      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      You must try these!

      Lately I have been suffering with a really bloated feeling which was really uncomfortable. Although I had seen the Activia adverts with Martine McCutcheon on the television many times before, I had never really taken much notice. It was funny because during the days I was suffering with bloating, I saw the advert many times and so off to Sainsbury's I went.

      I came across these Activia yoghurts fairly easy as they were offer. Instead of being £2.49 for 4 (this price has always put me off), they were 2 packs of 4 for £2 which I thought was a bargain.

      These yogurts are made by Danone. They contain Bifidus ActiRegularis which is said to help aid digestion.

      These yoghurts come in a lovely round pot. I like this shape because it is attractive, but not only this; you seem to be able to get more of the yoghurt out as there is no corners in the pot like you get with a lot of other yoghurts. These pots are quite sturdy and won't dent and leak like other yoghurts such as 'Ski' do. The pots are recyclable, although I am going to keep mine to put jelly in when I have my Christmas party at home.

      These yoghurts are a strawberry flavour; one of my favourite yoghurt flavours. The yogurt contains pieces of strawberry which taste really nice and fresh and also add a nice texture. It must be the creamiest yoghurt I have ever come across. It is incredibly more-ish, however I like to eat mine slowly in order to savour the delicious taste.

      One thing I noticed was the fact that this yogurt looks a natural strawberry colour and not an artificial pink colour like a lot of yoghurts.

      These yoghurts have a lovely texture; they are so creamy.

      I would describe them as being a real luxury. They are completely different to other yoghurts as they are quite thick and not at all watery like other products. This yoghurt is very set.

      Each 120g pot of yogurt will provide you with 117 calories, 15.1g of sugar and 3.6g of fat. Each pot will also provide an adult with 20% of their recommended daily calcium intake. So all in all, they aren't too bad which I was quite surprised about. I also found them to be really filling and so I wouldn't end up snacking on other things.

      I would definitely recommend these yoghurts. Not only were they incredibly tasty but after eating them (one a day for a week)they also helped me with my bloating problem.

      Thanks for reading!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        VERY delicious yoghurt, don't be put off by the science malarkey!

        Donone Activia promote this yoghurt as containing Bifidus ActiRegularis which helps reduce digestive discomfort. This is how I discovered this product, when I was feeling ill, my mum popped to the shop for me to get the usual milk/bread/soup etc & I found she had sneaked these in my fridge..

        - Advertising -

        There seems to be a lot of adverts on television on this yoghurt.. To be honest I had always dismissed them & thought it was just another 'latest fad' for women watching their weight that fancy a treat. To me the adverts are always off-putting because they add all this science malarkey & you wonder if they're actually going to taste any good. The other flavours advertised (& that I have tried since) are Juicy Raspberry, Smooth Caramel, Luscious Cherry, Peaches & Cream, Sumptuous Strawberry, Zesty Lemon, Mouthwatering Mango & Velvety Vanilla.

        They claim in the ads also, that if you eat these for two weeks, it reduces stomach upsets/discomfort. Another reason I was put off.. it's as if they just want you to buy 2 week's worth of their product - but boy, was I wrong!

        - Packaging & Price -

        As you can see in the picture, the pots come 4 in a 'box' stacked 2 x 2. The cardboard wrapping should come with a warning, when I was in the local supermarket, one of the pots slipped out & went everywhere on the floor! They are loose inside so be warned! The packaging gives you the usual information you expect to find.. always check the sell by date too.. they don't last too long (if of course you go by the 'best before' date). The packaging again gives you the whole science bit again.. which I think if you hadn't bought these before - could be off-putting.

        The yoghurt comes in the small pots with a foil lid, which to be fair, when you are actually eating them they don't seem that small anymore! It's not a case of a couple of spoonfuls as with some yoghurts, you do feel like there is quite a bit in there. The sell by date is shown on the actual lids - so you CAN take them out of the cardboard wrapper & put them however you want in your fridge.

