Cold, refreshing and juicy: iced vocabulary entries for a hot summer

The name “ice cream” comes from the expression “iced cream” (maybe I should remind you that the English word “cream” is a false friend, as its meaning is not “crema” but “panna”).

There are many types of ice creams, all of them in different flavours…

The most common ice cream is served in scoops of different flavours on a waffle cone, but you might also prefer an ice lolly (which is frozen fruit juice on a stick), an Eskimo pie, which is ice cream covered with chocolate on a stick or wafers or cookies, or a sundae (which is ice cream served in a glass usually with wafers, nuts and chocolate or strawberry topping).
