“ Brand: Walls / Type: Milk „
I love Wall's Mini Milks. They were my favourite ice lolly as a child and even now as a twenty two year old, I love them just as much now as I did when I was a child. Basically Mini Milks are ice lollys which are a bit like frozen milk. They are a long cylinder shape and come in three different flavours; vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. I have to say that even though I like all flavours, vanilla is definitely my favourite as it is just so creamy and delicious.
They have a lovely creamy taste - it's heavenly. I guess you could describe them as being a bit like a frozen milkshake. They are quite sweet - in fact I find that sometimes you can taste the sugar from where is has been unsettled, so I'm assuming that these little lollies are full of sugar. One good think about them is that one little lolly contains 30% of an adult's recommended daily allowance - hooray. So I would say that they are great for people (both kids and adults alike) who do not like milk - they will definitely like these.
Good news for those of you who are on a diet!! There are only 30 calories per ice lollies which is great as it won't ruin your diet. However, having said that I find that one lolly is never enough. I usually have to buy a couple. Lookout if I buy a multi-pack box as I can easily eat around 3 or 4 of these in one go - they are that moreish. They do get a little bit sickly after a while though. More good news - these lollies do not contain any artificial flavours or colourings.
Another thing which I like about these lollies, even though it's something really minor and probably sounds really stupid - I like that the sticks are quite long as it means that you can hold them properly and that you don't end up getting sticky fingers when the lolly starts to melt.
Mini Milks are available individually - around 40p I think in convenience stores etc. They are also available from supermarkets - around £2 for a box of 12.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this Mini Milks - especially the vanilla ones!
Thanks for reading!

These milk ice lollies were a particular favourite of mine as a kid, and to tell you the truth I still favour them on a hot summer's day. I mean, ice cream on a stick, what's not to like? But I will base my review on why I think these milk lollies are particularly wonderful for children. :)
- Small, so your child does not get too much junk on one lolly:
These lollies, I found, were rather small which looking back was probably a good thing, as I was not taking in too much junk in the enjoyment of eating a milk ice lolly. Small also means portable, and there is nothing quite like opening up your thermos flask, expecting something bizarre like soup even though it is so hot, and instead finding a (sometimes half melted) mini milk inside. These were easy to store inside cool bags and eat after school, so I didn't have to spend dramatic amounts of money on the ice cream van ripping you off
- Nicely priced
Mini Milks, I find are not at all that expensive; deals at times from Iceland or other major super markets can bring down the price of a box to one pound, which is less than you pay for a simple 99 flake from a van nowadays! True, the lollies are small but there is a huge amount of novelty in each one!
- Different flavours
From what I can remember, a box contained 3 flavours; chocolate, strawberry and vanilla, so your child can get a good variety.
In conclusion, these ice lollies are a brilliant creation from Walls, and the fact that they have made a distinct impression on me all the way from childhood is saying something. Well priced, bite sized and a delicious treat on a hot summer's day, children and adults alike can enjoy these.
are a healthy alternative to your everyday sweet snack. These are perfect if you love milkshakes but also have a sweet tooth. I eat these quite a lot, tend to pick up a box when I shop each fortnight. These come is chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. There are basically little frozen milkshakes on a stick getting 12 in total per box. I remember these from when I was a child, these stick in my mind and when I recently started buying these again I reminisced and it brought back some childhood memories so this must show how they have kept them unchanged over the years.
Little tubes of coloured and flavoured milk, these come in individual clear plastic wrappers and are on classic lolly pop wooden sticks, was hoping there would be a joke on the sticks as there used to be, oh well.
These taste exactly as a frozen milkshake would do, each offering a great sweet taste but with lesser calories. The vanilla one is slightly sweeter in taste than the other two which have their own defined flavours so probably has less need for any further sugar content compared to the vanilla one.
These are quite healthy in comparison to say a Cadburys twirl single finger, infact one mini milk carries half the calories of one finger of Cadburys twirl so easy to lose a few calories without losing out on something sweet for a treat.
