the chocolate was a huge hit! I personally like the strawberry better, but I got outvoted this time... a great after-school pick-me-up for my daughter, who tends to suffer from 3.30itis (is that trademarked?) Just one suggestion (or two actually), maybe make mixed packs so she can have chocolate and I can have strawberry without having a wee scrap : ) and could they also make them a little less expensive? But super yum, and good for them too

ok so I have finially bought the strawberry calciyum with my voucher (it took me a while to find it there - it only had a very small space available for it and the staff were not able to find it!) and my 3 children have eaten them so time to comment! Firstly, the kids were very excited about having these, big time treat for them, I used them after school on a couple of days as something special. Even my 2 year old was easily able to open them, she is not keen on milk at all (even milos), but she scoft these down and loved them. My kids (even the 2yr old) love spongbob so it is abit of a pull for them having his face on the pack xo I would purchase again, they were on special when I bought them using the voucher and I must admit that I would more likely buy them if I saw them on special. I will try the other flavours with the kids but he strawberry were delicious, a mixed box would be a good option to have, thank for picking us to try them out!

At last, a terrific way to get children to have extra milk - something sooo good for them and they will have it with no arguements, Good for all of the family - hoping to get some to try.

I'm not on this trial but have to say the CalciYum Milk Ice has been a huge hit with my daughter. We keep it as a special treat, nice to give her something thats fairly healthy that she loves, strawberry is her favourite.

We finally got some banana ones this weekend, after my daughter suddenly went on a milk ice block kick and finished off all the ones in the freezer. I was sneaky last night and stole one. The banana was really nice, a very yellow colour but tasted exactly like the banana milk we sometimes get. It was delicious. I can't wait to see my daughter eat one. Overall, I have loved the strawberry the best, banana second and chocolate last - the choc one was just too bitter for me.
nzchick - 3:49 PM on Wed-21-Mar-2012 reply | message
I couldn't help myself.. I wasn't part of this trial but couldn't get them out of my head after reading the reviews so had to try them. LOL. We got the Chocolate ones and my kids loved them! Then daddy decided he better pass them through "Dad quality control" and ate two of them! I want to try the banana one next. Thanks for all the reviews, it's always nice to find out about new treats before we buy them :)

well like others im sorry to have taken so long to review have had to remember the voucher finally i did and oh what a hit was had 2x9yr 6yr 5yr and 15mth (very messy) lol oh cant forget the biggest kid 38yr hubby lol they all loved them hubby said they were different but very nice so have been asked by all to add to the trolley again all in all i would say 10/10 for this product thanks for the chance to review the product for you
beadygirl - 9:04 PM on Wed-14-Mar-2012 reply | message
these were a real hit in my house, trialled by 6 individual kids aged 6-11 when I had extra's over for dinner! Got the chocolate box and they were demolished promptly and all given a 10/10...HOWEVER....definately would be keen on a mixed box!
Amanda30 - 2:28 PM on Tue-13-Mar-2012 reply | message
Sorry it has taken me a while to post this review. I only managed to get to a city supermarket that had these last week. I got the chocolate ones and the boys all loved them and I was happy that they were a Calciyum product, as it made the treat seem more nutritional. They were big and maybe slightly too big, as my 5 year olds didn't end up finishing the whole thing. As a Mum the one comment I would make is that the chocolate stains, that are inevitable, are very hard to get out of light coloured clothes. My youngest sons top required a lot of soaking. However, they were enjoyed and provided a extra serving of the all important calcium for little boys growing bones!
Littletoes - 5:38 PM on Sun-11-Mar-2012 reply | message
The calciyum iceblocks were a hit! We got chocolate and the boys (and mum) loved them! When it was hot and master 1 didn't want to eat they were a perfect alternative.
Would have been great if there was a mixed flavours box, I would have liked to try banana flav but was worried the kids may not like,
3lilmonkeys - 1:39 PM on Wed-7-Mar-2012 reply | message
So sorry it has taken me so long to place this review; we absolutely loved this CalciYum product. Went for the chocolate ones of course and that were great. I am guilty of having more than the kids did but they were just so good, I couldn't help it!!
gemm73 - 11:56 AM on Tue-6-Mar-2012 reply | message
Thank you so much for letting us review these, my DS 2 1/2 loved the chocolate ones, I agree with the others a mixed box is a must - major tantrums at the supermarket over the flavours, oh dear! The other thing I didnt like was that the packaging of the individual iceblocks is blue, unlike the outside cardboard box - if you had several different flavours, you wouldn't be able to tell which was which
marciawilson - 8:17 PM on Tue-28-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thank you. My 5 year old loves these. We tried chocolate as my daughters favorite. I agree to offering mixed flavours as a better option to please more family members :) yummy!
Mardi - 5:55 PM on Tue-28-Feb-2012 reply | message
YAY thanks for letting us try these..Big boy has tried the Banana flavour before (a treat on the way home from school)
It was hard to decide on a flavour that everyone would like,so I got Chocolate with our voucher & paid for a box of Strawberry , as you can see from the photo's I've loaded my boys loved them.
Only thing I would say is PLEASE make a mixed box as this would save on the expense of getting 2 or maybe 3 boxes to save arguments with the kids over what flavour to get ,while doing the shopping..
We still have a couple left in the freezer & they have been brilliant during the really hot day's we've had over the last few weekends.

