The Sims 4 Cool Kitchen
Ice Cream Features, Objects, Hair, and Clothing
By Mr. and Mrs. Flynn Arrowstarr
The Sims 4: Cool Kitchen Stuff is the fourth Stuff Pack for The Sims 4. The pack contains a number of new objects to help style your perfect kitchen and dining areas. Add to that the Sweet Tooth Ice Cream Machine for crafting a variety of treats which can both positively and negatively affect your Sims' moods and you have a great way to add new fun to your Sims 4 game.
This guide covers everything you need to know about the gameplay in Cool Kitchen, focusing primarily on the ice cream maker and how it can benefit your Sims.
Ice Cream Machine
The Sweet Tooth Ice Cream Machine makes a variety of sweet treats for your Sims to enjoy. Each batch is eight servings - both bowls and cones count as a serving each. Quality is based on the Sim's Cooking skill level and the batches last ten hours before spoiling. The treats grant the following moodlets (based on Excellent quality meal):
|1 - 3||Pretty Tasty Happy +1||4 hours|
|4 - 6||Delicious Dish Happy +1||4 hours|
|7 - 8||Fantastic Food Happy +2||5 hours|
|9 - 10||Epic Meal Happy +3||6 hours|
Ice Cream Recipes by Cooking Level
Ice Creams with special effects are Bolded in the table and their descriptions found below.
|1||Vanilla Ice Cream||$5|
|1||Chocolate Ice Cream||$6|
|3||Weight of the World||$21|
|3||Mint Chocolate Chip||$15|
|4||Cherry Ice Cream||$18|
|4||Taste of Diet||$27|
|8||Fruit of the Forest||$33|
|10||Ricotta Stregala Gelato||$37|
|10||Neapolitan Ice Cream||$40|
Some flavors have other effects on your Sim in addition to the meal moodlet. Here's a list of the special ice cream effects:
- Pure Perfection - Pure Perfection moodlet (Happy +1) for four hours.
- Weight of the World - Sugary Goodness moodlet (Happy +1) for four hours. Can make your Sim put on weight.
- Taste of Diet - Taste of Diet moodlet (Happy +2) for four hours. Can reduce the Sim's body fat by eating it multiple times.
- Twin Roses - Taste of Roses moodlet (Flirty +1) for four hours.
- Haunted Mint - Hauntingly X moodlet which has a couple different effects, and may result in the Sim being visited by a Ghost:
- Hauntingly Saddened - Sad +1 for four hours (25%).
- Hauntingly Inspired - Inspired +1 for four hours (75%).
- Mental Upheaval - Mind Askew moodlet (random moodlet +1) for one hour.
- Plant Matter - Green Life moodlet (Happy +1) for four hours. Also turns Sim's skin green for the length of the moodlet.
- Dragon's Breath - Dragon's Wrath moodlet (Uncomfortable +1) for four hours, may also make them Confident. Has a chance of setting the Sim on fire.
- Chilling Mocha - Chance for a couple of effects, and your Sim may freeze others using a special interaction:
- Chilled to the Bone moodlet (Uncomfortable +1) for four hours and turns the Sim's skin blue. The affected Sim will also shiver occasionally.
- Ice Treat moodlet (Happy +1) for four hours. No skin color change or shivering animation.
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):
|Child orChildish||Sprinkles||Whipped Cream|
|Art Lover||Orange Slices||Raspberry Sauce|
|Bro||Peppermint Stick||Chocolate Sauce|
|Commitment Issues||Peppermint Stick||Nuts|
|Evil||Cinnamon Stick||Raspberry Sauce|
|Genius||Orange Slice||Coconut Shavings|
|Goofball||Banana Slices||Whipped Cream|
|Hot Headed||Peppermint Stick||Whipped Cream|
|Loves the Outdoors||Flower||Coconut Shavings|
|Music Lover||Banana||Chocolate Sauce|
|Self Assured||Cinnamon Stick||Coconut Shavings|

I don’t know if I got deleted but I am gonna say it again what about the bookworm triat flavour
As far as I know the Bookworm Trait isn't mentioned in the tuning files. As any trait on a sim can trigger the favorite ice cream toppings/garnishes and sims can have up to three traits it isn't really an issue.
