With this hot weather lately, I was feeling like an ice cream, and a few of my workmates were reminiscing what type of ice creams/block when we had our summers when we were kids (or still are).

Sunnyboy

Funny Feet

Heart

Smurfee

The Finger

Cool Shark

Rocket

Return of the Jedi

Masters of the Universe

Double Choc

If you remember any other ice creams that you liked or remember, please let us know (hopefully with link if possible).

Also too, we were talking about which Paddle Pops we used to like the most.

Here is a list that I know that I have tried. I have also ordered them in preference of what I liked and disliked. Also too made them into current and past productions.

Still in production

Banana (4th)
Caramel (5th)
Chocolate (7th)
Vanilla (8th)
Rainbow (11th) - I still cannot believe that this still sells

Ones that are no longer produced (I may be showing my age with this list)

Caramel Choc (Equal 1st)
Choc-Toff (Equal 1st)
Mint-Choc (2nd)
Banana Split (3rd)
Strawberry (6th)
Strawberry Malt (9th) - the malt didn't go well with strawberry, but would have with vanilla
Bubblegum (10th) - addictive for the first few times but was absolutely disgusting after a while. But it was still better the Rainbow.
Mud Puddle (last) - no wonder it was done away with. I wasn't sure whether the brown centre was supposed to be, it certainly didn't taste like chocolate!

When I was kid, paddle pops were known as "by-jingos". That was in Townsville in the 70s. I wonder how universal that term was?

Paddle Pops where made by Streets at Corrimal at the time we were kids. They have been around for over 60 years!

However, you may have had a local produced item as a similar product, but with a different name and supplier, and perhaps under license.

I remember there used to be a huge wars between Pauls Billabong and Streets Paddle Pop and about who was better.

There were even a war between Streets and Peter's little cups of vanilla ice cream they both had.

Streets Blue Ribbon

Peter's Dixie Cup

Paul's and Peter's ice cream were once owned together in the mid 80's and they thought that they can push out Streets as a competitor, but Streets fought back with the now famous Paddle Pop Lick-a-Prize.

My recollection is that "By Jingo" was used in a generic way to refer to all icecream-on-a-stick type of things much like "lolly" refers to any number of sticky sweets.

Here in Townsville there used to be a Peter's Icecream factory on Ingham Rd. near the Causeway and a Kirks softdrink factory a few hundred metres away on Charters Towers Rd. I know because in 1973 my school class walked from the school to each of these for a guided tour and received free icecream and softdrinks.

I loved visiting my grandma. She would make ice cream sandwiches. 2 rectangular wafers with an icecream slice between them.

Not sure you can even buy the ingredients now for them. I know I tried a few years back and couldn't get them.

I know you can still buy the wafers at most supermarkets, below is the brand.

http://www.altimatefoods.com.au/retail-ice-cream-wafers.html#.WJQhLks0PyM

I also remember that you could buy the ice cream in the rectangle shape in individual packets for the wafers, but I don't think you can anymore.

But we used to use normal ice cream where we had a mould about the shape of the wafer and filled the mould with ice cream and remover the mould and put the wafer biscuit on each side.

And they were yummy too!

The other thing we used to do is when the Mr Whippy van came around, we used to get the soft serve ice-cream and also a packet of plain salted Smith's Crisps.

We used to scoop the ice-cream with the chip and eat them together. When I first heard of this (from my mother) I thought it was disgusting, sweet ice cream with salt crisps. But it is a match made in heaven. It doesn't work with any of the other flavours (I have tried all most of them), but the plain salted was the best.

Hey JPabo, re the crisps/ice cream thing. Its a match made in heaven all right! My favourite taste combination is a cone from maccas with a medium fries, i dip the fries in the ice cream and eat. Marvellous :),, like you someone told me once about it and i though, screw that, sounds horrible, then one day tried it and wammo, where have you been all my life!! a few workmates are fans too after initial resentments, i remember in the late 80's at public school if the temp reached the 40's getting a free ice lemonade ice block, it was a cheap one, like 20c at the time, cant remember what it was called, but very popular, i remember too that after biting into it, it could often cut your lip on second bite and leave a little blood stain on it

Not a fan of Macca's, I haven't been there for years. I never liked their fries.

As for the ice block, there were super doopers, or icy poles, but the super doopers were the cheapest, 10 cents was their price. Icy Poles were about 40cents. We had something similar to Sunnyboys, but half the size.

Works great with hot chips too - everyone I've ever mentioned it to seemed disgusted but don't hate till you've tried it I think!
