We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Trademark pending.)
Three local guys with a love for wine and popsicles decided to try fusing the two into frozen alcoholic treats. So, they got a bunch of vino, fresh fruit and an industrial-sized freezer, and invented SocialIce Winesicles.
We instructed our black ops day-drinking unit (code name: Afternoon Delight) to obtain samples through any means necessary. In this case, that meant a trip to 303 Bar & Grill for cocktails... er, ice pops. Intense negotiations ensued, but they managed to secure two popsicles the hard way: they asked politely.
The flavors: Mimosa Orange and Sangria Grape. The packaging: lackluster. Think Ziploc bags with logos. But we didn’t come here to judge a book by its cover. We came here to eat wine. And possibly get brain freeze.
Pretty darn good. The Mimosa Orange tastes surprisingly authentic. And the Sangria Grape: grape juice. But with 5% ABV.
Which is 100% more than anything Blue Bell makes.
