Frill is an amazing UK-based company that is just starting to sell their products in Sweden as well. They’re calling their ice cream “The frozen smoothies” and there’s not really any better explanation than that!
They are at the moment only carrying three different flavours but I’d personally love to more. Also I’d like to see more stores in Sweden selling it as there are one in Malmö, which is where I got mine, and the rest are situated in Stockholm. The only real “complaint” I have is that I’d love the Intense Chocolate to have some pieces of some sort like cacao nibs, that would just be pure heaven!
Hope you find this review helpful!
Taste rating: 7,5/10
Intense Chocolate, 7,5/10
The chocolate has an intense chocolate taste but also a kind of carob like flavour to it too, even if it doesn’t contain any. It is extremely good but doesn’t taste exactly like your regular chocolate ice cream due to that, but it still carries the vital creamyness and chocolately flavour. I am being a bit harsh on it rating wise but I am comparing it to a regular very chocolately ice cream which isn’t really fair. I REALLY liked it and will be buying it again, soon!
The Bursting Berry, 8/10
was so refreshing but creamy at the same time! It has an intense berry flavour but it doesn’t become sour at all, like some berry ice creams can, it is fruity but still sweet. I think this tasted very much like an intenser and more genuinely fruity Twister, a childhood memory of mine. Really liked it, so refreshing and it has a nice balance between fruity and sweet so I’ll definitely be purchasing it again.
The Refreshing Green, 6/10
was refreshing, but I actually found that the Berry was even more refreshing. You can’t taste the vegetables really, not compared to many green smoothies and juices as you might expect it to taste like. It not as intense flavour wise compared to the other two but it has a mellow greenish tropical vibe to it. It makes sense as it contains a significant amount of pineapple and mango. 🙂 It also tastes similar to the childhood lollipop Twister, but more subtle. I liked it but I probably won’t buy it again since I liked the other better and I think I’ll be making green smoothies instead to satisfy my needs.
Texture rating: 7/10
It only takes around 3-5 minutes to thaw and it doesn’t melt, it stays soft, but just solid enough, and creamy for a very long period of time. It basically stays in that “perfect not too hard nor not too melted” state forever, it is mostly due to the added fibers.
It’s very creamy but not like in the way it tastes “fatty”, which sometimes is nice in ice cream, which isn’t bad if you ask me. The texture is absolutely on point if you ask me, even though I absolutely adore chocolate bits and such in my ice cream. I wouldn’t say it’s like nice cream creamy at all, it’s like proper good sorbet creamy if you know what I mean.
Value rating: 8/10
I found it for 59kr / £5,25 / $6,55 / £6,15 which is quite expensive for most but not too bad compared to Ben & Jerry and other “health food” ice cream. I think it delivers and the price isn’t too bad as you don’t eat this everyday.
Nutrition rating 9,5/10
As it says on the package: “The frozen smoothie”. It literally just is fruit + some added fiber, soyalectin and some natural flavouring. It is not completely “whole food” but to be honest added fibers nor soyalectin and natural flavours do any harm to your body in any way (as long as your body can handle the fiber 35g/pint.) It also is very low in calories, around 350/pint, outstanding source of fiber and also offers a great amount of vitamins. No added sugars, fats or anything like that!
Final rating: 9/10
All flavours deliver a great amount of amazing flavour more or less! They’re super healthy, reasonably priced and definitely a spectacular alternative to regular ice cream!
