Ice-cream lollies are pretty much the best non-alcoholic part of summer.
We're blessed here in Britain with an unbelievable ice-cream selection when the Match of the Day theme tune comes ringing around the estate. Whether you fancy a classic 99p, a Cornetto, a Magnum, a Twister, a Rocket, a Fab, a Feast, or one of those ones that comes in a tube that I always forget the name of.
Obviously personal taste is the main thing that comes into it when you're selecting what you want, but - in terms of objective criteria for selecting the best lolly - you'll probably agree that there's little more important than how long it takes before it melts.
Because it's annoying as fuck, isn't it, when you're out in the sun, wanting to take your sweet time enjoying your ice-cream or lolly - only for it to melt and run down the stick and for you to get that horrible sticky stuff on your hands. That congealed mess that won't seem to come off no matter how much you rub your hands on your shorts.

Don't worry though, we've got your back here at LADbible, we're gonna stop that from happening. Last year, we ran our own scientific experiment to determine which ice-cream lasts the longest before melting.
Check out the video here...
As you can see Solero melted quickly as fuck.
That left a Twister, Feast and a Magnum remaining. Three much loved summer treats, three giants of the ice cream world, three very, very different ice lollies.
Ultimately, the Twister didn't stand a chance. It put up a good fight, but, in the end, it was doomed.
What was left was the two chocolate-based ice creams. It was the Feast vs the Magnum.

The thicker outer chocolate shell of the ever-reliable Magnum helped massively in the competition and, really, the flimsy Feast was never going to win.
So there you have it, the Magnum was the winner. And what a win it was.
