      Lovely ice lollies, perfect for the summer.

      Through the summer, my grandson went mad on ice lollies and ice cream. I didn't want to keep giving him things that were bad for him, so I thought I'd try these as they say they're made from 83% orange juice, so he could have his favourite frozen treat and some vitamin C.

      For a box of four of these, you'll pay about £2.00 which is pricey compared to some of the other cheaper ones you can buy, but I guess it's still a lot cheaper than buying them from the ice cream man who would probably charge £1 each, and they're better for you so I still bought some.

      The box is silver and black and has one of the ice lollies on the front, and an orange. It looks quite fresh and inviting and the box looks quite classy with the colour choice.

      Each of the ice lollies are individually sealed in their own celophane which isn't too hard for the kids to open. They're bright orange and I must admit look really refreshing when it's warm.

      These lollies are undoubtedly very refreshing and taste delicious as they are sweet with a little bite to them that you would expect to find when eating an Orange. Imagine that you a drinking a glass of pure Orange juice (with juicy bits in it) then freeze it and hey presto: Tesco Finest Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice Ice Lollies.

      I don't normally eat ice lollies, but I thought I'd try one as they did look nice. They taste a little bit watery at first, like most ice lollies do, but after a while you can taste the zingy orange flavour and there are some little orange bits in it too which was nice. I can't bite ice lollies as I have sensitive teeth but my grandson was biting them quite easily, he got through his quicker than I got through mine! The ice lollies are really fresh and great for the summer as they do help to cool you down and they taste great. My grandson finished one and was asking for another soon after.

      Even though it's getting colder now, I still buy these as my grandson loves them. I feel better knowing that these are better for him than the normal cheaper ones you can buy and at £2.00 a box, they're not too expensive to enjoy. I'd definitely recommend giving these a try because they are really nice.

      Tesco Finest Orange Juice Ice Lollies

      If you have read one of my previous reviews, you will know that I have a craving for ice lollies at the moment. So looking for something a little more premium I purchased Tesco Finest Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice Ice Lollies. A box of 4 x 73ml ice lollies costs £2.05 and are the only ice lollies in the Tesco Finest range. You will find them in the usual Tesco Finest Black and Silver box.

      Each ice lolly is wrapped in clear plastic cellophane, the lollies are bright Orange (as expected) and each lolly contains 83% of freshly squeezed orange juice, contain 90 calories and 20.8g of sugar. The ice lollies are made from selected freshly squeezed, sun ripened oranges and each ice lolly contains the juice of one whole orange.

      These lollies are undoubtedly very refreshing and taste delicious as they are sweet with a little bite to them that you would expect to find when eating an Orange. Imagine that you a drinking a glass of pure Orange juice (with juicy bits in it) then freeze it and hey presto: Tesco Finest Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice Ice Lollies.

      At first I was taken aback by the lollies' texture. I was expecting them to be smooth, but they are full of bits, which you can feel in your mouth. I have never tasted a lolly like this before. Due to the Orange bits it has an almost powdery/flowery taste. When you initially suck the ice lolly it's quite watery then it changes to a flowery taste and you can see the Orange Juice bits on the top of the lolly. You may even find that they get stuck in between your teeth.

      Like freshly squeezed Orange juice, the lollies are sticky and gooey, however they remain frozen for quite a while, don't drip yet are easily bitten into.

      Overall, I recommend Tesco Finest Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice Ice Lollies and give them 5 stars. They are expensive at £2.04 for a box of 4 ice lollies, but they do contain 83% of freshly squeezed Orange Juice, are very refreshing and taste like the real thing. For me there are no disadvantages, however some people may not find the juicy bits appealing as you would normally expect a smooth texture for an ice lolly.
