Combating brain freeze

Covert Ops | Sep 12, 2006 02:59 PM

Here's a plague on hounds who love sweet cold yummy stuff:

My new favorite drink concoction from Sonic is the Cranberry Slush. But maybe because I suck it down too fast, I get MONSTROUS brain freeze!

I remember reading somewhere that the freeze is caused when the cold hits your hard palate (aka the roof of your mouth), so rubbing it with your tongue to warm it should work. But -- it doesn't. Maybe it's really the soft palate? My tongue won't reach back that far!

Argh. You can tell I'm frustrated. Anyone else have tips/tactics to beat the dreaded freeze?
