HB Fiddlestix – Old Advert 1973



Sounded like a good idea, but these sticks never matched the reliable wood sticks.
HB Ice Cream was good, but never a fan of their pure Ice Pops (never called them Lollies). Palm Grove produced  the juiciest  ice pop.

Scanned by Brand New Retro from Our Boys, July 1973.

  1. i always remember how for a while, there was a couple of the machines on the amusement arcades where you could jam the lolly stick into the slot to eek out the pennies…in the end though we just banged and nudged the machines until the alarms went off and we’d get chased out…i laugh when i think of how the choc ice was the snob of lollypops.


  2. Jeez, I was 12/13 in 1973 but I don’t remember any of those ones! And why did they spell it “lollie” instead of “lolly”? The ones I really liked (apart from Choc-ices – pretty rare, those) were “Icebergers”, with that weird soft brown-coloured outer wafer that tasted a little bitter. They were HB, weren’t they?


    • It worth who has a videos I wonder older RTE advert breaks from the 1960’s or 1970’s decades. Every year since 1980 is online via YouTube.
