Food·Posted on 2 June 2021The Definitive Ranking Of Iconic Australian Ice Creams And Ice BlocksThis is bound to cause some arguments.by Isha BassiEntertainment ProducerFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 25. Icy Twist View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I don't know if these still exist in Coles and Woolies, but I feel as if you can still grab them at the servo. They were nice, simple, basic — and incredibly cheap (usually only $1). But if you had cash to spare, they were usually forgotten about. 24. Billabong View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I was never a huge fan of Billabongs as they always tasted like an inferior version to the popular Paddle Pops. Cute packaging though! 23. Sunnyboy @pangasT / Via Twitter: @pangasT Ah, nothing quite screams Aussie nostalgia like memories of slurping up a Sunnyboy during summer. They were delicious, but if I'm being honest, they were also a real pain in the ass to eat. 22. Lifesavers Flickr: Stylezzi / Via Flickr: stylezzi These weren't the best, but they certainly weren't the worst. The colours were pretty and stained your tongue, which really was half the fun. 21. Bulla Frozen Yoghurt View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Okay, okay, before everyones comes at me with pitchforks, I know these are technically frozen yogurt and not ice cream. But I feel as if they're iconic enough to belong on this list. This was a hot commodity at my school's canteen and you had to be in quick if you wanted to snag a mini mango tub to enjoy at lunch. 20. Choc Mint Drumstick View this photo on Instagram instagram.com The little mint chocolate balls do elevate this Drumstick, but I gotta say their classic flavour trumps it every time. 19. Bubble O'Bill View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Is it un-Australian not to love Bubble O'Bills? Perhaps, but I guess I'm un-Australian then because I find them...incredibly fine. Like, they're not horrible and the gumball is fun, but I could think of a whole bunch of other ice creams I would rather eat instead. 18. Icy Pole View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Icy Poles look basic as fuck, but nothing beats having one on a hot summer's day. The simplicity of the lemonade flavour was nice, but the raspberry one was where it was at. 17. Zooper Dooper View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Nothing, and I repeat, nothing is more synonymous with an Aussie summer than Zooper Doopers. But that's the thing — I feel as if I only eat a Zooper Dooper during summer and not any other time of the year. For that reason, I've ranked them lower. 16. Frosty Fruits View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Frosty Fruits are the sort of frozen treat you grab when you're trying to be healthy and allow yourself to believe that 100% fruit juice means just that. They're refreshing and cool you off nicely. 15. Chocolate Paddle Pop View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Look, there's not much to say here. Chocolate-flavoured ice cream is always going to be a winning combination. 14. Classic Vanilla Drumstick View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Peanuts, cone, vanilla ice cream — there's a lot to like about a Drumstick and I would certainly enjoy one if it was given to me. But, I'm team Cornetto all the way. 13. Banana Paddle Pop View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Supposedly people don't like Banana Paddle Pops and to them I say, well I can see you don't have taste. They slap — the banana flavour just screams childhood and makes me feel like a kid again. It's bloody delicious and don't tell me otherwise. 12. Milo Scoop Shake View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I don't think I've tasted a Milo product I don't like and this includes the Scoop Shake. I have fond memories of letting it melt just a little bit so it became the perfect consistency before scarfing it down. 11. Magnum Classic View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Yeah, I know this is literally just vanilla ice cream dipped into chocolate — but there's just something about Magnums that put them on another level. I don't know if it's the chocolate (the crack as you bite into it is so satisfying) or the ice cream, but either way it's delicious. 10. Splice Pine Lime View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Splices are the perfect thing when you can't decide between an ice cream or an ice block. You've got the pine lime outer layer, which is refreshing AF, as well as the vanilla ice cream inner layer, which is yum, yum, yum. As Debbie Vickers from Puberty Blues put it: "A Splice is nice, I could eat one twice." 9. Connoisseur View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I debated putting Connoisseur on here as it's very fancy and a little bit on the expensive side. But considering you can get them in servos now, I thought they deserved a spot. Look, money does get you quality and gourmet ingredients — but to honest, I would pick the cheaper Aussie ice creams any day of the week. There's just something about their sweetness and nostalgia that I can't go past! 8. Calippo View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Calippos are the sort of ice block that are perfect when lazing at the beach, pool or on a road trip. Thanks to their handy little design, any drips are caught in the container, meaning you get to slurp on them at the end. The only downside is when the cardboard gets a bit soft and ends up in your mouth. 7. Maxibon Flickr: Ben Sutherland / Via Flickr: bensutherland Whether you eat the chocolate or biscuit side first, that doesn't matter — because we can all agree, collectively as a country, that we love Maxibons. They're a superior ice cream, enough said. 6. Cornetto Vanilla View this photo on Instagram instagram.com There's few things that can beat the simplicity of a Cornetto Vanilla. Tasty ice cream, crunchy cone (that's never soggy), choc bits and peanuts on top, as well as that iconic chocolate bottom. Mmmm, I'm craving one now. 5. Rainbow Paddle Pop View this photo on Instagram instagram.com All Paddle Pops are delicious, but it's a known fact that the Rainbow flavour sits above the rest. No argument, just the truth. 4. Cyclone View this photo on Instagram instagram.com I hope whoever invented the Cyclone is having a nice life because they deserve it for making such a thing of beauty. Yeah, it tastes great and the shape is pretty cool — but it's the sorbet-like texture that really makes this Aussie ice block stand out from the crowd. 3. Magnum Almond View this photo on Instagram instagram.com They are just as good as the Magnum Classics, but just edge out for those crunchy, crunchy almond pieces. YUM! 2. Weis Mango And Ice Cream Bar View this photo on Instagram instagram.com It's sad that not one of my friends or family members thought to introduce me to the world of Weis Bars earlier. But no, I only found out how incredible these ice cream bars were a couple of years ago, meaning that my entire childhood was devoid of the mango flavour (as well as the mango and macadamia variety) that now gives me so much joy. 1. Golden Gaytime View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @slapdash_mama Was there ever any doubt that Golden Gaytimes would be crowned the king of frozen Aussie treats? There's nothing quite like it taste-wise and really, it deserves this spot for confusing so many non-Australians with its slogan: "It's hard to have a Gaytime on your own."
