What Your Ice Cream Truck Order Should Be, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Are you classic vanilla or sweet strawberry shortcake? Astrologers share their thoughts.
Nothing is more nostalgic than hearing the jingle of the ice cream truck on a hot summer day. It's the perfect way to get a sweet treat while also beating the heat. With so many options, though, it can be hard to narrow it down. But if you're into astrology, you may be in luck: Our professional astrologers have weighed in. Read on to find out what they say you should order from the ice cream truck, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries: Bomb Pop
As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is exciting and adventurous, so you know they need to order something with an in-your-face type of energy.
Their bold nature pairs flawlessly with an old-fashioned Bomb Pop, according to Stina Garbis, astrologer and owner of Psychic Stina. "Its strong and solid nature makes it the perfect popsicle for this sign's warrior type."
Plus, these firecrackers will love the patriotic color combination, which gives you not one but three flavors to enjoy.
"Simple and sophisticated is the way to a Taurean's heart at the ice cream truck window," says Lauren DeGolia, clarity consultant and astrologer at Fresh Start Registry.
They live for the classics but love to indulge. DeGolia mentions that a regular old ice pop will leave them unsatisfied, while other selections might be too fussy, which is why she says the Chipwich is the best choice.
The combination of chocolate chip cookies and ice cream is a "home run for Taurus taste buds," as well as a lovely nostalgic moment.
Gemini: Strawberry Shortcake
The sign of the twins is constantly curious and incredibly indecisive—whether it's about their busy social lives or what they order from the ice cream truck.
Luckily, the strawberry shortcake bar has a couple of different flavors and textures for these air signs to enjoy. "It's a little fruity and a little fun," says DeGolia—just like Gemini. And these extroverted, playful signs will love what a childhood throwback this is.
Cancer: Push Pop
These caretakers thrive on comfort and nostalgia, so they don't need something fancy when it comes to their ice cream. "Cancer enjoys the simplicity and retro feeling of a good ol' push pop," says Garbis.
With traditional flavors of grape, orange, or cherry, the push pop also reminds them of their childhood, as does having a cozy afternoon outside and hearing the jingle of the ice cream truck.
Leo: King Cone/Drumstick
When it comes to Leo, bigger is always better. These fire signs need something that goes hand in hand with their showy personality—and nothing beats a king cone.
"It might seem nuts, pardon the pun, but Leo is a 'go big or go home' purveyor of frozen treats," says DeGolia. And the king cone is bold and full of different flavors.
Virgo: Orange Creamsicle
Virgo will overanalyze their options while waiting in line. They'll want something that isn't too messy but will also cool them off and taste delicious.
DeGolia says the orange creamsicle is perfect for these perfectionists. "They love the clean architecture of the bar, the fun sentiments that flood through when their taste buds tap into their childhood, and the practical and fun nature of the treat."
Libra: Chocolate Eclair
Like Taurus, Libras are sophisticated and love luxury. And like Gemini, they're oh-so-indecisive. This is why they should order a chocolate eclair pop from the ice cream truck window.
It's vanilla ice cream with a chocolate center that's rolled in cake pieces, so not only is it deliciously rich, but it has multiple flavors.
Betty Andrews, life coach, astrologer, and psychic at Fresh Start Registry, says the flavors and shape of the treat resonate well with Libra's aesthetic sensibilities.
Scorpio: Neopolitan Ice Cream Sandwich
Scorpio is a mysterious, intense, and guarded water sign. But once they welcome you in, you have no choice but to like them for their loyalty and passion.
When it comes to this sign, Garbis says it's what's under the wrapper that counts, which is why she says Scorpio should order a Neapolitan ice cream sandwich. Peel off the foil, and you have a combination of three sentimental ice cream flavors that you can't help but love.
Sagittarius: Cookies & Creme Bar
Adventurous Sagittarius would probably like to order one of everything on the menu so they can experience all the fun flavors. However, Garbis believes they're Oreo-loving people at heart—which is why she recommends they get a cookies-and-cream bar.
"The ice cream surrounded by Oreo cookie crumbs is fun and delicious and a little bit messy just like this sign's personality," she says.
But just know the next time they're ordering, they're bound to get something totally different.
Capricorn: Vanilla Cone
No one is more classic than a Capricorn. These old-fashioned signs love anything traditional. No-fuss and no-nonsense is exactly what they're after.
Andrews says they should go with a simple waffle cone filled with soft-serve vanilla ice cream. This favorite treat will never get old, and if they're feeling a little bold that day, they can always add some rainbow sprinkles.

Aquarius: Rainbow Snow Cone
Aquarians are trendsetters. They feel the need to show off their uniqueness any chance they get. So you know their ice cream truck order is going to be a bit out there, too.
The rainbow snow cone is an obvious pick because it's non-conformist and doesn't really go with anything else, just like these air signs. "They crave those vibrant, ever-changing flavors that dance on your taste buds like a celebration of individuality," says Andrews.
Pisces: Reese's Dessert Bar
When it comes to ice cream, Pisces need something ultra. They're all about the feels and they know it. And what better way to release your emotions than enjoying a sugary treat?
That's why Andrews believes a Reese's peanut butter dessert bar is their ultimate comfort companion. "When those emotions hit, they turn to this creamy delight to wrap them in a warm, nutty embrace, and it's like a soothing balm for their sensitive hearts," she says.
