Police have warned consumers not to drive after enjoying alcoholic ice lollies, raising concerns about their growing popularity.
A number of retailers sell the frozen, alcoholic treats, but they hit headlines after Aldi launched packs of four for just £2.99.
Acting Inspector Harry Simpson, from the Cleveland and Durham Operations Unit, told The Telegraph: “These lollies are becoming really popular and it’s easy to forget that they contain alcohol and aren’t just flavouring.
“On a hot summer’s day it is easy to lose count of how many you have and then get behind the wheel of a car.
“If you wouldn’t consider drinking a gin and tonic or cocktail when driving, then you shouldn’t consider having one of these lollies.”
The Aldi lollies come in gin and tonic and peach bellini flavour, at 4.5% ABV.
The lollies are strictly available for customers aged 18 years and over.
An Aldi spokesperson told HuffPost UK: “The alcohol content of these products is clearly labelled on the product packaging to help our customers to make informed choices about the alcohol products they buy.”
