Hey, this is a double-celebration after all!

We turned to the stars but they redirected us to the beehives for this one! Leos have an indisputably golden heart that is deserving of a serious serving of golden and gooey frozen goodness. The verdict: Honey Ice Cream. Sticky honey swirled into vanilla-bean cream is nothing short of a dairy dream that our confident Leos will adore.

Libra, the renowned balance-seekers of the zodiac. To help find your inner-dessert-zen, might we suggest a large helping of green tea ice cream? We kind of feel like the countless health benefits of green tea balances out any of the sugary indulgence that may come from regular, old vanilla.

Sagittarius hosts some of the most adventurous spirits in the zodiac. We had to color outside the lines with this one. Our pick for you? We think that Chocolate Bacon Ice Cream should be these thrill-seekers’ go-to scoop. Because, as out-of-the-box as bacon might sound for dessert, have you ever gone on an adventure involving bacon or chocolate that you didn’t enjoy? Yeah. We haven’t either.

Aries are the independent and enthusiastic bunch of the zodiac. We feel they need a flavor that stands out just as much as they do! Enter: Cinnamon Ice Cream.

The timeless flavor of peanut butter cookies mixed with classic vanilla yields a scoop that is two times as traditional (and twice as yummy) as a vanilla cone, any day of the week.
