Hello Fouad Farisi,

Both can be correct. In the first one, 'ice cream' is an uncount noun - we use this, for example, when we've bought a tub of ice cream - and in the second one, it's a count noun - we use this when, for example, we've bought an ice cream cone for someone to eat at that time. Our page on count and uncount nouns might also be useful for you.

Thank you so much

Hi Team.
I think there's something missing in the transcript which reference to the video time code 0:13.
Thank you.

Hi Nizam Balinese,

You are correct! In the transcript it said:

...right from the cow to the ice-cream cone


It has now been amended to say:

...right the way from the cow to the ice-cream cone

You are very observant! Thank you for pointing this out for us.


Best wishes,

i really like the song about ice-cream, but can't find it, could you please tell me who is singing.

Hello Valeria_MVD,

As far as I know, this song was specially made for this video report, so I'm afraid you won't be able to find a recording of it. Sorry!

oooooh no((((

Good afternoon first of all hello to everyone,
let's see what kind of products comes from the cow first thing first of all actually I think milk then I think we can make cheese, yogurt,butter,cream,margarine and different kind of yogurt with different kind of flavors. Or you can make different creams for some cookies,and of course ice cream.
Yes definitely I really like ice cream with all of the flavors I don't think so is the special flavors that I really like. Sometimes I try strawberry, sometimes cinnamon sometimes vanilla, sometimes nutty and sometimes chocolate flavors. But for me it doesn't matter the flavor important is how the texture of the ice cream not the flavor.
Bye for now, and have a lovely day.

I really like this video. I wanted to use it to show my ESL students (in an Agriculture school) today. But the video doesn't work anymore as it used to.... Is there a possibility you can put it back online shortly??

Hello Pascalune
I'm sorry you weren't able to use this video. It's very strange because it's working on my computer. Have you tried viewing it in a different web browser or on a different device? As far as I can know, it should work. If you still can't see it, please let us know what browser version you are using.
All the best
