      Seems I'm a flirt and romantic at heart! Would love some ice cream right now in our hot summer in NZ! Here in NZ one of the most popular flavors is Hokey Pokey which is vanilla ice cream with chunks of honeycomb...called hokey pokey. Wonder what personality that would be!

      I'm a non conformist also. But seriously, is there any such thing as ice cream that's NOT good? If so, I would love to check it out for myself. Life without ice cream would lose its luster.

      My favorite flavor is banana but I wouldn't say "No" to other flavors too. I had fun reading about how ice cream preferences relate to personality!

    • Wednesday-Elf profile image


      6 years ago from Savannah, Georgia

      I like Vanilla, but I chose Other in the poll because my favorite flavor(s) weren't listed. I like any ice cream with nuts in it (Butter Pecan, Snickers, Black Walnut, etc.), but my very favorite way to eat ice cream is as a Hot Fudge Sundae (vanilla ice cream, hot fudge sauce, lots of peanuts, and smothered in whipped cream. :) So what does that say about me? Probably that I'll get fat if I eat it too often...LOL. Enjoyed your ice cream page, which looks very yummy on this polka dot theme.

      I don't if they're right or not. There's so many flavors I can't live without! If I had to pick one, though, it would probably be Moose Tracks.

      My most favourite flavour of icecream is Orange choc chip. Yummy. It was available in New Zealand but I haven't had any for 10 years - not since I left NZ. Vanilla is my second favourite flavour.

      Must say a unique lens. Ice cream lovers would love to melt in this taste too. Here's a healthy advice for those who truly madly loves ice creams and ice cream making.

      I recommend people not to use sugar:

      Some instances all-natural sweetness of fruit is ample. Our taste buds are spoiled and do not realize pure sweet taste, but right after several days of weaning from sugary snacks, they will acknowledge the organic sweetness of meals.

      Ice cream maker will keep the taste of fruit intact. Don't worry about that.

      Ice cream is like a flower for me: Whichever one I'm enjoying in the moment is my favorite. But the ones I pick most often (partly due to availability) were spot on, and each reflected a slightly different take on my personality.

      Truly, who doesn't like ice cream? That's very, very sad. I like vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chip, and butter pecan - does that mean I'm confused? Or just love ice cream?

      Ice cream taster sounds like an awesome job! Unfortunately, it's not for me, since I always order the same flavor, which makes me a traditionalist according to the quiz. Just give me a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream and I'm good to go. I can't believe it didn't make the list of most popular flavors :( Anyway, this is a wonderful page and I really enjoyed my visit here. 5* for sure!

      See, I just can't decide. One day I'm into mint chocolate chip. Another day it's vanilla ... but it has to have a topping or something mixed in with it. Then I'll have a day when I'd swear that chocolate is my flavor. So ... I wonder what that says about my personality? Hm. Anyway, very fun lens. And now I'm craving Ben & Jerry's.
