For a while it always had to be Mini Milk.

Had a Funny Feet once, dripped all over me and made a mess of a favourite T-shirt.

Then there was the primary school where we used to play rounders - and the teacher would treat the winning team to ice lollies, usually the Walls Orangeade/Lemonade. Huge great solid lollies for the bargain price of 10p (1980 prices).

Nowadays I tend to stick to Feasts.

Ooh yeah, what were they actually called? They were one up from a ice-pop, one down from a Zoom.

Mr Freezers (pronounced - in Liverpool at least - as Mister Freezees). 10p a pop - I loved cola, lime and bubblegum flavours.

I'm sure there were double and jumbo versions as well. Lovely stuff.

Yes, but they're getting hard to find. I think they've changed the name AGAIN, the last one I had was called a Magnum Sandwich I think.

I used to be a big fan of the toffee crumble. I know you still get them but they are very different from the old ones. The old ones had a chewy centre whereas the modern ones have ice cream and they just aren't as nice.

These days I am addicted to the mini twister.

Mentioned these before, but now I've found a picture!

Tend to be easier to find in cash and carries.

And the spiritual successor to Mr. Freezes - there is no better picture of this product on the whole of the internet, I think.

There was also a Feastwich (I think that was the name) - basically the same thing, but both ends were biscuit. Shame they don't do those any more as they were lovely.

You do know that Mr Freeze is still widely available right? We sell 3 different sizes/types in the cash and carry where I work. Good sellers too.
