I Learn About Wet Dreams

Last night I was laughing at Master9’s response to the snippets of Sex Education Miss10 is bringing home from school. Tonight, I want to curl up in a fetal position and join him in a corner.

di - October 30, 2014 - 12:47 pm

I’ d be worried if I were u bruce. SOunds like you have a very confident young lady on your hands. It will get intetesting. Cant wait to read more.

Donna - October 30, 2014 - 8:03 pm

I’m really excited about the KIVA loan we’ve made this month. It’s one thing to help someone start or improve a business, but this week we’re helping families in Laos improve their water quality.

Why My Young Son Wants To Leave School

“Can I quit school?” Master9 asked his mother tonight.

Our boy loves school. He’s generally the first dressed and keen to get there in the morning. So this was a bit of a startling revelation

Haha great quick thinking from Tracey! Unfortunately I think Master 9 has inherited it! ;)

Teaching Kids To Play With Their Food

“Don’t play with your food,” is something I distinctly remember hearing my parents say to me when I was a child. Which is why I’m a little bit surprised by developments this week.

Kiara - October 23, 2014 - 8:48 am

I think I would like a sour apple flavour mmmm!

JenI - October 23, 2014 - 8:51 am

Big fans of Wizz Fizz here, but I’d never really thought of it coming in “flavours”. It’s sherbert flavour right? My kids do like the one that makes your teeth black. What fun! (errr…). And I hadn’t thought of it as icecream topping, but that could be on the menu tonight. Thanks for the tip! I guess if I have to pick a flavour I would go for something fruity like rasberry or lemon.

Bron - October 23, 2014 - 9:13 am

Turkish Delight of course.

Chloe mcbeath - October 23, 2014 - 9:38 am

I would love a mango flavour :)

Stacey barry - October 23, 2014 - 9:40 am

I’d like to have an orange flavour, like toc tacs but fizzy! Yum.

Alyssa - October 23, 2014 - 9:41 am

I think Mixed Berry flavour! Yum!

Andrew - October 23, 2014 - 10:39 am

BACON FLAVOUR!!! You can never have enough bacon. There’s bacon flavoured gumballs, chocolate bar, lollipops and ice-cream so why not Wizz Fizz.

Bee Bowdlert - October 23, 2014 - 11:20 am

I’d like a Fruit Salad flavoured Wizz Fizz.

Dianne Childs - October 23, 2014 - 11:27 am

Lemon Meringue Pie, because the sweetness of the sugary meringue would perfectly cut through the tangy, zestiness of the lemon, creating a fizzy, delicious taste sensation!

sapna - October 23, 2014 - 12:16 pm

I would love to see it in cherry flavour .

Rachel - October 23, 2014 - 12:39 pm

Peach flavour would have to be worth a try I think!!!

Tracey Young - October 23, 2014 - 5:47 pm

I think I’d like watermelon as it sounds sophisticated and adult, what I’m supposed to be now I’m 40! I still love my sherbet though so who cares what flavour as long as I can still buy it in multipacks.

Sharron Waeger - October 23, 2014 - 7:18 pm

I think I would Toffee Apple or sour Apple flavoured Fizz Wizz Yum yum

Ella - October 24, 2014 - 7:35 am

I love Wizz Fizz! After much debate our choice is mint choc flavour!

Lilmiss Coleyy - October 24, 2014 - 8:37 am

Savoury! Like tasty cheese. Or cheese and bacon. Or burger. I think the result would be surprisingly good.

Ainsley - October 24, 2014 - 9:44 am

We’d like to see a Cola Wizz Fizz! Love being able to share treats with my kids that I had as a kid & Wizz Fizz certainly falls into that category :)

Jocelyn R - October 24, 2014 - 4:13 pm

I’d love to see an ice-cream flavour. Sweet and tingly at the same time! A real twist on the original.

Justin Andrew Letchford - October 24, 2014 - 6:10 pm

Cola! Makes sense to do it since virtually every other candy/lollie has done cola and Wizz Fizz hasn’t!

Kiara R - October 24, 2014 - 6:18 pm

My Hubby loves Wizz Fizz and Spam… So a Spam flavored Wizz Fizz would probably fulfill his dreams. I on the other hand a Blueberry Wizz Fizz would be yummy!

Alice - October 24, 2014 - 6:27 pm

Chocolate, and why? Because chocolate!

Laura - October 24, 2014 - 6:30 pm

I’m drooling already…mmmm!!!

Laura - October 24, 2014 - 6:32 pm

I would like to see MINT sherbert because I love mint everything! Choc-mint thickshake, mint fudge….mmmmm

amanda - October 24, 2014 - 8:44 pm

Bugger the kids, it’d be for me :-)

amanda - October 24, 2014 - 8:46 pm

Oh, and strawberry flavoured. Anything strawberry flavoured is delish!

