UK’s first ever real fruit ice lolly launched

A unique watermelon ice lolly is being launched as a healthy alternative summer treat.

And the thirst-quenching ‘real fruit on a stick’ lolly has just gone on sale exclusively in Tesco stores across the UK in time for the heatwave.

It’s believed to be the first time that a 100 per cent fruit lolly treat has been sold on British high streets.

Tesco Produce buying manager David Daniels said:
“Iced watermelon is the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer’s day.

“These thirst-quenching frozen lollies, made from a real piece of fruit, are a delicious and healthy alternative to a sweet treat for all the family.”

The watermelon lollies will be sold in a pack of four for £2 and will be available in more than 500 Tesco stores across the country.

Meanwhile with the hot weather returning this week shoppers have been stocking up for what is set to be a week of al fresco dining.
