Nickelodeon Slime Ice Cream and Pops Are Coming Soon to Walmart

Walmart has announced plans to launch a brand-new frozen treats line inspired by Nickelodeon's iconic green slime!


Nickelodeon Slime ice cream cups and frozen bars will be launching at the superstore on Monday, April 29, 2019, People has revealed. The cups, which retail for $4.97 for 12, are made with low-fat vanilla ice cream and green icing swirls, and the pops, costing $2.97 for a pack of 12, are a combination of creamy lemon lime and orange ices.


This is not the first time Nickelodeon's famous slime has been turned into a frozen treat. In the '90s, Popsicle made Nickelodeon Green Slime Ice Pops.

Nickelodeon has been synonymous with slime since the number-one entertainment brand for kids introduced the green semi-viscous substance to kids in the 1980's. It’s a concept that has adorned the Nickelodeon logo and A-list celebrities in some form for the most part of two generations, and Nickelodeon kids of all ages have dreamed about what it would be like to be slimed.

The Nickelodeon Slime ice cream cups and frozen bars follows Walmart launching Nickelodeon Slime Sauce (ketchup) last summer.

In 2017, former Double Dare and What Would You Do? host Marc Summers revealed that the sticky slime is actually made up of vanilla pudding, apple sauce, green food coloring and a little oatmeal. He was prompted to dish about the recipe when hundreds of at-home versions started popping up online.

“You know, it’s weird. Slime is hot again,” Summers said at the time.

Jell-O has also created edible slime to save parents the trouble of making it themselves (or actually cause more trouble if you consider the potential mess). Jell-O’s product comes in two flavors: Monster Lime and Unicorn Strawberry flavors.

This year’s most high-profile sliming event, the Kid’s Choice Awards, was hosted DJ Khaled on March 23. Chris Pratt, Will Smith, and Josh Peck were all among the lucky few to get slimed.
