One the great things about the great British summer, is enjoying long hot, sunny days with a super-cool ice lolly (I think you call them ice-pops in the States). One of my favourite lollies is Fab. This three-tiered lolly is a bit like a trifle: raspberry ice, with a vanilla ice covering, coated in sprinkles (in my day we called them ‘hundreds and thousands’, but hey-ho).
Being a child of the ‘70’s and enjoying the summer of ’76, I got through my fair amount of these and I still enjoy them today. This year, Fab is celebrating its 50th birthday with a limited edition Birthday Cake Fab. The lolly still has its signature raspberry juice, but it’s coated with vanilla sponge flavour ice coated with birthday sprinkles; just like a traditional birthday cake.
I had my first Fab of the summer. It was perfect after a day out in the
sunshine. Here’s hoping for more delightful days. Here comes the sun and Happy Birthday, Fab; may there be more fabulous years to come!
