FREE ICE CREAM ON GRAND OPENING DAY
UNIQUE GELATO & POPSICLES









WHY DOESN'T IT SAY THE PRICE?! I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH THE FRONUT COST BECAUSE THERE WAS NO PRICE... AND ALSO IT WAS ON THE HOUSE SO STILL NO IDEA HOW MUCH THEY CHARGE O___O
THE FRONUT WITH BANANA CHOCOLATE CRUNCH GELATO!

I CAME HERE AGAIN TODAY FOR THEIR OFFICIAL GRAND OPENING AND THEY GAVE NANCY AND I A FRONUT (FROZEN DONUT AS THEY CALL IT) FOR FREE! WOO!

  1. THE FRONUT
    • this is basically a copycat of the MILKY BUN from AFTERS ICE CREAM
    • they have the options of either glazed or unglazed donuts
    • did it taste the same? Basically, yes. Although I think the ice cream stuffed donut from Afters is actually a little bit thicker and maybe greasier ??
    • so what is the difference?? Well I wanted to compare the pricing but forgot to ask how much it costs. They didn't show the price on the menus and since it was free I totally have no idea how much it costs. Maybe it costs the same? Maybe cheaper? Maybe more expensive than Afters? Who knows ?! Well, except the owners.. haha
    • The key difference is the ice cream itself. Frozen Bar serves premium gelato while Afters serves ice cream
      • The flavor selection is also very different from Afters. They have some unique flavors like avocado, popcorn (yum!), thai tea, taro, etc. You can see all the flavors on the menu (in the above photos). 
    • I thought that the way they serve it is terrible. They give it to you wrapped in very thin paper that was sticking to the donut which made it difficult to eat (I had the same problem with Afters Ice Cream when they first debuted but they have gradually improved their wrapping!). The ice cream also melted terribly fast. A girl sitting next to our table claimed that the fronut was even better than Afters Ice Cream's milky bun because the donut tasted "fresh". The worker also responded by saying that "We bake our donuts fresh daily so that's probably why it's better." I disagree. I'm pretty sure Afters Ice Cream bakes their donuts fresh daily as well.  I think the fronut & milky bun tastes very similar or maybe even the same. Not better nor worse actually but that's just my opinion.
  2. THE POPSICLE BARS
    • These look adorbs! I love the popsicle molds that they use here because the bars are molded in very cute shapes and patterns. 
    • They don't have the popsicle flavors listed on any menu or even in the display case unfortunately so I had to try to remember what the worker was telling me...They need to add labels soon!
    • I remember they have thai tea, honeydew, chocolate peanut butter with pretzels, chocolate covered strawberry, chocolate, tiramisu, avocado, etc. 
    • Nancy and I ordered the Honeydew (naked) and the Chocolate Peanut Butter with Pretzels (dipped)
      • both were delicious!
      • are Popsicles a trend/fad now?! I feel like so many stores are selling them these days
      • naked vs. dipped
        • naked: not dipped with anything. The plain ones that you see in the display case are the naked ones!
        • dipped: already dipped wit something. For example, the strawberry flavor dipped in chocolate (pre-dipped). You can dip the naked ones with your own choice of dip though: white chocolate, chocolate, & strawberry dip.
    • the prices for the popsicles are cheaper than Popbar in the Anaheim Packing District
