First of all, there is a big difference between “enjoying” ice cream and “needing” ice cream - so for the sake of time, we will not even discuss the one-person, one-spoon and one-carton method of scarfing down the frozen medicine of your choice.
But during your saner moments – do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or a cone? Easy question, right?
For the cone, there are so many more styles of eating.
One could be a licker. This style of eater - most often seen with softer versions of ice cream - can branch off into the "swirly lickers" or "one-side-at-a-time lickers."
One could be a biter: the firmer ice creams encourage biting. Some people nibble slowly and gently to make their ice cream last, while other people take huge bites of frozen dessert directly from the top of the cone and the ice cream disappears quickly. This latter breed is often spotted by the pained look on their faces from brain freeze.
Some mix it up – a little biting, then licking. And many people finish off their treat by biting the pointy end of the cone off and sucking those last bits of the melted dessert out.
