For many women, the infamous scene of Daniel Craig's sculpted torso emerging from the sea in Casino Royale will be ingrained in our memories forever.
Well it seems that now, we can have a taste of what the lucky Eva Green experienced in the film thanks to Del Monte.
The US food group have immortalised the James Bond star’s naked torso in a limited-edition frozen smoothie on a stick on sale in the UK to mark National Ice Cream Week.
The creation came after the star was voted Britain's Coolest Smoothie in a poll of over 1,000 women across the UK, beating stiff competition from the likes of Jude Law, Hugh Grant and Tom Jones.
The lollies were also commissioned to launch the new Del Monte Superfruit Smoothie, a blend of blueberries, pomegranate and are under 100 calories each – as if you’re even going to care about the calorie content while you’re licking away!
However, not all women seem to be as excited about the launch. On calling for the release, a less than enthused lady on the receiving line sighed: "Is it about the lollies..?"
Clearly Daniel Craig isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Or maybe she was just disappointed the Welsh crooner didn’t make the cut.
Feast your eyes on the delicious image ladies and decide for yourselves…
