    choco syrup

    Don't you ever say "choco syrup" as in 1? In Korea, they use it, but it seems to be wrong.

    1. They put choco syrup on their ice cream.
    2. They put chocolate syrup on their ice cream.

    Re: choco syrup

    In the UK, I'm only familiar with chocolate sauce as a topping for ice cream.

    Re: choco syrup

    I call the result chocomilk when I mix chocolate syrup with milk. But I don't know if anybody else does that. And, yes, sometimes I put the chocolate syrup on ice cream. However, I don't say choco syrup.

    Re: choco syrup

    We used to have chocolate syrup on ice cream when I was a kid. I don't ever remember hearing it called "choco syrup". However, if someone said it, I would be able to guess what they meant.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Begin a question with Don't you (or Aren't you) only when you believe the answer should be "Yes" and you want to emphasize that fact.

    Re: choco syrup

    The Japanese band Shonen Knife sing about liking choco bars, which sounds odd to my ear, but they do use the term here.
