Wink Frozen Desserts: 4 improved fab flavors

wink20131

Wink has done it again! On the verge of hitting even more stores, Gabe and the team have been hard at work dreaming up the most delectable flavors, textures, and behaviors consistent with a frozen dessert.

On the verge of hitting stores and ramping up production, Wink gives dessert fans everywhere so many things to be thankful for: an improved texture, an even better flavor, even less carbohydrates than before, and the most terrific, creamiest product yet–and all for only 25 calories per serving.

Wink frozen desserts still packs all of the terrific qualities of an ice cream into little pint-sized containers, but what you’ll also not be able to believe is these desserts are pleasant and are also:

  • Dairy-Free
  • Egg-Free
  • Fat-Free
  • Sugar-Free
  • GMO-Free
  • Vegan
  • Gluten-Free
  • Nut Free
  • Soy Free

We had so much fun with these desserts during the Super Bowl, sampling and trying different things with them. This time around, we went with floats. We partnered Wink with a erythritol/stevia soda, and were extremely pleased.

Wink Cake Batter Root Beer Float

Cake Batter ♥♥♥♥♥
A creamy foray into butter and vanilla, each creamy bite is so delicious, you’ll think you enjoyed guilt-free cake and ice cream in every bite. The color is the most beautiful yet, with an off-white, lightly speckled, vanilla bean moment. Ingredients: Filtered water, vegetable glycerin  vegetable protein, natural flavors, agave extract (inulin), tapioca flour, baking soda, organic stevia extract, xanthan gum, guar gum, monkfruit extract. Nutritional information per 1/2 cup (each carton has 4 servings): Calories: 25, Carbohydrates: 4 g, Fiber: 1 g, Sugar Alcohols: 2 g, Net Carbohydrates: 1 g, Protein: 2 g, Fat: 0 g

Cocoa-Dough ♥♥♥♥♥
Wow. A decadent, earthy, robust chocolate reminiscent of a German chocolate more than a fudge, this perfectly wonderful chocolate is a nice, not-too-sweet moment on the tongue. Its creamy texture is pleasantly surprising, considering the lack of dairy. Ingredients: Filtered water, vegetable glycerin  vegetable protein, natural flavors, agave extract (inulin), tapioca flour, baking soda, organic stevia extract, xanthan gum, guar gum, organic cocoa powder, monkfruit extract. Nutritional information per 1/2 cup (each carton has 4 servings): Calories: 25, Carbohydrates: 4 g, Fiber: 1 g, Sugar Alcohols: 2 g, Net Carbohydrates: 1 g, Protein: 2 g, Fat: 0 g

Cinnamon Bun ♥♥♥♥♥
This used to be my least favorite ice cream in terms of texture and flavor. Wink stepped it up, with a creamy, dreamy one-two punch of cinnamon and earthy, mild undertones that deliver a heavy, pleasant flavor that takes you back to breakfast, only minus the gluten. Ingredients: Filtered water, vegetable glycerin  vegetable protein, natural flavors, agave extract (inulin), tapioca flour, baking soda, organic stevia extract, xanthan gum, guar gum, cinnamon, monkfruit extract. Nutritional information per 1/2 cup (each carton has 4 servings): Calories: 25, Carbohydrates: 4 g, Fiber: 1 g, Sugar Alcohols: 2 g, Net Carbohydrates: 1 g, Protein: 2 g, Fat: 0 g

Iced Latte ♥♥♥♥♥
My absolute favorite of the four, as a fan of the flavor of coffee anyway, I am so in love with the robust, aromatic, dense textures that begged for me to pour a sugar-free cream soda. The result? A “float” that any swank coffee house would kill for, and a dessert that feels like my favorite caffeinated beverage. Ingredients: Filtered water, vegetable glycerin  vegetable protein, natural flavors, agave extract (inulin), tapioca flour, baking soda, organic stevia extract, xanthan gum, guar gum, monkfruit extract. Nutritional information per 1/2 cup (each carton has 4 servings): Calories: 25, Carbohydrates: 4 g, Fiber: 1 g, Sugar Alcohols: 2 g, Net Carbohydrates: 1 g, Protein: 2 g, Fat: 0 g

Wink Frozen Frappe Cream Soda Float

My final word? Thoroughly addicting, pleasing, and healthy, the only thing that could hurt is overdoing a good thing. Used for an occasional, healthy treat, this is one dessert that won’t invoke guilt later on. I can’t state enough what wonderful dessert floats these make with sugar-free sodas, but that even sans sodas, these ice creams will leave you licking your spoons and loving the little pink Wink icon who begs you to be his little ice cream pal.

Wink is working their tails off to bring their products to stores locally, so be sure to support their company. You’ll be glad you did–and so will they.

  1. 46.00 dollars for shipping….un no thx will wait till it comes to the west coast

  2. Wow, Wink sounds amazing! I just stalked their website for about 10 minutes straight and bought 6 pints of ice cream with your code.
    I’m sensitive to dairy, soy and eggs and personally try to avoid sugar and heavy cream/butter, which are definitely the top ingredients in ice cream.
    I’m so glad you reviewed this, I never would have heard of it even though I go to NYC all the time… I probably passed by their locations thinking they are just another ice cream shop on the block.

  3. Ivonne carlo says:

    i’ll have to wait t’ill I have my next trip to the states… Would love to try thesesssss!

  4. So excited! Just placed an order for all 4 flavors. The $46.00 for shipping might be for next day delivery. I went with the discounted 3 day delivery for $14.99. Surely they know how to pack it so it won’t melt. I’ll let you know what I think in 3 days! :)

  5. robyn herron says:

    SO expensive. wowza!

  6. I tried these a few months ago and was so disappointed. They all tasted the same and they tasted like frozen play doh! IMO….awful and I wanted them to be good!

  7. We ordered a variety pack so we could try them all! Let me tell you, they went fast! WE loved them and thought all flavors were really yummy. I can’t pick a favorite. They really hit the spot and worked well as a guilt free, delish dessert. Makes being LC easy!

  8. Ok, so I received my much anticipated order only to open it and find it had all melted completely.:( So, I refroze it and tried the much hyped re-frozen concoction only to look for a dog butt to lick to get the taste out of my mouth. OMG! Maybe the melting and refreezing changed some kind of chemical make up of this product, but it was so bad. Really disappointing

  9. Yes, I sent them an email letting them know and I have yet to receive a response.

    • Hi Heather, Gabe from Wink Frozen Desserts here.
      We contacted you on Monday, and again today about this in an attempt to make it right. Please check your spam box, as it may be filtering our emails.
      Hope to talk to you soon.

  10. Ok. So after my first disappointing experience with my melted product, I did get in touch with Gabe, who is really, really nice and went out of his way to make me happy. I just got a new delivery of wink product yesterday(lots of dry ice this time) and let me tell you I am in heaven! This stuff is yummy good! I am going to petition all my local stores into stocking this product. Thank you Jamie and Gabe for wink frozen dessert!

  11. I am also out west and the $47 shipping is killer. Would love to try it but can’t get myself to do it! Gabe- Any chance you would be able to send at a cheaper rate perhaps with a minimum order amount of some sort?! I’m dying to try it!!
