ice cream "scoops"


Andrew saw this one in France. Perhaps the translator believes that "scoops" is a stupid word, or the colloquial term for the thing. I will agree, scoop is a weird word.

Oh, ice cream. I go back and forth on this one. Which is worse, a "scoop" or a "dip"? I kind of hate them both.

If you don't like "scoop" or "dip," you can always return to the original French: "boule" means "ball."

Better?

Alison said...

yeah, I'll take it!

I despise the re-pluralisation of panini.
