summer snack review {3}

biggby-mint-chip-edit
hello 

it’s summer snack review {3}! 

today we are reviewing Biggby Coffee’s Mint Chip Freeze 

same rating as before, 1 poor, 5 fabulous:

  • overall taste:  5  (if you love mint chocolate chip ice cream–you will love this!) 
  • added goodies:  4  (this was loaded with chocolate pieces, a spoon would have been better than a straw towards the end and the whip cream was super…the drizzle of chocolate could have been a tad more, but can there ever be enough?) 
  • size/value:  3  (i think we paid around $4.50 for a tall–which is a small….pretty pricey…although it is good)
  • “coffee-ness”:  doesn’t apply to this drink 
  • nutrition facts:  2  ( 677 calories / 30 grams of fat / 92 carbs / 81 grams of sugar)  oh my gosh! 677 calories for a small!  good thing my husband & i split it!!!!!  yikes!!!!

Over-all rating of Biggby Coffee’s Mint Chip Freeze:  3.5 

special note:  i was NOT able to locate ingredients on the Biggby website, so if food allergies are a concern for you, please contact your local Biggby before trying the Mint Chip Freeze.

have you had one?  what did you think?  let me know!

welcome to the second edition of “summer snack review”!! 

today we are discussing Wendy’s new Frosty-cino 

here’s how it rated…scale of 1 to 5, (1 poor, 5 fabulous):

  • overall taste:  2 (i thought it tasted like any ol’ chocolate shake)
  • added goodies: 1 (a tad of whipped cream with a tiny drizzle of chocolate…not even close to the picture)
  • size/value: 2 (i think i paid around $2.49 for a small….) (only available in small or large) 
  • “coffee-ness”: 1 (i don’t remember even tasting hardly any coffee-flavor…bummer)
  • nutrition facts:  2 (390 calories / 10 grams of fat / 62 carbs / 52 grams of sugar)  i guess that’s not too bad as far as calories go…it is better than their other new item that we reviewed previously!

Over-all rating of Wendy’s Frosty-cino: 1.6

special note: according to Wendy’s site it does not list peanut products in the ingredients, so it should be safe for those with a peanut allergy (you may want to investigate further). 

have you tried one?  

did you like it?

welcome to the first edition of “summer snack review”. 

i will be your guide this evening….and official taster & reviewer.

tonight we will be discussing Wendy’s new Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty, (chocolate). 

being a chocolate lover, i opted for this frosty with a chocolate base.  it is also available in vanilla base

the picture above shows one represented at the bottom of the picture, the one without a straw. 

here’s how it rated (scale of 1-5) (1 poor 5 being is was fabulous):

  • overall taste:  4  (i enjoy the regular Wendy’s chocolate frosty, so this was even better)
  • added goodies: 3 (there were a lot of toffee bits in it, but i always enjoy more crunchy chunks in my ice cream)
  • size/value:  2(i didn’t even look at the price, to tell you the truth, but i did ask what sizes are available and it only comes in one size…..i don’t like that….i like options….if i’m hungry and wanting a big snack, i would like to be able to get a medium or large….if i’m keeping my calories low that day and only want a small, i want that option also.  this one i shared with my hubby and it wasn’t quite enough for both of us. lol)
  • “coffee-ness”: 4(an excellent balance of coffee flavor and chocolate.)
  • nutritional facts: 1  (550 calories / 21 grams of fat / 83 carbs / 68 grams of sugar) YIKES!  (not sure i would waste that many calories on this snack.)

over-all rating for the Wendy’s Coffee Toffee Twisted Frosty, (chocolate): 2.8

special note:  this snack contains items that are made in a facility that processes or uses peanut products…this item is NOT safe for those people with a peanut allergy.

have you tried one yet? 

what did you think?
