Baskin-Robbins Reveals What Your Favorite Ice Cream Flavor Says About You

CANTON, Mass., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, is keeping its celebration of National Ice Cream Month going by revealing what a person's favorite ice cream flavor says about them, and by offering its fans the chance to win a year's worth of Baskin-Robbins ice cream through its National Ice Cream Day Twitter sweepstakes.

Baskin-Robbins recently partnered with Dr. Alan Hirsch, a nationally recognized smell and taste expert and founder of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, to identify what some of the most popular ice cream flavors suggest about someone's personality. The findings uncovered some interesting insights into ice cream fans' unique characteristics based on their favorite Baskin-Robbins ice cream flavor.

"We uncovered quite a few surprising findings when investigating what a person's favorite ice cream flavor says about their personality," said Dr. Hirsch. "For instance, we found that people who prefer Rainbow Sherbet are more pessimistic than you would think, in spite of the flavor's bright taste profile, and that those who prefer Rocky Road are actually very good listeners."

Here are some of the surprising results from the study:

  • If your favorite flavor is Vanilla, you're more likely to be impulsive, easily suggestible and an idealist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate, you're more likely to be dramatic, lively, charming, flirtatious, seductive and gullible.
  • If your favorite flavor is, Very Berry Strawberry , you're more likely to be a tolerant, devoted and an introvert.
  • If your favorite flavor is Mint Chocolate Chip, you're more likely to be argumentative, frugal and cautious.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, you're more likely to be ambitious, competitive and a visionary.
  • If your favorite flavor is Pralines 'n Cream, you're more likely to be loving, supportive and prefer to avoid the spotlight.
  • If your favorite flavor is Jamoca (i.e. coffee), you're more likely to be scrupulous, conscientious and a moral perfectionist.
  • If your favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip, you're more likely to be generous, competent and a go getter.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rainbow Sherbet, you're more likely to be analytic, decisive and a pessimistic.
  • If your favorite flavor is Rocky Road, you're more likely to be aggressive, engaging and a good listener.

To celebrate National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 21, Baskin-Robbins is launching a Twitter sweepstakes to give ice cream lovers a chance to win one of ten $31 Baskin-Robbins gift cards. In addition, one grand prize winner will receive $260 in Baskin-Robbins gift cards, enough for them to enjoy their favorite ice cream flavors for an entire year. On July 21 from 9:00am-5:00pm EDT/ 6:00am-2:00pm PDT, followers of @BaskinRobbins who Tweet the ice cream flavor they think goes best in a waffle cone using the special hashtag #BRflavors will be entered for the chance to win. For official rules and additional details about the sweepstakes, visit www.BaskinRobbins.com or follow @BaskinRobbins on Twitter.

"National Ice Cream Month is the perfect time to enjoy your favorite ice cream flavor, and this year we wanted our guests to have fun by learning what their favorite flavor says about them," said Dan Wheeler, Vice President of U.S. Brand and Field Marketing for Baskin-Robbins. "We also can't wait to give one lucky Baskin-Robbins fan the chance to win free ice cream for a year through our National Ice Cream Twitter Sweepstakes this Sunday."
