    Default Ice cream lolly - footballers

    In the 70s the ice cream van (probably Tonibell?) sold a lolly that had a football theme. The (plastic) lolly stick was in the shape of a footballer. I sent away for a promotional football pitch. It was a raised cardboard "stadium" with slots to slide the lolly sticks through, therefore the players body part of the stick appeared to stand on the grass. I remember collecting two full teams of players, and having them painted in team colours. This would have been around 1976-1979 time. Anyboby have any information/photos???

    You have two memories mixed there.
    Tonibell sold a miniball, which contained ice cream,
    and Lyons Maid sold the football lollys.
    There was a picture of both on the lollies thread in this section.
    If they are no longer there, I will upload them again

    Only shaped sticks I can find in my collection are superheroes.

    Lyons Maid had a lolly called Goal!, promoted by Kevin Keegan and thats where the sticks you are thinking of come from.

    That's the exact lolly I meant - thank you very much you've ended "30 years of hurt"!!!! I clearly remember colouring in the players' kits with felt tip pens rather than enamel aircraft paint. Once again - thank you.
