Anyone remember Bug Pops? They were like a pole with lots of little jelly bugs riddled throughout the length of the lolly. Used to have them when i stopped by the spar on the way to my mums horse field near Moors Valley.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Yeah, I do! They were around 1998-ish, yes?

Bug Pops?

No, never heard of these, but they sound interesting though...

Indeed. I havent seen one since then though so they must be no longer going.

An excellent topic to uncover. And a good reason to bump, too!

On the Bordersdown forum we're trying to find a photograph of this DKC ice cream. It seems there isn't a single one on the internet, anywhere!
http://www.bordersdown.net/threads/1170 ... emember-it

Does anyone, by any chance, have a snap? Perhaps a photo from the beach holding one? You can crop yourself out, we just want the ice cream.

Have you perhaps seen one online somewhere?

Or maybe you've recently stolen an ice cream truck, which has a pic plastered on its side. Any help would be appreciated.

Considering that I haven't stumbled across that one either, and it's from Walls just like the DKC one, it's definitely worth posting.

Thanks!

Man I love ice cream, I never really had any novelty ones though I just ate the well known stuff like Feast, magnum, twister, fab, cornettos etc.

I might make it a thing soon to start trying out different ice creams.

Anyone remember these? I used to love them - I couldn't find any pictures of the lolly itself, but it was basically a green, dinosaur shaped exterior with red strawberry flavoured crushed ice underneath that. It was delicious.
