We have food intolerances in our family so we knew first hand how difficult it be to find an iceblock that the whole family could enjoy and this was one of the reasons we started Frozen Sunshine. The response that we got from families at the markets quickly showed us that we were filling a niche, making a product that could be enjoyed by all people including those with food allergies, sensitivities and special diets.
Which flavours are dairy free?
All Frozen Sunshine iceblocks are dairy free. We do not use any ingredients that contain milk products or traces thereof and we do not process any products containing dairy in our facilities.
What makes them creamy if there is no dairy?
Our creamy flavours are made using organic coconut milk. We source our coconut milk from a supplier that does not process any dairy products so that we can be sure there are no traces of milk.
Do Frozen Sunshine iceblocks contain sugar?
Yes. The amount of sugars in all of our iceblocks is around 15% as the sugar content determines not only the sweetness but also how hard or soft the iceblock is when frozen. No sugar at all and the iceblock would be as hard as an ice cube and too much sugar and the iceblocks will fall from the stick. The sugar from any fruit used will make up part of this percentage and the rest will be added in the form of caster sugar or brown sugar or dextrose. The fruity flavours only contain 47-65 calories per serve, while the creamy flavours contain 94-156 calories per serve meaning that they can even be enjoyed in moderation on a calorie controlled diet.
Do Frozen Sunshine iceblocks contain eggs or nuts?
No. None of our iceblocks contain eggs or nuts or ingredients containing traces thereof and we do not process products containing these ingredients in our facilities.
Does the chocolate ice block contain soy?
Yes. The chocolate we use in our Chocolate and Cookie Crumble iceblocks is top quality Belgian chocolate containing 70% cocoa solids. It is dairy and nut free but it does contain the emulsifier "Soya Lecithin". Although we have separate equipment for preparing the mixes containing chocolate and take care when cleaning down the moulds, there is a chance that traces of the allergen may remain. As a result all other flavours are labelled "May contain soybeans" because we use the same moulds for all iceblocks in our range.
Can I buy Frozen Sunshine iceblocks outside of QLD?
Not yet. Frozen Sunshine is small family run business and we make, sell and distribute the iceblocks ourselves. Currently our distribution area covers Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast but we are hoping to increase distribution in the near future. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we will keep you posted on any new stockists.
Can I buy in bulk?
Yes. But only if you can collect from our factory in Maroochydore. For orders over 30 pieces or more, use our online order form to let us know how many and which flavours you are after. Once you have submitted your order we will send through an invoice and contact you to arrange a collection time.
