War Rationing - Carrots on a Stick
War rationing was just a way of life during World War Two. One of the luxuries to hit the rationing list was sugar and with no sugar, there was no ice cream. But the official wartime substitute for ice-cream was a carrot on a stick. Many British children born just before the war didn’t discover what ice-cream actually was until the war was over and the rationing stopped.
