I don’t know if anyone else remembers those pyramid shaped frozen fruit treats that came out in the 80’s, but Jo and I used to eat them for a ‘healthier’ treat since they were made from fruit. Hey, it beats feeding your kids candy as a treat. Though, I have no doubt the ones we ate back then were loaded with high fructose corn syrup…so maybe it wasn’t better, who knows (I certainly don’t remember, I can’t even remember the real name – we called them Fruit Juicies). Perhaps a bite of dark chocolate would’ve been better, but I digress. I recently placed an order through Cosmo’s and ordered these new items on the vegan shelf – Smooze Fruit Ice. And can I just say, WOW! These were super delicious, and reminiscent of the frozen triangles Jo and I used to eat as kids – but much healthier! I tasted the coconut+pineapple flavor, and it tastes exactly like a quality piña colada (without the rum of course)! And at only 70 calories a treat, you can’t find a more delicious frozen treat (though Palapa bars might come in neck-n-neck)…it gives you the frozen (and somewhat creamy) satisfaction ice cream would give you, but with less calories. I could even see myself giving one to Mocha on a painfully hot summer day as a nice, refreshing treat! I have no doubt my next order will contain something from Smooze. I can see this holding a standard, Liz Lovely place in my orders. (If Ken, Leigh, Cosmo, or Miles from Cosmo’s is reading this, I’m dying to try out the guava and passionfruit flavors too!) To enjoy, you just cut off the tops, squeeze the bottom, and slurp the goodness inside! Even the experience of cutting, squeezing, and slurping was exactly how I remember it as a child! Thank you Smooze and Cosmo’s!
