      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Today Saturday 18th Feb 2012 I have bought a ~Friji milkshake which clearly states "gluten free" Luckily my grand-daughter (10 years old) who is a Coeliac suggested we check with the Coeliac site to see if it was safe for her to drink. According to the Coeliac records it is not safe. So, I suggest you check with them and remove the "gluten free" directions from these milkshakes, it could have bad consequences for any child with a gluten intollerance.Thank youPhilippa Jones

      .

      I just felt like a bottle of Frijj the other day. I do like the odd one now and again but due to the calorific nightmare that is in this bottle then I don't reach for them all that much. Then again I can say that although I do like them, they aren't something that I crave all that much, so I guess i'm a bit safe that way!

      There is a little range of different Milkshakes in my local Asda - I would say about 6 flavours. There is the Chocolate one, Straawberry and Banana which is the "normal" flavours, and then a few different ones. I also like the Cookies and Cream one and the Chocolate Fudge Brownie one.

      These are found next to the Milk and obviously kept in the chiller as they are a Milk product. This comes in a 500ml bottle and the normal price of this is around £1 normally. Sometimes this range has been on offer for buy one get 1 one free, or 2 for £1.50 and other offers like that, but it's usually just the 1 that I want at the time anyway.

      The bottle for this is alright. A thin plastic bottle which has a slight shape to it. There is a wrap around label going around the bottle and this has a kind of Cow pattern on it but by this I mean it is a white label with some brown splodges on it. This colouring of the Splodges on the bottle is different depending on what flavour it is. The neck of this bottle is quite wide, but still easy enough to drink out of the bottle and i've never poured this into a glass to drink it I just sip this out of the bottle.

      Date wise this has a use by date of about 7 days when i've bought it, so not bad.

      This tastes rich and Chocolate-y. This tastes pretty sweet and considering that this has 325 calories per the 500ml bottle then it is pretty sweet. It is quite a thick Milkshake and I personally can't drink this whole bottle in a short space of time. I feel that this is best drank when it is nice and freezing cold, so I have the odd sip of this and then just pop it back in the fridge. Lovely.

      This is a lovely Milkshake which is fresh and rich tasting and priced not bad. Just a shame it is so bad for you calorie wise.

        Great Tasting Chocolate Milkshake

        What a beautiful relationship...

        Chocolate & Milk, all in one extra thick creamy milkshake.

        Dairy Crest have quite frankly set the bar very high with this sensational beverage and it quite simply puts some of the other insipid concoctions that call themselves milkshakes to shame.

        Usually retailing for approx £1.29 for a 500ml bottle, I picked up two for £1 in Tesco this morning. You can find these in the chiller cabinets virtually everywhere, but usually not at this price. Other flavours in the range are banana, strawberry & chocolate fudge brownie plus the occasional limited editions.

        This product initially hit UK shops in 1993 and the successful brand has been linked to several high profile marketing campaigns including, Big Brother sponsorship, The Simpsons and their current association with Sky TV's Saturday morning football show "Soccer AM" which according to Marc Dubery (Dairy Crest Sales and Marketing Director - Liquids) aims to up Frijis appeal to predominantly young male consumers.

        The milkshake itself is made with fresh milk (76% skimmed, 18% whole), it contains less then 1% fat, has no artificial colours or flavours and is gluten free. At 325 calories per bottle it's a slimmer's nightmare. However, it's like a liquid meal and very satisfying when you're hungry. Another plus is that although it's very smooth and chocolaty, it isn't sickly.

        As it says on the bottle "Shake Well And Enjoy!"

          All in review -------- Make your own mind up

          I have two little girls who both love milkshake and to be honest I quite like some every now and then as well. Out shopping one day I had noticed this Dairy Crest Friji milkshake, I tend to normally stick to Yazoo to be truthful but a change is always good every now and then so I bought a bottle and off to the checkout I went.



          At the time that I bought this milkshake it was on offer for 2 for £1.50 but if you buy it without it being on offer it is roughly around £1.39 per bottle which contains 500 ml of the milkshake. I haven't noticed these on sale for while so when they are keep an eye out and its near enough by one get one free and a much better buy if you ask me.


          You can find this in most supermarkets in the chilled section where the milk is stored until Yazoo which sits on a shelf in the home baking isle. It comes in many different flavours not just chocolate so it is good that there is a verity to choose from.



          They come in a white plastic bottle with a brown cow print all over it. It has the brand name is black lettering on the front of the bottle and a crew on plastic lid which is easy to open and close with the twist of the cap.

          Buttermilk Powder,
          Modified Maize Starch,
          Stabilisers (Carrageenan, Guar Gum).



          As with every milkshake the bottle should be shaken and not surd (joke). No the bottle should be shaken before being used. When I first took my first sip it couldn't help but notice that it was really think and kind of creamy, it actually felt like this was gloopy and not really for me. It is also rather sweet but not too sickly but because I didn't like the feel of it in my mouth I only drunk half a bottle, to be honest even the children didn't like it which is rather strange as they normally like milkshake especially chocolate ones.





