This ice cream is an emergency one. When any other ice creams run out and you’re too lazy to move yourself to the store, then you may grab this one. Otherwise, it’s nothing you should bother.

It escalated quickly. A new category of protein treats, ice creams, is growing fast. These kinds of snacks are usually high palatable and they’re effortless to eat. That’s why you should be careful while grabbing them. Eventually, it may end up you will eat all of them straight away. Like it happened to me with ASDA Cookie Dough Protein Ice Cream. In the meantime, let’s have a look at WheyHey Salted Caramel Protein Ice Cream that is, well, one of the least spectacular we reviewed so far.

This ice cream is pretty tough when pulling it out of the freezer. So it may be a need to give it some time to defrost. What was surprising, it smells pretty nice with salted caramel flavour what is not so obvious when it comes to ice creams. Anyway, a couple of minutes just went by, so we’re ready to give them a try. And honestly, nothing has changed since last year we had them too.

This ice cream is not too flavourful.


All right, there is a detectable salted caramel flavour, but it could be much more intense. Also, it’s distinctly watery, making it too cold too. So it’s not too tasty. More than that, forget about any sweetness here, so it’s not sweet or satisfying ice cream. And this is a totally different story when compared to the other protein ice creams we reviewed so far, like ASDA Cookie Dough Ice Cream. It’s actually disappointed ‘a bit’.

I ate half of 500ml tub and… that’s enough for me. I don’t want any more of them. So it landed back in the freezer. And it’ll stay there until an emergency, like lacking any other ice creams around.

WheyHey ice creams, as always, are reliable when it comes to their macros. A Salted caramel one has less than 190 kcal per half tub, 8.3g of fat, 17.9g of carbs (of which only 1g of sugar) and a rock solid 17.6g of protein. Impressive, comparing to other protein ice creams like these from Morissons or HALO TOP. The ingredients list look impressive, as there is no added sugar, no palm fat, no syrups. However, the first ingredient is… water. Are you still surprise why this ice cream is so watery?

The ice cream for an emergency.


WheyHey Salted Caramel Creamy Ice Cream

WheyHey Salted Caramel Creamy Ice Cream is suitable for an emergency. When all other ice creams run out, but you still are fancy protein ice cream. And that’s not that bad, as they have superb macros and brilliant ingredients. But you know, sometimes it’s not all about numbers and ingredients. Sometimes it’s a bit about the taste too.

Will I ever go back to this protein ice cream? No actually. It’s excellent in this and that, but overall it’s only OK protein ice cream. Too bad.
