Ice cream on a cold day

A post today on New York Magazine's site is incredulous that anyone would buy cold food on a cold day:

But on the coldest January 7 in New York City since 1896, what kind of maniac would buy fro-yo or ice cream?

This logic has never made much sense to me.  I decide what eat mostly because of how good it tastes, not to regulate my body temperature.  If I'm craving chili, I don't really care if it's 95 degrees.  Whether it's hot or cold might make a minor adjustment to what I want, but overwhelmingly it's about what I'm hungry for.  I realize I'm in the minority here, but is it really too hard to understand that ice cream is always awesome?