Caroline Beane - October 24, 2014 - 10:11 pm

Raspberry!! All raspberry confectionary is awesome :)

Fiona May - October 25, 2014 - 7:28 am

Id love choc mint flavour. mmm It would be so good. The mex of flavour with the sherbet effect would be just heaven.

Jess - October 25, 2014 - 9:02 am

I would love a grape flavoured wizzfizz… but I’m extremely keen to try bubble gum! ;-)

Jo - October 25, 2014 - 10:01 am

Naval orange…..like Raro, a powdered drink you get in NZ.

Jo - October 25, 2014 - 10:02 am

what about Apple?

Anonymous - October 25, 2014 - 11:24 am

Toffee apple flavour …because it brings back great memories of being a kid! :D

vi - October 25, 2014 - 11:32 am

I think just the usual flavour I tried another flavour a few months ago and it was not the same. So deifnately the regular flavour. Why change perfection

Julia - October 25, 2014 - 1:37 pm

marshmallow, maybe green apple. Mmmmm

Bianca Childs - October 25, 2014 - 3:17 pm

I think they should bring out a lemon and lime or orange flavour. Something about wizz fizz screams summer and what’s more summer-y then citrus?
Fizzy and fresh.

Bianca Jane Childs - October 25, 2014 - 3:19 pm

I think they should bring out a lemon and lime or orange flavour. Something about wizz fizz has always screamed summer and what’s more summer-y then citrus.
Fizzy and fresh.

Mel - October 25, 2014 - 4:52 pm

Blue raspberry. Wizz fizz has always been my favourite. It just needs to meet my favourite flavour.

Jennifer - October 25, 2014 - 6:33 pm

Strawberry!

Tegan Murray - October 26, 2014 - 2:17 pm

Sour Wizz Fizz! I think it would be a hit and sour things taste amazing on ice-cream!
Sour grape would be great!

Michelle - October 26, 2014 - 4:09 pm

I would love strawberries and cream … It’s my favorite lollypop and my favorite lolly ever!

Sarah Armstrong - October 27, 2014 - 9:57 am

They should make an adult sherbert like Midori – I’d stock up

Tess Fielding - October 27, 2014 - 10:50 am

I’m really excited to see the bubble gum flavour as anything BG flavoured has been my favourite :)

Sally W - October 27, 2014 - 6:02 pm

I’d like pineapple wizz fizz

Jenna - October 27, 2014 - 6:24 pm

Ohh what an awesome idea, will have to make some our own Oalfs soon. I reckon I’d love to see a passionfruit flavoured sherbet. Yummmmmy

Chloe Sams - October 27, 2014 - 7:37 pm

Something tropical or an adult only flavour like champagne and strawberry

Linda - October 27, 2014 - 11:34 pm

Love the idea of it on icecream. Will have to buy some and try it. Cheers.

Katrina - October 30, 2014 - 5:48 pm

I’d love to see a banana or strawberry flavour of whizz Fizz available in stores.

It really is such a great product! My niece recently had a bout of urinary tract infections and refused to drink the lemon flavoured ural the Dr prescribed – but we used whizz fix instead – So similar and easy for kids to relate to and enjoy whist helping with symptoms of a nasty infection at the same time!!!

rachel - October 30, 2014 - 5:48 pm

I think musk or banana lolly flavoured sherbet nom nom..

Kris - October 30, 2014 - 5:49 pm

Lemon :)

Kez - October 30, 2014 - 5:49 pm

Maybe cola flavoured? Though I think my kids would like strawberry or raspberry!

Kristy Louise - October 30, 2014 - 5:49 pm

fairy Floss… cause its yum

Sandra - October 30, 2014 - 5:50 pm

I loved the black mouth making wizz fizz they had in stores a few halloweens ago. My girls had a blast with it whilst enjoying the regular flavour of wizz fizz. I don’t want it flavoured, I love it the way it is! It was pretty cool to eat a pack and have a black mouth though. OK more than pretty cool, it was TOTES AWESOME! :-D

Tam - October 30, 2014 - 5:50 pm

Wonder what my miss / would think of wizz fizz. Haven’t let her try yet. Not sure the ensuing giggles would ever end. Might be time to try.

Cate - October 30, 2014 - 5:50 pm

I’m a fan of traditional flavours, but I think lemon lime whiz fizz would be pretty yum

Mum Of Five Girls - October 30, 2014 - 5:51 pm

everything tastes good if its chocolate flavoured…doesn’t it??!!

brooke - October 30, 2014 - 5:51 pm

I don’t mind what flavour, it’s all yummy! :)

Halie - October 30, 2014 - 5:52 pm

It would probably defeat the whole wizz fizz thing, but Chico flavour would be good… I’d settle for chicos dipped in wizz fizz too.

Beth Williams - October 30, 2014 - 5:52 pm

Mint flavour would be awesome!

