Boozy ice lollies
IN THE BEGINNING Premium ice-lolly brand Pops launched in the UK in 2014. Set up by two old school friends, the brand’s offering of Champagne popsicles became an instant hit on the food scene and in celebrity circles thanks to the retro packaging and considerable boozy hit. THEN Other artisan brands, including Lic, began to offer their own takes on alcoholic ice lollies, which were sold at Fortnum & Mason. Jude’s Ice Cream hopped on board the gin trend by launching a gin & tonic ice cream made with trendy Sipsmiths gin. MAINSTREAM In spring 2017, Aldi launched its own range of budget-friendly alcoholic ice lollies, complete with popsicle packaging. They’re available in gin & tonic and bellini flavours and measure in at a hefty 4.5% ABV.
