Now that we have discussed how great WINK is for you, let’s talk about taste and texture two BIG deals for me when it comes to ice cream as well as most other foods.
After thawing a few minutes, it has a soft serve ice cream texture which I LOVE. And after taste testing each flavor all were absolutely delicious and I even forgot that it wasn’t the real deal!
Let’s go through each flavor:
Cake batter was smooth and creamy and it tasted like a frozen version of my favorite vanilla boxed cake! Brought back some wonderful childhood memories! And since it was my real birthday the other day, it paired perfectly with my birthday cupcake!
Choco mint was Jake’s favorite flavor! It has the dark chocolate flavor he loves and with a touch of mint, it was amazing.
Iced Latte was my favorite! I am a coffee snob and I am not afraid to admit it, and the Iced Latte tasted like one of my fancy coffee drinks I order out! So good!
Cinnamon Bun was a close second to my favorite because I LOVE cinnamon. It really did taste like a frozen version of our favorite Sunday breakfast treat!
Cocoa Dough was very chocolatey smooth and quite delectable!
Overall, WINK Frozen Desserts gets two thumbs up and I will most certainly recommend them to anyone!
I also made some delicious cookies to make ice cream sandwiches with my WINK desserts! They were AMAZING!
