"Ice block"? You mean flavored ice. An ice block is a ice cube which is just frozen water. Big difference in meaning and mostly by calorie count.

In Australia we call them ice blocks.
Ice cream is good but i dont eat it much.
Sometimes it seems to give me phlegm and its not good for weight and that.
Plus i drink too much and ice cream an booze dont mix.
Ice cream is good though.
I guess i just like ice blocks more lately.
Chocolate sundays with chocolate topping and nuts are good though. Deep fried ice cream is pretty killa also.

Sorry but Ice Cream destroy 'ice blocks' lol. You just eat the other substance to watch your weight/not feel guilty/be poor.

Ice cream tastes way better. The guilt after eating half a tub is something I never have to deal with when I eat slushies (or "ice blocks"), though.

No clue about the soda. I guess a soft drink can mean any sort of sweetened beverage while soda means only the carbonated variety. I don't know.

I guess when we think of tomato sauce, we think of the stuff that goes in Italian cuisine. The difference between those sauces and "ketchup" are big enough to warrant this distinction.

I just call them "fries." I don't know why "French" is in there. They are distinct from potato wedges due to how they are cut. I also call them "chips" if I'm referring to them with fish. "Chips" usually means the super crispy, thinly sliced, bagged snack type here, so I don't use that much. Some people call the bagged stuff "potato crisps" but that's extremely uncommon.

I know what cricket is.

I don't know. I never even bought a gun before and I own a gun. It's just sitting in my garage. It is a 12-gauge shotgun.
