'Pure' Ice Lollys

Water on a stick
  (+4)

  [vote for,

Some people buy bottled water, apparently because of its stylistic properties.

I propose a new stream of revenue. Ice Lollies. These could be sold individually alongside the traditional sugary lollies.

Intended markets:
Health fanatics
Fashion victims
People who normally buy vanilla icecream

The factory could rapidly produce many flavours with minimal retooling:
Buxton, Volvic, Evian, Perrier and Highland spring
Although you'd have to rinse the equipment in-between to prevent carry-over.

These could be distinguished by different 'textures' (as well as shapes) to reflect the style of water:
Completely clear
frosted finish
containing tiny bubbles

       the sad thing about this is that it will actually happen. God help us.

       Make this glacier ice, and I'd go for it (that stuff fizzes and pops). Otherwise this is just selling icicles.

       Throw some sugar in there and I'm sold... I used to fancy flavor-less slushies (ask for no syrup). The ice slush apparently already has sugar in it, tastes pretty good.

       Now all we have to do is invent a device so cunning that we can mass produce frozen water! How soon can you start the marketing campaign [Loris] my money is already available for venture capital investment.   

       (Why would they put the sugar in the Slush sounds like a rather unnecessary stage?)   

       Note: The old Urban legend was that Mac D's would put ice in drinks to save money by not having to give away Coke. Another Urban legend was that a MAc D's Employee who wanted to dispel this myth did the maths and worked out that the Coke was actually cheaper than producing the Ice Cubes.

       Don't forget Dasani(C) lolly's, made with real, fresh tap water. They are so cold you won't taste the Chlorine.

       Quiescently frozen, I presume?

       When I was little, we'd stick tongue depressors in the ice cube trays and put it in the freezer, then when it was frozen we'd have something very similar to this.   

       Now, I put water bottles in the freezer overnight, and it literally lasts for hours outside the freezer if you need it to.   

       Same concept. So I'd say this is somewhat baked. UNLESS you could make Water Push-Up Pops with Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble on the side...I'd buy that.
