Frijj – Hot(!) Chocolate Fudge Brownie Drink (Sainsbury’s)
Frijj Chocolate Brownie Milkshake has been out a fair while now, but the packaging caught my eye as it has changed a bit. It now suggests that you serve the drink hot, having zapped the contents in the Microwave. Sadly the bottle isn’t microwave friendly, which seems like a missed opportunity to me. Having said that it wasn’t too difficult to pour the liquid into two mugs and heat! There are 500ml in the bottle and a regular sized mug holds 250ml, so there is just enough for two.
Two minutes later and I removed the drinks from the microwave and was surprised that they looked a lot thinner that when they went in. I was impressed by the taste, the drink was absolutely gorgeous. It was full of flavour, lovely chocolate and nicely defined brownie and fudge. I am one of those people with a very sweet tooth, who always fancies a hot chocolate that pretty much tastes strong enough to be liquid chocolate, and I think I may have found it. Yes there is the added fudge brownie taste, but the whole drink is just yummy. Despite being sceptical about the concept of heating a milkshake, to say I am pleasantly surprised by the results must be the understatement of the year.
