Lolly is short for lollypop (and now "My Boy Lollypop" is echoing away in the inner chambers of my mind). The basic lolly is frozen fruit-flavoured water held on a stick which was presumably inserted before freezing. You can lick your lolly or bite bits off according to taste. Can't say I've ever seen one like the one in the picture in the article.

Oh--now that you've said they are frozen, I recall seeing the term ice-lolly in some British book. That might be what we call popsicles. Are yours shaped like elongated, but solid of course, horseshoes?
The one in the picture is what we call a lollipop, or sucker.

Aside: is anyone else having an unusually difficult time typing, these last four days?

Damn it all, let Walls stick it to the Germans. They started it in the first place, didn't they?
