You’ve heard the saying “you are what you eat,” but ask us and it’s more about how you enjoy (or attack) your favorite pint that says a lot about who you are. Are you the gentle, caring type? Or a bold and adventurous explorer? Do you inhale your ice cream? Or carefully nibble like a mouse? Read on to see what your style is when it comes to eating a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.
For this one, the ice cream itself is an afterthought. Operating with laser-like focus, this treasure hunter goes straight for the gusto. Chunks of gooey, crunchy, euphoric goodness are no match for this sweet tooth’s spoon. Favorite flavors include Peanut Butter Cup and The Tonight Dough.
The Cliff Diver
Extreme in every way, including ice cream, the Cliff Diver prefers to live on the edge. Knowing there are two sides to every story, this adrenaline junky approaches their pint like a mixtape from the ‘80s, enjoying side A, knowing side B will be even better.
Never one to rough it, this smooth operator refuses anything but that perfectly creamy texture. Each layer of ice cream reveals a new swirl—an intricate dance of decadence as complex as the Smoothers themselves. Nearest and dearest flavors include Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Vanilla Caramel Fudge.
Spelunking to the center of the ice cream universe, the Tunneler goes straight to the heart of the matter, or in this case, “The Core.” Necessary accessories include safety goggles and a shovel-shaped spoon.
You won’t find any ice cream on this person’s shirt. The Perfectionist knows that a well-balanced bite is everything. Each spoonful is a work of art, carefully crafted with just the right ratio of Core to ice cream.
Sharing is caring, right? The Altruist lives by this mantra. Altruists know that a Ben & Jerry’s pint is packed with far too much goodness to keep to oneself. Call it good karma or just friendship—either way, they take “spooning” to a whole new level.
