Prosecco flavoured Dib Dabs are now a thing and we're stocking up

It's a yes from us


It's a yes from us

Valentine's Day is upon us, and with it we've got the fancy M&S meal deal, Krispy Kreme Valentine's Day doughnuts and an extra special Ben & Jerry's Valentine's flavour. And the best part is that all of these things can be enjoyed by the couples and the singletons alike.

But what do you do if you are loved-up and want to buy something special for your SO without going down the flowers and cuddly toys route? We have a suggestion.

One of your favourite childhood sweets has been given a grown-up twist - and we're all for it.

Remember the good, old fashioned Dib Dab? The sachet of sherbet which can be eaten with a lollipop was a winner in the playground. While we're still partial to one (they're literally 30p worth of joy), there's actually a more adult version on the market now. Enter Prosecco sherbert, complete with a dipping lolly.

Confectionary masters Smith and Sinclair have created this utter dream, and the most interesting part is that it's legitimately boozy.

The Double Dipper comes with not one but two lollipops, making it the perfect sharing sweet, and includes raspberry-flavoured sherbet. It also comes with a peach bellini gel that contains 10% alcohol, and Smith and Sinclair suggest using a drop of the gel before dipping the lolly in the sherbert for the ultimate fizzy experience.

They announced on Instagram: 'Back by popular demand! Our Dipper has undergone a major facelift and is now THE DOUBLE DIPPER, made for sharing.

'You dip, they dip. You both suck. Two Prosecco lollipops, Raspberry Sherbet and Peach Bellini Gel (that's actually 10% alcohol.) Let the double dippin' commence.'

As it contains alcohol, you must be over 18 to purchase a packet of the fizzy treat, which comes in at £9 a pouch.

If you want to get hold of a packet, you can buy them online - at Smith and Sinclair, Not On The High Street, Amazon and Yumbles - or in John Lewis and Harvey Nichols stores.

We're sold.
