Hard Selzer is fast becoming the must-have summer drink. Small wonder, then, that people have figured out it’s also delicious if you freeze it.

Available in a retro, tie-dye pack, these treats come in three separate varieties – cherry limeade, blue raspberry and summer ice. The new Selzer articles will be available for a limited time only from June 14th. If you’re eager to upgrade your Selzer, look no further.

2. Pops Ice Lollies

Pimms might just be the quintessential British summer beverage. What better way to celebrate the return of the sun, therefore, than a frozen Pimms ice lolly?

Pops treats come in four separate flavours, including Gordon’s gin and Vodka and Watermelon Martini. However, for our money, the 4.3% Pimms treat is the real highlight.

3. Naturdays Icicles
