Heading to a reunion or need a fun family activity? An ice cream taste test is a perfect thing to do with a big or small group. Here’s how we did ours, plus a free printable!

This ice cream taste test is a fun summer activity

We’re heading to our family reunion next week, and when you’re staying in a big house with a bunch of people, it’s fun to have a few low key activities planned that are easy for a large group.

An ice cream taste test is one of our faves! We did this last summer in Bear Lake with my family and it was so fun. It also doubles as dessert, so it’s perfect for an evening activity.

Here’s how we did our ice cream taste test, plus a free printable chart that you can use for your reunion this summer. Or you could just do this at home for a fun weekend activity with your family or your kids and their friends!

Check out the cute printable score card I made

I created this ice cream printable scoring sheet, and everyone got a copy.

How to choose the ice cream flavors

You can get ice cream anywhere you want, but for our family taste test we did this summer, I ordered a bunch of Great Value brand ice cream flavors from Walmart. You could do all different flavors of the same brand (that’s what we did here), or the same flavor with different brands (we did that two years ago and tried five brands of strawberry ice cream)!

But whatever you choose, using Walmart to order them makes it so easy!

Here are the flavors we tried (all Great Value brand)

All the details about Walmart+

I’ve been using Walmart+ for over six months and it’s been life changing for me. It makes grocery shopping so much easier, but also makes these kind of fun activities even easier for me to pull off as a busy working mom.

You can sign up RIGHT HERE for a W+ account and you’ll get free delivery from your local store on orders over $35 (restrictions apply), and free, super fast shipping on Walmart.com with no order minimum (excludes Marketplace and Freight items).

It makes it easy to order ice cream to be delivered to your door, and order ice cream scoopers, plastic cups and spoons, and extra printer paper from Walmart.com shipped to your house so you can put together this ice cream taste test. Literally Walmart has everything so throw a whole party while you’re at it!

How we did the ice cream taste test

Everyone gets a plastic cup and a spoon.

Choose the first ice cream and have everyone write down the flavor on their paper. Serve everyone a small scoop of this flavor.

After tasting it, everyone writes down their ratings of that flavor (we rated 1-5 for each of the three categories) and then we moved to the next flavor.

After everyone had tasted every flavor, they decided on their “Best” in each of the four categories. We tallied up the votes, and a winning flavor (or flavors) was announced. It was so fun, and super simple!

When the tasting was over, there was plenty of ice cream left for people to try their favorite flavors again!

Are you going to try it this summer?!

Try it this summer with your family or your friends! You could also do variations on this and try a root beer taste test, or a chocolate taste test, or anything — just get creative!

    Thanks for sharing! What the training plan will be depends on various factors and, first of all, on the goal. The main thing to remember is that the program should be varied. Thanks to such programs and the use of steroids – http://www.samsonsteroidsuk.com, I acquired the forms that I have long dreamed of.
