Barratt Refreshers Ice Lollies
Advantages: Taste like the sweets
This is a review of Barratt Refreshers Ice Lollies which was buying a few months ago when the weather got a bit hotter. I have been suffering with heart burn whilst pregnant and had heard a rumour that the sweets Refreshers helped combat the pain of heart burn so when I saw these lollies I thought I'd give them a try!
The lollies are long and thin with four stripes along it (a bit like a rocket lolly) each depicting the pastel colours of refresher sweets. They have the usual wooden stick to hold and I would say they are a mixture of a fruity ice lolly and an ice cream as they do have a bit of an ice cream texture to them.
I immediately liked the taste of these lollies, which had a bit of a fizzy flavour to them when they melt on your tongue and were definitely the same sort of taste as the fizzy sweets.
Did they do the trick?
They did temporarily fix my heartburn but it sadly came back and had to be dosed with Gaviscon as usual which lasts a little longer!
I liked these lollies but my husband did not really like them. This is fine by me as it meant he would leave them alone in the freezer for me to eat! We do seem to have different tastes in ice cream and lollies anyway so what I like, he doesn't really and vice versa although he will eat anything if he is desperate.
For a while now, these have been marked with an on pack offer of £1 and you get four in a box. This really isn't bad when you consider that I paid £1 for a single similar sized ice lolly at the coop recently. It was a hot day and worth it though!!
These are nice to have in the freezer as a treat and really do taste different to any other iced lolly I have tried. I would say you will love them if you like ice cream and the refresher sweets. Whilst they are nice, they are not something I will buy regularly but I would get them every now and again, especially if they are on offer. I think there are nicer iced lollies out there that are similarly priced.
Summary: Good in the hotter weather
