    I’ve loved Double Dips since I used to buy them with my pocket money from the local newsagent when I was a child. I think it’s the combination of the two different flavours of sherbert and the edible stick that makes them superior to all the others.

  2. andrea tinkler says:

    I still love these. Only trouble i eat the dipper first then have to use my fingers in the sherbet. Would be ok if i was about 4, but im 50!!!!!

  3. John Naylor says:

    My childhood memory of Double Dips was getting what you could up with the dipper and then open the packet and pouring the rest into my mouth at once. This led to coughing and sneezing fits quite often but was worth it!

  4. Nicole Edwards says:

    They’re some of the ultimate childhood retro sweets! Just the mere thought of them launches you back to your childhood where you remember buying them with your pocket money, tearing the top open and then making the quick excitable decision of which flavour to stick the Swizzelstick in first.

    Then of course there’s the running out of the stick and having to pour the rest of the sherbet into your mouth. It was perfection.

  5. SEAN DOWNER says:

    Theses are my fab sweets of all time.I do try and buy them once a week if I can find them. I suck the sweet then pour all of the sherbert into my mouth till all gone job done.

    Yummy and messy, great combination in the tuck shop days and now. Wow just thinking about it reminds me of those childhood days. Salivating at the minute,

    When I was little, getting a double dip was a real treat. My mum didn’t like me and my sister having sweets, so when we were out just with our dad he would buy us all a double dip. I think they were his favourite treat, it would be nice to give some back to him now.

  8. Jean Bolsover says:

    I like to get a big scoop of the sherbert on the lollipop and see if I can get it in my mouth before I breath on it or else the sherbert gets blown everywhere

  9. Lelia Valois says:

    Loved them since I was little. There’s just something so satisfying about covering the lolly in sherbert.

  10. julie horne says:

  17. lorraine says:

    i love double dips
    i keep doing flips
    you get two lovely flavors
    each one i like to savour
    then there’s the stick
    which you just have to lick!
    so in conclusion
    its no optical illusion
    double dips are are cool
    ‘cus i aint no fool.

  18. Ian Dowson says:

    Once the stick gets eaten through excitement, you begin the task of getting the flavour by extending your tongue into the packet first, which takes too long so you try licking your finger which is good for the first few, but then you start wiping it on yourself so you opt for option three which is to tip it back and wait for it to drop at a rate your not expecting into your mouth giving you a fun and lip smacking moment whilst you dance with it in your mouth before finally swallowing it with satisfaction!

  19. elaine stokes says:

    they remind me of my childhood and going to the sweet shop with my 10p pocket money and coming out with a big bag of sweets x x x x x

  20. clair downham says:

  21. kimmie alex says:

    Double Dips remind me of my late grandmother, when I was child, she used to come round and she’d bring us each one and so they became synonymous with her memory.

  22. eddie britton says:

    I love this sweet,
    It’s got a tang that you just cant beat,
    Used to get a pack for school,
    dipping in the back of the class, or in the hall,
    Really was some of my greatest memories as a kid,
    from a toddler to getting big,
    now i’ve seen this sweet, its brought the memories back,
    and I would love to bring that ‘fizz’ back.
    If i don’t win, ill still buy some for my son,
    and he will see double dip is number one!

  41. Donna Daugherty says:

    I’ve loved Double Dips since I used to buy them with my pocket money from the local shops when I was a child. I think it’s the combination of the two different flavours of sherbert and the edible stick that makes them not age at all. I still enjoy them today with my children and there children. Keep making them and never end,

  42. Liz ferguson says:

    I used to buy these when I was young. Then my sister always bought me some, along with ones for her kids, when I was not so young. Now I buy myself one along with ones for my kids. I wonder if my future grand kids will buy me a lickie, when I don’t have the teeth for anything else.

  43. claire davey says:

    I love Double Dips because the kids are at an age where they don’t really appreciate them as much as they should and so I get to finish them off when they give up with them 🙂
