Gin & tonic ice lollies have landed in stores at Aldi, and we couldn’t be happier about the situation….

First there were those infamous Jo Malone style candles, then the super affordable outdoor hot tub. And now Aldi have only gone and done it again with the alcoholic ice lollies set to transform our summer BBQs.

Treat yourself to a choice of two boozy flavours – zingy gin & tonic, or sweet prosecco & peach. Tasty, refreshing and, ahem, alcoholic , they’re the perfect addition to warm summer’s night.

We might not be able to rely on the British weather, but these lollies are certain to be a crowd pleaser… whatever the weather!

This isn’t the first time novelty ice lollies have hit stores. Fortnum and Mason also offer a range of G&T popsicals at a rather hefty £50 for a ten pack. Whereas Aldi’s are just £2.99 for a pack of four – total bargain!

And, at 4-5%, its nice to see Aldi are rather generous with the gin in these boozy treats.

You can get your hands on the frozen alcoholic treats in Aldi stores nationwide now! 


And while we’re on the subject of boozy popsicals, these champagne ice lollies are certainly worth a mention. Pops Ice Popsicals originated in Australia, but they’re now available in the UK at your local supermarket… Waitrose are stocking the popular ice lollies, and Classic Champagne has to be our favourite flavour. You can find out more and order them here.
