I rarely get to go out these days, but when let loose on a night out I do enjoy a cocktail. I like the fun and frivolity of them, more than the alcoholic content to be honest. So I was looking for ways to re-create that fun at home when entertaining. These Popaball I was asked to review could be just the thing.
They arrived and I was delighted to see that not only were they suitable for vegans but for coeliacs as well. Which meant everyone in the family could try them out. On opening the pot. I have to admit they looked a little like frog spawn. But the kids found them fascinating and I couldn’t wait to try them out in a drink.
How to use them
You simply scoop them out of the liquid and add hem to your drinks. Bare in mind the pineapple flavour of these was quite mild so choose something that wouldn’t over power them. I opted for a vodka and lemonade so I could see them in my glass.
As you suck them up through the straw they pop giving little bursts of flavour.
Try them in your prosecco, smoothies or use them in desserts.
I think they’d look fab on top of a white chocolate cheese cake or topping a tropical Eton mess.
Final Popaball thoughts
They were fun and fascinating. At £3.49 a box I thought they were not unreasonably priced and would make a good addition to a cocktail making night. Having looked at the website I’d be tempted to try out some of the stronger flavours.
