13 discontinued ice pops we need to bring back immediately

Fat frogs, Chilly Willies, Mario pops…

LAST WEEK, WE ranked ice pops. This week, we’re looking back fondly on ice pops that have sadly left us.

1. Fat Frog

The absolute holy grail of ice pops. For goodness sake HB, bring them back already.

2. Sky

Like an Aero, but in ice cream form. Heaven.

3. Sparkles

A staple in every Irish childhood. Sparkles came in a range of flavours but everyone knows the orange is the best.

4. Lemonade sparkle

Not to be confused with Sparkles.

White and fizzy, these were as refreshing as a bucket of water over the head.

5. Dracula

Fruity and gave you a big red gob, just like you’d been sucking blood. Excellent.

6. Mr Men lollies

What colour would you get? It was a lifelong mystery, well, until you opened it.

7. Mini Milk

Like the Sparklers, but more of a milkshake flavour than fruity.

8. Super Mario

9. Zig and Zag

It’s hard to describe the Super Mario ice pop, other than ‘absolutely amazing’. The Zig and Zag pop was shortlived but that hundreds and thousands coating still enters our dreams.

10. Boomy

Usually one reserved for holidays, Boomy consisted of a strawberry, lemon and orange segment. Sure it was practically healthy.

11. Jurassic Park lolly

These limited edition pops should have definitely made a comeback for Jurassic World. LOOK AT THEM. They were shaped like a T Rex and basically snack foods didn’t get any better than this.


12. Chilly Willy

Basically a glorified orange ice pop. The puns were endless though.

13. Mister Long

These were massive and had a huge stick. There’s not much material about them online but they live on in our memories.
