something cool

your choice of a FAB or a ZOOM
(they're probably a little more than 6d these days)(well, I know that they are)(and the sugar strands on the FAB don't cover as much of the lolly as they used to)(and I don't think that they are allowed to use the food colouring that made the top of the ZOOM so green anymore)(not that I'm moaning about the good old days!)(or am I?)

I don't know of Fab or Zoom (apart from here in I,SLTV land) but I grew up with their cousin Bomb Pop.

For your enjoyment, here are some links to a few images of same:

How about an Eskimo Pie? Or a slider. In NZ, long ago, we had the Topsie. Chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream on a stick. Today, they would not be allowed to run the advert, I'll bet.
(Will come back with a link if I find one)

How extraordinary! I come here from replying to comments at my place to find Fab and Zoom (don't know what happened to Mivvi) as if in telepathic response to a French equivalent I once came across called Zit.
