“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Ice Cream „
I recently purchased something very similar to this, which i subsequently reviewed, at Iceland; but then i noticed this one in Sainsburys. I really liked the sound of the flavours in these Sainsburys Fruit dairy splits; In each box you get 8 fruit splits. Flavours are pineapple, blackcurrent and strawberry. It will most likely vary as to how many of each splits you get in the box. In this box for example, i have 3 strawberry, 3 blackcurrent and 2 pineapple.
The colour of the box is sky blue with 3 pictures of each split on the front. The strawberry split has had a chunk taken out of it and you can see the inside ice cream. It states on the box that these splits are made with 'real fruit juice' and that the flavourings and colourings within the splits are all natural.
I love each of the lolies and i have always liked a combination of both flavoured ice mixed with a good ice cream. The ice cream reminds me of a cornish type ice cream with a yellowish colour. It is quite rich, very tasty and blends well with the outer fruity layer of ice.
I like all of the flavours although my favourite as is usualy the case with me, is the strawberry one.

On the box it states that you can buy 'any 2 for £2.00'; this includes being able to purchase some other ice cream/lolly products from Sainsburys for that price, so like a mix and match offer. This includes Sainsburys spiral lollies (vanilla & chocolate), fruit push up lollies, rainbow lollies, rocket lollies, sprinkle ice lollies, vanilla milk lollies and raspberry ripple scewballs. I think that for only £1.00 per box of 8 refreshing tasting lollies, this is great value and money well spent. That is basically only about £0.12 pence per split. For decent tasting, fruity lollies with a good flavoured ice cream; i'd say its well worth it.
I will award these lollies the full 5 stars; not only for their very low cost but for the flavours which i think are all nice.
I got a couple of boxes of these last year when it was hot in summer (remember that one day!) in a bid to save money after feeling severely ripped off buying various other ice creams and lollies.
It costs about £1.20 for a box of ten and in that box are flavoured ice lollies with vanilla ice cream inside. A bit like a solero but not quite as extravagant.
There are 3 flavours of lolly, pineapple, blackcurrant and strawberry. I am not usually a lover of strawberry flavoured things but that one was definitely my favourite out of all 3.
The ice lollies themselves, actually had quite a lot of flavour, it wasn't a case of when you suck the top, there's no flavour left at the bottom. The strawberry one is definitely the sweetest, the blackcurrant one is ok, but quite a sour tang to it, and the pineapple one is just weird, I'm not sure it goes with the ice cream as it tastes a bit like a sorbet.
The ice cream on the inside was actually not that bad, it was very creamy and tasted nice, nothing special but it didn't taste like the really cheap stuff you can get. It was middle of the road and perfectly acceptable.
I don't think that these are too good for the waistline, but I'm not sure any sort of frozen treat would be (unless you like to suck on ice cubes maybe!) but as a treat for those hot days they will do for me.
I think £1.25 for 10 lollies which actually have ice cream in the middle, is a great price, and I will definitely be purchasing these again this year. They are third on the list after mini calippos and wobbly lollies. I just wish they would change the pineapple flavour to orange or something that goes a bit better with the ice cream.
This is a review for Sainsbury's Real Fruit Dairy Splits.
A pack of ten 73ml lollies costs £1.28 working out to be less than 13p per lolly! A bargain considering a similar lolly from the ice cream van would cost about a £1 for 1!
There is a selection of 3 different flavours in the box: Blackcurrant, pineapple and strawberry, all made from fruit concentrate.
All flavours have a creamy vanilla flavour, dairy ice cream centre, that is smooth and delicious. The ice lolly is full of flavour that lasts the whole lolly through, unlike some other own brands I have had in the past that lose their flavour after a few licks!!
The combination of ice lolly and ice cream is heaven like and ideal for those who cant choose between the treat of ice cream and the thirst quencher of a fruit ice lolly!
These lollies are not that unhealthy either which was a pleasant suprise after munching the whole box away in a matter of days!
The strawberry flavour lolly contains 86 Kcals and 1.8g saturated fat.
The blackcurrant flavour lolly contains 88 Kcals and 1.8g saturated fat.
The pineapple flavour lolly contains 84 Kcals and 1.8g saturated fat.
They all work out to be just 1.5 weight watcher points and are well worth it!!
Unfortunately the lollies are not suitable for those with an allergy against milk but they are suitable for Vegetarians.
They can be found in the freezer dessert aisle of Sainsburys and they must be kept frozen- if thawed, they can not be refrozen.
The lollies are individually wrapped in film that is not currently recyclable but as the outer box is made of card, this can be recycled.
For those conscious of their carbon footprint, these lollies get extra brownie points as they are produced in the UK.
