As the leader of the zodiac, you are used to charting your own path and you like to take the roads less travelled. Nothing stands in the way of you and your accomplishments. Although life can throw many curve balls at you, you always pick yourself up and move on.
“Known as the warrior of the zodiac, Aries won’t let anything come in their way of winning,” says Stardust. “The path to success may be rocky, but no ‘rocky road’ will stop the Ram from dominating the world.” Adding to the symbolism of this flavor is a delicious mix of chocolate ice cream, marshmallows and nuts.
You are known for your love of decadence and comfort, taking your time to savor life’s little moments. Your main goal is to have a good time and embrace leisure. So while other signs may enjoy an unusual or outward flavor, you’d rather stick to the tried-and-true classics.
“As a sweet tooth, Taurus enjoys a symphony of mixed goodies,” says Stardust. “And their palate is refined like no other sign. The mix of vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookie dough will send their taste buds into ecstasy.”

Versatility is the name of the game with you, Gemini. You like to have fun, you are outgoing and a bit unpredictable. As a social butterfly of the zodiac, you’re always looking to party and embrace the unusual. Therefore, you will only be satisfied with one-of-a-kind ice cream flavor.
“Every day is a celebration in the life of a charming Gemini, that’s why [birthday cake] is the ultimate ice cream flavor for that party animal,” says Stardust. “Make sure you bring an extra for their twin too!”
You’re sweet and sentimental, Cancer, and that energy translates to your favorite foods. You also love convenience, and as such, a fruit-flavored ice cream reminiscent of your favorite childhood popsicle is the best of both worlds.
“As a sign of summer, the Crab loves desserts that have a fruity twist, which is why mango is their frozen treat of choice – it keeps them cool in the heat and tickles their sweet tooth. “, explains Stardust.

You’re the life of the party and a scene stealer, Leo. There is nothing subtle about you and your dynamic personality. Wherever you go, you make a statement and let your energy shine.
“Known as the sign that brings the most flair and drama to the table, Leo will happily whip up a sundae with all the paraphernalia,” Stardust says. “Only Leo can transform a basic flavor into a delicious sweet dream.” A sundae with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry on top is just as fun and outgoing as you are.
Virgo, you thrive on structure and predictability. As an earth sign who likes to keep things orderly and routine, you don’t tend to stray from your usual favorites very often. However, as a sign ruled by inquisitive and quick-witted Mercury, you have a surprising side that likes to pop out every once in a while.
“Classic, but full of spice are words that describe Virgo’s understated taste,” says Stardust. “Just like the earth zodiac sign, cookies and cream have the same [reputation] among the flavors of ice cream, which is why it will fill the empty cone of the Virgin with delight.”

As any Libra knows, making decisions is hard, especially when there are so many great options. Like the sign symbolized by the scales, you are always looking to have your cake and eat it too. So why limit yourself to one flavor of ice cream, when you can have three?
“Of course Libra will be fascinated by the proportional [nature] of Neapolitan ice cream, tipping the scales of the balanced air sign for a second serving of all three flavors,” says Stardust. This delicious combo lets you switch things up as your mood changes and enjoy the best of the classics.
Scorpios are very comfortable expressing their assertiveness and passion – you like what you like and you don’t apologize for it. You need an ice cream that is both intense and refreshing, reflecting your personality.
“Mint chocolate chips awaken the senses and help refresh our palates,” says Stardust. “Transcendent Scorpio enjoys flavor because it rekindles their subconscious desires with every lick.”

You love adventure and trying new things. You are funny, passionate about life and a free spirit who finds nothing too outrageous. When it comes to an ice cream flavor that perfectly captures your personality, it’s Moose Tracks.
“Sagittarius is known to be a world traveler, absorbed in different views and philosophies,” Stardust notes. “Moose Tracks has many different blended ingredients that will add some pizzazz to their thirst for different ideas.” Vanilla ice cream mixed with peanut butter cups and fudge is definitely a bold combo.
Just because you’re known for being responsible and focused doesn’t mean you don’t like to treat yourself once in a while. Your hard-working attitude goes beyond the boardroom, and you have a sensitive side that likes to take things slow. The perfect summer treat for you won’t be complicated or difficult, but rather “simple…and precise,” says Stardust. A strawberry ice cream cone does the trick perfectly and will tickle your taste buds with a “zest of sweet pep”.

You like to stand out from the crowd, Aquarius. Unlike other signs who prefer to conform, you’re not afraid to be a little quirky. In fact, your unique personality is what people love about you. As such, you need an ice cream flavor that suits your distinctive style.
“The fashion-forward air sign will be drawn to the pistachio’s unique color and enjoy its warm aroma and flavor,” says Stardust. “Aquarius will fall for the eclectic mix of this nutty treat.”
Mysterious and dreamy, Pisces is one of the most difficult signs to understand. You tend to love people, places, and things that remind you of your favorite moments in life. However, you also tend to get lost in your feelings and can live with your head in the clouds.
The nostalgic nature of Pisces “will be drawn to salted caramel because the salty element will remind them of the seas and oceans that fish swim in, suiting their taste for the mystical air of the beach,” says Stardust. Also, it’s a bit complex, just like you.
