Eating ice cream from Scotland with its sweet, milky taste conjures up feelings of indulgence.

Cornish ice cream may inspire visions of beaches and seaside towns, while Italian ice cream with its swirls creates images of "bright and interesting" Naples.

American-style ice cream, which contains chunks or pieces, results in feeling "frenetic and busy".
