Ordering a vanilla ice cream cone does not mean you are bland. You may be surprised to discover a person who favors vanilla ice cream is far more spontaneous than someone who travels down a rockier road to arrive at the ice cream parlor.

Baskin-Robbins recently teamed with the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation to get the scoop on what its customers’ choices in ice cream suggest about the traits of their character.

“We uncovered quite a few surprising findings,” says Dr. Alan Hirsch, a nationally recognized smell and taste expert. “For instance, we found that people who prefer Rainbow Sherbet are more pessimistic than you would think, in spite of the flavor’s bright taste profile, and that those who prefer Rocky Road are actually very good listeners.”

The study found:

  • If your favorite flavor is Vanilla, you’re more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and an idealist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate, you’re more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.
  • If your favorite flavor is Very Berry Strawberry, you’re more likely to be a tolerant, devoted and an introvert.
  • If your favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate Chip, you’re more likely to be argumentative, frugal and cautious.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, you’re more likely to be ambitious, competitive and a visionary.
  • If your favorite flavor is Pralines ‘n Cream, you’re more likely to be loving, supportive and prefer to avoid the spotlight.
  • If your favorite flavor is Jamoca (i.e. coffee), you’re more likely to be scrupulous, conscientious and a moral perfectionist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip, you’re more likely to be generous, competent and a go-getter.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rainbow Sherbet, you’re more likely to be analytic, decisive and a pessimistic.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rocky Road, you’re more likely to be aggressive, engaging and a good listener.

If you’re more likely to need an excuse to indulge in ice cream, note July is National Ice Cream Month. Then, order an extra scoop.