These tend to be offer quite regular, these range from £1.89 to £1.99 per box of 12. Not too bad at around £0.16 pence per lolly
Great alternative to chocolate and other biscuits as theses are low in calories, great tasting, simple but not plain in taste
Mini Milks were probably my favourite type of ice cream when I was little and I'm sure that any young child will be a huge fan of these. They're so plain and simple yet they are somehow a firm favourite with most children.
Mini Milks are ice cream lollies that are made with fresh milk and they come in three different flavours - vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. They are only fairly small which makes them perfect for young children and the ice cream comes in a simple long thin shape on an ice cream stick.
The strawberry flavour is without a doubt my favourite as it's the sweetest tasting one. It isn't a strong and overly fruity flavour but it's definitely sweeter than the others. The chocolate one tastes very much like a creamy milk chocolate milkshake and the vanilla, although quite plain, is also a little sweet and very creamy. Each one is very milky though and this is what makes them so delicious. They do taste very much like milkshakes so if you like milkshakes, then I'd definitely recommend giving these a try. The ice cream is also really smooth and creamy which makes them even more delicious to eat.
Each one contains 70% fresh milk so they're very good for you. So as well as being great in taste, they're also a good source of calcium.
You can buy these in a box of 12 in most supermarkets costing £1.56. The box contains 4 lollies in each of the different flavours so you can pick whichever one you prefer. I do wish they did an individual box of just the strawberry ones though as this would go down a treat with me!
These really are an excellent ice cream treat for children, especially very young children. Because they're fairly small it doesn't really last long enough to ever get too messy and everyone I know, whether that's children or adults, absolutely loves these.
It's a shame that I've grown up and got bigger as one never seems to be enough now!
The cheapness of these ice cream/lollies persuaded me to throw a box of them in the trolley, I remember having them quite a lot when I was little and liking them and decided to find out if they were still the same!
They are just in a plain Walls box that has a picture of the product on it and also the nutritional information. The box that we got had around 12 ice lollies in it, I think that at the time it was on special offer for £1.00 which makes each lolly very good value at just under 10p! However if you're out and about and want one, they are just as cheap as you can find them everywhere for 15p!
The actual product is called mini for a reason, it is maybe about 8 cm high and because of this it has just 30 calories in which is so good, its not going to fill you up but it is a really nice ice cream that you wont have to feel guilty about! It is a very simple product and thats where part of the goodness of it lies, just very nice ice cream on a stick. It seems to have a different texture to normal ice cream as you can bite it off the stick, this is a good thing as it doesn't melt that easily. You can get them in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate and I think that my favourite flavour of them is the strawberry as it has a nice tang to it! However the good thing with them having so few calories and being so cheap is that if you cant make a decision you could always just have all 3 flavours!
If you're out and about and on either a budget or a diet then there's no reason not to get one of these, go on try them!
As many of you know, I struggle with my weight, and I'm constantly trying to lose a little - this doesn't mean I want to be without my favourite treats though - and I still love an ice-cream now and then . The trouble is, ice creams are usually pretty fattening, and while fruit juice ice lollies are nice, they just aren't the same .
So, whilst browsing through the supermarket freezer aisles, I came across Mini Milks - now, these were a childhood favourite of mine, and my parents always had them in the freezer when I was younger (and in fact still get them in for my daughter). They were only 1.99 for 12, which was pretty good value - but the true joy was when I looked on the back and discovered that these are only 30 calories each with only 0.7g of fat!
There are three flavours in the pack - vanilla,strawberry, and chocolate, and I couldn't wait to get stuck in , so I got home, and a few minutes later sat down to enjoy my first - a vanilla flavoured one!
Opening it up, it's a cylindrical shape a few inches long, in a pale creamy colour . Licking it, it tastes slightly sweet, with a very mild creamy vanilla flavour to it . Biting into it, its quite soft, and doesn't hurt my teeth to eat, but thankfully doesn't melt too fast either!
