There are some claimed differences that AFAIK do not exist and 
should be made clear that difference is at most theoretical.

For now I added

"Very often used for places selling ice cream to be eaten on the spot, 
it is dubious whatever there is some consistent difference in real tagging. 
Consider using 
takeaway=only/takeaway=yes/takeaway=no to record this kind of info."

I plan to remove 
"the difference being amenity=ice_cream for some reason 
may be used for frozen yogurts too"
claim from 
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dice_cream <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dice_cream>
as the next step
