Review of Swedish Glace dairy free strawberry ice cream lollies

I have to confess to being a tad excited about the sudden availability of new dairy free ice creams that are becoming readily available. My personal mission is of course to try all of these and review them on my little humble blog. I recently tried and fell in love with Tesco’s choc sticks, oh my goodness is all I will say. So when I finally managed to get my hands on these Swedish Glace lollies I couldn’t wait to dive in.

I liked the simple blue packaging with the picture of the chocolate covered strawberry lolly. I knew what to expect and couldn’t wait to open that box.

The allergens are clearly highlighted in the ingredients list with soya in bold. To the front of the box it is clearly highlighted that the lollies are made with soy. They are clearly labelled as being dairy, gluten and lactose free whilst being suitable for vegetarians.

On opening the box I was greeted by 5 medium sized lollies in a simple white packaging with gold hearts. I personally liked the design. On removing this I discovered my chocolate covered lolly. I initially took a step back as it looked like milk chocolate and I found myself re-checking the ingredients even though they were safe. I expected a dark chocolate coating. On biting into the lolly I got a faint crunch from the chocolate coating followed by the soft ice cream centre. The chocolate layer was a lot thinner than I had hoped and I therefore I didn’t get the chocolate fix that I had hoped. The ice cream itself underneath was a pretty pale pink colour. It was slightly light in consistency with a faint strawberry flavour. The subtle strawberry flavour worked well in combination with the chocolate outer coating. The combination of textures from the slight crunchiness of the outside chocolate layer and the smooth ice cream worked really well together.

So would I recommend these lollies if you follow a dairy free, gluten free, lactose free or a vegetarian diet yes I would. It’s great to have a chocolate coated lolly that is readily available. If I am honest I would have liked a thicker chocolate layer to the outside. Maybe that is me just being picky. So thank you Swedish Glacé for producing these lollies. I am sure that these lollies will make both adults and children alike very happy.

    • Hi, yes I have had this ice cream for several years thank you. It used to be the only one I could find. Do you remember their neapolitan ice cream ? That was my favourite sadly no longer available. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, Chloe.

  1. Love these lollies! It’s great that there is a dairy free alternative to a Magnum. My dairy allergic daughters lapped these up and all I heard when they were eating them was “Mmmmmm…yuuuum…”!
    I have to say as a dairy tolerant person I’d happily eat these without thinking they taste any different to a normal ice cream. I also like to think they are a healthier option to a Magnum as they’re smaller😉.

    • Hi Kazza, I may be a grown up but I have to confess to making the same noises as your daughter when eating these. They are indeed like a mini Magnum. I like your logic that they are healthier because they are smaller. Does that mean I can’t eat two in a row ? 😊.

    • Hi Yasmina thank you for your kind comment. I may have had one just now making the most of the beautiful weather. They certainly are delicious, Chloe.
