The door is locked, the freezer is stocked, you’ve told your friends that whilst you love them dearly, the sofa is currently the most important relationship in your life and your most urgent priorities are choosing a movie and digging into a tub of ice cream while the dog likely naps haphazardly across your legs.
Look, sometimes we only have enough mental capacity to focus on which part of the sofa to nestle into, and for other more laborious decisions we just want to be told what to do, like what type of movie to watch and what type of ice cream to eat while we watch it. Even better if this information is perfectly curated to suit our mood. We’ve got you covered; take this quiz to find out your perfect pairing!
Comedy + Half Baked.
The laughs, the tears, the punchline-inducing fetal position. When your mood is this good, something textured, light-hearted and whimsical is your only option. In other words, Half Baked.
Drama + Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
The plot thickens, the tension builds, the drama unfolds. Cookie Dough is the answer. Not only is it a constant joy for most ice cream-eating enthusiasts, those euphoric chunks of sweet cookie dough should balance all of the emotional turmoil happening within you. Well not all of it—I mean we can’t overpromise.
Sci-Fi + Karamel Sutra.
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no, it’s actually a soft and gooey caramel core surrounded by chocolate and caramel ice creams. Not to be confused with the gooey gelatinous alien life form engulfing everything in its path in the 1950’s sci-fi classic of your choice, The Blob. Because when there’s something strange on your TV screen, whaddya gonna eat? Karamel Sutra.
Horror + Chocolate Fudge Brownie.
In times of distress we should reach for something comforting. No we’re not talking about your 34-year old blankie you’ve been carrying on you since 1984 that now looks like a sad piece of lint from underneath the refrigerator. We’re talking about Chocolate Fudge Brownie (the ice cream version of a blankie.) A comforting classic is the necessary choice here—because was there ever a time chocolate didn’t help us temporarily suppress feelings of panic and hopelessness?
Indie + Non-Dairy.
Independent, different, unique, free-thinking. Yes, fine, we’re talking about you, ya cheeky compliment fisher. But we’re also talking about your choice of film. So while you’re appreciating the unscripted dialogue and non-linear plot lines, you really should be enjoying them with something else that plays by its own rules, Non-Dairy.
Fantasy + Triple Caramel Chunk.
Imagine the impossible, the improbable, the inconceivable. What does it look like? Perhaps it’s soft, gooey, caramelly and of Other-Earthly proportions. A triple dose of caramel! And if you can eat real-life fantasy ice cream while watching a real-life fantasy film, well, then we just don’t know how you can do any better than that.
