    Interesting you should say that as this came up at work the other day. I said a Magnum was a choc-ice, others disagreed. According to them the stick makes it an ice-cream.

    Nonsense. That would mean that a Twister was an ice-cream.

    When I was a nipper, my grandmother ran a sweetshop on Scotland Road. Amongst her stock was some really cheap ice lollies, one of which was a 'Pendelton's Twicer' than which, according to the adverts, nothing could be nicer. As we grew older, the rude connotations of the name struck us, so we couldn't risk asking for a Pendleton's Twicer as we'd be laughing too much and my grandmother, who was of a puritan mindset*, would want to know what was so funny.

    I had to look up what a Twister was so that's a good indication that I'm probably already out of my depth on this topic. But according to Wikipedia it is both an ice cream and a lollipop. And it is described as a 'lollipop on a stick' which implies that it is possible to have a lollipop without a stick. So Gaz is wrong in that the stick is not integral to the lolly. So now I don't know what to think:

    Twister is an ice cream lollipop on a stick, launched in 1982 and made by Unilever's Heart brand. It is pineapple ice cream and lime flavoured fruit ice on the outside and strawberry fruit ice on the inside and is shaped in a spiral.

    This all came about because of the bizarre procedure they have at work for getting ice cream in. Instead of everyone putting in thir order they would just go out and buy a random selection of ice creams so you'd invariably get stuck with something cack that tastes of coconut or something equaly vile. Lemon sherbert I was stuck with once.


    So I said I wanted a choc ice but apparently they don't exist anymore. Which I was sceptical about. Anyway they insisted that if you wanted to order your own choice you had to name a brand. I've got no idea, I never buy ice cream but some helpful young lady suggested I order a 'Magnum' Her reason? ''I think it's a bit like what you call a choc ice''. As though I'd been frozen in time for two centuries and just been revived FFS. But it is exactly like a choc ice. Just on a stick.

    I only know about Twisters because they were my daughters' favourite lollies when they were nippers. The cheapest lolly was a 'milk lolly', which they could be fobbed off with when tiny, but they soon cottoned on to the fact that milk lollies were a lot smaller than Twisters.

    When we were kids and dad had buggered off to pastures new, we were too skint for ice lollies. so mum decided to have a go at making them herself. She bought some moulds, sticks and an orange liquid made from God knows what. We both came out in a fierce red rash as a result, so that was the end of that. Got us a couple of days off school though.

    Fast forward 25 years, and the toxic lollies were obviously still in her thoughts, and each time I visited my mum with the ankle biters, it was Magnums all round
