Why Is Today National Ice Cream Day?!

It’s National Ice Cream Day! Actually, July is National Ice Cream Month and today being the third Sunday in July makes it officially National Ice Cream Day.  If you’re like me, you question whether this is a real holiday or something put together by Carvel to make us shove our faces with Pralines and Cream- (as if we needed an excuse) Well, according to Wikipedia, President Reagan recognized the importance of ice cream since 90% of the nation eats it.  He actually signed a proclamation in 1984 to designate July the month of celebration and the third Sunday as the official day.

Before you accept the holiday and head to your local homemade ice cream shop, think twice before before you order your flavor.  According to new research done by Allan Hirsch, founder of the Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation, along with Baskin Robbins,  they issued psychology testing to determine what flavor you order says a lot about you.  Here’s a sampling of what the study revealed:

  • 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 like me, you’re probably a lot of these things all scooped into one giant cup topped with fudge and peanut butter.  I’m not sure what that means besides that I’m a hot, fat mess.
