Ice cream spiders

Post by greeneyed »

Just watching BBL... the cricket... don't get me started!

But just saw an ad for a certain fast food outlet offering spiders!

Those are surely the best ever invention! I remember getting them down the Gold Coast when I was a kid at Greenmount. Perfect summer drink.

For those who don't know what they are... a scoop of ice cream... drowned in your favourite soft drink in a glass. Lime spiders, of course, were the best.

I remember a 7up spider in Singapore as a kid. Was fantastic.

I can remember as a kid buying a bottle of milk for 40c. I'd drink the neck out of it and this little old lady would add our favourite flavouring for 2c extra.

Excellent during the hot summer days..

Yeah I never liked them either.
There is a certain fast food chain that does the best thick shakes. I’m lovin’ them!

Hey GE, I stayed at Greenmount when I was a nipper too. Can't say I recall the spiders but I do recall the jukebox on the stairs. I absolutely hammered Ernie's "Rubber Duckie" (I was maybe six) until a posse was formed to make me stop.

Hah! The other great thing about Greenmount was the snow cones. I guess they're called slushies these days.