Beryl - October 30, 2014 - 5:53 pm

the husband and eldest said chilli flavoured! Because in our house everything is chilli flavoured + bacon

Reenee Maree - October 30, 2014 - 5:54 pm

Grape or strawberry or a mixture

Beryl - October 30, 2014 - 5:54 pm

the husband and eldest said chilli flavoured! Because in our house everything is chilli flavoured + bacon

Julie - October 30, 2014 - 5:54 pm

Lemon flavour would be yum!

kate bult - October 30, 2014 - 5:55 pm

Blueberry wizz fizz sounds good… mmm yum

Tammy Bigham - October 30, 2014 - 5:55 pm

Ah Wizz Fizz!! I loved it as a child, and I love it still as an adult! Have certainly passed on the love to my children lol :)

But what flavor…. I’m a fruity fan, peach, watermelon or kiwi fruit I think would be awesome!!

peta - October 30, 2014 - 5:55 pm

I love wizz fizz. Remember the wizz fizz cough? Similar to the milo cough. You try and have a mouthful of sherbet and accidentally inhale a sceric, and do a close mouthed cough. Makes your nose fizz.

lisa service - October 30, 2014 - 5:58 pm

Wizz fizz is an old favorite in our household. My kidd would love sour grape..they love all those flavors that make you screw up your face!!!

Kaye - October 30, 2014 - 5:58 pm

I think lemon flavour would be awesome too.

carly - October 30, 2014 - 6:00 pm

I wllove wizz fizz… we would always have it on ice cream with milo… it was Granddads treat for me and my brother.

How about a chocolate flavour?

jess dennis - October 30, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Lemon Meringue Pie would be amazing :)

Sheryl - October 30, 2014 - 6:02 pm

Hey My grand daughter loves wizzfizz :)

Anonymous - October 30, 2014 - 6:03 pm

Salted caramel, just because it’s yummy!

Amy - October 30, 2014 - 6:03 pm

T

Amy - October 30, 2014 - 6:04 pm

Tutti fruitti! Everything tutti fruitti is yum!!! And it sounds good

Christina Cambridge Macpherson - October 30, 2014 - 6:15 pm

I was dreaming of wizz fizz only days ago, I remember many flavours in my dream…. But the one that stands out was Jaffa.
Mmmmmm wizz fizz will be on my shopping list this week for sure!

Hannah Nix - October 30, 2014 - 6:16 pm

Cherry , maybe even Sour Cherry would be awesome!

nicole - October 30, 2014 - 6:25 pm

both my girls have said sour grape!!

Lisa - October 30, 2014 - 6:26 pm

Id like to try a chocolate milkshake flavour please!

Karla Oleinikoff - October 30, 2014 - 6:33 pm

Raspberry and apple. It’s fruit, so it’s good for ya!

Ali - October 30, 2014 - 6:45 pm

Lime! Limes make everything good ^_^

My kids adore wizz fizz :P but not half so much as I do lol

Debbie - October 30, 2014 - 6:57 pm

I’d like to see an apple or grape flavoured wizz fizz. I haven’t had that stuff since I was a kid might have to buy some and try it on my icecream

Jen McLellan - October 30, 2014 - 7:12 pm

Chocolate. Everything is better with chocolate

Liddea Richardson - October 30, 2014 - 7:13 pm

Id like to see a fairy floss sherbet.

Olivia - October 30, 2014 - 7:20 pm

Banana flavoured wizz fizz! After all, it’s pretty much all my babies will eat when they’re teething or moody, which is most of the time. At least I could white lie it to them and say I’m having a ‘banana’ too.

catherine - October 30, 2014 - 7:24 pm

Definitely in Strawberry flavour…yummy

jo - October 30, 2014 - 7:26 pm

watermelon, Jaffa, cinnamon, blueberry, Apple pie, berry bliss, vanilla/ice cream, creamy soda, coconut, cherry ripe- can’t stop at one flavour! Lots of great ideas on here

janna c - October 30, 2014 - 7:33 pm

Strawberry and Cream
Sounds good!!

Kaitlyn Anderson - October 30, 2014 - 7:43 pm

Anything sour should be awesome

Kaitlyn - October 30, 2014 - 7:46 pm

Anything sour would be amazing

Amy Corbet - October 30, 2014 - 8:09 pm

I think fairy floss as it could be a great combo. Or macadamia….

Peta - October 30, 2014 - 8:12 pm

I think rasberry would be a good flavour.

bronya - October 30, 2014 - 8:16 pm

LeMon!!! Everything lemon is yummy!!

Jessica Nyers-Saunders - October 30, 2014 - 8:24 pm

My kids are all about watermelon at the moment so im pretty watermelon whizz fizz would be a big hit at our place.

Anonymous - October 30, 2014 - 8:25 pm

CaraMe

emma - October 30, 2014 - 8:27 pm

Caramel macadamia

Anonymous - October 30, 2014 - 8:57 pm

Any flavour……. All sherbet is amazing!

Jess - October 31, 2014 - 10:53 am

Did I win?? ;-)
