    I’m sure you all have heard بستنی دایتی. It’s a famous brand of ice cream. They (the company) always write this word in English like “Daity”.
    I want to propose a question on this word. Do you think this means “DIET ICE CREAM”?
    like diet cola( نوشابه رژیمی) or diet food
    If yes, so why hasn’t this company used the right dictation. ie diety. They can not be so ignoramus to make this big mistake.
    If no, why have they chosen a name which looks like “diet”?

    D'après moi oui,c'est possible mais je n'en suis pas certain du tout !

    It seems that they didn't want to be blamed for using an English word so they've made an innovative label :)

    What makes me think further is that , Companies usually have translators. Even an amateur translator knows orthography of this word correctly.
    arash,
    There are many makes of products which are foreign. They even deliberately choose English&European names to sound more modern. This way they can urge more and more customers to buy their brands. Is it not so?

    I just visited their website( ofcourse not easily findable).
    I browsed a couple of pages and I could not see any hint regarding "DIET". So, until now , we know that it has nothing to do with diet products and guess it is only a name by chance.
    Ideas, please.

    Well...I think the company CEO is zoroastrian. In Mazdisna, No.1 page 50, جيحون river is called دايتي.

    Anyway , thanks.
