Forget limited edition Magnum and movie-themed ice-cream, Viennetta has always dominated Irish homes as the king of cold desserts.

Reserved for Sundays, after a family roast, the ice-cream was the highlight of a weekend and eased the pain of having to shovel away greens beforehand.

Now imagine if you could get Viennetta to go. Like any other classic creamy desert, Viennetta has always belonged on a stick.

Well it seems someone got there already and Viennetta on a stick already exists - just not in Ireland.

Over the past few months images of the ice-cream have been found online but originating from either China or Malta.

Australians created such uproar over not having it that after some public pressure Streets ice-cream confirmed plans to bring Viennetta on a stick to the continent.

The company which is responsible for selling the ice-cream in Australia is also encouraging fans of the ice-cream to create their own versions of an on-the-stick version.

A trip to Shanghai to try the real deal Viennetta on a stick is also up for grabs for those who send in their DIY creations.

No plans have been announced yet to bring the seemingly new dessert to Ireland but it appears Irish families are not the only ones with an attachment to the classic ice-cream.
