Danone Activia Pouring Yoghurt
Advantages: Only 2% fat, versatile and delicious!
Disadvantages: I have to share!
I'm a bzzagent and I get the opportunities to join campaigns and try out different products for free whilst sharing vouchers with family and friends so that they have a discounted opportunity. I don't get paid for it and they certainly have no influence on my opinion on the product so the review and opinions here are totally mine.
~~ The yogurt ~~
I'm usually one of these boring people that have the same cereal in the mornings with semi-skimmed milk and shovel it down before herding my kids out the door to nursery so I was really excited to pick up Activia's pouring yogurt to use and change the flavour a touch - Special K's oats and honey cereal is delicious but everyone needs a change now and again! I looked at the shelf and had to decide between strawberry, vanilla & the original one. I'm always a touch weary of original flavours so I went with the vanilla and tried it the next day. It pours nicely with a really good consistency so no splashing disasters or lumpy chaos like I'd envisioned. I really did have this image of clumpy yogurt so it's always a good start when you're happy at the first step.
Now I'm one of these people that had really bad reflux when I was young and thus hate the idea of soggy food and will still insist on my beans and toast not touching each other on the place (shiver) so I'm usually wolfing my cereal down at record pace to avoid any chance of that soggy mouthful (not to mention eating it before the kids do) but I've found my perfect solution in this yogurt. The cereal doesn't absorb it like it would with milk so I've been taking my time in the mornings to enjoy the flavours without having a fear of a soggy goo in my mouth. Bonus points to Activia!
Sometimes a company can describe a flavour and you really look forward to it but when you taste it it's far from what you'd expect and you run as far away as you can from it and never touch it again. Activia have struck gold with me again and have managed to produce a very nice tasting yogurt that will be suited by loads of different foods - mainly cereals. It's my perfect flavour combination and it honestly couldn't taste nicer with my Special K.
It doesn't stop at cereal though, my partner likes to eat it directly as it is and good old on a diet me decided I'd be healthier and have strawberries and yogurt rather then the rather more fattening strawberries and double cream. The cream is still the favourite but the yogurt did come a very close second and will be enjoyed over and over again.
My 4 year old daughter has become this yogurts favourite fan too but for an entirely different reason. Both my little girls have had milk intolerances since birth but the eldest (4) has grown out of it but is still very reluctant to have straight milk so breakfast has never been the happiest of occasions until now. The yogurt is a complete hit and she's had no problems with it whatsoever and thinks her cocopops are delicious with it on! Long may the happy mornings last.
~~ Overall ~~
With less than 2% fat and it's versatile ways, Activia's pouring yogurt has found itself a permanent spot in my fridge to be enjoyed by myself, my partner and our two little munchkins. It's nice that we got it for free (courtesy of being a bzzagent) but I'll continue to buy it and I expect to find more uses as time goes on. Time to try the other flavours!
