The Burning Question*: Ice-pops or ice-cream?

It’s midweek in a heatwave, so let TheJournal.ie distract you from the ‘serious’ news with one of life’s REAL dilemmas. (*not really)

WE KNOW HOW you feel. It’s Wednesday, it’s hitting the high 20s outside and you’re stuck in work.

(If you’re not, we don’t want to hear it.)

So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and distract yourself with a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: Something chilly is your only man in this weather. However, we’ve heard someone say – just today – that it’s “too hot” for ice-cream and that only ice lollies are acceptable.

Could this be true? Which would you plump for this lunchtime?

Poll Results:

Ice-cream (1828)
I don't let anything below room temperature in my mouth (1096)
Ice-pop (848)