Thanks again for letting us try them.

We had my Sons birthday party in the weekend and after all the kiddies went swimming we got the chcolate calci yum milk ice blocks out (as a couple of other reviews have posted I agree it would be great if they did a variety pack as choosing a flavor was hard they all sound yum, we ended up getting chcolate)All the kids loved them and thought they tasted like chcolate milk.They thought spongebob was cool on the front of the box.There was 1 ice block left in the pack did a coin toss with partner to see who gets it I won ;o).They didnt melt as much as other ice blocks do and still seem to hold there shape which was great in the hot afternoon sun.They were really yummy and very moreish.
They are a bit pricey at our supermarket but still works out cheaper buying in a box rather that buying single.Yesterday Hubby come home from work with a box he got on special for 5.99 banana flavour so will be having them tonight for dessert.
Over all 10/10 they were a hit in this family and we will be buying them again as we will have to try the strawberry next!
Thanks kidspot for this awsum trail...
olga - 1:24 PM on Tue-28-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thank you very much for letting us try the product. We got the chocolate flavour and my 16months old daughter loved it! - this is a great and much healthier alternative to sweet icecream. The only remark I would make as a Mum - I had to cut the block in two - the size is a bit big for toddlers and it melts very quickly - could be messy and not easy to finish the whole thing for the kids up to 3 years old. Overall great product and thanks again!
emily1 - 12:22 PM on Tue-28-Feb-2012 reply | message
My son adores the milkices, thanks for letting us trial them. I used to have something quite similar in the UK and have been searching for a New Zealand version for years - and here they are at last! We got the strawberry ones which we all liked alot. I saw a comment below about a variety pack. I think that would be an excellent idea as everyone has different favourites. I also wondered about making a smaller size as they are quite big for little hands. Perhaps a smaller round size would work better. Then little ones can have a whole one to themselves without filling their tummies too full.
Great to have a healthier icecream option, thanks again!
IEmzI - 3:33 PM on Mon-27-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thank you so much for letting us try these...my 3 year old son & 1 year old daughter love them. I took my son to the supermarket when our voucher arrived & let him choose which flavour he would like, he choose Strawberry. He loves the Calciyum drinks so I thought these would go down a treat & I was right. They have a great flavour, are refreshing & are very easy to eat. It's nice to know they are better for my children than alot of the other ice creams out there, but they are still just for a special treat every so often.
mamaov3 - 3:23 PM on Mon-27-Feb-2012 reply | message
Sorry for the late review...been a hectic past few weeks...My son just had his 4th birthday on Friday and had his cousin over for a sleep over, so we got the calcium milk ice in the arvo for the kiddies...the kids loved them, I got them strawberry. Needless to say there was very little mess because they didn't want to waste any hehehe...

Mr 5 said it tastes just like a milkshake mum!! With a very please look on his face!
Mr 4 said it's deeeliiissssuuussss (typo intended lol) Mum!
My 3 y/o niece says she is going to tell Mummy she would like her to buy some for her and her brothers
And my 18 month old, said nothing at all...2 busy trying to make sure she got every last drip of it lol...

We will def be getting these on hot days, always good to know it's a treat that is giving them some of the daily intakes they need!

Thanks kidspot!!
dayauon - 2:17 PM on Mon-27-Feb-2012 reply | message
my son just came back from camp and we saved some for him. he said, its good to have a lot in one box so its really for sharing and for seconds. his comment, "this is really good mum!" so i'm a happy mum even if i had to wash muddy clothes from camp. will definitely buy. thanks again!
Cocoqu - 1:14 PM on Mon-27-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks for the opportunity to review these. We had them for an after-school/kindy treat. They all enjoyed them - from my 4 year old right through to my 13 year old. I chose the chocolate flavour but wondered if a variety multi-pack would be a good idea. I liked that I was giving them a healthier choice of treat.
blake - 11:37 AM on Mon-27-Feb-2012 reply | message
Sorry, it took me this long to review. Just got back from nice holiday in Port Douglas. I bought the strawberry favlour at the end and it was great choice! We all tried it and it was a major hit not only with the kids but with us as adults as well. It tasted like strawberry milkshake - awesome! And to know it is healthier choice for the kids is a major plus! Thanks CalciYum for an awesome trial. We took kids to Zoo yesterday and bought the banana falvour and kids loved that too. I think this will be on our weekly shopping now. Be great if the multi pack offer muti flavours.

From very happy mum and kids....surfer mum.
Sammie151515 - 9:28 PM on Sun-26-Feb-2012 reply | message
We chose the Strawberry flavour. I had one first (couldn't help myself!) as Miss 4 was staying away for the night. I thought it was good! But the first lick, it broke it half. Maybe I'm a bit rough :). But definitely delicious. I was surprised that there was no Spongebob on the ice block wrappers. Before this review Miss 4 always used to asked for the Spongebob ice blocks. End result: Very nice. Great way to get calcium in. I think a mixed flavours box would be beneficial too.

me and my boys got the strawberry ones they were really yummy just like eating the yogurt frozen :) gonna get some more
kymmage - 5:50 PM on Sat-25-Feb-2012 reply | message
We tried to pick up a box of the banana ones today, but the supermarket I went to wasn't our normal one and they only had the strawberry ones. Hopefully we can find them next week instead!
maricris - 5:01 PM on Fri-24-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try and review this product. The boys already like Calci Yum Yoghurt but they have never tried CalciYum Milk Ice. So off to the grocery I went and got a Chocolate CalciYum Milk Ice. And because there were 8 in a box I get to try one too.

