The next time you order an American ice cream, get ready to feel like a busy bee, for a new survey has revealed that these chilled sweet treats can trigger emotions linked to its place of origin
In fact, the emotions generated vary from one kind of ice cream to another, according to a study of 10,000 adults by Kelly's of Cornwall Ice Cream. The study was followed by analysis from food psychologist Greg Tucker, reports the Scotsman.
Eating ice cream from Scotland with its sweet, milky taste conjures up feelings of indulgence. Cornish ice cream may inspire visions of beaches and seaside towns, while Italian ice cream with its swirls creates images of "bright and interesting" Naples.
American-style ice cream, which contains chunks or pieces, results in feeling "frenetic and busy".