        As we all know The PRICE of everything has gone up, including these. They used to be around £1.90 but in Tesco at the moment they are £2.18 or are sometimes on offer - 2 for £4.00 - which I thought at first was expensive but looking at other yoghurt prices, for these they are well worth that price! Asda at the moment has the exact same pricing as Tesco on these too.

        - The yoghurt itself -

        The yoghurt is absolutely lovely! Worth every penny. There are real fruit peaces in there too, an it is quite thick (thicker than Muller Corner yoghurts, but not TOO thick). Once you've had a spoonful, you can't stop eating these things! They certainly are Intensely creamy! You need to use a little teaspoon if you're like me & want to devour every last bit of this & to get right round the pot!

        - My Review -

        I must be honest & say I have never been a big fan of fruity yoghurts. I usually prefer a chocolate mousse or muller corner type thing.. but since I was bought these, I had to try & I was definitely impressed! I have tried the plain Activia yoghurts in the past & wasn't too impressed.. but these are completely different & are absolutely lovely!

        I like the idea of these pots, they are great - just enough in there too.. it does feel like you're eating more of a dessert than a yoghurt, if that makes sense? I always have one for breakfast now, or after a meal. The taste is sweet but not TOO sweet/sickly & the fruit pieces are NOT too big, like you find in some yoghurts.

        120g is just the right size.. although sometimes I feel like eating one after the other! I personally feel the price is a little on the high side for someone who has never tried them. I would like to see in the future some kind of offer where they put money off your next purchase inside the cardboard wrapper, even a 50p coupon would be great! definitely give them a try, you won't be disappointed! I would recommend the strawberry and peaches and cream! yum!

        - On the label -

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          GET DOWN TO ASDA FOR A BARGAIN!

          Activia is a yoghurt/dessert brand under the name Danone. They promoted their products as containing Bifidus ActiRegularis which helps reduce digestive discomfort.

          *Product*

          This is a fairly new product in the Activia range. It is the Intensely Creamy dessert range and the flavour I will be reviewing is Sumptuously Strawberry. Other flavours available are Luscious Cherry, Zesty Lemon and Velvety Vanilla.

          Danone say that if one pot is eaten every day for 2weeks, it can reduce digestive discomfort.

          *Packaging*

          The desserts come in packs of 4 which are stacked 2 by 2. There is a cardboard wrapper holding the pots in place. The wrapper has the usual information, product name, nutrition, ingredients and contact details for Danone. There is also an attractive picture of strawberries and some information about relieving digestive discomfort (nice?).

          The desserts themselves come in dinky little rounded pots. The pots are clear plastic and are sealed with a peel off foil lid. The lid has the product name and ingredients as well as the best before date which is ideal if you lose the outer wrapper.

          *The Dessert*

          The dessert is a lovely pink colour and you can see real strawberry pieces. It is thicker than Muller Corner Yoghurt but not overly thick. It sits nice on the spoon and smells delightfully fruity and sweet.

          *Ingredients*

          Yogurt with Bifidus ActiRegularis® (Whole Milk, Milk Protein, Cream (1.1%), Skimmed Milk Concentrate, Yogurt Cultures) , Sugar (8.7%) , Strawberry (8%) , Stabilisers (Modified Maize Starch, Pectin, Guar Gum) , Flavouring , Colour (Concentrated Carrot Juice) , Acidity Regulators (Citric Acid, Calcium Citrate) .

          Suitable for vegetarians.

          *Nutrition*

          The desserts come in a standard 120g pot. This is smaller than a normal everyday yoghurt. Each pot contains :

          117kcal
          15.1g sugar
          2.3g saturated fat
          0.1g salt equivalent

          *Availability and Price*

          4packs are available in the yoghurt aisle in major supermarkets. Asda currently have them on offer at £1 per pack which is a saving of 90p! Tesco price is £1.90 and not currently on offer.

