Danone Activia Pouring Yoghurt
Advantages: Yummy pouring yogurt
Disadvantages: Price when the introductory offer finishes
I regularly buy a couple of big pots of bio yogurt as part of my weekly shop in Tesco, but when I noticed that Tesco were selling these new Danone Activita pouring yogurts for an introductory price of 99p, which I thought was pretty good value for a 950g carton. My husband and I often tend to have a bowl of yogurt with some cereal or fruit for supper before we go to bed, in an attempt to eat healthily and avoid late evening snacks involving chocolate biscuits.
The packaging of this product is the usual colours of the Danone activita yogurts combining several green shades, with a picture of some cereal with this yogurt being poured on it. This range of pouring yogurt comes in three different flavours - strawberry, natural and vanilla. I chose the latter of these flavours.
On the side of the carton it states that this pouring yogurt is the 'easy and delious complement to breakfast cereal, which will help you get your day off to a good start. It also claims to contain 'exclusive activita bifidus culture'.
Now, I am not a fan of greek style yogurt and much prefer the runnier kind of yogurt than the thicker style, so I was pretty interested in a pouring yogurt, and have already planned to use it in the summer strawberry season, when it would be perfect to pour over this fruit.
The yogurt itself is well dated, although it says on the side of the product that it is best consumed within three days of opening. We first tried this vanilla pouring yogurt a few nights ago with some fresh pineapple for our supper and it was delicious. For the first couple of times trying this, I really could taste the vanilla flavour, which wasn't very strong, but just added something nice to the yogurt and was lovely with the fruit. However, last night when we had some for our supper I didn't think I tasted the same vanilla taste, and actually there was more of a bitter tang to it, resembling more of a natural yogurt flavour. I have no idea why, as I followed the instructions on the carton recommending that you shake the carton before pouring. This however didn't put me off, and I still very much like the product.
The only negative of the product is the price. At the introductory price of 99p I would happily buy this aain, because I usually buy a big pot of bio pot for around a £1, but I really wouldn't spend much more on this product when it goes to its actual real price, which I am not sure how much it will be. I think the producers and sellers will have to bear in mind that is just a yogurt at the end of the day, and if it is marked too high, I for one will not be purchasing. At the right price of around a £1, I would happily buy this again, and highly recommend it.
