Nekter Free Skoop Night

Fro-yo girl here. Nekter has just launched a new product called Skoop, available in two flavors, Chocolate Bliss and Viva Vanilla. It’s scoopable and can be topped with healthy toppings. Skoop is poured into a vertical batch freezer and scooped out.

“Skoop by Nekter is a handcrafted frozen treat, made fresh in small batches using creamy cashew milk and clean, plant-based ingredients. It's dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free, yet full of delicious flavor.” It's all natural. A 5-ounce serving of Skoop has about 180 calories.

One Skoop is $4.25 and you can add 3 toppings for $1. The toppings include chocolate drizzle, vegan chocolate chips, cacao nibs, strawberries, blueberries, coconut flakes, hempseed granola and gluten-free granola.

To introduce Skoop, Nekter hosted Free Skoop Night on June 9, 2017.

I tried Viva Vanilla which is made with Tahitian vanilla, cashew milk, honey, coconut sugar, agave nectar and a pinch of salt. Skoop was creamy but it was also very soft. Perhaps this was because of the long line of people and the need to make a fresh batch of vanilla. Maybe it wasn’t given enough time to freeze. I didn’t enjoy the melted texture. The vanilla flavor was strong but I didn’t taste much else, other than sweeteners. While Pressed Juicery Freeze tends to be too icy, it is firm and that’s better than runny. Freeze also has more flavor, is refreshing and has better toppings. I also prefer Pressed’s juices to Nekter’s.

While all Nekter units will serve Skoop, only about half of them currently have Skoop.

3 out of 5 stars.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
