If it's on a stick, it's an ice block. Maybe I'm out of touch and Magnums now come in tubs too, but when I think of a Magnum, it's one of those blocks of ice cream coated in chocolate on a stick. That's an ice block to me because it's on a stick.

The stick has no meaning, my child. lol

Cold dairy producty thingies are ice creams.

Water based products are ice blocks/poles. "Freezers" are ice blocks/poles. Frozen cordial in a tube are ice blocks/poles

Not to make this more confusing, I thought it was Axver who reminded me of the name of icy watery things by calling them iceblocks. things with icecreams (on a stick) are called...icecreams loll.

Ice cream in a cone is an icecream.

I grew up with the stick having the meaning! You had your typical ice blocks - a block of flavoured ice on a stick. But then you had these fancy ice blocks that came along with chocolate coatings and ice cream, but they were still ice blocks! Ice cream came in a tub or cone. Like at my grandparents' shop, they would scoop the ice cream out onto a cone and give it to you, but if you wanted an ice block, you went to the freezer at the side of the shop and you'd find all the stuff on a stick.

So yeah, to make it clear, to me:

On a stick: ice block
In a tub or on a cone: ice cream

Didn't think ice cream would be so complex!

To you nutty Aussies, perhaps. Then again, every Kiwi knows that if he is in disagreement with an Australian, the Aussie's wrong.

I'm off to bed, and that actually inspired another question: what do you folks call the cover? To me, it's a bedspread (the term I grew up with in New Zealand), and that seems to be a universally understood term. However, I've been in Australia long enough that 'doona' has actually become a word I use often, probably more than bedspread, as much as I hate to admit that. I've heard Americans call it a comforter, which I think is simply bizarre as I don't think of a bedspread wrapping an arm around my shoulders and offering me a tissue when I'm upset. What's it called in England?

actually, on further pondering, im wondering if there is any truth in axvers claims.

i am thinking back to public swimming pool days. remeber toobs???? they were the SHIT! and you'd pay your 20 cents and swim then hound mum for another 20 cents to buy a bag of toobs or an iceblock?



what was i saying again?

doonas are the fat bulky things which have a cover on them which match your sheets (if you are anal like me lol) and a bedspread is a thinner, but very warm courded (as in courdory) cottonish thick sheet. very thick, but warm. good in autumn or spring.

Duvet in England, I think.

A bedspreads different to a doona. A bedspread is like a really thick fancy sheet that covers the bed.

A doona is a padded thingie that requires a cover. A quilt cover! Doonas are called quilts over here but not quilts like USA quilts - those are bedspreads. :cookiemonster:

When I said "over here", I meant here in the West.