          I personally not recommend this milkshake as not only did I not enjoy the taste or feel in my mouth and neither did my too little girls. It is also one of the most expensive milkshakes that I have seen around so considering what I have mentioned I would rate this milkshake a 2 out of 5. There are many people who like this milkshake but I suppose its all down to preference, as everybody is different but you never know unless you try it.




          Thank for taking the time to read my review, it is very much appreciated and I hope my review was useful for you to make your mind up if this milkshake is for you or not. Thanks again.

            Chocolate flavoured milk from Frijj - gloopiness indeed!

            On a snowy day like today, there's nothing more refreshing than sitting down, snuggling up and having a nice mug of hot chocolate. Sadly, I don't have any, so instead, I got this out of the fridge. Frijj do a number of creamy and gloopy drinks, all milk based, and some of the various chocolate ones are my favourites.

            This chocolate one seems to have an abundance of choc and milk combined to make it extremely drinkable and with a nice, rich, balanced aftertaste. The bottle itself is quite chunky and soft and squidgy, contoured to make it easy to hold. The top has a seal that you unravel from the top, and then a lid that needs slight turning to screw off. Inside, you can tell how gloopy it is by the fact that there's a film bubble at the top of the bottle. You know, as if you're doing the dishes and you get that bubble effect that's see through but shimmering. This is the same, only it's choc flavoured milk as opposed to soap!

            The drink itself is very creamy, which doesn't necessarily bode well for you calory counters out there. If you couldn't care less about calories, then this is fabulous, and one of the best brands of flavoured milk drinks I have had. This choc flavour is one of the nicest, although it's not quite as moreish as the choc fudge brownie one, which is divine.

            This drink comes in a 500ml bottle, and usually costs anywhere between £1.50 or £2. Just before Xmas, Tesco were doing these on special offer for £1, and I believe on occasion other places will do offers. I know that Somerfield did an offer for the latest chocolate mint flavour. However, expect this to come in at around the £1.50 mark. It's not too bad a price considering it's really nice.

            Nutritionally, it turns out I was right about the calories. If you have the whole of this 500ml bottle (which is easy to do!), then you're looking at nearly 400 cals! You get 60g of carbs and a fair amount of protein. In terms of the ingredients, most of the drink is milk, with perhaps a quarter of the milk content being full fat, and the rest semi-skimmed. There is cocoa powder and buttermilk powder, which no doubt gives it its gloopiness, and naturally, a lot of sugar.

            Overall, it's a lovely product, but probably not good to have it on a regular basis. Lovely tasting drink, really tastes lovely, and here comes the best bit: you can heat it up! Frijj have started making the drink in microwaveable bottles. There is no discernible difference to the bottles, and perhaps they were always microwaveable, but putting this in the microwave and pouring it into a mug, I could have sworn I had made a proper hot chocolate. It tasted glorious.

            So, a lovely drink, delicious hot or cold, but just beware the calories and sugar content. Good source of calcium and energy, but don't overdo it. Enjoy. Yum yum!

              Well worth trying

              Dairy Crest Friji Chocolate Milkshake

              Description: Manufacturer: Dairy Crest / Type: Milkshake.


              Like so many of us, I have eaten and drank much more than I should have done over the holiday season and so, am trying to cut back and be healthy to shift those pounds that I have gained.

              Unfortunately, this means that I have to give up some of my favourite indulgences, and one of those at the top of that list has to be these Frijj milkshakes. I must confess that I am going to miss these because they are absolutely delicious and do seem like a treat!

              A 500ml bottle of this milkshake will normally cost around £1.50 but they have recently been on offer in my local Tesco's so it is worth keeping an eye out for them. They come in white plastic bottles with brown cow hide printing all over them. You can find them in most chiller cabinets, be sure to shake it before drinking.

              The milkshake is so indulgent that you know it can't be good for you! It is extremely thick and has a real chocolate taste, not the synthetic flavouring that some brands have. Each mouthful is rich and delicious and a bottle is actually quite filling because it is so thick.


              Typical values per 100g are as follows;

              Energy 77kcal
              Protein 3.9g
              Carbohydrate 12.6g
              Fat 1.2g
              Vitamin B12 0.4µg 2µg
              Calcium 135mg

              Ingredients are as follows;

              Skimmed milk (68%)
              Whole milk (22%)
              Sugar
              Fat reduced cocoa powder
              Buttermilk powder
              Modified maize starch
              Stabilisers

              I really like these milkshakes but they are quite bad for you as very high in calories so while I recommend that you try them, I don't recommend that you do it too often!

                Disadvantages

                .

                OK, now I know that this actually says chocolate Friji, but I am going to review the chocolate fudge brownie flavour, as they dont seem to have the flavour on here.

                There are lots of different flavours and brands of milokshake around, but I believe that Friji is by far the thickest, the most tasty and the sweetest all in one go. Although I suppose it would be nicer as it is that little bit more expensive. At £1.01 (in sainburies) it is quite expensive for what it is. At first, I was a little wary at spending this much on some flavoured ilk, but when my brother came home one day and started raving about how nice friji was, I thought that I had to buy some.

