Iceland is selling retro sweet ice lollies including Fruit Salad and Black Jacks

The days are getting warmer and brighter, which means one thing – ice cream season is just around the corner.

High street retailer Iceland has brought out a new range of frozen goods which are bound to make sunny days more pleasant – even in lockdown. 

Taking inspiration from retro sweets, the supermarket has teamed up with confectionary company Barratt to turn some old-school favourites into ice lolly form.

Brand new frozen flavours include popular twisted marshmallow sweet Flumps, liquorice-heavy Black Jacks and raspberry and pineapple-flavoured Fruit Salad.

To top it off, they have also brought out Dib Dab-inspired lollies – which come with a sachet of sherbet – as well as a Wham ice cream tub.

The new nostalgic lollies will be available exclusively at Iceland, from Monday 20 April – both online and in store.

Both the Black Jack and Dib Dab lollies are priced at £2.50 for a pack of four, whereas the Fruit Salad ones cost slightly less at £2.20.

The Wham ice cream tub, on the other hand, comes in at £2.50, along with the Flump lollies – but they do come in a pack of six.

Sally Bennett, Iceland’s senior buyer for ice cream and dessert said: ‘We are really excited to exclusively launch the Barrett’s brand into our Ice Cream range this summer.

‘They are a welcome addition to differentiate the Iceland offer from the rest of the market and truly believe that the taste of the classic flavours of Fruit Salad and Black Jack will make our customers smile.’
