Mr Freezes were the definitive taste of an Irish childhood summer

Sun’s out, Mr Freeze’s out.

THERE ARE CERTAIN tastes that take you right back.

And when the sun was shining in Ireland, the premier ice pop for kids growing up was surely Mr Freeze.

They were so hard to open – but that only made the taste so much sweeter

And they’d cut into the side of your mouth too

It was the blue and cola Mr Freezes that were the most sought after

Things could get delightfully messy

And having one when you’re an adult takes you right back

It was one of the only things you had ever heard people refer to as a “cool pop”

They’re still available now – which is a revelation

Mr Freezes were the perfect childhood ice pop because you could drink all the melted juice at the end

It was half drink/half ice pop heaven.

Their ice cold goodness + the sun = perfection

Truly, the taste of an Irish summer
