ejoice, my fellow sweet-tooth companions! Something cool has just been revealed about ice cream, and it's not your doctor or mom telling you to please stop eating so much. In fact, it has absolutely nothing to do with nutritional value. Great news, right?
Thanks to a recent study conducted by Baskin-Robbins, we now know that the way in which we eat our ice cream can actually tell us a lot about our personality. It's like a personality test come to life, but one that tastes absolutely delicious.

But cones aren't for everyone. Sometimes you've just got to eat your French vanilla or mint-chocolate chip in a cup.
Which translates to: you’re a practical, logical thinker and totally level-headed. That makes sense. Ice cream in a cup is safety. There’s no real fear of spillage. No stress about what to do if you take a bite of the cone and the whole thing cracks. Cups are safe. Cups are good.
But there are other ways to consume ice cream…
