Confirmed sighting: Frijj "Mount Caramel" Thick Shake
Posted: 11:26 Fri 28-02-2003. Price: two for £1. Location: Sainsburys, North London. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
reports: Not too much of a departure for the gloopy dairy drink - this new "Mount Caramel" features the great taste of slightly burnt sugar, a bit like Frijj's own "Silent Popcorn" flavour of early 2001, or Nestle's old Caramac bar. For a more detailed nutritional rundown, check out this suspiciously enthusiastic review of the range in general, which constantly reiterates Frijj's "Less than 1% fat" claim and appears to reuse the pic from the official Dairy Crest site. The main disappointment with Frijj has always been that it doesn't seem to get very much frothier when you shake it - how long before the UK can enjoy technologies like PB Foods' Cadbury Supashakes, which get thicker *and* frothier when you shake them, and have been out for ages in Australia?

Comment: Has anyone ever tried using Frijj (any flavour) as a more general milk substitute, like on cereal? Or in tea?

Comment: If you take a look at the bottle you will see a blob of caramel shaped EXACTLY like a sperm. Childish, but it made me giggle anyway.

Comment: What the hell happened to the Frijj Silent Popcorn and Chilla Vanilla flavours?? They changed my life, but now they're nowhere to be found.

Comment: I think they fell victim to the axe of the "limited edition" - just as (I think) Homer is being replaced by Krusty The Clown?
