What Flavor are You?

Ice CreamA United States manufacturer of ice cream, Edy’s Grand Ice Cream, commissioned an ice cream flavorology study to determine how ice cream preferences relate to personality. The study, conducted by Dr. Alan R. Hirsch (M.D.) neurological director of the smell and taste treatment and research foundation in Chicago, revealed that distinct personalities correspond with ice cream flavors.

According to the official taster for Edy’s Grand Ice Cream, the flavorology research is fun “food for thought” to discuss around the dinner table. Before serving dessert, ask your family and friends to name their favorite ice cream flavor, then give them the scoop on their personality.

Analysis

  • If you like vanilla, you are colorful, impulsive, a risk taker who sets high goals and has high expectations of yourself. You also enjoy close family relationships. Gregarious, lives a hectic life. Easily suggestible, expressive, idealistic; a private person.Prototype: Lovelorn housewife.

 

  • If you like chocolate, you are lively, creative, dramatic, charming, enthusiastic and the life of the party. Chocolate fans enjoy being at the center of attention and can become bored with the usual routine. Seductive, well-dressed, extroverted, easily influenced, a follower, intuitive, enjoys intimate relationships.Prototype: Feminine woman, macho man.

 

  • If you like butter pecan, you are orderly, perfectionist, careful, detail-oriented, conscientious, ethical and fiscally conservative. You are also competitive, aggressive in sports and the take-charge type of personality.Prototype: Executive, secretary.

 

  • If you like banana, you are easy going, well adjusted, generous, honest and empathetic.Prototype: The perfect husband, wife, parent or child.

 

  • If you like strawberry, you are shy, yet emotionally robust, skeptical, detail-oriented, opinionated, introverted and self critical. Easily made to feel guilty; cranky, pessimistic, low self-esteem.Prototype: Bureaucrat, journalist.

The flavorology research also compiled a compatibility chart for ice cream lovers.

If your favorite flavor is:

  • Vanilla – you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is also vanilla.
  • Chocolate – you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is butter pecan or chocolate chip.
  • Butter pecan – you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is butter pecan, chocolate or chocolate chip.
  • Banana – you are compatible with all flavors.
  • Strawberry – you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is chocolate chip.
  • Chocolate chip – you are most likely to be compatible with someone whose favorite flavor is butter pecan or chocolate

So, do you have a guess at which flavor Master prefers — or dievca?
Or would you be willing to let us know which flavor you prefer? XO

    you always manage to come up with something new and fresh to write about, d. I don’t know you you do it! I’m not an ice cream person, which isn’t to say I don’t like your favorite flavor.

  3. Pelelotus says:

    Surprised that vanilla is associated with ‘risk taking’, considering normally refers to boring or bland. I guess you might be chocolate, M either butter pecan or vanilla. Personally I love mint ice cream. X

    • dievca says:

      Funny you mention that about vanilla — I thought the same thing when I read that~ Maybe they think of vanilla as a “blank canvas”….I do love chocolate. M. is not a big ice cream fan, but when we have had it- if I remember correctly, he went for vanilla. 😀

    Peanut Butter swirl

  5. Devonne says:

    Oh boy ice cream! It’s so hard to pick one favorite flavor though, can I make a banana split with all the flavors and share it? I just had lavender honey ice cream it was OMG wonderful and my favorite at the moment.

    • dievca says:

      I just love ice cream in general — I go through phases where green tea ends up in the freezer and rotates with coffee or chocolate or chocolate/peanut butter or butter pecan, etc. XO

  6. How curious! This will be the only time you’ll ever hear me say this – I am totally a vanilla girl!
    But, ‘ forlorn housewife’?? Never!!

      Absolutely! We KNOW you are not a “forlorn houswife” – promise. Vanilla is the perfect canvas for future creativity, a jumping point, so to speak. 🙂

  7. My favorite are Rocky Road or Cherry Chip! 🙂

  8. Heartafire says:

    I like pistachio…what does it mean?

    • dievca says:

      I have no clue! It was not one of the options — we can make up our own message? Pistachio: Sexy, Fresh and Green! Guaranteed to cool you on a hot day and pull you through the doldrums to succeed at anything you do!

  9. monkey says:

    My favorite is Chocolate… Chocolate with caramel, chocolate with peanut butter, chocolate with peppermint, Chocolate with raspberry or cherries or orange. I have been known to rock the lemon sorbet on hot days.
