@tsarstepan,
too much hair on the guy on the left. When someone sticks its head behind the Baine Marie to scoop out some ice cream. I wante neither hairs nor "head dross" exposed to the tub. Guy on right is properly accoutred

A few weeks ago a young lady from America came to stay for a few days. I live just around the corner from a busy high street with two ice cream parlours and she made sure she visited the nearest one every day.

She didn't have a cone when we went on a day trip to Cheddar because she was going to the parlour when we got back. I did have a cone, Turkish Delight (rose) flavour that they don't do at the parlour, very nice indeed.

This is the ice cream shop in Cheddar.

And this is the one just around the corner.

@izzythepush,
Its been years since I have been over to London, (pre-kids) - I just remember we ate alot of these - are they still popular? We don't have flake in the US (unless I go to a UK store).

@Linkat,
When I was in England for the first time in 1963, I liked the 99 Flake.
Until I noticed, you could get decent icecream as well.

@Walter Hinteler,
Yeah but we were in our early 20s with little money. We ate anything that didn't cost much and we could stomach. 99 Flake ice cream was cheap and filled us up.

I was just 14, and could spent about £7 "pocket money" per week (my parents gave me four traveller checks of 100 Deutsche Mark each for the four weeks I'd stayed there).

It was our money and we were of the partying age so we wanted to spend what little we had on booze not food - we found it tons of fun to be able to drink a beer on the tube. We stayed at places that were cheap and included "breakfast" - I remember getting such things as eggs and spaghetti Os; eggs and beans; really bad stuff - but we tried to fill up on it so we wouldn't have to buy other food until much later except maybe getting a 99 flake to hold us over or some other cheap crap.

Fun times

@Linkat,
I spent most of my money all those years between 1963 and 1968 going to concerts (in Bournemouth and in the London 100 Club) And I got cheap and mostly free drinks (invited) in the Labour & Social Club.

@Linkat,
They are still a staple of every ice cream van. They're not allowed to call it a 99 unless it's a Cadbury's flake.

Just noticed, if you look at the first picture I posted at Cheddar the model ice cream at the front of the shop is a 99 with the flake behind the rest of the cone.
