Random Thought - Ice Magic

My childhood back in the 80s was peppered with long-forgotten foodstuffs such as Pacers, Top Deck and Smith's Salt n Shake.

Today I had a random flashback about Ice Magic. This amazing chocolate sauce turned hard when poured over ice cream (hence the 'magical' properties - although surely that's just boring old physics at work).

It was a veritable treat back in the day, but can be easily achieved in modern 21st century life by simply melting chocolate in the microwave and pouring over your favourite frozen dessert (we did this today, in fact!). Of course, that's not as 'magical', is it?

I wonder about how many thousands of those curious plastic Ice Magic bottles are hidden deep under a quarter century's worth of landfill?

Crazy crazy times...

For those of you who read my blog from time to time, you might have noticed that I have been absent in the blogosphere lately.

The two main reasons are moving house and being stupidly crazy at work. The timing for both of these could not have been better *sarcasm*...

Anyway, I am determined to get back into the swing of things once life has returned to some semblance of normality.

In the meantime, here's an amusing link you might enjoy:
