What your ice cream preference reveals about your love life

Does your ice cream preference say more about you than you think? Strawberry ice cream fanatics are more likely to find love earlier than their chocolate and vanilla ice cream loving counterparts, according to new research. A poll of 2,000 Americans based on top ice cream flavors (vanilla, strawberry and chocolate) found that on average, strawberry ice cream lovers find love at age 24 — a year before their vanilla ice cream loving counterparts and two years before their chocolate ice cream adoring counterparts. If you like doing laundry, watching a sci-fi movie and listening to the soothing sounds of jazz, then you are likely a strawberry ice cream fanatic. However, when playing truth or dare, it's vanilla ice cream fans who won't hesitate to say dare while chocolate ice cream lovers prefer the truth. The study conducted by OnePoll, in conjunction with Breyers®, aimed to discover the personality differences between Americans who prefer vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream and found vanilla ice cream fanatics are introverted, prefer dogs over cats, prefer washing dishes over doing laundry and are night owls. This is different from chocolate ice cream lovers who are more extroverted, enjoy a romantic comedy and love listening to pop music. Chocolate ice cream lovers also tend to have more variety in their interests. In addition to pop music, chocolate ice cream lovers prefer rock and R&B music compared to their vanilla and strawberry ice cream loving counterparts. When it comes to the ideal way to enjoy ice cream, Americans prefer their scoops in cups — topped with three different toppings. Chocolate chips rank as the number one ice cream topping among Americans followed by hot fudge (49%), nuts (40%), whipped cream (37%) and caramel (35%).
