It’s that time of year again when you’re surrounded by reminders of love everywhere you go. From explosions of red and pink hearts and people professing their love on social media—to flowers and giant teddy bears galore—there’s no escaping it. (Seriously, who is buying all those Mylar balloons? We need to know.) As experts in all things ice cream and love (ok, technically just ice cream), we put together a list of our unofficial Valentine’s Day ice cream flavors and what they say about your outlook on love. Find your favorite below and let us know if we nailed it, or if we should stick to our day jobs.
Bad Breakup® – The name says it all. If this is your Valentine’s Day ice cream of choice, you’re probably either drowning your sorrows mourning the one that got away (news flash: they’re not “the one” if they got away, keep your chin up!), or you are not playing into the whole V-Day troupe. Do we really need a whole holiday to remind us of how sad and lonely we are? Sheesh. So grab a spoon and that pint, ice cream heals all wounds. (And maybe avoid the grocery store until they switch everything over to Easter décor.) This sea salt caramel chocolate ice cream with milk fudge swirls and fudge filled hearts is perfect for every occasion, but definitely hits the spot even more this time of year.
White Raspberry Twist – Isn’t love grand? If this is your go-to, you’ve probably been with your sweetheart for quite some time. You enjoy slow dancing in the kitchen, holding hands on long car rides and just being in each other’s company. Similarly to white chocolate and raspberries, you and your partner are the perfect blend. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness and ice cream!
Rocky Mountain Raspberry – You set your sights and expectations high in your relationships and refuse to settle for less (as it should be). You’re also perfectly fine on your own if people aren’t meeting your expectations. You’re a free and wild heart and looking for someone to treat you right and adventure along the way with you. Whether it’s one spoon or two, dig into this white chocolate ice cream with almond raspberry fudge chunks and raspberry swirls and keep being you!
Strawberry Sundae Cake – Alexa, play “Lover” by Taylor Swift. You’re an old soul and a hopeless romantic. It doesn’t matter how many heartbreaks you go through, you will get your fairytale love story and you know it. You probably eat this strawberry ice cream with vanilla flavored cake crumbles and whipped cream right out of the carton while watching The Notebook, and we absolutely love that for you.
Fireball – Was “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry in your Spotify Wrapped in 2021? Because it certainly was your mood. Listen, Fireball knows a thing or two about being hot and cold, and there’s no shame in that game. Cinnamon ice cream with hot cinnamonnette candies? Well, we pretty much invented the concept. You’ve got a fiery personality, and you’re not afraid to show it. Being with you is never boring, so you need a partner that matches your energy.
Confession: we can’t exactly help you find your soulmate. However, we can help you find your favorite ice cream (and sometimes that feels like the same thing). Use our Flavor Finder to find your perfect match.
