Re: Re: Methods to stop ice cream headache

i find that when ice cream comes into contact with the roof of the
mouth and the back of the throat a temporary brain freze results that, if
endured, will end in a few seconds. However, I also find that anything
you ingest warmer than the ice cream quickly reverses the problem.