It tasted really good and creamy. It reminds me of the Calci Yum Yoghurt. Not too sweet either. I noticed tho that it does melt quickly. My 6 year old pointed out to me too. You have to have bowl or something to catch to drips or just eat it pretty quick. My 4 yr old on the other hand just loves it.

Over all. I think CalciYum Milk Ice is a great treat for my kiddies. I will definitely be buying them again.
ekubo - 10:05 PM on Thu-23-Feb-2012 reply | message
That link was going SOOO slow!
Anyway we got home with the icecreams, the boys couldn’t wait to dive in. Yu-um.
Lovely and smooth, mild flavour, refreshing but they do seem to melt fast (esp in a hot canty norwester).

The boys liked the spongebob (my nemesis) wrappers, I like that they’re a relatively healthy treat. We’ll be buying them again but only on special. The price is comparable to all the other icecream multipacks but we only buy them on special too.
ekubo - 9:58 PM on Thu-23-Feb-2012 reply | message
it took us a while to get onto this one, what with bad weather and naughty boys lol. But today I finally took the crew to the supermarket with voucher in hand to get a treat for after school. Then it started, ds1 wanted strawberry but ds2 doesn't like it, ds3 wanted banana but ds1 protested. In the end they settled on choc, my favourite lol. A combined pack would have saved a lot of arguing over the freezer tho.
sbooker - 4:27 PM on Thu-23-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks for the chance to review this product. I let my 3yo choose which colour she wanted and she chose pink (strawberry) she wanted one as soon as we got home and on taking her first bite in true Dora the Explorer style announced that they were 'delicioso' heehee. She really enjoyed it and wanted another one straight away! As a parent i think they are a great option for calcium intake, my DD is not keen on cold milk from a cup so i'm always looking for other ways to keep her intake up. The iceblocks are also a good size (we normally have minis) and i think are pretty good value for money. Definately a great alternative for a hot summers day and definately will be back on the shopping list once this box is gone!
karinlee - 10:26 AM on Thu-23-Feb-2012 reply | message
Well I finally went grocery shopping and brought the iceblocks for the kids. I thought I would buy the strawberrry flavour as all the kids love it. As usual just as i turn up home I hvae vistors my sister and her 3 kids, well to keep all the children happy I gave then an ice block and waited for the comments. All of the children love them even my fussy 11 year old. A mixed box would be great as then they could pick their flavours,but the kids are raving about them and the are already on the shopping list for next week.
nessee - 7:41 PM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
THANKS for the voucher for the ooooh soooo yummmy CalciYUM - we got Banana and they were very tasty with out that fake banana taste, so thats a real bonus! They were easy to find at the supermarket, just look for the super cute Spongebob Boxes. Definately like others said they do melt fast so have a bowl handy to catch the drips. I loved a sneaky nibble of my daughters so I also enjoyed the fresh, yummy banana taste. I would buy again for sure and like they are a healthy version of a tasty treat. I also would prefer a mixed flavour box.... Chocolate is next flavour we are going to try :) Thanks again for allowing us to be in your trial
:)
dayauon - 7:41 PM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
finally, we got our pack today (after several misses by me because i always forget the <br>voucher). my daughter got the chocolate flavour because she loves anything chocolate. once home, we immediately have one each. her comment, "tastes like calci-yum except its in ice block!" and "its yummy!" my comment -- its creamy tasting, cold and enough serving size. <br>my kids love calci-yum drink so the milk ice is a familiar taste. they love sponge-bob too so its a plus point. however, its pricey than the drink which we regularly buy so we <br>will buy the next one as a treat. i agree with the other suggestions for mixed <br>flavours in one box.<br>thank you for the voucher. Calci-yum is all good that's why we buy it regularly and now will add milk ice esp on hot weather is just perfect.
kymmage - 6:31 PM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
Okay, I'm back :) We bought a box of the strawberry Calciyum Milk Ices with our voucher. Strawberry was always going to be a favourite flavour for me. My daughter was very keen to try the "pink" ice blocks too. The flavour was sooo good. I absolutely adored this flavour compared to the chocolate ones.

Again, they melt pretty quickly in the sunny weather. However, eating them at home, it was much easier to clean the kid up, or avoid the spills with a cup to drip into. Keen to try the Banana now. Also agree with other reviewers re: a multi-box of the different flavours. That would be great. Also since these do melt so readily, it would make sense to have a smaller serve on a stick.
Nipper - 10:08 AM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thank you for choosing us to review, you've never seen a happier girl than when i brought a box of the strawberry Calci Yum Milk Ice home. She was grinning from ear to ear, a real hit when she ate it, said it was soooooooooo yum mum and sneaky she didnt even know it was good for her. Hubby also tried one and so did I mmmmmmmm they are good. its almost eery as they do really taste like the yoghurts, they are not too soft and dont melt so quick and the texture is smooth.
I love the fact they have so much milk in them rather than sugar.

