Frijj Cookies & Cream Milkshake [Limited Edition] (Sainsburys)


A new Frijj milkshake flavour always makes me smile. When I saw the Oreo style cookies drawn on the bottle of this one, I was all excited for a rich dark biscuit and cream flavour. But this is not a dark flavour at all, but a sweet creamy taste, in fact the main flavour is that of wonderful rich cream. I have no idea how the bottle gets labelled with only being 2% fat, it tastes so wonderfully rich, I just naturally assumed it would have a higher fat content than that. It is however a pleasant surprise that it doesn’t.
Well I have told you about the cream section of the Cookie & Cream flavour, but I don’t have much to report on the biscuit part. There is indeed another flavour mixed in, but it is more like a mild shortbread flavour with a hint of a caramel taste too. There is no strong cookie flavour present.
That aside, I really enjoyed the drink, but I drank the bottle over the course of the day, trying to have it in small amounts to not become overwhelmed by the wonderful rich creamy flavour.

Actually that's exactly it - custard cream flavour! An oreo flavour would indeed be fab!

I'd say in fact it's really similar to the caramel/fudge special edition they often have, I'm pretty sure it's the same stuff in there! A bit of a fraud really.
