Ice creams of the past

My parents had a dislike for Arctic roll, so it probably only ever entered our house twice.

Because of this, I still view it as a rare treat for special occasions and get unreasonably excited over them.

It's the little things you get nostalgic for.

a staple of my youth was a milk flavoured lolly which had a flake buried through the middle of it. I think they were called a '99, but im unable to find any pictures of it. A fantastic icey treat.

I'm with Egg here. It might have been a regional thing, but the '99 definitely existed in the early 90's. It was made by Sidoli who were a South Wales based firm. 

They were pretty shit though in all honesty. Feast for me.

Was there ever a third Feast flavour? 

This thread has made me realise that I still eat way too much ice cream as most the things people are looking back at nostalgically are still staples of my junk food regime.

I don't know how long for, but Iceland have started stocking these. I hate liquorice, so haven't tried the Black Jacks, but my mum loves them. The Fruit Salads are really nice. Given how popular the original sweets are, it's a little surprising this idea didn't occur sooner, I'm sure they would've gone down hugely back in the 80s and 90s.

Regular chocolate, mint, and I think there was a toffee one.

I love Blackjacks but these were rank, sadly. I was left with a cold black tongue and belly full of regret. Haven't tried the others.
