Everyone loves ice-cream to beat the heat but the only trouble with them is that they can melt quickly when temperatures soar. Everyone who craves ice-candies in summer must’ve wished at some point that they could enjoy it them for a long time without melting.

Now culinary specialists Bompas and Parr have come up with an ice-lolly that can last for hours more than conventional popsicles in the same temperature. The inspiration behind this is a frozen material made with sawdust and wood pulp in ice that was meant to build an iceberg for a floating runway during World War Two.

The duo replaced sawdust and wood pulp with edible fruit fibres and the result can be called a dream come true for ice-lolly lovers. They are currently working on developing a product for supermarkets and it may be available soon.

The delightful invention will be showcased as part of a food exhibition to be held in London in September.
