WATERMELON ICELOLLY CRUSH..and why I am licking my screen

 WATERMELON ICELOLLY CRUSH...
and why I am licking my screen.


I HAVE A BIG PROBLEM...
I AM SUFFERING FROM WITHDRAWLS...
shakes, cramps, aching bones, hallucinations, headspins. Okay, so maybe I am over dramatising a little bit...but seriously now...
These ice blocks/iced lollys whatever you call them, are watermelon flavoured slices of sheer bliss. I can only try to merely hint at their delectability, how on a hot, steamy day, with armpits leaking, brow furrowed and moist...one bite  and your tongue tingles. Body core temp drops, corners of your mouth go up, and a little thankful prayer for freezers begins to run through your cooling mind. Then...you discover teeny bits of chocolate, cunningly disguised as seeds.

I ask you, is there any greater genius?!

The very sad thing, is that I have never ever seen these in Australia. I would like to submit a letter of pleading to Pauls and Walls iceblocks...can they show mercy, and distribute these here?For now, I will just lick my screen, (ice-screen?)and dream...
