Zmerzly

clipping from foreign language; noun
Ice cream, used more specifically to refer to gelato or any dense, very strongly flavored ice cream.
 
That little shop right there sells the best pistachio zmerzly ever!
Etymology : Clipped from the Czech 'zmrzlina,' which means ice cream. 'Zmrzlina' is one of the few words anywhere, if not the only word, to have five consecutive consonants. This is possible because 'zmrzlina' also includes some syllabic consonants, which imply a vowel. The word might have been brought into English due to its unique nature.
