  • You cant lump ice creams and lollies together though.

    Having said that, the 99 wins all forever

  • I think this is heading down the jaffa cake debate route (cake or biscuit?)
    What is a lolly made of ice cream, is it a lolly or an ice cream on a stick?
    Of course after watching a Magnum commercial we both know it's neither...

  • Always remember the ice cream van coming to my secondary school during lunch breaks, it was such a daily treat. Every day I had a cherry brandy ice lolly with ice cream along the top with juice. Ooooh to be a kid again! Happy days!

    ​My absolute fave lolly tho, was and still is, the FAB πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
    Peace is always beautiful.

  • Hmmmm on a hot sunny day you cant beat an ice pole. Sadly i dont have a freezer as i only buy fresh food. So a trip to the shop for ice cream means im forced to eat a whole tub.

    Is this a trick question?

    Should this be in the 'you know you are getting old when...' thread?

    I'm sure I remember a '99' with 'bubblegum' syrup costing a lot less than 99p

    Inflation, it's a wonderful thing.

  • I find it pretty funny that the PP community is friendly and harmonious ... until biscuits, ice creams and lollies are involved. Then it’s war πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Indeed it is Nataly. I am lucky enough to know the owners. They only use local milk and cream direct from the farmers and source all the ingrediants as close to home as possible. They have some weird flavours like christmas pudding ( pudding made by the ladies from the local WI )and even a vegan option.

  • Phew, going to be a scorcher today. Could even be a two ice cream kind of day
    Of course when there's TWO on offer, it changes everything. You have to balance and compliment the flavours. So, I'm thinking a white choc Magnum followed by a Calippo. Lemonade flavour ideally, to cleanse the palate.

    Oh, I thought of another old favourite, which didn't make this poll. The classic Nobbly Bobbly

  • Spooky re Nobbly Bobbly πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€ as like Jon, choose to not have freezer, but Asda do packs of four Nobbly’s and last few visits have contemplated buying the four pack and eating all four, or buying the four pack and giving three away outside, but in today’s society, I know people would look at me as if I was mad, so rather than end up with three melting in my hands, I’ve not bought!

    ​Today however, I’m using the God send Magicool spray! Absolute MUST πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜“

    Yes they would. I remember once offering strangers on the Tube in London some of my water, as it was a boiling hot day. They couldn't get away from me fast enough!
    Or maybe they're not fans of Nobbly Bobbly's @Bev ? Try Magnums next time?
