MARKS and Spencer is selling giant scoops of ice cream ‘perfect for Christmas cocktails’ – but shoppers are divided.
M&S fans have been keen to try the retailer’s new slow-melting giant scoops of ice cream in their celebratory drinks.
A bag of six scoops of ice cream will set you back £3 – dividing some people on social media.
Shoppers were quick to comment on a picture of the ice cream scoops that NewFoodUK posted on Instagram.
One person said: “Cost of living crisis and you’re selling ice cream balls for £3!”
While another wrote: “Ah yeah let me go and spend £3 on some frozen water – that seems like a brilliant idea.”
And a third added: “A ridiculous price for some frozen water.”
But others think the ice cream scoops are the perfect Christmas cocktail.
One shopper said, “You look so good!”
Another M&S commented: “Got to get these for Christmas and New Years.”
You can find the M&S tour closest to you by using the locator tool on the website.
The ice cream balls are only available in store and cannot be purchased online through Ocado.
The Sun couldn’t find any other giant balls of ice cream like this at M&S, but you could try using a mold instead.
Amazon sells a single giant ice ball mold for £6.99 and Dunelm sells a tray of six molds for £6.
While these are a bit more expensive than buying a bag from M&S, it might be worth spending a little more as the mold is reusable.
So if you think you can put them to good use, consider investing.
Always keep an eye out for better deals we may have missed – there’s never a bad time to snap up a bargain.
As we get closer to the big day, prices could drop and stores could start clearing their stocks.
It’s always worth comparing prices so you know you’re getting the best deal.
Prices can also vary from day to day depending on what deals are available at the moment and remember that if you order online you may be paying for delivery.
You can compare prices on sites like Google Shopping.
In the meantime, Home Bargains has a few other popular Christmas items, including this cardboard gift sled.
Also, some retailers have already started early Boxing Day sales with up to 70% off.