Daughter now wants to try another flavour, maybe a mixed box would be a good idea for this as they are quite expensive and I would like to say that I'd buy them again but in reality a 2L ice cream is cheaper, so maybe as a treat as a single ice block in the shop.
stumpie - 9:30 AM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks so much for letting us review. All I can say is yum yum yum.

I got the Calci Yum Milk Ice yesterday from countdown and there weren't many boxes of them left. They must be quite popular. I love the bright colour of the box and the big cheesy spongebob grin.

My son had asked me to get the banana flavour they were all gone, the next choice was strawberry which they only had a couple of left, so I got a box of those.
They have gone done such a treat.

The texture and flavour is very creamy and smooth. They are very easy to open I love the fact that they are 80% milk and have no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners, and has the National Heart Foundation tick of approval.

Will we buy them again yes. The next flavour will be banana.

As they are a bit pricey they won't be eaten in one day lol!!!
supermums - 9:18 AM on Wed-22-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks so much for choosing us to review this great product! We were straight off to the local supermarket when the voucher arrived!

The verdict was unanimous! WE LOVE THESE! The packets were bright and appealing and stood out in the freezer making them easy to find! The kids adored the spongebob on the packet - there favourite cartoon!

We chose the chocolate flavour! It was delicious! Had the unique CalciYum taste! I love how the ice cream didn't melt fast either! Not so much of a mess to clean up!
I also like how there is 8 in a pack - we are all chocolate lovers, so it was great to have all the same flavour so no one missed out!

Thanks Kidspot and CalciYum for this great trial, will definately be buying these again!
kymmage - 9:02 PM on Tue-21-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks so much for choosing us for the review. Just prior to getting the voucher, we were out at Raglan and decided to have an ice block treat since it was so hot. I chose to get the Chocolate flavoured Calciyum Milk Ices to try. Chocolate milk is my daughter's favourite so it seemed like a good choice.

The packets are really bright. The blue makes you think of the cold icy treat you are about to eat. We are also huge SpongeBob fans in our house, so the character brand is very appropriate for us.

When we ripped into the milk ice, a delicious looking slab of frozen chocolate milk was presented. I got to eating mine pretty quickly. To be fair, the flavour was a bit too bitter chocolate for me. It definitely tasted like chocolate milk though and my daughter said "yum" at least 6 times while eating hers.

Another thing I found a little frustrating was the speed at which the milk ice started to melt. It must be the fat content in the milk or something, but these melt in the sun a lot faster than a juice or cordial frozen treat. It meant my daughter ended up covered in melty chocolate milk, which didn't look very nice. Whereas a lemonade ice block wouldn't have been noticeable.

Still, I can't deny that she personally loved the milk ice. And in a different situation, the milk ice would properly not have the same issues. I'll go and cash the coupon soon and try a different flavour too.
foxy7 - 8:00 PM on Tue-21-Feb-2012 reply | message
We used our voucher last week and the Ice Blocks lasted 3 days. My children chose the Chocolate flavour. I think a box of mixed flavours would have been a great idea, as children have different taste buds and if they can't agree then to buy two separate boxes would be an expensive option as they are quite pricey.

I don't think Sponge Bob on the packaging is a great idea, as that is a pathetic programme and I don't think a healthy product needs to be associated with a mindless tv show.

The box could also be replace with a bag, as the box was quite big and not as easy to store in the freezer.

My children were able to open the packaging easily and loved the flavour. My daughter is not a great fan of milk so this was a great way to get some calcium into her, however I'm not sure the sugar content is that healthy.

Thank you for the voucher, my children were very appreciative

I have never tried the Calci Yum Ice but have often bought the same in yoghurt form. Being so hot lately it would be lovely to give them something just as good but icy to cool them down especially as an after school snack when they arrive back red, sweaty and hot! I'd love to see how they enjoy these as they already enjoy the yoghurts. I also like the fact there is no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners. I'm sure my 2 boys would love them if they could have a try!
Glenfelik - 3:07 PM on Tue-21-Feb-2012 reply | message
Thanks Calci-Yum & Kidspot.

The kids had the option of either Banana, Chocolate or Strawberry and DD (5) and DS (3) both choose Banana.

I must admit that these are rather tasty. The kids love them and often ask for another one. They have a lovely smooth texture and a very creamy delicious taste.

They are rather pricey at full price - but as we only use them as a treat - they are still a cheaper alternative that purchasing them individually from the dairy.

A box of mixed flavours would be a great idea. As that way - everyone in the family can have their favourite.

Also if the packaging on the actual ice cream had Sponge Bob on them they may look more appealing.

I like the fact that they are high in milk as both of my kids love milk and flavoured milk.

We finally got ours today. The first trip to the supermarket we forgot to take the voucher. The second trip they had none. The third trip (today) was to a different supermarket. They only had two flavours. The children voted for the chocolate one. I usually make my own yogurt ice blocks so was shocked to see that it was $7.99 for 8. It would be much more than that to buy them individually from the dairy.

I loathe Sponge Bob so I would normally avoid buying anything with Sponge Bob on it. I was pleasing to see the individual wrappers didn't feature him.

