Strawberry Split

My favourite childhood ice lolly...yummy!

 

Strawberry ice surrounding a cream vanilla ice cream centre the Strawberry Split was a real summertime treat...made all the more fabulous and seemingly luxurious (at least to a 6 year old mind) by the inclusion of both ice lolly and ice cream.

 

There are two versions of this lolly...the Walls "Strawberry Split" and the Lyons Maid "Mivvi"...both were basically the same lolly. I cannot actually remember there being much difference except for the wrappers, but that could be the passing of time speaking!

 

I cannot find any information bout the origins of this ice lolly, but family sources inform me they have been around since at least the 1960s.

 

A memorable childhood choice from the ice cream van and one I could not resist taking a sneaky bite out of ;)
