Reports from both The Daily Mail and The Sun indicate that Baileys Irish Cream is now selling ice cream pints and bars with enough alcohol in them that to purchase them, you’ll need to show I.D.
The Sun writes about Chocolate Secret, a vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce, flavored with Baileys and sold in pints. The report indicates that the ice cream has an A.B.V. of 13 percent, which is comparable to wine. Both The Sun and the Daily Mail indicate that Tesco, the only store mentioned in either report, will require I.D. for purchase.
As a person who loves ice cream, spirits, and showing I.D., I have searched for any indication that these treats will be crossing the pond, but to no avail. We’ve reached out to Baileys for comment and will update this story if and when we get a response, which will hopefully be, “yes, it’ll be at that 7-Eleven right by your apartment on Tuesday.”
