I'm having a Solero. What are you having?

I am having a Solero too! Very refreshing and low calorie.

Puzzler61 Wed 12-Aug-20 14:55:41

Mmmmm mint Magnum.

Puzzler61 Wed 12-Aug-20 14:56:39

Certainly not low calorie but deliciously refreshing.

Swedish Glace choc ice lolly.

Gluten free, dairy free and delicious.

A large Magnum of any kind for me....I haven’t eaten one for years.
Now look what you have made me do! Off to the freezer to rummage for vanilla ice ream.

I had a Solero Exotic yesterday. Mmn!

Had to be a mint Magnum yesterday evening, haven't dared head for the freezer today, even though the blast of cold air is so welcome. Soleros - my second favourite!

Haagen Daas salted caramel.

Asda Raspberry sorbet and frozen yoghurt lollies, so refreshing. 63 calories so could be worse!

Don't tell anyone, but we have booked a vintage ice cream van to come to work on Friday at 1pm as a surprise for the staff and students grin Only 2 people know about it.

Locally made (on the farm) ice cream in a wide variety of flavours. The business is picking up the tab as a thank you/ welcome back gesture!

I don't usually work on Fridays, but I need to be there to pay the ice cream people.

And that, M'lud, is the case for the defence! wink

Devotion to duty is such an admirable quality I've always thought. grin

A large tub of strawberry and vanilla awaits me.

Just ordered some magnums for tomorrow’s home delivery

Magnums in our freezer too, must be what's on offer at Morrisons.
My husband always comes back with several boxes when he goes to buy "salad for my packed lunches."
Yeah, and the rest 🤣

I'm feeling 😇 as I went to the village shop to get a newspaper and didn't but a litre of honeycomb ice cream!

The last one didn't even last a week, and it's only me that eats it blush
