I am wilting in the Aussie summer heat. I don’t know if it’s the years in the northern hemisphere or the fact I’m not a kid anymore, but I just can’t cope. Perth’s searing 40 degree days are bad; Sydney’s hot, sticky mugginess is almost worse. Really can’t decide. Really can’t do anything actually. Except eat icypoles (ice lollies for the Brits reading this).
Man! Why haven’t I had an icypole since primary school? They are the bomb! Way better than ice cream because when it’s so hot you hide from the sun like it’s nuclear fallout, you don’t want creamy sweetness. You just want crisp frozen “raspberry” flavoured sugar water.
The only exception to icypoles beating ice cream is the Splice – ice cream coated in icypole. Perfect!
