The popsicle is back as a gourmet dessert treat

The beautiful country is Slovenia can also be, shall we say, just a little bit charmingly eccentric. 

A nation where they eat bear pate (no I haven't tried it!) and relish axe-throwing has to be just little off centre. 

But the good people of the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana might be onto something with their love of new-age popsicles.

That's right, gourmet popsicles are all the rage. Icy poles are back.  

Right in downtown Ljubljana, on the banks of the Ljubanica River you'll find Luckarnica, a shop dedicated to popsicles - whether you'd rather eat in, or take away. 

An offshoot of the town's famous Gelateria Romantika, Luckarnica is billed as being the perfect choice for "healthy treats". 

Each popsicle contains just 4 grams of sugar - but a whole lot of fruity flavour. 

Prefer you popsicle milky, or vegan? No problem. Fruit, fruit-herbal, or fruit-vegetable? All good. 

You can either enjoy a mango, raspberrry, pineapple with mint, or chocolate, perhaps, as a naked treat, or coat, double coat, sprinkle and drizzle it with massive range of additions; ranging from Smarties to diced nuts, dried orange peel or freeze-dried berries.

Either way, you have a taste sensation for just a few bucks. I can see this trend catching on in Australia. 

Luckarnica is at Breg 16, Ljubljana.
