Garnish and Toppings Effects
Sims get an additional moodlet if their favorite topping AND garnish are used on the ice cream. Any of their traits can be a 'favorite' so if you have two Sims with a common trait they could both get it if you choose the common trait. The correct favorite is based purely on each Sim's traits. The lone exception is children, who all like the same thing (listed first):
