The Unsolicited Lick (and other icecream crimes)


This post is sponsored by Nuffnang

There are a few sadly under-reported crimes that are threatening the moral fibre of our nation this summer. Ice cream related crimes are on the increase now that Australians collectively spend more than $12.5million on ice cream each week during the warmer months.

According to research commissioned by ice cream connoisseurs Baskin-Robbins, and wholeheartedly supported by yours truly, the biggest ice cream crime is the Unsolicited Lick. Dun dun duuuun!

I'm of the belief that sharing an icecream is akin to full on tongue pashing and therefore should only be attempted on the icecreams of people you're willing to share a toothbrush with and only with express permission. For the record, I'm unwilling to share a toothbrush or icecream with anyone. Not Map Guy, not Tricky, no one. This household is a strictly one person per icecream venue, thankyouverymuch.

If you'd like to be escorted off the premises at Casa de Glow, ask for a lick of my choc chip cookie dough in a waffle cone. Go the Unsolicited Lick and you'll also score yourself a lifetime ban.

Apparently I'm not alone in my deep no-icecream-sharing beliefs; one third of men and one in five women agree with me. To the two thirds of men and four fifths of women who don't... EWWWWWWWW!



Recently Map Guy, The Engineer, The Events Coordinator (aka my brother in law and his new fiancee) and I took Tricky to Baskin-Robbins in Fremantle. After surveying the store and declaring he wanted the "pink favour" we all sat down on the wharf and enjoyed our icecreams in the sunshine. AND DID NOT SHARE. Bliss.

  1. I would love an unsolicited lick from Dave Grohl ... You know? The lead singer of Foo Fighters... Drummer for Nirvana... Drummer for Queens of the Stone Age... He's just a great guy and I think I would only cope if it were him. Definantly anything berry flavored!

    Off to listen to Foo now... Hehe xo Steph

  2. The ultimate faux pas in Casa de Cooker would be NOT
    sharing (we're lickers)! I’d give Mel Gibson my whole
    icecream – he scares me.

  3. I wouldn't mind a cheeky unsolicited lick from George Clooney or Johnny Depp dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow.

  4. I would be more likely to pash or share my toothbrush with a person than to share my icecream. Icecream is my favourite food did you know? I crack the shits if someone even tries to take some from my 4L tub. True story.

    Ultimate ice cream faux pas is going to the movies with a choc top and coming out with chocolate and ice cream all down your top. My husband did this (at Gold class) and he had no idea until we left the cinema!

  6. The ultimate ice cream eating faux pas happens several times a week at our place. Master five has discovered Ice Magic and has a ritual of coating every surface of the ice cream with a hard chocolate shell. The ice cream has half melted by the time the topping has set.

    I'd love a cheeky solicited lick from Craig Nicholls from The Vines. He's yummy like icecream. I smother mine in Ice Magic.

  14. Growing up as a child I always had dad, my brothers, or even my grandma sneaking the old 'unsolicited lick' of my ice cream. And I'll tell you, there is nothing worse. It's like, someone stole Christmas, Easter and your birthday with that one little lick. A celebrity, however, is a different scoop of icecream altogether. And if I had to, I would choose Keith Urban, mainly because he's sexy, and I wouldn't mind sharing an ice cream (or two) with him.

  15. Love Potion #31 !!!! I have been ragged on by my mates for liking it but I'll be damned if it's not the best tasting Ice Cream I have ever had!

  16. Basically, any intervention into the activity between a
    consenting consumer and consenting icecream is unacceptable and the ultimate
    faux pas.

  17. Hilarious post! I quite enjoyed the read. =) I entered the competition on facebook but I'm not entirely if my entry went through... When I submitted it a blank white page came up with no confirmation or anything. Is there any way I can find out if it actually went through? Thanks by the way.

  22. Fairy floss so wicked and sweet but so yummy to eat. Love the mango sorbet in summer... two large scoops in a cup. But can't top the help full staff who saved me when trying to top my 2 year olds with a buzz light year cake topper x

  25. I love Peanut Butter Chocolate; delicious and rich classic chocolate ice cream with thick ribbons of crunchy peanut butter. Seriously nothing tops this flavour! Once you go peanut butter chocolate, you will never eat anything else!
