British Lolly Shop

It's not a Lolly shop - it's a bloody Sweet shop

It's not a Lolly shop - it's a bloody Sweet shop

What the HELL is this?! British ‘LOLLY’ shop – how dare they? They are not ‘lollies’ – they are SWEETS – IT’S A SWEET SHOP, NOT A BLOODY LOLLY SHOP. Lollies come on sticks – how hard is that?

Fair enough having ‘Lolly’ shops I suppose – if that’s what you want to call them. But BRITISH LOLLY SHOP?! Pommies everywhere are turning in their graves…

Whatever next…

NB: Australian’s call Sweets ‘Lollies’

    Had exactly the same thoughts too, it’s a bloody sweet shop none of this chips knickers and pants either..it’s crisps! There are a few ‘British Shops’ in Sydney, I use http://www.gawblimey.com for my food fix, bonus with these guys is that the bloke that owns it is called James Cooke (oh how I laughed) and they provide newsfeed direct from London.
