It stated on the bottle label that this Frijj White Choc Raspberry Swirl Milkshake was one of their "supremely thick and smooth range" of milkshakes, so I gave it a really good shake before opening. After unscrewing the lid and peeling back the metal top, I took a good long whiff of the white milky liquid inside. It smelt like raspberry ripple ice cream. My tastebuds began to salivate immediately. I love raspberry ripple, but sadly I just don't get to eat it that often. I used to eat it as a child at my Aunty's house after she'd almost filled me with Walker's Ready Salted crisps and Cadbury's Animal Biscuits. As the rhyme goes; "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Call it lack of heat in this country or the fact that my old teeth scream at me rather than ice cream. I just don't enjoy ice cream like I used to.
Well I have something here that's cool and not ice cream cold. It tastes reminiscent of raspberry ripple without the sharpe head freeze and kick in the teeth feeling that ice cream can give me. I know you're probably thinking I could do with a trip to the dentist. You probably right. I will go next month I promise. This raspberry swirl flavour had a smooth white chocolate creaminess that took me away from the raspberry ripple ice cream flavour slightly. But that was okay. I didn't mind at all. I was basking in the flavours of raspberries and white chocolate working together in a relaxing fashion to get me, the drinker, relaxed, cushioned even. Lying on a king size bed of fluffy raspberry pillows and milky sheets of creamy sweet white chocolate. Mmm... who needs ice cream? And that dentist can stick his drill!