Five of us have sampled them. My 2 girls (2 and 3 1/2), two care-kids 3 1/2 year old boys and myself. There was certainly no complaining. We all loved the taste. My youngest was the first to finish and went around to everyone begging for a bit but no one was willing to part with any of theirs. The words they used to describe it was DELICIOUS, YUM, COLD, BROWN, YUMMY, NICE.

It was quite soft so I had 4 messy faces and 8 messy hands to clean afterwards.

I think there will be a fight over the last 3 ice blocks sitting in the freezer. I will be very generous and allow hubby to have one.

I will probably buy again if on a good special but I think I prefer the price of my homemade ice blocks.

We got ours last Saturday. This was sooo good that my kids couldn't stop eating the chocolate Calciyum Milk Ice. A good thing they were thoughtful enough and had the restraint to leave 2 for me and my husband to taste. I must say, it brought back childhood memories. Love it!
KrisT - 2:13 PM on Mon-20-Feb-2012 reply | message
We used our voucher to get a pack of Strawberry Calciyum's. My daughters loved then and finished every drop ( by the end they were dripping because they eat so slowly) we ended up getting her a bowl to catch the drops and she drunk them afterwards. Could I suggest making bite size ice blocks ie: half the size for the littlies. It would be great to get twice as many in a pack and they would last a lot longer with the big families. I have bought smaller ice blocks from other brands like "jellytips" and they were just the right size. Top marks for flavour and texture. They are tasty and a great calcium boast for those not drinking as much milk as we would like :-)

we got these the other day and the kids(my 2 nephews) got stuck into them right away .. even master 8 months loves them and gets it everywhere as ya can see !!!

I received the voucher the other day,and my kids were eager to try them. I decided to go with the chocolate flavour as that's the one the kids wanted first. I was a bit shocked to see the price of $7.99 for 8 ice blocks, seemed a bit steep to me. We all enjoyed them, great on a hot day. We thought they tasted much like chocolate ice cream in the tubs. Thanks kidspot for the trial!
TraceyF - 1:31 PM on Sun-19-Feb-2012 reply | message
My kids loved these and I must say I had a couple myself and enjoyed them. I would have to agree about the multi packs being only one flavour though as my kids love Strawberry, chocolate and banana so it was hard to choose. We ended up getting chocolate because I wanted to try them as well and I am not fussed on the other flavours. I also looked at the price and thought I wouldn't be buying these unless they came on a really good special. Taste wise I think the chocolate ones anyway taste just like a paddle pop which you can buy singles for cheaper than the calciyum. In saying all that we all enjoyed them and they are nearly all gone.

I took my 3 kids to get the ice blocks today. They were of course easy to find with Mr Bob and all. I did find it annoying that the multipack was all of the same flavour as when buying a box of 8 it would have been great to have a selection. Now the $7.99 pirce, I would have to agree with everyone at it being a bit pricey for what is definately considered in the ice blck range. Yes, it does not melt as quickly and surely it was a mostly healthy option,loving the milk aspect. However, I must point out that my 9 year old daughter, who does not drink milk :( sadly did not like these as they are definately a strong milk flavoured block.
Also, I must say that for the younger ones, it would have made a big difference if they had the sponge bob wrappers inside too :) I know the ones that are sold in singles do, so ya .....hope this helps

I didnt get a voucher but my grandson LOVES these and on special they are reasonably economical for a treat. Plus they are MUCH less messy than an ice-cream on a stick.

I am not however convinced these OR dairy foods are actually healthy despite marketing focusing on the better aspects so - a 'ocassionally food' is what they shall remain

I recieved went and got my iceblocks with my voucher today! They were gr8. Taste so yummy. My wee girl absolutely loved them and made such a mess but was so worth it. She has been teething lately and has had a fever and sore throat with it so this ice block treat made her feel 100% this afternoon. Thanks kidspot for giving us the chance to review this milky treat! I am going to be recommending to all my friends that have kids as these are a great wee treat on a beautiful day like today has been. Will definately be buying them again in the next grocery shop. =)

So we received our voucher off the courier today, and Mr S (2yrs) and I headed to the supermarket to get the "treat". When looking for the product, they were easily identified by the bright colors and of course the use of the sponge bob character made the item super easy to find, not only for me, but for Mr S. I was secretly hoping that Mr S would want the chocolate flavour, but then I was not too worried as I had in my mind that I was going to convince him to get the multi-pack - thinking that multi-pack referred to a packet with all flavors in....which I soon discovered was a little misleading, since they dont sell a multi-flavor packet. Mr S soon settled on the Banana ones, as it was the correct color for sponge bob - so that was ok.
I was very surprised at the price - $7.99. I do believe that this price is a little over the top, and I dont really think I would pay this price for the product. However, in saying that $1 for an iceblock is still cheaper than what you would pay for a single price at the local dairy, however I dont generally buy 8 iceblocks at a time!!!
The box is a great size, fitting securely and easily into the door shelf on my freezer.
I must say I was a bit disappointed at the packaging inside the box. After the really bright colors and standout artwork on the box packaging, the blue iceblock wrap was rather boring....but I guess they dont stay on the block for long especially when Mr S got his hands on it.
I to tried the product, and thought it was just like having a frozen milk on a stick. I really enjoy flavoured milk, so it was like an additional treat to have it frozen on a stick on a really hot day. Mr S kept saying...mummy its my milk but on a stick and super cold....yum yum. He would make a great seller for this product. Mr S even told the checkout operator that she should buy some icy cold milk on a stick!!! Was rather cute. They did not seem to melt as quickly as some iceblocks which is great for young children that are still learning how to eat these products.
Over all the product was good. I was glad to see the heart tick on the product, and the content of sugar was not too bad. Having no artificial flavorings, preservatives and colorings is also an added bonus. I do think they taste similar to paddle pops, with the same type of texture, but the packaging stands out more significantly than paddle pops.
Mr S enjoyed the stickers as well so thank you for those to.
Cant wait now to try the chocolate. Even at this price, I liked the product and think it is worth trying the chocolate at least!!!!! Thanks Kidspot and Tip Top.

