hokey pokey is also type of confectionary made with golden syrup and baking soda. There is a commercial hokey pokey (covered in chocolate) bar made in New Zealand. It is also a flavour of ice cream in New Zealand that has reached the status of a cultural icon. See Kiwiana.
Hokey Pokey ice cream is basically vanilla, but with small chunks of toffee through it. Not real hokey pokey though, because that dissolves in the ice cream and goes really yuck (personal experience after trying to make 'home made' hokey pokey ice cream). Watch out if you have fillings in your teeth! This ice cream can mean expensive dentist's bills.
