The company calls it 'twist' or something but everyone else calls it frozen yogurt.

What is all this hate for soft-serve? Soft-serve is the best. I think I call the chocolate-vanilla combo a "twist."

Chocolate-vanilla ice cream for me is called a "swirl", but I'm not sure if that's official or used by anyone else.

No, just plain, unmixed ice. You'd need to manually mix them. And I don't find the posting this was supposed to be a reply to anymore :( I didn't intend it to be a reply to the OP. More like a propos.

As for mixed-sorts Eis(krem), I can't think of a special term to call that in German either. To me, Softeis is that kind of super-soft ice cream that typically comes from vending machines, but not specific to any sort or mix.

I'ma hijack this topic since I just read a . This strikes me as a classic example of one of those things that everyone has a name for but for which there is no widespread common term because it's something people only ever talk about in very colloquial contexts. Another example (for English at least) is "the crusty bits in your eyes when you wake up".

For the first, I have "end piece". I can't think of any other term in English except perhaps "crust", but that's ambiguous because it can also mean the outer edge of an ordinary slice.

For the second, "sand". "Sleep" I recognise from literary contexts. And the last time I saw a discussion of this term, I was surprised how many people came up with "eye boogers", which I had only ever come across before in a comic strip from the 80s.

I call it the "end piece" or "end slice" or occasionally "that poor piece which no one is going to eat."

The other I can't think of a name for, but I'd likely refer to them incorrectly as "dried tears" (as in the tears after you yawn not the tears after you cry (not there's any difference biologically, though in meaning there is)).

The word for the rest of an apple is also One of Those Words in German, AFAIK. For the end piece of bread I'm familiar with Knust, Kanten, Knöppchen.

In Catalan, el de la crosta "the one with the crust" or el del final "the one at the end", but more commonly aquest "this one".

I've always just called it a "twist".

Edit:

And the end of a loaf of bread is either called "the end" or, more properly, "the heel" here.

The crusty bits in your eyes is properly called 'sleep', or, colloquially, I hear things like "crusties", "eye-dirt", "eye-gunk", etc.

But it's 1) twist 2) heel and 3) sleep, properly.

I have crust (in practice it's not likely to be ambiguous whether you mean the outside bit of any slice or the end slice of the loaf) and sleep.

"end piece from a loaf of bread" -> I've heard "butt bread" or "butt" but I don't really use a specific word; "end" I guess?
"the crusty bits in your eyes when you wake up" -> "sleep" specifically though it's also a type of "gunk"

I called them eye boogers when I was like an 8 year old but they've never come up in conversation since then so I don't know
I just call that gross weird slice of bread 'the end piece'

(My version of) Dutch:
End slice of bread: informally 'kontje' (butt), formally 'kapje' (cap)
The crusty bits in your eyes when you wake up: 'slaapkorsten' (sleep crusts)

The end piece of bread is the Scherzl vor me, as is the first one, although that's sometimes the anschnitt when I want to differentiate.
And when it's fresh and proper bread, it is the best piece of bread /breadwank

Also, ugh, whenever I read the name Bastian Sick, I get those neck shivers of unpleasantness.

"the last slice that most people don't want to eat" and "sleep".

The crust (which I eat as a normal piece of bread by the way), though I'd recognise the heel of a loaf, even if I wouldn't say it. And sleep in my eyes, never sand or anything like that.

The crusty bits in your eyes when you wake up is lleganya in Catalan, from Latin laganĕa, from lagănum "crust", "fritter".

Butt, heel, or possibly bird food for the bread, possibly sleep or ick for the other stuff.
