Akemi Ice Popsicles Review

Fro-yo girl here. I found another yogurt flavored popsicle. Akemi ice popsicles are from Taiwan. They’re very pretty with four flavors in one popsicle. Each color is a different flavor. There are eight flavor stripes per popsicle. The green is muskmelon, the red is cranberry, the orange is mango and the white is yogurt. The popsicles are flavored with real fruit juice.

The popsicle is soft and light with a texture similar to Yasso and Yolato bars (or think of fruit sherbet). It’s refreshing and melts in your mouth.

The fruity flavors are distinct but not intense. Mango is the sweetest. Muskmelon sounds exotic but its cantaloupe. The cranberry stripe was my favorite as it had a bit of tanginess. The yogurt stripe was the worst because it tasted like a sweetened yogurt drink (e.g., Yakult) and reminded me of the taste of children’s chewable aspirin.

Ingredients: water, sugar, fructose, milk powder, lactic acid, malic acid, cantaloupe juice, mango juice, cranberry juice, emulsifier, food color, etc.

3.5 out of 5 stars.

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