Recently someone on a thread mentioned ye olden days when I was a wee whatever, and a treat of yesterday that you don’t see nowadays - an ice cream wafer. I used to love those.
At home as a kid we didn’t have a fridge ( probably invented but no way we could afford one where I grew up). Ma used to put the milk bottles in a pail of water in the pantry to try and keep it from turning. Everyone shopped daily and summer was a battle to stop things going off.
I won’t relate some of the horrors we were subjected to, the least was weavils all over biscuits and crackers.
As time went by we would get a lolly ice as a treat. They were usually bright orange and dyed all the skin round your mouth and on your hands so you looked like one of the Simpsons.
My favourite lolly ice ever was a Strawberry Mivvi. I don’t know if they still make them or if they do, if they taste the same.
I think they made Pineapple mivvies too.
What was your favourite ice cream or lolly from those golden days ?
