Lidl is selling ice cream that tastes of champagne and red velvet cake for Valentine’s Day

IF you’ve got a taste for the finer things in life you might want to head down to Lidl where it’s selling ice cream flavoured with champagne and red velvet cake.

The two new taste sensations have been added to the menu at Lidl just in time for Valentine’s Day – they say food is the way to someone’s heart, after all.

Marc de Champagne is used to flavour the chocolate ice cream, which is made with British double cream and whole milk.

It’s then swirled with chocolate sauce and chunks of Belgian milk chocolate truffle pieces.

When it comes to the red velvet version, vanilla ice cream is swirled with red velvet cake flavoured sauce, creating a red and white marble effect.

The 480ml tubs both cost £2.49 and can be found in store only from February 6 – but they’re only available while stocks last so you might want to go quick.

Ice cream manufacturer Halo Top does make a red velvet flavoured ice cream but we couldn’t see it being stocked at any of the major online retailers.

For those who prefer bubbly, we couldn’t find any other champagne flavoured ice cream being sold elsewhere.

But you can get three 80ml Bellini Prosecco ice pops in a box from Ocado for a costlier £3.99, plus delivery.

Before you scoff the lot, bear in mind that a 100ml portion of the champagne ice cream contains 154 calories, while it’s 130 calories for the same portion of the red velvet.

An adult man should eat around 2,500 calories a day, while it’s 2,000 for a woman, according to NHS guidelines.

Lidl is yet to reveal its Valentine’s Day menu for 2020, but rival Aldi’s version includes steak and heart-shaped pancakes.

Aldi is also selling heart-shaped chicken nuggets this Valentine’s Day.

Plus, it’s got a dozen roses for just £2.
