UP TO YOU: How will you make this classic lolly even better?

CONFECTIONERY king Allen's is at it again, handing over control to the public to choose which new lolly we want on the shelves.

This time the sweet expert has come up with three new twists on the classic fruit and cream combo, with consumers to vote whether they want apple and cream, blackberry and cream, or the unusual yuzu and cream, based on the trendy Japanese citrus fruit popular on restaurant menus.

"One thing we've definitely learnt is that people really, really love their fruit cream lollies ... so we thought, 'How about we give them a new twist?," Allen's spokeswoman Margaret Stuart said.

"We know that people feel really strongly about their lollies, so it's great to actually give them an opportunity to say what they want rather than for us to just put it out."

The annual Allen's vote follows last year's search for a remixed classic, which saw choc and cream come out on top, while in 2016 peaches and cream won fans' hearts and proved so popular its limited edition run was extended indefinitely.

This time lolly lovers will have only one week to vote for their new favourite flavour, with the poll now open online at allenslollies.com.au/vote. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, January 23, with the winning flavour available at Woolworths from mid-February.
