Tesco have brought out quite a few original offerings so far this year. And, here is one of them called 'Popping Candy Lollies'.
I wouldn’t have bought these for myself, but thought they'd probably go down well with the kids. So, although I knew they were likely to be full ‘o sugar, I went and bought them since they only had 75 calories each.
They’re described as:
‘Vanilla flavoured ice cream with bubblegum flavour sugar pieces coated with a strawberry flavoured fondant and popping candy.’
While not as quite as forceful as the stuff you can buy in shops, the tiny pieces in the lolly coating provide enough of a popping sensation to make it enjoyable for children. My youngest (6) found it great fun and insisted we listen to the popping sounds coming from her mouth.
I expect I’ll be buying these again. Hopefully the price won’t go too high after the current offer expires.
Popping Candy Lollies are available in Tesco stores and each box contains 6 x 40ml lollies.