Took 3 of the 4 kids to the supermarket this afternoon and they chose the strawberry flavoured milk ice. I told them that I was going to give a review on them and all I got back was "mum I'm eating don't interrupt" followed by "these are soooooooo yummy"!

I liked the fact that it didn't drip everywhere so my almost 2yr old stayed pretty clean while eating! 12yr old said they were lovely and creamy and reminded her of Quick Milkshakes. 4.5yr old was too busy eating/licking noisely to make too much comment but I'm confident he loved them.

It was very nice to be able to try these but I probably wouldn't buy them myself on a regular basis as $8 is a bit pricey for ice blocks (even though they are yummy).

As an update the big kids aged 7 and 6 tried out their strawberry flavoured CalciYum Milk Ice's and absolutely loved them. Thumbs up all round! :0)
ps Spongebob is a big winner too although the kids were disappointed there was no spongebob on the actual iceblock and was just on the box. They were hoping the ice block was shaped like him or had his face on it :0)
Curlzgirlz - 4:10 PM on Fri-17-Feb-2012 reply | message
I had my nephews over for afternoon tea so unfortunately for them they all had the awful job of trialing the calciyum milk treats! I too went looking for a multipack but realised they only came in single flavour boxes. I choose strawberry. The spongebob packaging is definitely a winner with the kids. The boxes all stood out easily at the supermarket. I found the box itself easy to open - it didn't rip like so many of the others. I'm not sure I would fork out $8.00 for a pack but then again $1.00 each isn't bad. It would be a treat purchase for me. All four kids loved them, lots of flavour right until the end. Nothing fell off the stick as you got near the end. Mr 2 was waving his all round the place and nothing dripped off his, so that got my seal of approval. They weren't messy to eat. Miss 7 said they were very creamy when you suck them and very tasty. Mr 5 said Really tasty loved the fact they were spongebob. Miss 5 said they were yummy and would definitely have another one. Overall I was impressed and even enjoyed one myself. I would like to try the other flavours too so will be purchasing more in the future. Would definitely recommend to others. Thanks also for the very cool stickers they were a hit too. Thanks for allowing us to trial.

Picked up a pack of these at the supermarket today - perfect timing as it is SUPER hot today in Northland and both myself and Miss 8 are sick with sore throats, so needed something nice and cold!
We chose the chocolate ones as we are all choccy fiends although will eventually try all of them - they were surprisingly good. I am not a big fan of milk ices (ie paddle pops etc) as find them a bit tasteless and funny texture, but the Calciyum ones were good! Good chocolatey flavour and actually tasted and felt like proper milk was used, not just frozen junk - didn't melt that quickly either so Miss 3 managed to eat one without wearing it completely, always a bonus!
Whole family had to try these and the verdict from everyone was a unanimous YUM! They were on special at New World for $5.99 a box, would def buy on special but not sure if I would buy for $8 a box, they are really great tasting but as a few have said we don't spend a lot on treats these days....

Went looking for a multi pack at two supermarkets and figured they didnt come with all flavours, so I agree with melnel and say they should.
The Chocolate flovour is yum (will buy Banana next time!) and has been a hit with Mum, Dad, Miss 8 and my nephew whos 4. They loved the stickers. My Nephew(4) thinks the fact the are sponge bob is very cool, so great packaging!
Even though they are ymummy Im not sure that I would pay $8 for a box, alittle bit out of the budget and I would think for alot of familys too.
All in all though, It was a yummy treat for young and almost old so thanks for the oppourtunity to try them!
scottishlass - 1:30 PM on Fri-17-Feb-2012 reply | message
well the chocoholics voted for the chocolate flavour, first the packaging is nice and bright and they are easy to open, i found them really delicious, creamy and nice rich chocolate flavour, with four of us here , they did not last very long, two days max, i don't think they were much different to any other milk flavoured ice blocks, however i would recommend them and buy them again, great factors are no preservatives and colourings or artifical flavourings,.always something i am looking for, and for people watching their weight,ideal for a treat, thanks for the opportunity to try these, were a definite hit in my household.
melnel - 6:27 PM on Thu-16-Feb-2012 reply | message
Well I must say we loved these. We headed off to the supermarket in search of the
"multi box" this had translated in my brain as a box with all 3 flavours... could not find that at the first supermarket so tried another, again couldn't find it so Mr 3 decided we should just get chocolate (got home and looked and realised they don't exist THEY SHOULD).

They are a bit pricey at $8 a box, but $1 per icecream is cheaper than the dairy! Will be saved for special treats when they are on special!

They were loved by all in our house. Bit big for Mr 18 months (we shared one) but Mr 3 thought they were fab and has been asking for more since we got them!

