Ad authority says ice cream doesn't make you happy

From The Panel, 4:45 pm on 8 November 2019

The Advertising Standards Authority has ordered the removal of an ad on a dairy in Whangarei which displayed Streets ice creams - paddle pop, Magnum and Splice - with the tagline "Ice cream makes you happy".

The removal came after a local resident complained that the ad was "extremely irresponsible" given our current issues of obesity and mental health in New Zealand.