Right, Strawberry next - not straight after , I hasten to add, but the next day . This was similar in appearance to the vanilla one, except for being pink . It tasted more like artificial strawberry than the real thing, a little like those sterilised milkshakes you can buy, but still very delicate in flavour and slightly sweet .
The last one I had was a chocolate one - brown this time, with a milky, slightly cocoa flavour to it , it wasn't too sweet, but was definitely very creamy .
I didn't feel with any of these that I was actually being deprived of anything, which is great . They are actually aimed at children, and I think these are a pretty healthy product that I am definitely happy for my daughter to eat - especially as each lolly is 70 percent milk, making them a good source of calcium .
A great little ice cream treat that doesn't leave me feeling guilty, 5*
Surely theres not one bad thing you can say about these lollies?
Made by Walls they come in a more than generous box of 12 and costing usually just over £1 (or less on regular special deals found in many supermarkets) they are more than worth the money!!
After dinner, still feeling like having that pudding but not wanting the guilt? Then simply grab a Mini Milk in one of the three amazing flavours which are chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. these small but delicious treats contain much more flavour than a simple glass of milk and give you the same pleasure as consuming that chocolate cake after your meal!
At only 30 calories per lolly they are a brilliant treat for yourself or for children providing more nutrients and are generally better for you than nearly all other ice lollies currently on the market!
Overall I would highly recommend this product to people of every age! As a small snack to keep you going and provide some great flavour and a smile to your day :)
***Walls Mini Milk Lollies***
Well after last night's disaster with the cheesecake, I thought that I would try again with a different dessert, as we always like something sweet to finish a meal. I was shopping in Tesco and came across these lollies on offer - they reminded me of sunny days and my childhood, so I put them in the trolley.
They also reminded me of the dreadful time when I experimented and tried to make my own by pouring a glass of milk into a lolly casing - YUK!!! Don't try that at home!
***What are they like?***
These lollies come in a pack of twelve individually wrapped milk lollies, in the flavours of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. The packaging is nice and bright with an orange box, with pictures of the lollies themselves on the front along with some cows and fresh strawberries. It clearly states that they are rich in calcium and are made with fresh milk.
It also tells us that they are free from artificial colours and flavours.
Now for the good bit, they are only 30 yes 30 calories each!!! I couldn't believe it - I was so surprised that I ate two! For research purposes of course...I sampled vanilla and chocolate. Each lolly also contains 30% of an adults recommended calcium intake. Now as I am rubbish at drinking milk, this cheered me up.
They are encased in plastic wrappers with the Walls logo on them and are a small cylinder shape. They smelt pleasant and when I bit into once the texture was firm and the vanilla lolly did have a taste of vanilla, but it was quite mild. The chocolate one had a nice chocolatey taste and reminded me of the chocolate taste you get in Neopolitan Ice Cream.
They both tasted of quality and although they are only little things I felt like I had eaten a nice size dessert when I had finished.
I think that for warm days these are a great way to get your calcium whislt keeping your calorie intake quite low. They would be good for children who don't like milk for example.
In our house vanilla is the clear winner - my children will only eat this flavour. I will eat the chocolate as well, it is usually the strawberry flavour that is left languishing!
I find that they are best eaten very frozen if you know what I mean - if they have been out of the freezer for a time, then they are not as nice.
Overall, sometimes the old fashioned foods are the best and I will continue to buy these lollies, now that I have rediscovered them.
They were £1.99 for 12, so I suppose that is not too bad at under 20p a lolly. They are on offer until mid June at Tesco, with 2 packs for £3.00 and there are other lollies included in this offer. I also bought some mini Calippo's.
Mini-Milks have been around for just over 30 years. A mini-milk is basically an ice lolly. It is about the length of an average adult hand. It is equally the width of a human finger but cylindrical in shape. There are three main flavours to mini-milks. There is Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla.
If you talk to anyone who is a fan of these lollies, I think it's fair to say that the Vanilla flavour lollies are fan favourites. With this said however, lollies are a very personal choice. I personally like the Vanilla ones because I adore Vanilla. I wouldn't say anything bad about the other two flavours though, as everyone is different.
