Aldi are launching alcoholic ice lollies this summer and we want them immediately

If the sun decides to get its act together, this might actually turn into a decent summer.

We brought you the news that Argos have slashed the price of one of their hot tubs, meaning that for *not too much* money, you could have your very own four-person tub in your back garden, living the life of decadence for less than £300.

That's a fair bit of whack though, so maybe this intriguing development from Aldi is more your flavour: alcoholic popsicles.

Fans of Black Books may recall this scene with Bernard's famous wine lolly:

Well thanks to Aldi, you can make this fantasy (or a fantasy reasonably close to it) a reality.

They're launching two flavours of alcoholic popsicle: Gin & Tonic and Prosecco & Peach Bellini. If that isn't the taste of summer, we don't know what is.

The lollies have an ABV of 4.5%, which is more than enough to have a good time with. A pack of four lollies will cost £2.99, which is extremely reasonable when you consider that you could be getting a buzz on via an ice-cold treat.

Mind you, a pint of cold lager could cost you almost the same, but summer demands a pinch of novelty, doesn't it?
