    ice cream

    Hi, everybody.
    I have a question about one.

    Which one is correct?

    I have vanilla and chocolate ice cream for dessert. Which would you rather have?
    ( ) They're my favorite flavors.

    1. Either one.
    2. Neither one.
    3. Two of them.
    4. I'd prefer none.


    Either one seems right, but isn't ice cream uncountable?

    Re: ice cream

    Hi mochimochi

    'One' refers to flavor, not ice cream; i.e., I prefer either one of those flavors:

    A: I had vanilla and chocolate ice cream for dessert. Which would you rather have?
    B: Either one [flavor]. They're my favorite flavors.

    1. Either one.
    2. Neither one.
    3. Two of them.
    4. I'd prefer none.
