Aries: Rocky Road

As the leader of the zodiac, you're used to blazing your own trail and taking the road less traveled.

"Known as the warrior of the zodiac, Aries won't let anything come in their way of winning," explains Stardust. "The path to success may be full of obstacles, but no 'rocky road' will get in the Ram's way of world domination."

In addition to this flavor's symbolism, it's a delicious blend of chocolate ice cream, marshmallows, and nuts that this fiery sign will love.

Taurus: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

You're known for your love of decadence and comfort, taking your time to savor life's little moments. Your main focus is having a good time and embracing leisure.

But as the foodie of the zodiac, you're not one to leave your culinary decisions—especially anything sugary!—to chance.

"As a lover of sweets, Taurus enjoys a symphony of blended delicacies," says Stardust. "And their palate is refined like no other sign. The blend 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're fun-loving, extroverted, and a bit on the unpredictable side. As the social butterfly of the zodiac, you're always looking to live it up and embrace the unusual.

Therefore, you'll only be satisfied with a one-of-a-kind ice cream flavor.

"Every day is a celebration in the life of a lovely Gemini, which is why [birthday cake] is the ultimate ice cream flavor for this party animal," explains Stardust.

Cancer: Lavender-Vanilla

Summer is your season, Cancer, and what better way to celebrate than with a delicious yet elevated ice cream cone?

You're sweet and sentimental, and that energy translates to your favorite foods, so we think you'll love the botanical blend of lavender-vanilla ice cream.

"The Crab enjoys deserts that have a sweet and refreshing flavor, which is why you can't go wrong with lavender vanilla—it allows them to press pause on life and indulge their sweet tooth," says Stardust.

You're the life of the party and a scene-stealer, Leo. There's nothing subtle about you. Everywhere you go, you're making a statement and letting your energy shine through.

"Known as the sign who brings the most flair and drama to the table, Leo will be delighted to spoon out a sundae with all the accouterments," says Stardust.

A sundae with vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry on top is just as fun and outgoing as you.

Virgo: Green Tea

Virgos thrive off structure and predictability. You're organized and like things a certain way.

However, as the sign ruled by curious and quick-thinking Mercury, you do like to step outside your comfort zone now and then—and we think you'll want to make an exception for this ice cream flavor.

"Green tea ice cream is a frosty twist on one of the most versatile flavors out there," says Stardust. "Much like the earthy zodiac sign, green tea ice cream strikes just the right balance between classic and charming."

As any Libra knows, making decisions is tough—especially when there are so many good options.

As the sign symbolized by the scales, you're always looking to have your cake and eat it, too. So why limit yourself to one ice cream flavor, when you can have three?

"Of course Libra will be entranced by the proportional [nature] of Neapolitan ice cream, making the balanced air sign tilt their scales for a second helping of all three flavors," Stardust says.

Scorpio: Mint Chocolate Chip

Scorpios are very comfortable expressing their assertiveness and passion—you like what you like, and you're not making any apologies about it.

You need an ice cream that is both intense and refreshing, just like your personality.

"Mint chocolate chip awakens the senses and helps freshen up our palates," says Stardust. "Transcendent Scorpio enjoys the flavor because it revives their subconscious desires with every lick."

You're a lover of adventure, Sagittarius. You're funny, enthusiastic about life, and a free spirit who finds nothing too outrageous.

"Sagittarius is known to be a world traveler, consumed with different views and philosophies," Stardust notes. "Moose Tracks has many different blended ingredients that will add pep to their lust for different insights."

Vanilla ice cream mixed with peanut butter cups and fudge is certainly a bold combo—but so are you!

Capricorn: Strawberry

Just because you're known for being responsible and focused, doesn't mean you don't enjoy treating yourself now and again, Capricorn.

Your work-hard-play-hard attitude goes beyond the boardroom, and you have a sensitive side that enjoys taking things slow.

The perfect summer treat for you won't be complicated or fussy, but rather, "simple… and to the point," Stardust says. A cone with strawberry ice cream fits the bill and will awaken your taste buds with a "sweet peppy zest."

Aquarius: Pistachio

You love standing out from the crowd, Aquarius. Unlike other signs that prefer to conform, you're not afraid to be a little weird.

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 avant-garde air sign will be drawn to the unique color of pistachio—and will enjoy its warm aroma and flavor," says Stardust.

Pisces: Salted Caramel

Mysterious and dreamy, Pisces is one of the harder signs to understand. You tend to embrace 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.

Pisces' nostalgic nature "will be drawn to salted caramel because the salty element will remind them of the seas and oceans the fish swim in, suiting their taste for mystical beachy air," says Stardust. Plus, it's a bit complex, just like you.
