  • Tip Top

    This marine debris was found in Somerset. Initial research shows Tip tops produced a narrow ice lolly. The width of this suggests a jubbly form but jubbly were produced by calypso. 4d suggests uk origin. Any suggestions?

    I thought that Tip Top was the cream in a tin made by Nestle that one poured over fruit salad - that was what the 1980s and 1990s adverts told us anyway. The fruit that never stops talking - cue people like Barbara Windsor and Donald Sinden lending their voices to the fruit pieces in a bowl just before they were to be drenched by a pouring of Tip Top.

    I assume that the ice lolly thing that you found was unconnected to that?

      Yes, a brand of 'ice pole' or 'freeze pop' made in West Bromwich.

          Was this version of Tip Top a bit like Mr Freeze?
