    soft serve ice cream 顧名思義就是 「賣給你時就是軟的冰淇淋」,soft 是「軟」,serve 是 「賣」、「交給顧客」。

    冰淇淋原本是冷凍堅硬,室溫下才會融化變軟。 八十年前有位賣冰淇淋的,車子爆胎,車上冰淇淋逐漸軟化,他勉強把車開到一個停車場把冰淇淋賣給度假客。軟化的冰淇淋竟也在兩天內全數售光,他發現商機,就研究製作 soft 的冰淇淋,並發明一種機器,用來 serve,稱之為 soft serve ice scream,即最早的霜淇林。

    Soft serve is just a kind of ice cream, but because its high air content makes it softer than regular ice cream, to distinguish itself, it is thus called "soft serve".
