Frijj - Thick Flavoured Milkshakes, yummy!
Member Name: joe_purdy
Advantages: Good value for money and contains calcium and vitamin B12
Disadvantages: Contains alot of sugar
I've always been a fan on milkshakes and being on steroids long term because I have crohns disease can make your bones very brittle so milk being a great source of calcium is an added bonus for me! Frijj is a chilled milkshake which can be found in the fridge department in stores, it comes in a variety of different flavours including the original strawberry, chocolate and banana as well as more outgoing flavours which include fudge brown and honeycomb. A recent new release is vanilla flavour which is now one of my favourites; it just reminds me of the taste of a mini milk ice lolly!
==About the product==
Frijj milkshakes come in one size, a 500ml bottle. Frijj is advertised as being low in fat - less than 1%, suitable for vegetarians, gluten free, no artificial flavourings or colourings and a source of calcium and vitamin b12.
The milkshake comes in quite a thick bottle and has a screw top lid which I find quite handy as I don't always want to drink a full one of these in one go although once it has been opened it should be consumed within 3 days and kept in a fridge at all times. The bottles are a plain white colour with coloured splats depending on the flavour - yellow for banana, red for strawberry and brown for chocolate.
Ingredients include; Skimmed Milk (75%), Whole Milk (18%), Sugar, Buttermilk Powder, Modified Maize Starch, Flavouring (different depending on the flavour you have chosen), Stabilisers (Carrageenan, Guar Gum), Colour (Mixed Carotenes).
A 500ml bottle contains 335 calories, 50.5g of sugar and 2.5g of fat, I know these statistics are not necessarily the best although they have such a lovely taste and the fact there so thick makes them different from other milkshakes I've tried.
I normally purchase these milkshakes from Tesco although they are also available in asda and Morrison's and I've also seen these in most newsagents/ off license stores. They retail at £1.20 each although I find these on offer in at least one of the big supermarkets at all times, the best offers I have found recently is 50p in Morrison's and the end of last year they were buy one get two free in Tesco so I stocked up then! They have quite a good sell by date from when you buy them to when they must be consumed, its normally about 3-4 weeks which is great length of time.
I really enjoy drinking these milkshakes and in particular I like the thick yet very smooth texture, my favourite flavour is vanilla or chocolate although I would recommend all the flavours to you. It's worth a mention though that before opening you must give them a good shake to give them an even texture. I would recommend these to you as I think they are good value for money, the money aspect which is not so appealing is the amount of sugar that is inside these which is quite alot!
Summary: Great tasting thick milkshake
