We tried to pass and keep in place a soda/pop tax for Washington state a few years back.

I think the logic that taxing ice cream (and then all other sugary things) will follow as a result of soda taxes is flawed. Soda is a dietary issue because it’s ridiculously cheap and incredibly easy to consume. Ice cream is rarely as cheap and not really the type of thing one can consume in mass quantities at every meal the way people consume soda. No one is throwing a pint of ice cream into their bag to snack on throughout the day.
