Best way to eat ice cream?

Do you have to have a waffle cone or will a paper cup do? Or would you rather have a bowl at home? Are you fond of various ice cream toppings or do you prefer your ice cream "plain"? Do you match toppings to ice cream flavours, or do you have favourite toppings no matter what the ice cream is? In short, what's your favourite way to eat ice cream?

If I eat ice cream outside, I'll definitely go for a waffle cone. But I'm more of a "bowl at home" person - give me a bowl of plain pistachio ice cream any day, no toppings needed! I seldom take toppings, but I'd choose butterscotch or caramel sauce with vanilla or mocha ice cream, and sprinkle it with some walnuts or almonds for good measure.
