New ways with an old cold treat



Lucky Pops
Glorious cool


Before ice creams were dipped in double chocolate (do we really need them) and expensive cones were slopped with bulbous blobs of ice-cream, there was the humble icy pole.

Summer meant going to the freezer and prizing one out of its mould and then slurping it up before it trickled down your wrists. Cold, gorgeous bliss!



Now these childhood summer days are back with adult flavours and a gourmet twist.

Michelle Luckman, who during the year hides away as a high school teacher, creates Lucky Pops Ice Delights during the summer break.

It is then that she lets her true flavours shine through.

How about pineapple and chilli, apple and cinnamon, and balsamic strawberry with cracked pepper. Or a personal favourite of avocado and lime? Or perhaps strawberry, basil and cracked pepper poles. Or for a really hot day, how about watermelon and mint?





Michelle only uses fresh fruit, spices and herbs (with no additives or preservatives) to craft her icy creations that cool you down and much of the produce is sourced from her uncle, who works as a market farmer.

She is one of the new concept food trucks, or in this case push carts, and she might just pop up anywhere in Melbourne when the temperatures soar and people need cooling down.

Her exact whereabouts is posted on Facebook and Twitter that day.

I love icy poles on a hot day. They are heaps more refreshing than ice cream.
