Polly Waffle

The Polly Waffle is deceased,
waffle wafer tube
filled with marshmallow
and coated in chocolate,
mmm, crunch, aah
and we missed it.

Everyone loved
the Polly Waffle, but
no-one would buy
the Polly Waffle.
That time has been and gone.

If only the waffle
from the mouths of pollies
would also go the way of the Dodo.

Now that would be a
Lolly Gobble Bliss Bomb
to our ears!

    1. Thanks slpmartin – the Polly Waffle was around for decades (an Australian made product – we don’t have many Aussie made things left anymore – they look like a chocolate log) 🙂 I would have put up an image but the company Nestles might sue me 😉

    1. Yes, a few of us were discussing the charms of the name Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs on twitter – how the person that came up with the name was a genius and Selma thought they should be the Lolly Laureate 🙂 thanks Martin

    1. Yeah, the cracker jack looks a lot like our Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs – nothing like searching a box of cereal or stuff for the plastic trinket down the bottom (I used to do that with packets of cornflakes – cereal – when I was a kid – drove Mum up the wall, because the cereal would get everywhere.)

  1. Gone? But not forgotten, and Pavlovian responses still evoking now in verse. I never tasted one till now — in imagination and — poof! you say it’s no more?

    But I can almost taste it!! Well remembered in words at least.
