National Ice Cream Day falls smack dab in the middle of Cancer’s birthday season, so we feel it only appropriate to select your cream accordingly. Birthday Cake Ice Cream just makes sense for these caring Cancers. If you’re feeling extra festive, let those rainbow sprinkles rain down on that cone like confetti. Hey, this is a double-celebration after all!

LEO: Honey

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.

VIRGO: Lavender

Lavender Ice Cream. Delicate floral undertones play well with sugary frozen cream to create a virtually perfect summer treat. And remember, Virgos have a hard time settling for anything less than perfect. Luckily, with this flavor combination, they won’t have to.

LIBRA: Green Tea

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.


(October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are a passionate and dynamic crew, deserving of a flavor as fierce as they are. Well, what do you know? Rocky Road is just that. It’s a classic for a reason and a true chocolate lover’s dream. Jam packed with chunks of marshmallows, almonds and chocolate chips, this scoop delivers a rich flavor that makes it truly unforgettable. Kind of like you, Scorpio.

SAGITTARIUS: Chocolate Bacon

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.


(December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are born into the world during the height of holiday festivities. These guys epitomize what it means to be responsible, they are what you’d call true “good eggs.” We say let your hair down and really indulge in a mid-year holiday cheer with some Eggnog Ice Cream! The spicy hints of cinnamon and nutmeg paired with a creamy vanilla undertones will slow these hard-workers down just long enough to savor a waffle cone, or two.

AQUARIUS: Black Cherry

Ah, the beloved, eccentric Aquarians. This sign needs a flavor that is as bold and memorable as they are. Our scoop selection? Black Cherry Ice Cream. Tart notes of cherry and lemon blend seamlessly with sweet vanilla cream, resulting in rich purple color and truly delectable flavor. We feel confident that Aquarius everywhere will be licking their bowls clean with this one.

Pisces are an imaginative, adaptable and love nothing more than helping others. We say it’s time to help yourself, Pisces! Take the time to treat yourself to some serious delicious (not to mention completely refreshing) Mint Ice Cream! The cool mint flavors makes this frozen treat feel twice as icy to eat, thus it's the perfect scoop for hot summer days. We love a generous swirl of chocolate syrup on top, but we say let your innate imagination run wild with the toppings on this one, Pisces! You deserve it.

ARIES: Cinnamon

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 marriage of cinnamon and vanilla make for delicious snickerdoodles cookies but work even better in ice cream form! We have a feeling that these fire signs will appreciate this spicy and sweet flavor dripping down their waffle cones.

Taurus are the most traditional batch of the zodiac. They have no problems sticking to a basic vanilla bean or chocolate swirl, but come on guys, live a little! We’re here to up your ice cream game this summer with our pick: Peanut Butter Cookie 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. You’re welcome, Taurus.

Coconut Ice Cream

Gemini are symbolized by trend-loving twins and are notorious for being indecisive when it comes to life's big decisions. That said, is there really any bigger decision than selecting the perfect ice cream flavor? You see the dilemma here. Don’t stress Gems, we’ve paired you with the flavor of the season (literally): Coconut Ice Cream. The combination tropical coconut combined with creamy vanilla is the perfect flavor to satisfy even the pickest Gemini’s palate. This summery, sweet selection is one major decision that the twin crew will not be second guessing.
