Peters Smurfee Ice Creams

Licensed Australian Ice-Creams

Smack bang in the middle of the golden age of Aussie Ice Creams came the double barreled inventively titled Smurfee, courtesy of Peters / Pauls. This is the store display / advertising card from the 18c treat from 1979.
I’ve heard that there are no naturally occurring blue foods, and that blue is colour most likely to nauseate, but I’ve got to tell you that I can remember the taste of these things like it was yesterday, and that taste was good.
I’ll resist from all the standard Smurf jokes regarding Smurfette’s position as the only lass in the village, but when you look at the Smurf on the right and read the speech bubbles you just know something unnatural was going on in that forest…

  1. These were one of my favourites. I loved any ice creams that you could break into two. I remember the blue was a bit like the blue heaven flavoured milkshakes.

    Geez, we never thought about artificial or natural back then – even the white was probably artificial!