For people my age and older (25+), Mini-Milks are more nostalgic than anything else. I can remember quite vividly going to the ice cream van as a child, and buying a mini-milk, or being taken to the paper shop and begging my mother for one. I would always buy the vanilla ones, because I loved how they would just melt away in my mouth. The mini-milk was so sweet and tastey. I also found that on a very hot day, nothing quite quenched my thirst like a vanilla mini-milk.
They are very reasonably priced for a lolly. Most ice lollies will set you back well over 1 pound, but a mini milk can be bought for as little as 40 pence. Which, in todays credit crunch climate makes mini-milk the budgeters ice lolly of choice!!! Nowadays you can buy mini-milks mainly in multipacks. These will set you back a few pounds but it will be money well spent, and still work out cheaper than competing brands.
Overall, the mini-milk is a great little lolly. The only fault I could draw would be that they don't last very long. Eating one nowadays, it becomes apparent that they are designed for littler mouthes...i.e. children. When I eat one now, it's gone in a couple of bites. Adults aren't meant to eat them, but I love them so much that I still do from time to time! A very nice chain of lollies - try them now if you haven't already!
I loved Mini Milks as a kid and I still love now, and I recently turned 30! I was thrilled to rediscover them last summer in my local Co-op and stocked up the freezer with them to last the few fleeting days of warmth and sun.
I love them as they're small, cheap and are just big enough to satisfy my sweet ice cream cravings and sweet tooth without filling me up or making me feel guilty.
They cost 30p each if you buy them individually or are available in boxes of 12 for £2, I spotted them on offer in Asda today at 2 boxes for £3, even more of a bargain!
The lollies are available in the following flavours -
My favourite is the strawberry one, the vanilla one is a little too bland for my taste whilst the chocolate one can be a bit too overpowering with a strange almost metallic aftertaste.
Each Mini milk contains only 30 calories and therefore fits in brilliantly on the slimming world plan I'm following, I can have 5 of these in one day if I want and not have to cut back elsewhere. I would much rather suck on one of these than eat a bowl of ice cream.
These are very moreish and I find it impossible to only eat one in a single sitting, I find it best to lick them rather than bite into them as they last longer and you can enjoy the lovely creamy taste for longer.
I'm looking forward to the summer again to indulge again, I dont have them at this time of year as I find eating ice cream in the winter at home a bit odd! (I know, I'm wierd!)
I probably shouldn't admit here that I've been eating my grandson's mini milks because the Mrs will probably read this. Sorry Mrs! I have to make the confession for the sake of this review though.
These mini milks have been going strong since our own lot were little. That's probably what attracted our daughter to buying some for our grandson. He isn't very keen on milk or on cheese so even though it might seem odd to buy him ice lollies in winter, it's a good way to get him to have dairy in his diet. They make a great pudding whatever the time of year.
These cost just under £2 for a pack of 12 which I reckon isn't bad. Especially as these are a tried and tested brand name product that you can be confident is decent quality every time.
They come in vanilla flavour, chocolate and strawberry and I've recently had a chocolate one and a vanilla one. Both had really firm but mild flavours to them which I thought was ideal for little taste buds. They're great for adults too because they last for a fair little while and are only 30 calories each! What a great substitute for high fat ice cream or the like.
I especially love how they have a really sweet and creamy taste along with a nice soft texture. There's 4.5g of sugar in each one according to the box so beware that this is why they taste so nice! Not ideal for everyday eating by delicate little teeth then.
I think these are good for the whole family really. They're low in calories so they're suited to adults and they're high in milk so they're beneficial to little ones in that respect. And whatever age you are they taste great!
I used to have mini Milks as a child and I used to be a huge fan of these ice creams. I'm 22, and I'm an even bigger fan of them now! As a child I remember the mini milk packets with the cows on the front, now they seem to come in rather plain looking wrappers.
***Milk Time range***
Made by Walls, milk time offers a variety of ice-creams whose milk content ranges from 38% to 70%. They are free from artificial colours and flavours and have been fortified with calcium to contain at least 15% of calcium recommended intake. Most European guide-lines recommend a calcium intake of at least 800 mg, many children don't get that!
