Welsh Shop Selling Slushies Made From WKD And Strongbow Dark Fruits

Welsh Shop Selling Slushies Made From WKD And Strongbow Dark Fruits

If you're looking for a way to stay cool, hydrated, and refreshed in this heat, this is almost definitely the way forward for you. A local shop in Wales is selling slushies made out of WKD and Strongbow Dark Fruits.

Depending on your views on that, this news will have gone down one of two ways. Some people will be absolutely mortified, some people will be delighted.

Basically, this whole sordid experiment is the brainchild of Wayne Phillips and Daniel Sturrock. They own a small shop in Carmarthenshire called Cynwyl Elfed shop and post office.

The idea for alcoholic slushies had been in their heads for quite some time before they actually did it, but one day after becoming exhausted at a school sports day, they finally got around to emptying the machine and giving it a go.

The guys poured a load of Strongbow Dark Fruits into the machine and let it freeze. Nervously - you'd have to imagine - they tested the results later.

After sharing a video of their recipe to Facebook, they were overwhelmed by the response it received. More than 3,000 people commented on it and it was viewed 367,000 times.

This year, they've branched out and are making WKD flavoured slushies. Once again, people are flocking from far and wide to sample their wares. They've only been on sale for a few weeks, but word is spreading.

Mr Sturrock told Wales Online: "Since the weather has picked up, it has been selling very well.

"The one last year was a big success."

He continued: "It's been a great response from the people who have come in to try it, some people have posted pictures of themselves with the drink online which we've shared to our own Facebook page.

"Some people have come from Cross Hands to try it, that's about a 20, 25 mile drive from here.

"It's been a big boost for us, people coming in to try it has really helped our sales."

On top of that, if boozy slushie isn't your thing, you can get a coffee flavoured one that is made from locally sourced coffee.

Definitely a better option than the blue WKD one if you're driving.

In case you're in the area, or planning to make a pilgrimage, the drinks are £2 for half a pint, and £3.50 for the full pint.

Obviously, because they're boozy, you'll need to be over 18.