          *My Opinion*

          I love my yoghurts and normally opt for a Muller Corner. I spotted these on one of the end aisles in Asda yesterday at only £1 for 4 and I had to have them! The other flavours don't really appeal to me due to personal preference but I love strawberries so these would do nicely. I have tried plain Activia today and cannot say I was overly impressed with them so I was sceptical. I needn't have worried.

          These pots strike me as being fancy though basic if that makes any sense. The packaging is minimal and the pots are quite cute! They are smaller than normal yoghurts which is fine as they are more of desserts than an everyday yoghurt.

          I opened my pot and had a sniff..lovely sweet and fruity aroma filled my nostrils and made my tongue tingle and my belly rumble. I used a small spoon to make it last that little bit longer and delved into my pot of yumminess. The dessert is a lovely consistency, not to thick and not runny thin. It is very creamy and has a nice sweetness to it without being toothaching sweet. They didn't skimp on the strawberry pieces and they were a reasonable size and very juicy.

          The calories intake and fat are great though sugar is a tad high so a little treat perhaps?

          The overall dessert was delicious and I feel 120g was the right size as anymore, you may feel a little sick. I would recommend you to try these especially on offer at Asda. I personally couldn't condone paying £1.90 for these but for £1 (25peach) these are well worth it.


          Thanks for reading

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Close your eyes and do it

            In the past few years Danone have become a pretty big name in the food industry and have brands like the "Activia" range which is seemingly sold on the stupidest marketing in recent times, the same marketing that has some how drown people in. The "Bifidus Actiregularis" campaign which is about eating "good bacteria" to fight against "bad bacteria" has seen the brand ever grow, and my mum, like many has been suckered into the "fakidius wordius" and paid over the top for Activia products. Well one of the few that actually do look rather nice are the "Intensely Creamy" range of yoghurts which she has purchased recently in the "Sumptuously Strawberry" flavour, and these looked something a little special to be completely honest.

            The yoghurt comes in a short round pot, that looks completely unlike almost every other yoghurt pot on the shelves, it's short, stubby and chubby, quite cute. The pot is see through with a green foil lid and is quite attractive. Inside the pot is a rather ugly looking yoghurt, it seems to visually resemble rotting milk mixed with a pink food dye, it's thick but doesn't look particularly appetising, and infact upon opening I went from thinking it was going to be a treat into something that was making me look away (whilst my stomach roared it's disapproval at the way it looked). Though with a heavy stomach and a bizarre feeling that this was going to make me throw up I decided I had to actually eat it to have a true opinion on the product. So with great trepidation the spoon went in...then out with the ugliest yoghurt stuck on to it...and then...yum. This was a fantastic case of looks being deceiving, it was sweet, gorgeous, smooth creamy strawberry goodness. The flavour was rich and yet smooth, it was more-ish and just a pure delight, it was a truly bizarre experience, that something so ugly could be that amazing.

            Although these are almost certainly a premium product (I've not seen the price) it's with good cause, they may be the yoghurt version of the ugly duckling but they are also completely amazing with a taste that you wish would never end. With bigger than average pots (120g) the only downsides are the almost certain hefty price, the stupid marketing and the revolting image the product gave me. When you let a product that tastes like this sell on it's charms you know the flavour will take it a long way, so please Danone, growius upious.

            Summary: It was like dating an ugly girl who turned out to be able to please your every fantasy.

            Nutritional Information (per 120g pot)

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Lovely tasty treat to satisfy a sweet tooth

              Over the last few months I seem to be hearing lots about how beneficial eating activia yoghurts are so I decided I needed to try them and see what all the fuss really was about. I'm not a great fan of yoghurts unless it's a mousse of some sort so I opted for the intensely creamy version of activia.


              Activia is made by a company called Danone. It is a yoghurt that contains bifidus actiregularis which is supposed to slow down digestive transit and reduce digestive discomfort. The yoghurt advises that you should see the benefits starting from 2 weeks as long as you consume a healthy diet in the mean time. It is required that at least one pot a day is needed to show some improvement with digestion and that bloated and sluggish feeling.


