The TV series MASH was a huge smash in Australia in the 70’s and 80’s, and so it was surprising but not totally unexpected that a licensed ice cream would be produced. Paul’s Australia had the honour, and below is an example of the wrapper for the individual icy pole.
This is the take-home box released by Streets Ice Cream in 1980 for the film Flash Gordon starring Sam Jones. Wonderful original graphics, plus the ice creams were delicious! I’m looking for a wrapper or sign from this release if you know of one.
These Flintstones icy poles from Streets Ice Cream Australia are from the late 70’s or early 80’s, and the box includes a great cutout Flintstones car on the rear. I’d love to add a wrapper or sign from this release, contact me if you have one or if you know exactly when these were available.
This is the He-Man wrapper from the Streets Australia ice cream / ice treats from 1985. I assume there was a Skeletor wrapper too, if anyone has one (or a picture of one) I’d love to add it here.
Only the most popular fads received the coveted licensed ice cream treatment in Australia, so it’s a testament to the legendary Taito Space Invaders video game to see this Milk Bar advertising sign from the early 80’s.

Great example of late 1970’s / early 1980’s Milk Bar ad design for Streets Paddle Pop ice cream, featuring the new Bubble Gum flavour!
