What's your scoop?
What's the unofficial treat of summer? Ice cream or any kind of delicious frozen treat, of course! There's nothing better on a hot day than something sweet and cold.
Do you remember asking if you could get an ice cream when you were a kid? Every age loves and craves it, and it's something you can serve for special occasions or just as a simple dessert.
Since astrology and our zodiac signs dictate so much about our likes, dislikes and personality characteristics, it's no surprise that the stars know which is the best kind of ice cream for you. Are they correct? You might have to have a scoop or two to find out.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Coconut Ash ice cream
You're adventurous and like to try new things, so why not try this year's trendiest ice cream? It's coconut ash from Morgenstern's NY. It's made up of coconut cream, coconut milk and coconut flakes. The coconut ash (charred and processed remains of a coconut shell) create the black color.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Fancy vanilla ice cream
Taurus has a sweet tooth and a deep appreciation of beauty, so you generally like ice cream. But give you a really well-made ice cream, plated beautifully with a rich sauce or topping, and you're in heaven!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Salted caramel ice cream
Geminis know the power of putting two opposing things, like salt and sweet, together. Each flavor helps to highlight the other.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cookies and cream ice cream
Cancer is a very emotional sign, and there's nothing more comforting than cookies and cream ice cream. It's great when you have two treats in one!
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Ice cream cake
When you indulge in something cold and delicious, you want to be able to share it with a crowd. And you also want something that stands out from the usual cone or cup. Why not have a slice? It's always a good time for a party with Leo.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Avocado frozen yogurt
You like to be healthy and stay fit, so you're going to choose something that not only tastes good and cools you down, but something that's good for you. Vegan avocado frozen yogurt is non-dairy, heart-healthy and surprisingly delicious.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Rocky Road ice cream
Libras crave harmony, and what's more harmonious than chocolate, nuts and marshmallows being combined together for a yummy ice cream? This way Libra has three of their favorite flavors together and they don't have to choose.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Gelato
When a Scorpio likes something, they get passionate about it. And ice cream is no different. Of course, a Scorpio would want the creamiest, sweetest and most indulgent of all ice cream, and they would know the best place to get it in their town.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): France's famous Berthillon ice cream
Sagittarius will travel for ice cream. Well, they're always looking for an excuse to travel, but as long as they're there they might as well indulge in some of the best ice cream in the world. What makes Berthillon the long-standing grande dame of glaces? It could be the texture, the perfection of the small scoop, or maybe the unusual flavors like praline and pine nuts, wild strawberry, or prune cognac. Oh yeah, and it's in Paris!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Frozen custard
The difference between ice cream and frozen custard is that frozen custard is made with eggs, which gives it a thicker yet smoother consistency than ice cream. Frozen custard is solid, like a Capricorn. It's so solid that you can turn a concrete (frozen custard version of a shake), turn it upside down and it won't fall out.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Coffee ice cream
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Secret Breakfast ice cream
One thing about Pisces is that they're very creative, imaginative and they hate to be bored, even with food. Humphry Slocombe ice cream in San Francisco has incredibly unique ice creams with names such as Elvis (the fat years), Jesus Juice Sorbet, and Government Cheese. Secret Breakfast has bourbon and Corn Flakes in it, and the flavor is not only not expected but delectable.
