The world's first Champagne Ice Lolly has hit the stands in the UK. Shaped like a Calippo, Pops Classic costs a pricy £5 each and are made up of 37% Champagne, equivalent to half a unit of alcohol. Each lolly however, has just 100 calories, which has made them a hit with celebrities, from Kate Moss and Miley Cyrus, to girl band The Saturdays. Designers James Rae and Harry Clarke came up with the idea for Pops Classic while on holiday last summer. “We were in Majorca attending a lot of the day parties and spotted a gap in the market for an alcoholic product that was more refreshing than a drink and could keep you cool,” clever stuff!