                This is the only flavour of the friji milkshake that I have ever tasted, and what I can say about it is that it is very sweet, although it is also very rich, so overall, it is exactly what a milkshake should be like. The milkshake I usually had before buying this was yazoo. Comparing the two together, you get to see how different they really are. For a start yazoo is alot thinner, and does not give you the richness.

                This milkshake (as it says on the bottle) can be drank either hot or cold. You be a little wary of this, but although I haven't actually tried this yet, I am very tempted.

                The nutritional information for this drink (for100g) is:

                energy - 87kcal (for the chocolate it is 77kcal)
                protein - 3.6g
                carbohydrate - 13.4g
                of which sugars - 12.4g
                fat - 2.1g
                of which saturates - 1.3g
                fibre - nil
                sodium - trace

                This is a 500g bottle and whether you are thirsty or not, it will last you for ages, because of it's richness.

                It is definately a good buy, and I will certainly be buying it in the future.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Great alternate to the day to day drinks

                  Friji are one of the best milkshakes around and is available in most shop and supermarkets, available in loads more flavours than they once used to be. Chocolate being my favourite here a suprisingly thirst quencher to say its not a fizzy or cordial drink too.

                  The look?
                  These come in white plastic bottles so you will not be able to peek inside I'm afraid. These look a little bit like a modern milk churn in shape. The chocolate milkshake is quite a thick consistency and is very smooth. If you poor this into a glass it looks even thicker.

                  Price?
                  A 500ml bottle sells for around 95 pence depending on where you buy it from. About 16pence per 100 mls.

                  About the Taste?
                  Rich smooth tasting milkshake, this really tastes of good quality, a good balance not too milky or chocolatey. A fairly thick consistency but not too thick ,a bit like a thicker milk. To say this is 70% skimmed milk it tastes chocolatey

                  Healthy?
                  450 kcal per bottle, 1 gram of fat per 100 mls. 3.5 grams of protein per 100 mls, less than 1% fat which is good

                  Conclusion?
                  Great tasting, tastes of good quality, chocolatey

                  Dairy Crest Friji Chocolate Milkshake

                  Description: Manufacturer: Dairy Crest / Type: Milkshake

                  Chances are that you have seen this milkshake. It is available from shops, supermarkets and petrol stations and found in the chilled section. It comes in a variety of flavours but there is absolutely no doubt in my mind, that the chocolate one is the best!

                  This comes in a white plastic bottle with what looks like brown cow print all over it. It has the brand name is black lettering on the front of the bottle and a crew on plastic lid.

                  It comes in big 500ml bottles, which cost around £1.50. These milkshakes can often be found on offer so it is worth keeping your eyes open and treating yourself when they are.

                  Nutritional info is as follows:

                  Typical values per 100g
                  Energy 77kcal
                  Protein 3.9g
                  Carbohydrate 12.6g
                  Fat 1.2g
                  Vitamin B12 0.4µg 2µg
                  Calcium 135mg

                  The ingredients are as follows:

                  Skimmed milk (68%)
                  Whole milk (22%)
                  Sugar
                  Fat reduced cocoa powder
                  Buttermilk powder
                  Modified maize starch
                  Stabilisers

                  This milkshake should be shaken before you drink it. It is incredibly thick and creamy, with a really chocolaty taste. It is deliciously sweet without being sickly and you can easily drink the whole bottle without feeling like it is too much.

                  The chocolate taste is delicious, just the way that a good milkshake should taste. this certainly isn't the cheapest brand available to buy but this is definitely the best bottled milkshake that I have tried, and well worth paying the extra for!

                    Yummy - try it yourself!

                    I recently fancied something other to drink at work, so I popped in to the petrol station next door and found myself staring at the usual stuff, water, fizzy drinks, juice drinks and thought I just fancy something different. That's when I saw the Friji chocolate milkshake staring back at me from the shelf.

                    I have never heard of this brand before and think they mainly sell in garages etc rather than multi-packs in supermarkets. I have not seen them in Asda but have never really looked specifically. In the garage next to me it cost £1.40.

                    The bottle is white with brown (supposed to be) chocolate splodges on it, I suppose the way a cow does. It contains a mammoth 500 ml (approx) and tastes great. I tend to drink half one and have the other half the next, as there is a lot to it. It tastes thick and very chocolately, I am not overly keen on milk and it doesn't taste too milky.

                    It needs a good shake before you drink it, otherwise it can be a bit lumpy, but still yummy.

                    There are no artificial flavours and it is marketed as the tastiest ever (I agree - if I find something that trumps it I will update you all).

                    The ingredients are:
                    Skimmed milk (68%)
                    Whole milk (22%)
                    Sugar
                    Fat reduced cocoa powder
                    Buttermilk powder
                    Modified maize starch
                    Stabilisers

                    It says it has less than 1.5% fat in it, I don't know if this is saturated or not as it doesn't say, which is not good for those of us calorie counting. It is also Gluten free and contains milk (obviously) and Vitamin B12.

                    I really like this drink and would recommend it, it really fills you up and stops you snacking, I know it's not the best substitute but it's a yummy one.
