Lohilo is a Swedish functional company that we were just introduced to this year when it dropped its collagen-infused energy beverage. While the brand does have plenty of drinks on the market, that’s not all it makes. Lohilo also has chewing gum, a variety of protein bars, and frozen treats, which we’ve had the good fortune of getting our hands on.
One of the types of products Lohilo has in its frozen lineup is high protein ice cream on a stick with two flavors to choose from in Strawberry White and Salted Caramel Almond. The macros on the latter are not too bad with 7.6g of protein, 25.6g of carbohydrates, only 4.8g of sugar, 12.8g of fat, and a calorie count of 169.
The nutrition profile on the Lohilo Protein Ice Cream Stick is not quite as lean as the likes of Barebells ice cream stick, but this one makes up for everything and more with texture and taste.
On the outside, the Lohilo Protein Ice Cream Stick looks like a typical, sugar-loaded ice cream bar or ice cream on a stick, but obviously with that healthy, moderate protein twist. As soon as you bite in, you can’t help but immediately flip the packet around to see just how much sugar it has, as the sweetness, creaminess, and flavor feel just like a sugar-loaded treat.
Both of the product’s Strawberry White and Salted Caramel Almond flavors feature a solid outside layer that is white chocolate for the Strawberry White and rich milk chocolate for the Salted Caramel. The flavor feels just like real chocolate, especially in the Salted Caramel, which also has crunchy almonds throughout, although things only get better on the inside of the ice creams.
Tucked underneath the solid chocolate layers of Lohilo’s Protein Ice Cream Sticks is creamy vanilla ice cream filled with streaks of strawberry and caramel. The Strawberry White’s strawberry taste is quite light even in the concentrated pockets of strawberry; however, it plays in nicely with the creamy vanilla ice cream and subtler white chocolate, making for a smooth ice cream treat.
As for the inside of Lohilo’s Salted Caramel Almond Protein Ice Cream Stick, it is an experience to remember. That creamy vanilla ice cream combines with sweet and salty streaks of caramel that like the chocolate outer, tastes like real sugary caramel. All of the flavors roll together to create an unbelievable, moderate protein snack that you’ll never forget.
We’ve always enjoyed the creativity and innovation of companies when it comes to foods, treats, and snacks that are moderate to high in protein, and push more for tastes than a lean set of macros. Frozen treats have always proven to be slightly better in this department, with Lohilo’s Protein Ice Cream Stick turning out to be the best overall protein snack we’ve ever tried.
The product’s combination of realistic sweetness and flavor is essentially unmatched even compared to protein treats that are much higher in sugar. It’s a truly addictive snack that’s hard to put down, with the Salted Caramel Almond being our favorite of the two flavors; however, the Strawberry White is still an incredible treat that tops most others on the market.
