tasting spoonAmericans love their ice cream, and research shows that in any given two-week period, 40% of Americans will dip their tasting spoons into something frozen and delicious. But did you know that how you eat your ice cream says a lot about your personality? Here's a guide on what your ice cream eating style says about you.

In a waffle cone

You are a go-getter that is always on the move. For you, there is always something to see or do, and you want your desserts to be as portable as possible. You enjoy experiences rather than physical things, and you wouldn't be caught dead without your camera. While you may feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to get things done, you do like to sit down once in a while and enjoy the simple things. And for you, that might mean a fresh and slightly warm in-house waffle cone full of chocolate custard.

A simple bowl with a few toppings
Those who eat their ice cream solely out of paper ice cream cups are all about savoring the finer details in life. You want to enjoy every spoonful of your dessert to the last minute -- and we can't say we blame you!-- as you see this as an investment into your culinary experience. Very detailed oriented and neat, you like to take each step slowly and pensively.

An ice cream sandwich
There are so many flavor opportunities when eating an ice cream sandwich that you just can't resist. You're an eccentric individual with a passion for everything and anything different, and always have to stand out from the crowd. Plus, there is no need for tasting spoons and cups, so you can just grab your sammie and go.

Out of the carton
You are a purist and like to enjoy ice cream exactly how it was meant to be consumed -- out of the carton. No matter if you are sitting on the couch watching a basketball game or on your porch with a few friends, your ice cream carton is always by your side. This way you can eat to your heart's content, and what else could you want?

So how do you eat your ice cream?
