With new products on the market almost every week, it can be overwhelmingly difficult to decide which to try first. To help make the decision process slightly easier, i’ve tried and tested five products this month, find the verdict below.
1. Mars Frozen M&M’s Peanut Sticks
It’s about time Mars brought out a frozen version of their best-selling chocolate. These individually wrapped ice-cream bars contain a creamy milk chocolate ice-cream encased in a hard-chocolate outer layer with crushed m&m shell throughout with the perfect hint of peanut butter.
Verdict: So good I could eat the whole four.
Where to find: Woolworths & Coles freezer isle.
2. Gelato Messina Tim Tams: Ice Coffee
Australian biscuit brand Arnott’s have collaborated with Gelato Messina for their second Tim Tam range. This time the concept behind the three flavours was to store them in the fridge and eat them cold. The flavours included Choc Cherry Coconut, Iced Coffee and Turkish Delight.
Verdict: Personally I’m a Tim Tam Slam fan, so eating my Tim Tams straight out of the fridge was entering new territory. That said, the flavours were pretty true to their name. Ice coffee was hands down the crowd favourite.

3. Salted Caramel Almond Milk
Australia’s Own Foods Salted Caramel Almond Milk is nutty, sweet and (slightly) salty all at once. It slides down your throat with ease, exciting even the bleakest of taste buds. Best enjoyed ice cold.
Verdict: Free from gluten, dairy and soy, you’d be surprised at how good this milk tastes. Get creative and add it to a smoothie. Breakfast never sounded so good.
Where to find: IGA & Specialty Food Stores.
4. Fantastic Rice Mini’s
For an alternative to Arnott’s Shapes, these mini rice wheels are the perfect bite-sized snack. Flavours include Chicken, Honey & Soy or Chilli Salt & Pepper. For a mini wheel of rice, the flavour sure does pack a punch, and the texture is almost Twistie-like, making them hard to put down. Arguably Honey & Soy was my favourite of the two, although the Chicken was a close first.
Verdict: Ate the entire box on the car ride home from Woolworths.
Where to find: Woolworths biscuit isle.
5. The Golden Gaytime Sanga
Ditching the stick, the Golden Gaytime has been transformed into the most epic ice cream sandwich you’ll want to get your hands on ASAP. It boasts a sweet carmel-ey honey cream on the inside, and a classic biscuit cover on the outside. The biscuit has been ramped up by ‘improved crumb technology’, with a higher crumb density, so your tastebuds may go into serious shock.
Verdict: This is one serious game-changer in the ice-cream department. The perfect balance of ice cream and biscuit, I don’t know why you’re still reading this and not getting your hands on one.
Where to find: IGA freezer isle.
