Everyone Is Arguing About What To Call Ice Pops

Everyone Is Arguing About What To Call Ice Pops

For a country that is relatively so small compared to others, the cultural differences from region to region of the UK are mind blowing.

And this is no more obvious than when we try to agree on what to call different items of food. We have the classic barm/bap/bun/cob/whatever other weird word you want to use. And when the weather turns warmer, the 'ice pop' debate rears its ugly head.

Please note, I've called it the 'ice pop' debate because if you call it anything else, you don't deserve to have an opinion.

People have thought of all sorts of strange terms for what can only really be called an ice pop. We've seen 'freezie', 'tip top' and 'ice pole'. The mind truly boggles.

The debate began last year when we clocked this tweet. Everyone was getting on with their life, minding their own business, when one guy on Twitter decided to begin what can only be described as civil unrest with his bold assumption that 'ice pole' is the right term for those plastic tubes of over flavoured icy goodness.

People were suitably outraged the first time round, with the tweet throwing up even more confusing suggestions as to what we should call the summer delicacy.

And now, a simple poll has caused yet more regional confusion.

This innocent question was met with an expected amount of ridicule, with people obviously shocked and confused and the concept of calling an ice pop an ice pole.

Ice pole or ice pop though, I'm sure we can all join together to agree that 'freeze rod' is simply a step too far.
