Ever found yourself spoon deep in a pint of ice cream wondering why it is your favorite frozen dairy concoction makes you feel better? Well, it probably isn’t all in your head.

If that explanation doesn’t satisfy you, then maybe it’s just good old-fashioned nostalgia that is to blame for why we reach for the greasy bag of chips or French fries when life gets us down.
