Talking Ice Cream

This topic might be reminiscent of a thread where Irmamar was asking about different names for mushrooms in English......

I was just reading on a different website where a Spanish-speaker (native to Argentina) couldn't figure out why he can only find one English word for "ice cream". Well, there are a few words that imply ice cream (ice cream, sorbet, sherbet, soft serve, custard...), but mostly we would always just say "ice cream".

What other words are there in Spanish for "helado". I think that I can start with "helado de crema", "helado de agua" and "helado de palito". Right?

More??

Not necessarily..........I've heard "nieve" for ice cream, custard, etc

The shaved ice is called "raspado".

Raspado is piragua in the Caribbean countries. Another English word for
ice cream is gelato. Borrowed from Italian, it's expensive and often more
intensely flavored ice cream.

Yes. Sorry. I meant nieve instead of helado. In Chile at least we don't "nieves" o "conos de nieve", we understand, but we know that it comes from Mexico and other countries. Not sure about Spain.

In Spain you have also "polo" = Popsicle® (AmE), ice lolly (BrE)
Also "cucurrucho (de helado)" = ice-cream, cone, cornet. (or "helado de cucurrucho.)
And "un corte", as in corte de helado (Esp) ice cream sandwich (AmE), wafer (BrE) [or 'helado de corte' as I include below]

And then Moliner gives,
Canuto, cornete, copete, corte, crocanti, helado de corte, mantecado, nieve, paleta, pijama, pistache, polo, sorbete, tarta helada.
Escarchado, garapiñado [o garrapiñado], granizado.

[I explain these in Spanish and English, a bit off the cuff, but let me know if any question.]

Canuto, in Mexico = Helado de huevo y leche cuajado en moldes de forma de canuto.
Cornete = helado de cucurucho
Copete = (just the top of the 'sorbete') Sorbete = sherbet; sorbet
crocanti = (helado, polo) ice cream coated in nutty chocolate
mantecado = (helado) dairy ice cream
paleta = polo
pijama = helado variado, con flan, nata y fruta en almíbar.
pistache = Dulce o helado que se prepara con el fruto del alfóncigo [pistacho].
tarta helada = ice cream (in the shape of cake)

The "Escarchado, garapiñado [o garrapiñado]"
and
granizado (bebida) = drink served on crushed ice;
granizado de limón = iced lemon drink
granizado (helado) type of chocolate chip ice cream (Río de la Plata)

From my memory:
banana Esplit = banana split (of course, in ESpain you pronounce the E with the "S" )

Yo can also have, in some cases un "Yo grito"
I hope I do not have to explain this last one!
I got to go, as I didn't take any dessert, and I start feeling thirsty too!

(In Spain you also have some trademarks, like "Frigolín", which was very popular and synonym of "ice cream"...)

Yes, Poli mentions it above too. (I never heard of it, myself)