Milk time has been specially formulated for mums to provide kids with snacks that can fit into a healthy, balanced diet and can help boost their calcium intake.
Each milk time snack contains as much calcium as 100ml of milk.
***About Mini Milks***
Launched back in 1976, small but perfectly formed, Mini milk have been a firm favourite ever since. Itspart of the Walls Milk Time range and they come in three delicious flavours: Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla.
I would just describe these ice cream's as bottled flavoured milk, but without the bottle and its obviously frozen into an ice-cream!
***Mini Milk - Vanilla***
Mini milk vanilla are my favourite flavour. I've always loved vanilla ice cream and it tastes really creamy and yummy, just like vanilla milkshake.

Mini milks are about 5 & ½ inches long and are about 1 inch thick. They are quite small ice-creams, more of a good reason to have 2!
***Where can I get these***
Mini milks are sometimes sold in local shops singly, or are sold in packs of mixed flavours in supermarkets such as Sainsburys, Tesco's, Morrison's and other good supermarkets in packs of 12 (420ml).
1 mini milk is 35ml.
I got mine from sainsburys, which were on offer as buy 1 get 1 free. I'm pretty sure the box only cost about £3.00.
When you buy the ice creams singly obviously prices will vary in different shops, but I can get them from my local shop for 99p, which is great if kids want a treat to buy with their pocket money!
They come in a distinctive yellow box with a small cow on the front and also a picture of the 3 different flavours of mini milk. Inside the box are the individual wrapped ice creams which come in a see through packet with the walls heart logo in red on them.
The ice creams come on a traditional plain ice cream wooden stick. When I was younger they used to have jokes on the ice cream sticks, but they no longer do this.
Some people I know just go ahead and bite the ice cream and its gone within a minute. How-ever I like to lick the ice cream, as you get to taste the flavours a lot better. The ice creams are very creamy but not at all sickly, and I find that they are very more-ish.
When you open the packet they haven't really got much smell to them, but once you start licking the ice cream, you can smell the gorgeous creamy chocolate, vanilla or strawberry smell.
Unlike normal ice cream/ice lollies, I find they don't melt as quick, which is a good thing! I hate it when the ice cream drips down onto your fingers and makes them all sticky!
These are truly yummy, so yummy I use them as a treat for myself, but admittedly sometimes I have 2 rather than one, as they can get very addictive, but as they are a good source of calcium and have only 0.7g of fat who can complain?
I would also recommend these as a treat/snack for children too, as I'm pretty sure they'll love them. If they don't I'd be very surprised.
(Review also on ciao)
I rediscovered mini milk ice lollys when I was on a low fat diet, they are so incredibly low fat!! Only 1.5 slimming world syns! I have included the nutritional value further down.
Mini milks are a bargain ice lolly although they are only small at about 2inch diam and 5inch long... be carefull of the pink one they can look a little naughty - or maybe thats just my childish mind! They generally cost about 30p each which these days is very good value for money.
Mini milks are flavoured frozen milk, they come in 3 flavours that I am aware of Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate.
Strawberry is my favourite, it doesn't have that synthetic strawberry milkshake taste but more like a fresh strawberry smoothie and its incredibly creamy and you really feel you are having an indulgent treat.
I had vanilla on the off chance due to the icecream man not having any strawberry and I was pleasently surprised, it was yummy and tasted more like a solid version of a mr whippy ice cream!
The chocolate one is sythetic and is a bit like cheap choc milkshake frozen, but my son loves it!
Here is the nutritional values of these yummy low fat lollys!
***Mini Milk - Strawberry*** the other flavours are similar values.
Energy: 30 (2%)
Sugar: 3.9g (5%)
Fat: 0.7g (1%)
Saturates: 0.5g (3%)
Salt: Trace (<1%)
Oh and apparently they contain as much calcium as 100 ml of milk so great for growing children...if you don't eat them all first!
