I made Haribo Ice-lollies!
The yellow one is just sprite because I tried one … in the name of research, the evening before.
I saw these on one of those Twitter accounts that dedicate themselves to sharing really exciting food, and so decided to replicate them.
They’re the simplest ice lolly ever, and you only need Sprite and Haribo’s to make them. Be warned though, frozen gelatine sweets taste really odd and are surprisingly tough when you bite into them.
The ones I saw on Twitter were really clear, they used gummy bears and you could see each individual sweet really clearly. I was a little surprised when these came out cloudy, and so looked back at the original photo:
As you can see from the different shaped popsicle sticks and colour of the sweets, the end product is different to the first two photos. It looks like the end photo has used some other kind of liquid and not Sprite, which is why mine aren’t as clear as it looked like they should have been.
I thought they would come out really bright so was only disappointed by the opaqueness of the lolly, but other than that, they were the perfect tasty treat to relieve the heat of a warm sunny day.
