This is a very brief post which I really wanted to add before heading off to France. It is a flavour of ice lolly that I remember absolutely loving as a kid. But, don’t ask me what it used to be called. I simply can’t remember. Er…….banana shake pop???
All I can remember is that it tasted distinctly of banana milkshake and it was a beautiful buttercup yellow. They only seemed to be found on the ice cream vans that used to feature as a big part of my life in the 70s.
Have you seen this recently?
There were many personal favourites and I did contemplate reproducing a cherry brandy lolly, having a bottle lurking in the cupboard which comes out once a year for lacing the Christmas cake with. Then there is the cider lolly, and the cola. I also remember a spearmint lolly which I adored. And, don’t forget the lemonade sparkle.
But, I knew that this banana shake lolly would work without me having to experiment with flavour and balance. Seeing as this lolly had to be made in moments, which is all the time I could give it, it works. And takes me back a bit.
So, go to your local corner shop, sweet shop or post office and buy yourself a bottle of banana milkshake. Pour it into some lolly moulds and freeze. It will take you on a journey into the 70s. Enjoy the nostalgia!
