There is something so nostalgic about a popsicle; childhood memories come flooding back of those summer days running to the ice cream van, pennies in hand. Here at The Amazing Blog we've been revisiting those cherished childhood moments, but with a twist. POPS have created adult only Premium Ice Popsicles using Champagne. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?
We had the opportunity to try out their Classic, and Prosecco & Peach Bellini flavours, as well as the Apple & Elderflower from the non-alcoholic range. POPS have certainly brought some childhood enthusiasm back to our offices. Come lunch time, we were running to the freezer with the same excitement we once had when we heard the ice cream van passing. The packaging is bright, fun, and fitting to each lolly; yellow and pink champagne glasses are printed on the Classic and Bellini pops, whereas the Apple & Elderflower is aptly decorated with a background of green apples.
The creators of the 'world's first Champagne Ice Popsicle' have caught the eye of poparazzi like Miley Cyrus, Kate Moss, Gordon Ramsey (who is notoriously difficult to please) and Jack Whitehall. Their rising popularity has seen them visit various events, including Glastonbury Festival, Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Royal Henley Regatta. We loved the freshness of the natural ingredients. The Classic contains 37% real champagne, and tasted just as though we were drinking a glass of cold, crisp bubbly, just what we needed after a long day at work. What’s more, they are all under 100 calories! A truly guilt free treat, just what we love. Although it should be noted that, with a 4.3% ABV, these alcoholic pops really are only suitable for adults, no matter how much childish glee they inspire.
