I've never quite fallen in love the Frijj range of milkshakes, mainly because I've never been sure how to pronounce the name. These new flavours, promoted by a weird circus cat and a cross dressing dog, purport to be Raspberry Jam Doughnut flavour (ACTUAL FLAVOUR: Raspberry) and Honeycomb Choc Swirl flavour (ACTUAL FLAVOUR: Chocolate)
They have the usual consistency of a barium meal, and taste almost identical to the traditional chocolate
(strangely enough, both flavours have almost EXACTLY the same ingredients)
At least you can look at a dog with an umbrella or a cat banging a drum before or after drinking them. (not during).
Frijj have given each of their new characters a distinct personality. They are:
Hugo Meeow “the serious, balshy, dapper, tough one” Pablo Pooch “the poser and slightly flamboyant one of the bunch” Magnus Monkee (NOT AVAILABLE IN MY TESCOS) “the mischievous, cheeky chappy of the group”
Hugo, Pablo and Magnus. They sound like a bunch of tossers, don't they? Oh Hugo, you're so balshy! Magnus, stop being so mischievous! And Pablo, you poser, is that a tea-cosy on your head? And an umbrella! Are you being slightly flamboyant again?
Has anyone actually ever been described as "slightly flamboyant" before? Is that possible?
"Hey, what's Pablo like?" "Well, he's a tiny bit ostentatious, but he keeps it mostly to himself."
And yes, before you ask I did try mixing them to make a Choc Raspberry Jam Honeycomb Doughnut flavour.(ACTUAL FLAVOUR: chocolate again).
But what you really want to know is did I mix TURBO Tango with Strawberry Jam Chocolate Honeycomb Doughnut flavour Frijj?
Yes I did.