              I was attracted to the intensely creamy activia as it didn't look as boring as the other square pots on the shelf. The intensely creamy variety comes in a pack of four rounded pots which look a lot more presentable as they are frosted but see through. The pack is held together by a cardboard green activia label which is also curved and it would definitely stand out on a shelf.


              Each pot of activia intensely creamy contains:

              Calories - 117
              Sugars - 15.1g
              Fat - 3.6
              Saturates - 2.3g
              Salt - 0.1g


              If you are sticking to the weight watchers diet then there is about 2 and a half points in each pot of this yoghurt and since I only tend to get a sweet tooth after tea time I only have one pot of this per day. To be fair although the yoghurt is tasty you would certainly get board of eating the same treat each night so I tend to mix the intensely activias around a little and try the lemon and cherry too.


              When opening my activia yoghurt for the first time I was actually rather surprised that the constituency looked just like a standard yoghurt, that was until I moved it around with my spoon and seen that it was rather thick and creamy. Upon first taste I could tell I was going to like this yoghurt the texture was lovely and the taste of strawberry was sweet and apparent yet mild so it wasn't too sickly. These yoghurts are very enjoyable. I don't tend to go for yoghurts that contain bits to be honest but I honestly didn't mind them at all in this in fact they really added to the yoghurt.


              I have been eating this yoghurt most days for a while now and I do feel a little less bloated but to be honest I can't be 100% sure if it's from the yoghurt or the healthy eating from the weight watchers again. Overall I think this yoghurt is delicious. It is very creamy and thick with a lovely mild yet apparent strawberry taste. I would definitely recommend this and I will continue to buy this for myself.


              A pack of four pots of this cost me £1.36 from a co-op store.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I really liked these and they are on special at Sainsbury's at this time ...great.

                Activia Intensely creamy strawberry.


                Having fancied a yogurt with fruit lately and having tried the cheaper ones ive just decided that because Sainsbury's are doing four pack of these lovely yogurts for £1.95 or you can buy two packs for £2.00 so an extra packet for 5p I decided to try these and also another flavour which I will review seperately too.

                These come in four plastic little pots, I was trying to think what i could use them for afterwards, and will try to use a tea light candel in one of them to see if they are safe to do so or not.

                They have a pull off lid to each sepearate pot, which is fairly easy to pull off, they contain four 120grams full to the brim yogurts, they are thick and creamy and lovely, I love them and am going to add these to my shopping list, and the fact that they are on offer at the moment makes me feel really pleased too.

                They have a sell by date of more than a few weeks, so thats great too as its only me thats going to be eating them.

                They have a lovely creamy texture to them they have little bits of strawberry in them and I like them very much.

                They have a picture on the carboard wrapping that holds the four plastic pots together and they have a picture of a whole strawberry and a cross section of a strawberry on the front of the packet.

                They are made by Danone, and they also help to reduce digestive discomfort. and contain only three per cent of fat which is great.

                I really like the taste and the fact that they are thick yogurts, too I liked, because I have tried the cheaper ones that are watery and that puts me of no end.

                I shall try and experiment with the little pots as they look so cute will be a shame to throw them out, ill let you know.

                Great tasting yogurts, and I would recommend them to you to try.

                Thanks for reading and rating my reviews :)

                  See Review

                  Danone Activia Intensely Creamy Sumptuously Strawberry:

                  This was my pudding today and I absolutely loved it! Danone are a well trusted brand and they make some of the greatest yoghurts in the market. Strawberry yoghurts are one of my favourites and I love the way these are creamy too, it makes me wonder why these are so healthy and yummy!

                  These are basically creamy yoghurts with tasty fruit bits in them. I love yoghurts like that because at least you know you are having fruit not just yoghurt. What is special about these is the fact that they are made by using Bifidus Acti Regularis which is supposed to help your digestive system! This can reduce digestive discomfort which is always good for those who get this but if you don't, they are still really tasty yoghurts and can relieve bloated and sluggish feelings!