Would definitely choose these over other brands, they are delicious and not too quick to melt on these hot days!

5 stars from our family.

Thanks for letting us review the Calci yum Milk ice we tried the Chocolate ones we liked that there is 8 in the box as my husband and i got to try them as well as the kids. The kids liked having sponge bob on the box.We found that they do not melt fast so they are good for little ones who take some time to eat them .We all liked them I liked that they have 80% milk in them as not all my lot drink a lot of milk so that was good and all so having the Calcium in them is good. It would be good if you could get all the flavours in one box ,thanks again

We received our vouchers with stickers yesterday - thanks for the stickers, the kids think they're great!

Master almost 2 and I headed off to the supermarket to buy our box of Milk Ices. They were super easy to find and well stocked. My first thought though was "where is the box of mixed flavours?". It was really hard to choose which to get. (Personally I think it would be great if you had a mixed box of 4 strawberry and 4 chocolate). At the price of $8 for 8 I won't be getting these regularly as I try and get treats at 50c per serve, but for a one off treat every now and then these would be one of my first choices.

I thought about waiting to open the box until the big kids got home from school but Master 2 saw the box and wanted one NOW. We're not used to standard size ice blocks as we usually get the mini ones but my littlie easily scoffed most of his and I easily devoured mine.

Score on flavour and texture 10/10. These were really yummy and didn't have that gritty feeling that you sometimes get after frozen milk treats. I would definitely buy these again and am going to try the chocolate sometime too :0)

Thanks for the trial Tip Top, I'll post another update once the big kids come home from school. xx

I got our Calci Yum Milk Ice yesterday. The box is a good size to fit in the door of my freezer. The packaging is nice and bright and easy to pick out in the freezer at the supermarket also stands out with Sponge Bob on the box. The kids were undecided about which flavour to get but we settled on chocolate. It would be good to have a multi flavour box. The kids liked the taste and texture of the Calci Yum Ice and they didn't seem to melt too quickly. My 8 year old said that they tasted just like the chocolate milk. I like the fact that they have the heart foundation tick. I like the informative info on the front of the box which sums them up and easy to read at a glance. I will post more reviews as we try the rest of the box. They were definately a hit as they wanted another one after dinner! I can see that we will have to try the other flavours too. The kids loved the stickers too.

The kids were disappointed that there are no mixed flavour packs because they wanted to try them all. They settled on chocolate and had one each for their afternoon snack. "They taste exactly like the CalciYum milk but less watery" which is praise indeed in this house. There were no complaints at the portion size (often there is - we have children who live to eat rather than the other way around) and I am happy with the stats on the side of the box. Thank you! We will be buying these when they are on special.

Got my voucher today and went straight to the shop to redeem it. The kids chose the strawberry flavour and they all had one after dinner. Miss 5 said "yum, it tastes like strawberry milk" (she loves strawberry milk). Master 7 thought they were pretty tasty and Miss 13 said she liked them but it was a bit annoying that the icecream came off the stick quite easily but they are still really yummy she added. I had a taste and thought they were really yummy and tasted exactly like strawberry dairy food. So happy all round here :)

The girls ate a banana CalciYum Milk Ice straight away in the car after we got them! Even though we got their second flavour choice! they both enjoyed them. They are happy to eat them all! and since there is 8 in the box their dessert is sorted for the next few days! These are especially good for Michelle who doesn't regulary drink milk or eat milk products. I think it would be good if they made a mixed flavour box. Thank you again for the chance for our girls to trial this product!

My boys (2 & 1) love the calci yum yogurts and flavored milks but they squeeze the contents out and everywhere! I like that this product has no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners because my eldest son has sensitive skin and stomach so I've cut out allot of milky treats from both his and his baby brother's diet's (including ice cream :( ). They will love these icy treats i bet i would too and will definitely share them with the six other children in house ;)

im sure these would go down well with 5 children currently in my care, the are all water and milk kids (no juice) so i would love to give this a go, such yummy flavors that always go down a treat, and speaking of treats, what kid/adult wouldn't be happy with a yummy ice cream and even better its healthier then most other brands you can get. thanks for the opportunity .

Being a fan of iceblocks, flavoured milk and yoghurt I would be interested in seeing how my 20 month old son rates these. Being summer and all we have been using all of the above as treats so would be nice to be able to offer him something different with the added bonus of it being healthy. I would be lying if I said I wouldnt try one or wo myself :-)

I have 3 young children (5 year old and twins of 3 years of age) and 1 especially loves milk - the others not so much. However they all love ice blocks and I think this would be a tremondous opportunity to get some more calcium (or Calciyum!) into the 2 who are less keen especially as we are experiencing such a hot humid summer.

My 3 boys aged 11, 6 & 14 months would Love to trial these also. They are all big fans of milk (4ltrs a day!!) and big fans of CalciYum Milk, yoghurts and the ice creams and are also as many other kiddies I see begging for an ice cream after school.

