True or False? Licking ice cream is more satisfying than eating it with a spoon.

True or False? Licking ice cream is more satisfying than eating it with a spoon.

True, according to Kay McMath, a food technologist for New Zealand's Massey University. "Flavor in ice cream is released when the fat-which carries the flavor-is warmed to at least body temperature," says McMath. When you lick ice cream it coats the tongue and fully warms the frozen treat. A spoon, on the other hand, insulates the ice cream. And then there's the psychological aspect of savoring the treat more slowly: you just cannot lick ice cream as fast as you can spoon it.

What?

"you cannot lick.....as fast as you can spoon"

Sounds as if Ms McMath should call Dr. Ruth. LOL   

By the way, take soft chocolate chip cookies, heat them for no longer than a few seconds in the microwave, dip in vanilla ice cream.   Yum. No licking necessary.

True if you have the patience and control to do it like that.

I do know that soft serve ice cream tastes better with a white plastic spoon rather than a steel/silver spoon... well that is just my opinion.....