                  Each yoghurt comes in a rounded shaped yoghurt pot with a foil lid and the packs come in fours which is useful. They are based around a green theme and they have pictures of lovely Strawberries on them! The yoghurt pots weigh 120g and have 117 calories, 15.1g sugar, 3.6g fat, 2.3g saturates and 0.1g of salt! I actually thought these would have less sugar in than this and I am actually a little bit put off as this is 17% of daily allowance!

                  Advantages:

                  *These taste lovely and creamy and they do actually fill you up which is great so I will not want to snack later on towards midnight.

                  *The real fruit in these gives the natural effect which is lovely!

                  *They come in lovely little pots!

                  Disadvantages

                  *These are quite expensive, around £2.00 for four which is not good for people on low budgets!

                  *These can fill you up a little too much which is annoying.

                  Personally, I love these yoghurts because they taste intensely creamy and wonderful!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  One to add to the shopping list.

                  Danone Activia yoghurt is still on offer in Sainsbury's and given that I had so enjoyed the Danone Intensely creamy cherry variety I decided to try the strawberry version.
                  Good quality yoghurt is usually expensive but Danone have this on offer, four 120g pots for under £1.
                  I am plagued with a sensitive digestion, if I eat too many fatty foods or binge on junk food then it is a foregone conclusion that I will suffer for it. So I tend to try to avoid eating foods that will antagonise my digestive system.
                  Danone realise that digestive health is extremely important and the Activia yoghurt helps to move the food through the digestive tract at a far slower pace, if we bolt our meals or snack instead of eating properly then that causes us to feel slow and often our stomachs will feel quite bloated.
                  Danone Activia is designed to help us overcome these problems, they say ( quite rightly too ) that if we feel fine on the inside then that will be reflected in our outward appearance.

                  First of all I would like to say that the lovely little `cauldron` shaped plastic pots are delightful and they can be recycled after use. Each pot contains 120g of the Activia yoghurt, this yoghurt is superbly thick and creamy and I would award it full marks.
                  The Danone Intensely creamy strawberry yoghurt is thick enough to stand the spoon up in, it has a subtle touch of strawberry rather than an unnatural shade of strawberry pink that some yoghurt's have.
                  I always think that the brightly coloured yoghurt's look as if they are stuffed with unnatural additives in order to attain that vivid hue.

                  In the pot you can clearly see the strawberry pieces, they aren't huge but they are plentiful. Danone have not made this creamy yoghurt too sweet, it is reliant on the taste of the fruit for flavour more so than anything. When you are eating it the yoghurt is supremely creamy and from my point of view I could sit and eat a pot of this one at anytime of the day.
                  I think the huge pull of this product has to be that it can be a low calorie dessert and even if you slip up and eat two on the trot ( Ooops ) you don't feel that you have over-indulged.
                  I would be more than happy to serve the yoghurt with fresh or stewed fruit, I normally have crème fraiche with stewed fruit but I would imagine that the Danone Activia would be wonderful served with freshly stewed apple or plum.

                  I will add that I have also tried the Danone Intensely creamy lemon flavour yoghurt and yet again that is supreme, it is semi-sweet with a hint of lemon and when you eat it you are surprised to find that the yoghurt contains finely shredded lemon peel. The lemon flavour leaves your mouth feeling fresh and it is definitely one to look out for.

                  Danone Activia contains Bifidus ActiRegularis ( A good bacteria ) and that is the ingredient that aids digestion. Each 120g pot contains only 3% fat.
                  For some unknown reason I always thought that Danone was produced outside of the UK but in fact they have a production plant at Trowbridge, Wiltshire.
                  The product is suitable for vegetarians but Danone say that anyone who is diabetic should check it out with their nurse before they try it. Danone Activia is not suitable for coeliacs and if you are pregnant or breast feeding then you should ask the advice of the midwife before eating Activia.

                  Danone have produced this yoghurt to aid our digestion and that is highly commendable but I have to say that I bought it because it was on a special offer, I enjoyed it so much that I went back for more, I wanted to try out the different flavours on offer and I will definitely be looking for any further Activia promotions.
