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: 8/10
Intense Chocolate, 9/10
This is my absolute favourite. Has the name suggests, it has a lovely intense chocolate flavour. However, something that suprised me at first, it has a rather distinct carob flavour. Nowadays, I enjoy carob, however, it might be surprising and different for someone who has not had carob before. Anyway, I personally still find it is utterly delicious. Of course, it doesn’t taste exactly like your regular chocolate ice cream, but it still carries a beautiful creamyness and chocolate flavour, that once wishes for in an ice cream. I REALLY love this flavour and would say that I am slightly addicted, haha.
The Bursting Berry, 8/10
Similarly to the intense chocolate, the name of this flavour doesn’t lie. It is bursting with flavour and so refreshing, yet creamy at the same time. Most importantly, the berry flavour is intense but perfectly balanced. Unlike some berry ice creams, Frill did a good job on not making it too sour. I think it tastes a lot like an intenser and more genuine version of a Twister lolly, which is a nostalgic-filled childhood memory of mine. I really like it and love pairing it up with some of the Intense chocolate flavour. Yum!
The Refreshing Green, 6/10
It certainly was refreshing. However, I find that the Bursting berry is even more refreshing and slighly more delicious. It is suposed to contain a bunch of different vegetables. Yet, it doesn’t taste like a green smoothie nor juice, unlike what you might expect. It is not as intense flavour wise as other two, but it has a mellow, delightful tropical vibe to it. The significant amount of pineapple and mango in it, might explain the tropical vibe. This also tastes similar to a Twister, just more subtle than the Bursting berry. I enjoy it but I definitely do prefer the others.
Texture rating: 7/10
On the packing, Frill recommends letting the ice cream thaw for a couple of minutes before serving. I really like how it actually doesn’t melt and stays creamy for a long amount of time. The thickness of it thawed, is kind of like soft serve, soft yet solid enough. It basically stays in that “perfect not too solid nor too melty” state forever. It’s very creamy, yet it doesn’t taste “fatty”, which I really like. Despite the fact that I do absolutely adore having chocolate bits and such in my ice cream, I find texture to be absolutely on point. I wouldn’t say it’s like nice cream creamy at all, it’s more like a 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 creams. I think it delivers what it should and the price isn’t too bad as you don’t eat this everyday.
Nutrition rating 9,5/10
As it says on the packaging, it basically is a frozen smoothie. It simply is fruit + some added fiber, soyalectin and some natural flavouring. It is not made out of only “whole foods”, but to be honest, added fibers nor soyalectin and natural flavourings do any harm to your body (Of course, as long as your body can handle the fiber, which sits at 35g/pint.) It is very low in calories, around 350 per pint, an outstanding source of fiber and offers a great amount of vitamins. No added sugars, oil 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!
