A Pint Of Ice Cream Can Speak Gallons About Your Character

A while back a friend sent me a link that sounded fun, so today I took the What Ice Cream Flavor Are You? quiz.

The quiz introduction said it was loosely based on the science of "flavorology". Much to my surprise, there is real science behind it. A little research on my part found out that a survey conducted for Edy's by the Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation in 2005 determined personality characteristics that go along with a person's favorite flavor of ice cream.

The quiz had nine questions; each question had five answers to choose from. When my scores were calculated, I was a tie between Butter Pecan and Vanilla, although I had a bit of Strawberry mixed in too. In a nutshell, this is what those flavors say about me:
  • Butter Pecan: I am devoted, conscientious, respectful, fiscally conservative, and show integrity in all I do.
  • Vanilla: I am a colorful, dramatic risk taker who relies more on intuition than logic. I am emotionally expressive and idealistic.
  • Strawberry: I am a thoughtful, logical person who weighs each option before making decisions. In relationships, I am loyal and supportive.
Just like in most quizzes, there are no negative character traits represented, so I'm taking my answers with a big grain of salt. However, the quiz was a pleasant was to spend the end of a holiday weekend.


  1. I wonder what butter pecan ice-cream would taste like... I like coffee and chocolate... perfect combination but I'm afraid it no longer likes me so I have to have it on rare occasions when I feel like dealing with the consequences...

  2. Butter pecan has a white base--like vanilla--but includes chunks of pecans. Sometimes it has a bit of caramel mixed in.

  3. Hmmm, I like ice-cream but rarely eat it. I prefer cake, if I'm indulging. Maybe that's where the negative character traits come in. :-)
