What’s Your Ice Cream Love Language?

Pint of ice cream with a heart drawn in it

With Valentine’s Day (and Singles Awareness Day) knocking on your door, you may find yourself wondering what you need to fill your “love of ice cream tank”. Some people’s needs are filled by their significant others, some people are fulfilled by their friends and family, and then there are those who just need the love of good ice cream. Well, if you’re the latter, we’ve got you covered.


  1. Quality Toppings

    It’s the ice cream love language of the ages: really good toppings. Ice cream is the base layer of where you find your happiness, but it’s just not fulfilling enough unless you’ve got a range of topping options to top off that ice cream love tank. Whipped cream? Sure, but only if you add some cookie crumbles, sprinkles, and maybe even a donut on top. You take your toppings seriously, and we love you for it.

  2. Scoops of Affirmation

    Nothing says “I love you” more than a mound of ice cream scoops. You really like to see each and every scoop perfectly placed in a bowl before you dig in and feel really satisfied. Eating out of the tub seems like a waste when you can admire each chunk, every swirl, and the perfectly formed scoops as they start to get melty in your bowl. It’s an act of romance, for sure, and you enjoy savouring its beauty as it warms your ice cream-loving soul.

  3. Physical Tubs

    Your ice cream love language is all about the tub. You need to hold it while you eat out of it, you like to make sure you’ve got at least 2 in the freezer at all times, and you’re not big on sharing. If your friends want some ice cream, they can get their own bowl. You feel most satisfied when you’re in control of that tub, and possibly rubbing it softly while you tell it how much you love it.

  4. Chunk Giving

    That’s right, you love it when someone gives you the gift of ice cream, and the more chunks the better. There’s no shame in knowing that someone loves you when they know exactly how to touch your heart: showing up at your door with a tub of your favourite flavour, or buying you a waffle cone from your local scoop shop. Love is sweet, and you know what you want.

  5. Acts of Sweetness

    There is a saying:  don’t dish it out if you can’t take it. Well, this does not apply to you, dear ice cream-lover. You feel loved when someone else is willing to go to the freezer and bring you your favourite flavour and a spoon. Keep in mind, this is also how you like to show your love, so whoever is bringing you ice cream knows you’re willing to do the same. Sometimes it's the simplest act of love that is the sweetest.