When I am out shopping I am always on the look out for little treats for my two grandchildren. When I spotted some "Milk Time Mini Milk" in the frozen food section of my local Tesco I decided they would be ideal as a little treat.
Milk time were first launched by Wall's in 1976. Wall's is the brand name of Unilever Heartbrand Ice Cream whose biggest rivals are supermarket own brands.
I bought a box containing twelve lollies. They come in a square shaped box which has a picture of the lollies on the front. Also on the front of the box is the heart shaped logo.
Inside the box are four strawberry, four chocolate and four vanilla flavoured lollies. Each lolly is only 10cm long and 7cm in diameter, hence the name mini. They are wrapped in a clear cellaphane wrapper with the red heart shaped logo displayed all over each one.
Obviously as I am doing a review on them I had to try each flavour. Not all at the same time of couse.
Mini Milk Vanilla
On opening the wrapper I could not smell anything. When I tasted the lolly I got a distinct taste of milk which was great. There was no taste of vanilla. I enjoyed eating this but did find it a bit bland.
Mini Milk Strawberry
On opening this wrapper I could smell a hint of strawberry. When I tasted it there was a nice pleasant taste of strawberry. It was not a burst of strawberry as I had expected, just a nice pleasant taste. This lolly was very enjoyable to eat.
Mini Milk Chocolate
There was a faint smell of chocolate when I opened this wrapper. But I was disappointed when I tasted it. Being a chocaholic I thought this would be my favourite. All I can say about the flavour is that it tasted like "cheap chocolate". I did eat the entire lolly hoping I might get a different taste but I did not.
On different occasions my grandchildren have eaten these and they both love all three flavours. They are happy in the knowledge that I am not too keen on these because they know I will not be eating any and this leaves more for them.
Mini Milks have no artificial colours or flavours and are made with fresh milk. Each lolly contains 30% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium.
Each lolly contains:-
4.5g of sugar
0.7g of fat
0.046g of salt
I think these are a lovely treat for kids but I was a bit disappointed in them. Yes I know I DID buy them for the kids. The only one I found enjoyable was the strawberry flavour.
The box of twelve lollies cost £1.49 and I am certain they can also be bought individually.
Last week we had some beautiful weather so I took my grandaughters to the park where we decided to treat ourselves to an ice cream. I only wanted something small because my diet is still going well and I did not want to spoil it so I chose a Mini Milk because they only contain about 40 calories.
The wrapper I thought was very pretty. I had picked a strawberry one and it came in a pretty pink wrapper that was covered with pictures of little cartoon cows, it is definitely aimed at children but I thought it was lovely too.
It smells a little bit like strawberry milkshake and when I first bit into it I realised it tastes like it as well. It has quite a bland strawberry flavour and I think I can taste milk more than I can taste strawberry but it is a very creamy and tasty ice cream. It melts quickly in my mouth and as it melts the taste of strawberry does get a little stronger but there isn't the robust strawberry flavour that I would like or expect from a manufacturer such as Walls. The Mini Milk leaves a nice fruity aftertaste which is very nice and leaves my mouth with a lovely summery feeling.
I really like the texture of Mini Milk ice creams because they are quite solid but melt quickly which makes them ideal for even the smallest child providing you do not mind cleaning them up as the ice cream drips down the stick.
You can buy Mini Milks in chocolate or vanilla as well and I have tried the vanilla one which is lovely and creamy and very cooling in the summer sun. I do not think I fancy the chocolate variety because I am not a big fan of chocolate ice cream and I think it would be a little bit tasteless if the flavouring is anything like the strawberry ice cream I sampled at the park.
My Mini Milk only cost me 30p from the ice cream van but I have seen them in boxes of 8 in Sainsburys which gives you a selection of flavours and I think this only costs about £1.39 which is very good value I think.
Launched back in 1976, small but perfectly formed, Milk Time Mini Milk has been a firm favourite with both young and old. Each product contains over 70% milk and is a source of calcium. There are three delicious flavours to choose from - Vanilla, Strawberry and Chocolate.
