How do you eat ice cream?

Non Cognomina | Jul 16, 200604:26 AM     11

I've had a few conversations recently about how people eat ice cream.

My sister likes to turn her spoon upside down in her mouth so the ice cream lands right on her tongue, rather than the cold spoon which "freezes" her taste buds and impedes her ablility to taste the ice cream.

Her best friend likes to eat ice cream with a plastic spoon, and keeps them in her cupboard at home specifically for that purpose.

I didn't notice it until they pointed it out to me, but I eat ice cream "sideways" by turning the spoon on the side, and pulling it into my mouth with my upper lip. It looks kinda funny, but it's how I've always done it, I guess. I just never noticed. Ususally, I prefer ice cream on a cake cone when I get it at a shop, so no spoon needed!

Anyone else have a special way or preference for eating ice cream?
