It’s Saturday night and you’re cuddled up on the couch with the one you love the most, only to realise you may be in a relationship with that pint of ice cream you’re holding in your hand. So the question is, what’s your type? We’ve laid out what it might be like if you were dating your favourite flavour.
Phish Food - The Sweet One
Judging it by its chocolate base, Phish Food may seem a little old fashioned at first, but there’s so much more complexity to this flavour that will keep you on your toes. Incredibly sweet, with gooey swirls of affection, Phish Food is the kind of flavour that’s not afraid of PDAs and will stick with you until the very end…of the pint, that is.
Cookie Dough - The Friend with Benefits
A true homebody, Cookie Dough is perfectly content snuggling up in pyjamas and watching a movie on the couch. It’s uncomplicated with simple tastes, but make sure you don’t put this one in the friend zone. This is a subtle romance that could last a lifetime, so at least brush your hair before you see each other.
Half Baked - Full of Potential
This flavor is full of all your favorite things, so you can’t help but want to keep it around for the long-term. Its vanilla and chocolate ice cream base has you thinking it could be kind of traditional at heart. It’s sweet and full of fudge brownie and cookie dough surprises, however it has a habit of sitting on the couch playing video games for hours on end, and spending all its money on concerts and comic books, but you love it just the same. You just wish it would put pants on and take you out once it a while.
Strawberry Cheesecake - The Romantic
Dinner dates with Strawberry Cheesecake are always a classy affair, and every meal includes a dessert course. This classic jetsetter has traveled the world and will expose you to the finer things in life. It’s a whirlwind strawberry romance, but that thick biscuit swirl will catch you when you swoon.
Clever Cookies - The Unexpected Challenge
You think you know everything about this flavour just by looking at it. You’ve seen this predictable, vanilla type before and don’t have any great expectations. But once you get a taste of the cookie complexities inside, you realise your mistake. This clever cookie will intrigue you, and it could be the greatest love affair of all.
Chocolate Fudge Brownie - The Handy Man
Dependable and always willing to please, Chocolate Fudge Brownie delivers on its promises. Rich and fudgy, this is the flavour that will rub your shoulders after installing your air conditioner. Call on Chocolate Fudge Brownie when you’ve got a “to do” list a mile long and want to get the job done right.
All or Nutting - The Ultimatum
You were afraid to commit to this nutty flavour in favour of one more familiar, but it’s a good thing you didn’t get cold feet. Once you get a taste of what’s inside you immediately wish you’d given it a chance sooner. This flavour is sweet and generous to its very core, and before you know it, you want to spend time with it every day. Yes, it’s wholly nutty…nutty for you.
Peanut Butter Cup - The Heartbreaker
Love at first bite is an understatement. Indulgent and irresistible, Peanut Butter Cup will captivate you from the outset. You dive spoon-first in love with its plentiful peanut butter cups, but before you know it things have moved too fast and all that’s left is plain old peanut butter ice cream. Love hurts: Next time, pace yourself.
Cherry Garcia - The Rock Star
This famous flavour’s reputation is well known around the world, but that doesn’t make Cherry Garcia any less desirable. Many have waited by the backstage door just to get a taste of this super star. Everybody wants a piece of this flavour…even if it's just to see what the hype is all about.
Chunky Monkey - The Wild One
Exotic, adventurous and a little bit nutty, Chunky Monkey will get your adrenaline pumping. You’ve heard stories of how wild this party animal can be, which is what keeps drawing you back. Have fun, but don’t get too attached; it’s a beast that won’t be tamed by anyone.
