Taste Test: Sprinkles Frozen Frosting Shots

Love frosting? Well, I have news for you! For the Summer, everyone's favorite bakery, Sprinkles, has launched a new product: frozen frosting shots. Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. For $.75, at all Sprinkles locations, you can actually purchase a shot of frosting that's frozen. Earlier this week, we were lucky enough to receive a large sample of the sugary treats from Sprinkles. To find out how they taste,

.

The shots come in mini paper cups with rounded pointy tips. They come in five flavors: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, and cream cheese. There is nothing special about the frosting, it's the exact same frosting that they use on the cupcakes. When paired with the moist cake, the frosting is creamy and delicious. On its own, however, it's hard to stomach all 2-3 ounces of it. It's very sweet, thick, and extremely buttery.

Although freezing it does provide a nice cooling texture that's similar to ice cream, I could not get through an entire shot. Frosting lovers might go nuts over these, but I was left longing for cake.

Have you ever had a shot of frosting? Is this something you would love to try?

I think the idea is cute but I am not a sugar fan. I have a low tolerance for sugar, too much of it and I get sick. I would definately do this idea, but like somone else has already stated, I would use yogurt and I would spike it with a little alcohol treat for a party.

These were so cute, and I am a frosting lover (or thought I was) but I could barely get through a half!

Too much sugar! I'd get sick!

Wow, that's a crazy idea! I live in Australia so I can't try it, but I totally would. I have to admit to being a bit of a sugar addict!

Fun idea, but, not for me. I would want the follow up of cake :)

i doubt i'll try this, i like frosting but not THAT much! And apparently I'm alone, but I LOVE sprinkles. I think they are some of the best cupcakes around!

Yummy frosting. My favorite part of a cake or cupcake. I would totally try this.

the frosting is the best part. a little taste instead of a giant cupcake would be delicious and way less guilty! i might have to cruise on over there soon.

Embarrassed to admit that I WANT THIS. I will try making my own. I am the kind of person who will eat all the frosting and ditch the cake!

Although I enjoy frosting, these just look like too much sugar and butter for me. Interesting, though.

I thought these were spiked with alcohol at first lol! I love eating frosting plain, but I don't think I could eat that much without getting sick.

Sign me up! The frosting is always my favorite part of the cake.

I am not a fan of frosting in general. People should try making cakes that are good on their own, so you don't need to cover them in it. I don't think I could try more than 2 licks of these, either.

I have been doing this for years. Keeping frosting in the freezer makes it last longer. Definitely couldn't eat a whole shot at once though.

If you follow Sprinkles on Twitter or Facebook, they give you secret code words to get the frosting shots (and various cupcakes) for free!

Eww, just think of all the sugar and fat. I'd rather have ice cream or a sorbet if I want to treat myself to something frozen. I don't get why people go crazy over Sprinkles though, while they look nice, they're nothing special. And their philosophy is a bit strange.

Thanks for adding to the high-fat, obese American diet. How about some frozen yogurt instead?

I usually scoop off most of the frosting off of cupcakes, even their delicious Red Velvet...I could go for a cupcake about now :)

My teeth ache just thinking about all that sugar. Ick. IMO, their frosting is alright, but nothing too special. Same with their cupcakes. Good, but overpriced.

Sounds great! I LOVE frosting! Probably REALLY bad for you though...

I like plain frosting, but not frozen...that would be a little weird to me. I actually like to take some chocolate frosting and put it between two graham crackers...YUMMY!
