How to Buy an Ice Cream in China Using Chinese Words!

Summer means sunshine, beach, friends and lots of ice cream in China!

In China, summer starts in June and ends in August. It’s a time when flowers are in full bloom, the sunshine tans your skin and students are on a break from school.

Chinese summer is full of holidays and festivals. It’s definitely a great time to relax from studying and unwind. While summer means freedom and enjoyment, Chinese summer can be summed in one word: HOT!

One of the best ways to relieve the hot weather is to have ice cream in China!


It’s summertime now here in Beijing. 35°C /95°F today! Except for air-conditioning, one thing I can’t live without is the ice cream in China during the hot summer.

Recently, the double egg ice cream bar became viral on social media. So this week, I would like to talk about ice creams.

Here are Chinese words you can say when buying ice cream in China:

  • 雪糕 (xuěgāo) ice cream bar
  • 双黄蛋雪糕 (shuānghuángdàn xuěgāo) double egg ice cream bar
  • 雪人 (xuéren) doll head ice cream bar
  • 冰棍儿 (bīnggùnr) popsicle
  • 蛋筒 (dàntǒng) ice cream cone
  • 冰淇淋 (bīngqílín) ice cream

What kind of ice cream do you like to have during the summer? 你最喜欢吃什么冰淇淋?Nǐ zuì xǐhuan chī shénme bīngqílín?
