Frijj Strawberry Milkshake
Advantages: Texture, Taste, Filling
Disadvantages: A lil addictive
When it comes to finding bargains in petrol garages they are often impossible, though at the moment the local Spar garage is current selling 500ml bottles of Frijj Milkshakes for just 64p so it was time to stock up on the gorgeous and wonderful drinks. Coming in a mainly white bottle with pink and brown parts on the bottle, it promises to be a "Thick and smooth" milkshake and as a fan of milkshake that's how they should be done. Thick, thirst quenching, filling and smooth and at just 64p it's hard to resist the temptation that the description gives. With apparently 50% of the UK market share Frijj must be doing something right, but quite what exactly?
Before you open the bottle you are advised to shake it well, to help mix it properly and then when it;s opened you can get a nice smell of strawberry emanating from the bottle top (a screw top). When poured into a glass it has a thick creamy texture with a pink milky colour that sticks a little bit to the glass when you are done. Though sadly the drink is surprisingly easy to drink and you swiftly find yourself finishing it off before realising that it's gone. The smooth, filling texture of the drink is brilliant but what stands out is the flavour. Pure bliss in a a bottle with strong yet smooth strawberry undertones that don't over power the milkiness of the drink. The drinks 500ml bottle sadly only lasts minutes at best, and that's if you manage to have the bottle to yourself rather than needing to share it.

The drink contains no artificial colours, no artificial flavours as well as being gluten free and "suitable for vegetablists" but does contain milk and natural colours.
Overall this is a drink well worth 64p any time of the week it's filling and delicious with a fantastic full flavour. Though there are other options there is probably only one set of milkshakes that can compete (Shaky Moo's which are a shop that are willing to make milkshakes out of almost anything). What makes these impressive is that they are widely available, they taste fantastic and are at a fantastic price. Although some people may not want a strawberry one the other flavours on offer are worth a try as well.
