The Way You Eat Your Ice Cream Says Something Big About Your Personality

Share on Facebook

Rejoice, 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.

And the results are pretty interesting. Who knew the way we eat ice cream could actually help us know ourselves better?

We all know that different foods can mean a different things to different people. And those of us out there who are obsessed with ice cream and all thing sweet can now have an excuse to indulge: “I’m just getting to know myself better.”

First up is the classic ice cream sundae. If your go-to ice cream enjoyment involves diving into a sundae, chances are you’re… Determined and ambitious! Yep, that sounds about right.

Don’t worry: according to Boghossian, if you love to enjoy your sweet treat in a cone, this means you’re a positive person. You’re an optimist, and like to look at everything through a hopeful lens.

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…

And that’s fine. That’s OK. Milkshakes are delicious and easy to consume. If you’re one of those people that prefers milkshakes to the perfection that is regular ice cream, then you’re most likely an open-minded risk-taker.

While your immediate reaction to eating ice cream out of the container might be, “Oh, this person is sad” — that’s actually not true! So if you’ve got a penchant for sitting on your couch, binging your favorite TV show, and eating Ben & Jerry’s straight out of the pint, it simply means that you’re… Resourceful and a strong leader.

Especially since the average American consumes roughly 48 pints of ice cream a year! That’s … a lot of ice cream.

America is the number-one consumer of ice cream worldwide, which isn’t very surprising. We can’t help it if we like our dessert.

It could tell you a lot about yourself. And also, let’s just all eat more ice cream, please.
