Summer is now in full swing, and you know what that means? Ice cream by the pints, quarts, and gallons -- wonderfully creamy cold ice cream.

Ice cream is by far my favorite food all year long, yet when the heat of summer hits everyone is looking for an escape, and the only sure fire way to keep cool is ice cream. You can swim, blow fans, and drink ice water all you want but nothing beats a bowl or cone of sweet tasting ice cream. With this in mind, I think it's important that you not only eat ice cream but have an informed awareness of the best flavors ice cream.

Next time you go looking for a sweet summer treat, here it is the 10 best flavors of ice cream, ranked:

10. Cotton Candy

This flavor did not make the list because it is good. In fact it is most certainly not good, it is basically toothpaste flavored ice cream. This is why it is ranked last, always.

9. Strawberry

Strawberry ice cream makes one feel like they've made a healthy choice because it has fruit in it, when in fact it is still full of sugar and fat. Regardless, it is delicious.

8. Rocky Road

Chocolate and marshmallows and almonds, oh my! There is so much going on here and it is delicious. If you like chunks of toppings in your ice cream, this one is for you!

7. Chocolate

Sweet and simple, chocolate ice cream is never a bad idea. It's what your 6-year-old self would have wanted.

6. Butter Pecan

Butter pecan is the often overlooked flavor, which is unfortunate because it is absolutely amazing. All you people keep missing out on its awesomeness. Rock on, butter pecan!

5. Cookie Dough

"Hey, what would happen if we mixed cookies with ice cream?" And so cookie dough ice cream was born, which meant that combining two of the best desserts in existence was definitely a good idea.

4. Moose Tracks

My heart goes out to Moose Tracks, sometimes referred to as Bunny Tracks, and it is to die for. There is chocolate swirls and caramel filled nuggets, I think I'm in love.

3. Vanilla

The classic because like chocolate, vanilla never goes out of style. You can add whatever toppings you like, and it's always a crowd pleaser.

2. Cookies and Cream

The blend of cookies and ice cream has done it again! Cookies and cream is fantastic and satisfies the Oreo lover in me.

1. Mint Chocolate Chip

Hands down, mint chocolate chip is the best ice cream flavor around. Not only is it a pretty color, it is also refreshing and cool. I highly recommend mint chip.

Everyone has their own opinions on ice cream, but whatever you choose, be sure to enjoy every bite! Happy summer ice cream lovers!

Leo's are known as the lion sign. A sign that represents power, pride, and leadership. A person with power deserves a drink that is just as in charge as they are. The Avalanche is that drink. A dirty chai with a white chocolate twist is a drink that definitely packs a punch.

The Beesting is a sweet mixture of honey, coconut, and cinnamon that is perfect for the mild mannered Virgo.

Coconut and chocolate. To some, this may sound like the best combination. To others, this may be a little too adventurous. For Scorpios, the fearless sign, this drink is right up their alley. Scorpios strive for individuality and one of the most original drinks GCBC has is the Coco-Mocha. A tasty, complex drink that will satisfy the cravings of a Scorpio but is still original an more unique than the average espresso drink.

9. Sagittarius - Any of GCBC's smoothies

Sagittarius's are described as honest, optimistic, enthusiastic and encouraging. They are the people that when you are with them, it is like a breath of fresh air. Refreshing and exactly what you needed in the moment. That is why a GCBC smoothie is exactly the drink for you. They aren't the usual pick at a coffee place, but you know exactly what you are getting with a smoothie. Sweet, healthy choices that will make you feel better, like a Sagittarius.

10. Capricorn - Cold Brew on tap

Cold brew is one of those drinks that you have to be either a coffee connoisseur, overwhelmed by all the work you have to do, or like a very successful businessperson to enjoy. Capricorns are, most of the time, one, if not all, of those things. Known to be the hard workers and the planners, Capricorns need the high amount of caffeine to continue to get their to-do list done!

11. Aquarius - Hot cocoa

Known to be shy personalities or eccentric friends, Aquarius's can described as cute and fair-minded. They are the feel good people placed in your life. And... the feel good drink that you need in your life? Hot cocoa. Enough said.

12.  Pisces - Stampede

https://www.instagram.com/p/BeEm7NlBkwi/

A daydreamer? Happy? Vibrant? That would be a Pisces. These artistic signs are known for their bright personalities and emotional connections. At GCBC, nothing gets brighter than a Stampede. While any flavor will do, the Blueberry flavor or Thunder's signature drink "Blue Thunder" can be seen all the way across campus! For a colorful Pisces, a Stampede should always be their go-to drink!

While your star sign can be fun and maybe even a little freaky, realistically, you can pick any GCBC drink that fits your palette. Hopefully, you did find a new suggestion or a new obsession and maybe, it fits your personality!
