Aussies shocked to discover detail about Bubble O’Bill ice cream

KUPASONLINE.COM — The internet has spoken and it’s pretty clear that the Bubble O’ Bill is an Aussie icon we all grew up with and enjoyed devouring on a hot summer day – even if it was just to eat the bubble gum nose and let the rest drip down your arm while steering the BMX one-handed.

Ah, childhood!

But there is a little fact about the delicious sweet treat that has caught some fans by surprise, despite it being there all along.

Bubble O’ Bill fact that is blowing people’s minds

If you answered “Ah, DERR! No one knew this already?” then prepare to read on in rage because as it turns out, not many did!

Word of Bill’s hat detail began to circulate when a Queensland mum took to Facebook to ask if everyone else noticed the hole in the ice cream.

“How old were you when you discovered BUBBLE O’ BILL had a BULLET HOLE in his hat?” she asked.

While some did claim they knew and couldn’t believe no one else did, others were just as shocked as the mum who only discovered the truth in 2023.

“Today old and I’ve probably eaten 1,000 in 38 years,” one shocked fan responded.

“What! Have I been eating blindfolded for the past 50 odd years?” another astounded person commented.

Reading the comments, I personally couldn’t believe what I was seeing. How did no one notice this?

I mean, it literally spells it out on the Streets description of the ice cream: “Bubble O’ Bill is a classic blend of strawberry, chocolate and caramel ice confection, with a mega bubble gum nose, and a bullet hole through his hat.”

But sadly, I was alone. Kidspotters were also oblivious.

“I grew up eating Bubble O Bill’s like every other Aussie but I was today years old when I realised that poor Bill had been tragically shot in the head. Devo for him,” El shared.

“I definitely didn’t know about the Bubble O Bill hole, but that’s probably because we weren’t allowed to eat them,” Charlotte added.

And Leesa said: “I didn’t know either, but isn’t there a female cowgirl responsible for the wound?”

We can confirm that this rumour is indeed true and Bubble O’Jill, a spin-off of the popular treat released in 2020, is responsible for Bill’s bullet hole.

Bubble O’Jill, is the rootin’ tootin’ older sister to our old fave Bill. Legend has it, she’s responsible for the bullet hole in her brother’s hat – and in fact, she has a whole Wild, Wild West backstory of outlandish tales.

What those tales are exactly? Or why Jill shot actually her bro? We’re not sure, but we’re yet to see another Jill at the servo since 2020, so…

Forget the fact that some never knew there was a hole in the first place, many fans have taken to the internet to also express their outrage over the fact that there is a section that we’re paying for that doesn’t include ANY ice cream.

Yes, that teeny tiny hole is also causing a stir because it’s robbing us of more sweet stuff.

“The bullet hole in Bubble O Bill’s hat is a hole less ice cream. I’m #glasshalfempty when it comes to ice cream,” one person vented on Twitter.

“To be honest when I noticed the hole I felt annoyed that they could have filled it with ice cream,” another agreed on Facebook.

Who knew an ice cream could be so controversial, right?(*)
