Neither are correct, it is ice pop wink

I'm from near Liverpool and we call it a lolly ice. I think its just a regional thing though

bigfatcath Tue 31-May-11 18:51:04

But I'm from further north and we say ice lolly!!!!!

Ice pole, I beg to differ.

2littlegreenmonkeys Tue 31-May-11 18:53:14

I am originally from Bolton, and we say Ice Lolly

Ice pole/pop are the flavoured ice in sealed plastic tubes...

Ice lollies come on sticks...

Lolly ice... Does that even make sense?!?

I say ice lolly dh says lolly ice. I am from the south he is from the north. We live in the north and the kids say lolly ice so I'm the odd one out!

TidyDancer Tue 31-May-11 18:55:37

It's definitely ice lolly! Never ever heard of a lolly ice!

AgentZigzag Tue 31-May-11 18:55:53

Ice lolly is on a stick, ice pop in a plastic sleeve thingy (it pops out the top?).

Neither any good, no choc on them, see?

Madlizzy Tue 31-May-11 18:56:31

Lolly ice for me, and DH and the kids say ice lolly. I'm a woollyback.

olibeansmummy Tue 31-May-11 18:58:31

I'm from up north and have never heard of lolly ice! Ds calls it a pop pop anyway!

meditrina Tue 31-May-11 19:00:07

No! It's a pop ice when it comes in the plastic tube!

But I'd say ice lolly (very mixed family background!) and hokey pokey.

DeWe Tue 31-May-11 19:02:12

I'd just say lolly. I'm from north.

ratspeaker Tue 31-May-11 19:02:24

Good. I'm not mad. Only Sousers say lolly ice???!!

KoolAidKid Tue 31-May-11 19:30:38

I'm from Lancashire and used to say ice lolly. Moved to Lpool several years ago and now say lolly ice, but will switch back to ice lolly when not here. So guess I'm bilingual grin

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 31-May-11 19:39:23

I had to learn to say lolly ice when I lived in Liverpool. Was there for over ten years so it kind of stuck. I quite like it actually a funny little quirk. Not as bad as DH who calls an ice cream a poke and a lolly ice an ice pole!
