We’re told they’re still around – Sunnyboy frozen treats in Razz (raspberry); Glug (cola) and Zap (lime) flavours.
But we bet they’re just not the same. And even if they are, bet no-one’s got one at the bus stop.
How did you attack your Sunnboy?
(That pyramid of pure frozen delight for the rather affordable price of 40 cents.)
Did you suck out all the flavor until you were left with a lump of , tasteless pale ice?
Crunch it all the way down so the flavour lasted till the very end?
Bash it on the brick wall of the school canteen till it was mushy and then slurp?
And, did you wait until you’d finished to drink the divine cold, syrupy concentrated drink in the bottom, or sip it as you went?
The Sunnyboy was as individual as we were.
We just loved those pyramid-shaped tetra pak delights.
A Slushie’s not half as much fun.
You can gnaw on a Slushie for a good 15 minutes.
Hey! Did you ever win a free Sunnyboy?
You peeled back the silver foil and, if we remember, there was writing printed inside … really faintly… so if you weren’t careful you could chuck out the chance to experience another FREE ice block headache on a boiling summer afternoon.
Ahh, the Sunnboy. Miss you.
(Our favourite was a Razz. It made your puffy, frozen lips go red… just like real lippie!)
