Wink Frozen Dessert Review
I love trying new products, especially when they are healthy products. I see a lot of delicious products on instagram and I want to go out and buy them all (and then I'd be very very broke).
Wink was one of the products that kept popping up in my instagram feed. A lot of my vegan and food allergy friends kept raving about it and I definitely wanted to try it, but I couldn't find it anywhere. Well, I finally found it at an organic market (the same place I found Elli Quark) and knew I had to try it- and no this is not a sponsored post, I paid for it with my own money!
The first thing I noticed was there were a lot more flavors of Wink than there was of Arctic Zero. The flavors are different too, there's cake batter, cocoa dough, etc. Again it is pricey, so it's not something I would ever buy on a regular basis because I'm a broke college student.
As for the taste and consistency, it tasted very similar to Arctic Zero. The texture was the same too. Macro wise Wink has a bite more carbs than Arctic Zero, but the two are very comparable. Allergy wise its free of the top 7 allergies, seen in the above photo, and it's vegan.
Overall, I would give cocoa dough a 8.5/10. If you're expecting it to be exactly like ice cream it's not. The texture is different and it's not as creamy, but if you're looking for a healthy alternative then this is right on the money.
I would definitely recommend Wink if you've got a sweet tooth or are looking for a healthy snack, but it is almost $5 a container, so it's pricey (be warned!). As a special treat I'd be willing to pick it up and for all food allergy people out there there are options for healthy desserts or snacks :)
