When you think of Australia you think of beaches, endless summers, cocktails as the sun goes down and beating the heat with delicious frozen treats.
Why then, do we have to miss out on these amazing icy poles flavoured with our favourite boozy beverages but our drizzly, Winter-bound UK brethren can grab them from Aldi?
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!
The frozen treat range that inspired our teenage tantrum is Gianni’s Alcohol Ice Popsicles.
The Gin & Tonic flavour, of course, caught our eye first, but they’re also available in Cosmopolitan for when you want to channel some frosty Sex and the City vibes, and Bucks Fizz – orange and Champagne flavour.
In Australia we’d re-label that last one as Mimosa, eat them all at 10am, and call it brunch.
The popsicles come in packaging that resembles a Calippo – and each has been infused with actual booze, making each popsicle about as strong as a low-alcohol beer.
And now a message for Aldi: Thank you for the litres of pink French wine. We know you can work magic for us again. It’s Autumn in Australia now so you have time ...
All we want for Christmas are gin and tonic icy poles.
Recovering caffeine-addict and serial bruncher Eliza Murray feels most at home typing away in a cozy cafe with her re-mortgaged avocado toast nearby. When she isn't reporting on the latest Instagram-shattering glittery food trends, she can be found experimenting with new gin garnishes (hello strawberries!) or biting into an entire wheel of brie (no shame).
