be on the cooler side in order to combat that heat.

If you agree, you’re a true Floridian.

According to Google trends research conducted by Bid-On-Equipment, the most popular junk food in the state of Florida is none other than Häagen-Dazs ice cream, followed by tres leches cake and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
