M: Hey, thank you Rory for your delicious answers! Ice cream. Do you like ice cream? Doesn't everyone? So the answer to this question could be a question like doesn't everyone like ice cream? Come on, like...
R: Everybody likes ice cream.
M: Yeah, like who doesn't like pizza? Come on.
R: Where are these people?
M: Yeah, but some people dislike ice cream. Okay. And we can say that different types of ice cream cater to almost every taste. So different ice cream producers cater to different tastes.
R: Shall we talk about cater to?
R: So cater to means to make the effort, to help or to support something. And different tastes. Oh, every taste. It's a pub. Because you taste ice cream, but taste can also mean your preference.
M: And you can say that some ice creams are lactose-free. So this lactose, this ingredient. Or sugar-free. You can also say that I prefer non-dairy ice cream. Like, without any milk, it's like a dairy product, a milk product. So no milk, non-dairy ice cream, or I prefer vegan options. Right? Or low-calorie ice creams with high protein, for example. And these days, did you know that they have plant-based ice cream?
R: Oh, like, so no animal products in them at all?
M: No. They use brown rice, they use organic cocoa powder. So pretty much everything is green, plants, and organic. No, you know, these chemicals in there. So yeah, plant-based ice cream.
R: I hope there are no chemicals. Hold on, wait, if it's in the universe, then it's a chemical. What you mean is like harmful chemicals, right?
M: Yeah, no harmful chemicals. And also you can say like, oh, if I have a sensitive stomach. A sensitive stomach. The stomach is this organ, yeah?
R: It's where your food goes.
M: Yeah. It's like, you eat some of these. Yeah? Like ice cream. And then your stomach feels funny. So I have a sensitive stomach. So I prefer plant-based ice cream. Sugar-free ice cream. And also here you can talk about different types of ice creams. Can I say ice creams?
R: I don't see why not, to be honest. Because there are different kinds of ice... Well, I would say different kinds of ice cream. I consider it uncountable. But if we talk about the individual flavours, then yeah, but that's like super specific.
M: Different ice creams, different flavours, tastes, yeah? And also different types. For example, sorbet. Gelato is Italian ice cream. Gelato. Ooh, gelato, banana gelato. Mamma Mia. Also, we can have some frozen yoghurt as a type of ice cream. Ice popsicle. Rory, what is an ice popsicle?
R: Oh, you call them ice popsicles. Where I'm from, we just call them Ice Pops. But at least where I'm from an ice pop is... It's like a plastic tube that's filled with flavoured water basically and it gets frozen. And that's an ice pop. But you also have ice lollies. I don't know if they can be counted as ice cream though. I feel like the cream part of ice cream means it's got to have some kind of milk in it.
