“ Type: Yoghurts „
For the next couple of days the co-op is my nearest local shop, and finding there was no food in the house and it was lunch time, off I trotted to the nearest shop.
Just randomly browsing I came across the co-op's own brand of low fat yoghurts, with other flavour including raspberry, hazelnut, toffee an peach, all of which were in stock.
They were also a lot cheaper than many of the 'premium' yoghurts, and since corner shops don't stock a big range of yoghurts anyway, I thought ~30p a good price. I could also have bought 4 for £1.
The pot itself is a traditional round pot, 125ml, and is decorated with a simple cherry pattern. It is in fact called 'Black Cherry' not just 'Cherry' as in the title of this review.
Upon opening the pot, it did look at first as if it were a bit watery and needed stirring a bit, but it turned out to be fine. It is dark purple in colour with visible chunks of cherry in it - if you're fussy and don't like bits in your yoghurt this isn't for you! If you're like me and you do, however, this yoghurt has an average/borderline good amount of cherry chunks in it.
Tasting it, it was quite creamy and with a noticeable flavour of cherry. It's not a luxury yoghurt, definitely a standard one, but with all the different types around today I think that's welcoming. It's refreshing to see just a simple product - not marketed at kids, not 'value', not with bells and whistles and a free cruise attached. Just simplicity - what food used to and should be like.
There is a good amount in the pot, which worked really well as part of my lunch (sandwich and crisps). I was more than satisfied without finishing the pot as I seemed to get a good few spoonfuls! But if you were eating this on its own it would make a good snack.
I also approve of the co-op's ethical and non-profit policies which makes this a human friendly buy in more ways than the taste.