These CalciYum Milk Ices sound yum. We quite often get the Moosies so I would be interested to know if these taste even yummier and whether the kids preferred these or not. Also the fact they are on a stick compared to just the plastic case like Moosies is a bonus as the kids wouldn't need their ice blocks wrapped in a paper towel each time.
Yes please, count this family in - we have a 7 year old, a 6 year old and a 2 year old who all love iced treats. Thank you for the opportunity!!

hi there, Im a Mum of 3 (6,5 and 2). There are two reasons I would like to try this new product and potentially buy it - firstly my kids love iceblocks which we keep at home as treats but theres not a whole lot of goodness in them really! And secondly, my 2 year old doesn't like drinking milk and I do like giving her other things during the day that help out with that (eg yoghurt, cheese etc), in this hot weather (or cold probably!) it would be a healthy morning or afternoon tea. As for why our kids would like to try it - well thats easy! It looks fun and like something that is special! It comes in a pack and not a glass (thats important when you're little!) and its bright and funky! Plus they love spongebob!

This would be awesome! We all love ice cream, but I feel a bit guilty about how much of it we eat... If I buy a 2l of ice cream we all dish up the most enormous bowls and it's gone in a day and a half, but I usually don't get the multipacks of individual ice creams because they're so much more expensive. If these are yummy I could probably find a way to justify it! :p The fact that they're milk based rather than cream and sugar based would set my mind at ease a bit too. Please choose us!

Perfect time of year for this - have been raiding kidspot recipes for new recipes for homemade iceblocks as am quite fussy about what the kids have regularly, we moved to Northland from Wellington so find the heat quite intense and therefore iceblocks are a daily thing at the moment...

My son ***** would love to try these new ice-blocks as he's just starting to try ice-blocks and seems to love them! I'm trying to get more milk into him - he's almost 2 - but he doesn't have very much milk at all. Would LOVE to try the chocolate ones please.

My kids love having an iceblock especially on a hot day and these would be great knowing they're that little bit healthier having the Heart Foundation tick and also by increasing their calcium intake.
julianne - 12:19 PM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
Oh yes please, my boy 3 loves any ice block and always trying to find ones that are good for him too.
Shell - 12:18 PM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
My eight year old often asks for a box of ice blocks when we're in the supermarket but my answer is always 'no'. I look at the price and wonder what if they don't like them and no one eats them - what a waste of $'s. We would love to try CalciYum Milk Ice to see if they meet the kids approval on taste and my approval on cost.
kozmo - 12:17 PM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
This is quite a cool idea, Miss 5 is a fan of milk , over summer Im often scanning what kind of cold treats we can pop in the freezer. and she loves sponge bob so these would probably be a hit
tessa771 - 12:14 PM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
My kids love these drinks, so can only imagine how crazy they would go over them as Ice Blocks! I also love how they have the heart tick so you know your not fulling them up on junk!

We would love to trail these, My eldest is often asking for dessert and it would be nice to have a healthy option for her and for my youngest.

What a nice way to get kids to get their calcium intake.. This way you feel good about such treats.. I'd rather get these than the normal sugar-filled junk.. Eager to try this and what lovely flavours.. WOW

What a FANTASTIC way to get more calcium in to children. I know my kids would LOVE these if we are picked to trial them.

My girls love the milk drink! Ice blocks are such a great idea and a good way to get some calcium into their wee tummies! Would love to give this a go!
nikki - 11:55 AM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
Oh i would love to give this to my children, mr2 loves his milk and often when he has been told he is allowed a treat a choc calci yum milk is his first choice, and now lil miss nearly 10months can suck on a straw she loves to suck on the straw once her big brother has finished in the hope he may have left some lol.
lisap - 11:54 AM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
Yes Please!!!! My son is a fussy eater and this would be another way of him getting calcium.
misstupac - 11:53 AM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message
my son loves ice blocks/ice creams and i would like for him to try this because of this reason: CalciYum Milk Ice is a great treat for children - it's 80% milk and has no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners. It has the National Heart Foundation tick of approval, and of course, is full of dairy goodness.

to me, that means it is a healthier alternative than other brands!!

thanks :)

My daughter is mad on ice blocks at the moment & has even been making her own. She would love to try these, I haven't seen them before but our kids love the CalciYum yoghurts & they would be a nice way to get some more dairy into her diet too. Thanks!
emjane - 11:52 AM on Mon-30-Jan-2012 reply | message

They are both looking for a treat when my eldest finishes Kindy in the afternoon - these would be perfect as they have a healthy side too!!! They are both iceblock junkies but only really get to have them once in a while so to have some to trial would be a real blast for them. :)

Since my eldest was 2 (she is now nearly 9), we have always had a Calci Yum drink on food shopping day as a treat for the way home. Miss 4 has taken over that tradition now. It is by far the nicest tasting flavoured milk, and I'm guessing these Milk Ice blocks are just as tasty. We would love to try them :)

My children have a frozen yogurt most days. (homemade) as it is a fun way to get calcium into them. They would love to try these as have fun packaging and are I'm sure they will taste great too. I like that they have been given the heart tick and contain lots of calcuim. I can see there will be some discussions about which flavour to buy.

My kids love spongebob so that has them willing to try anything new! We make our yoghurt which helps with getting dairy into them but I find that they need to have more. One way has been for us to put the yoghurt in the freezer to make 'ice pops'. I like that fact that it's 80% milk and has no artificial colours, flavours or sweeteners and it has the National Heart Foundation tick of approval - this makes me happier to buy it for the kids. Having it available at the supermarket makes it easy to put in the trolley as well.
