Thinking about Bird’s Ice Magic reminded me of when the ice cream van used to come round and all the kids in the neighbourhood would rush out to buy a Strawberry Mivvi or a 99. Personally I was quite partial to Oysters – I loved the marshmallow bit at the bottom of the shell. Yum!
Sometimes though it was nice to just have a little tub of the soft whippy ice cream drenched in one of those runny yet incredibly sticky ice cream sauces. Most ice cream vans had a selection of these for you to choose from, and all would offer chocolate and either strawberry or raspberry as a minimum. So, which flavour of this sugary goodness was your favourite?
