I scream, you scream, we *all* scream for鈥 relief from the burden of social pressures, being overworked and under-appreciated, not taking time for ourselves 鈥 the list goes on! When we feel gross about life and our prevailing perils, it鈥檚 important to stop, reevaluate and take a serious breather. And by breather, we of course mean inhaling your favorite ice cream, because rage聽yoga doesn鈥檛 always cut it. The next time you burrow your tongue into your favorite frozen treat and contemplate how to cope, consider this ice cream personality guide as a reminder of who you truly are and where you stand. I mean, we are supposed to take ice cream seriously, right?


1. Vanilla: 鈥淏ecause I鈥檓 boring like that,鈥 says every person who opts for vanilla ice cream. But come on; let鈥檚 give you some credit. You like things simple and straighforward. You aren鈥檛 a fan of unnecessary change, and if it ain鈥檛 broke, why the heck should you fix it? Plus, if you do get the urge to be fancy, there鈥檚 always French vanilla or Vanilla bean. That鈥檚 all the luxury you need.


2. Chocolate: True lovers of chocolate are *devoted* lovers of chocolate, so you鈥檙e about as loyal as they come (albeit a little flirtatious). You can be a bit theatrical, but your wit and charm score the hearts of many. All of this, in addition to your appreciation for intensity and richness in life, means you鈥檙e a total romantic.

Butterscotch Ripple

3. Butterscotch Ripple: Butterscotch is a true classic that has been buried by an influx of newer flavors over the last few decades. If butterscotch remains your fave, you鈥檙e probably an old soul who finds joy in life鈥檚 simplest moments, or鈥 fine. We鈥檒l just say it. If butterscotch is your favorite, you鈥檙e probably retired and have a Werther鈥檚 Original in your pocket right now.


4. Strawberry: Despite being a bit of a wallflower, you have an effervescent spirit, and everyone needs a friend like you to keep them balanced. You鈥檙e well rooted and family oriented, and you try to see the good in everyone. Even if you鈥檙e living in a big city, you possess the modest characteristics of small-town folk.


5. Coffee: You are a total whirlwind鈥 of success! You鈥檙e tenacious and your ambition leads you to great victory. You鈥檙e basically the poster child for #goals, and nothing holds you back in life. If you could syphon some of that energy and momentum into the rest of us, that would be great, 颅thanks!


6. Pistachio: You ache for travel,颅 but not the kind of travel that involves islands, fruity drinks and a sunburn. You want to feed your mind and soul. You long to drift through an olive orchard in Tuscany, and you dream about nibbling on Camembert before strolling around the Mus茅e d鈥橭rsay.

choco chip cookie dough

7. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: You鈥檙e about as chill as your ice cream. You don鈥檛 get worked up over nothing, and you鈥檙e content just rolling with the punches. Because of this, you鈥檙e not afraid of a little (or a lot of) indulgence, and why should you be? A handful of cookie dough never hurt anyone鈥 right?

cookies n cream

8. Cookies 鈥檔鈥 Cream: Milk and cookies, huh? You know how to be an adult, but you鈥檙e a total kid at heart. You might even still thumb through comic books and play video games with no pants on. (That鈥檚 acceptable, right?) Despite all your successes in life, you refuse to give up your true self, and that should be celebrated. Preferably with cookies smashed into ice cream.

black cherry

9. Black Cherry: You鈥檙e a profound individual with an amazing sense of self. You鈥檙e honest, waste no time on judgment and know how to enrich your life with the most basic means. Sometimes you dream about backpacking abroad; other times you dream about settling into the countryside and growing your own produce.

mint choco chip

10. Mint Chocolate Chip: You are blunt and have zero tolerance for nonsense. You know what you want in life and you aren鈥檛 going to settle for less 颅鈥 the proof is in the cone! Those who dig mint chocolate chip ice cream are pretty serious about it. The ice cream must be minty green in color, and the chocolate chips must never be replaced with chocolate ripples. Be real, or get out.

pralines and cream

11. Pralines and Cream: You鈥檙e one of the easiest people to get along with. You鈥檙e affable and thoughtful, and you鈥檙e willing to go the extra mile for those you care about, with no expectations in return. With all that considered, you鈥檙e obviously pretty great to spend time with,颅 especially for those of your friends who are a little on the anxious side. Thankfully, your presence is soothing.

choco pb

12. Chocolate Peanut Butter: You鈥檙e strong, courageous and well颅 respected, and in many situations you鈥檙e the one holding everything (and everyone) together. Much like lovers of mint chocolate chip, you won鈥檛 settle for anything less than what you鈥檙e after, especially where ice cream is involved. You want a rich chocolate base with a thick ribbon of peanut butter 鈥 keep those dinky peanut butter cups out of it!

green tea

13. Green Tea: You thrive on experiencing new things. You don鈥檛 jump on trends because it鈥檚 the cool thing to do; you jump on trends because it鈥檚 a new and exciting adventure. #YOLO, amirite? You鈥檝e tried yoga, you鈥檝e gone to a sip-and-paint class, you French press your coffee and you鈥檙e probably baking your way through the Momofuku Milk Bar book right now. You just keep doing you.

tiger tail

14. Tiger Tail: You鈥檙e the heckler at sporting events, and sarcasm is your middle name. Though sometimes a bit rambunctious and (playfully) cocky, you鈥檙e a solid friend once people get to know you. Your pals can depend on you for pretty much anything, anytime. You鈥檙e a big personality with an even bigger heart鈥 but we鈥檒l keep that last part on the down-颅low.


15. Neapolitan: You are indecisive AF, but hey, it happens. In a world full of options, decisions are hard. You鈥檙e that same individual who can never decide on a restaurant, which shirt to buy or what drink to order at the bar. Thus, an affinity for the win-win-win trifecta that is Neapolitan ice cream.
