Three of Australia’s most iconic stick ice creams are now available in one litre tubs at IGA supermarkets.
Ice cream brand Streets on Tuesday launched ‘scoopable’ versions of its legendary Bubble O’Bill, Rainbow Paddle Pop and Golden Gaytime flavours, widely regarded as the nation’s favourite ice creams.
Bubble O’Bill is made from chocolate and caramel ice cream swirled together with bubble gum flavoured candy pieces.
Rainbow Paddle Pop is an ‘all-time Aussie favourite’ with caramel flavoured, colourful swirls and Golden Gaytime is made from toffee and vanilla mixed with crispy biscuit.
The $8 tubs are already available in IGA stores Australia-wide from Tuesday, July 14, and will launch in Woolworths at the end of July and Coles from mid-August.
