POPS - Premium Ice Popsicles

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.

If you want to try your own adult-exclusive popsicle, buy yours here (Classic) and here (Bellini) for £4 each.

Stay Cool This Summer with Lollypop Men

lollypopmenblogimage As the days seem to get hotter one by one, we are realising that summer is officially upon us. Personally, I love having a glass of cold juice when it is warm out. And when the temperature is really rising, frozen snacks become a necessity. Luckily for me, The Kitchen Gift Company sent over the Lollypop Men Popsicle Sticks to enhance my snacking experience and 'cool off the girls' here at The Amazing Blog. Once they arrived, I couldn’t wait to fill them up and get them in the freezer. Before I could even sample my new creations, I knew I had found a summertime essential.


Each Lollypop Men set comes with four moulds allowing you to make some popsicles for yourself while also sharing them with your friends and family. Or, if you are like me, you’ll enjoy these delicious treats a little too much and simply have all four to yourself. I'm no chef, but I found these so easy to make that I was thinking up as many combinations as I could!  The possibilities truly are endless. You can be simple and strictly use juice or zest things up a bit with some fresh fruit slices. If you are craving a sweeter option, I recommend using chocolate milk or ice cream to make the perfect dessert.


In addition to the ease and simplicity of this fun utensil, Lollypop Men has also transformed the seemingly boring standard popsicle handle into fun caricatures. The package comes with four different animated figures that are sure to give your creations some life.  This factor really makes these into a fun summer party treat. Plus, they are re-useable, so you can make as many as you want.


Whether you are searching for a refreshing treat or looking for a new fun popsicle set for summer parties, the Lollypop Men Popsicle Stick Set is the perfect compliment to your summer days. For £8.00 you can purchase one of your own on the Kitchen Gift Company website and start cooling off with some home-made frozen delights.
