I thought there was a dialectal vocabulary thread around but I couldn't find it. Anyway, what do you call this?

For me in Eastern Michigan it's a Twisty, and there's even a store here called Tracey's Twisties. But apparently, in Western Michigan they call it a Twister. Or so I am lead to believe from experience.

Disgusting fake ice cream that's half chocolate and half vanilla "flavour".

(ie, I don't have a name for it)

Why "fake"? That's what you get if you have vanilla in one box and chocolate in the other and you pull the middle handle (out of three) on the ice cream machine. We call it "blandaður ís" or mixed ice cream.

No special word for it, I've never even seen mestizo ice-cream like that before.

I don't mind smooth ice-cream like that, but that does look like a particularly vile and unappetising example.

finlay probably thought it is CG, plastic or some sort of candy.

In BP (Rio de Janeiro, anyway) this is called a casquinha mista, which literally means "mixed little crust". Any sort of pastry filled with ice cream is called casquinha here. Vanilla flavour is called "creme" and chocolate... well.

Ice ... cream?

Or frozen yogurt. It's hard to tell which type of processed food-like product that's supposed to be.

Never seen anything like that, but this is a cone (ice-cream cone really I suppose), or a ninety-nine, from it's (historic) price, particularly if it has a chocolate flake.

I don't have a name for it IMD. I pretty much never have any cause to refer to soft-serve ice cream.

The dish doesn't have a special name—just soft serve in a cone. I call the flavor swirl or twist.

I call it Chocolate-Vanilla ice cream. I try to avoid it, opting for plain vanilla instead. I have never heard anyone refer to at as a "Twisty" or the like.

I call it an "ice cream cone," or a "soft-serve ice cream cone" if I need to distinguish it from a "regular ice cream cone."

It might just about fall under 'ninety-nine'.

To me, it is a regular ice cream cone.

(Chocolate-vanilla) Swirl to be specific, or squirrel if I'm feeling silly at the time.

I don't call that anything less vague than ice cream, except for maybe soft-serve.

That is a "*vomit* machine ice cream which probably tastes metallic and slimy and why the fuck is there so much ice cream in such a tiny cone surely it's just going to fall off or melt before you get halfway".

Twist, I think. Oklahoma doesn't have a lot of Dairy Queen's or soft-serve ice-cream place. Braum's is good, but sometimes you want a soft ice cream cone. The nearest Dairy Queen is in Chickasha, which isn't too far away from me (30 min) but there’s not much of a reason to go to Chickasha.

I'm not sure what to call it in English. Soft cone? Anyway, in Swedish it's mjukglass (soft ice cream) and in Finnish pehmis. Or were you referring to the mix of two flavours?

EDIT: Funny that so many think lowly of that type of ice cream. Over here it's considered a rare treat; the best kind of ice cream.

In Iceland, icecream "ís" is soft-serve like that by default. You can only get the gelato-kind you take up with scoops at two or three places.

I think he might rather mean the disgusting ice cream that comes in liter boxes from the supermarket? Especially disgusting if it's cheap-ass "White Brands" like Ja and stuff :?

In Dutch it works the same as German: softijs.
