Brain Freeze, the mortal enemy of the mighty Ice Cream. Usually a bowl of ice cream isn't too dangerous, it's those tempting trips into the freezer to spoon some ice cream right out of the container that puts you at risk. Sure, the first few bites are fine, but beware, too many and your "brain" will get frozen....ok, actually your throat. Now don't panic, there is a cure! if you don't want to waste any of that tasty ice cream, just take some slow deep breaths to warm your throat back up. If the freeze is too bad, and you don't mind washing away any tasty goodness, have some room temperature water to bring your throat temp back up real quick, at which point you can go back to shoveling in the ice cream. With water, you don't have to worry about tainting your ice cream experience with uncomplimentary flavors.
