Danone Activia Yogurt Packs
Advantages: Nice yoghurt, on offer
Disadvantages: Expensive alone, bits
In order to beat the bloat I've been trying various different products which I thought might have helped me. One brand I've been sampling in the past few months is Activia! One of the products I've been "lucky" enough to sample is the multi pack which comes with the flavours, strawberry, kiwi, apricot and mango!
These can be found in all supermarkets, including Asda, Sainsbury and Tesco. We tend to buy ours from Tesco now though but this is simply because it is closest to us! They can be found in the yoghurt aisle alongside the yoghurts such as Muller Light and Shape. They are on the middle shelf in my local Tesco so I assume they will be in the same place in every one but its worth having a little look about.
They come in packets of 8, and each yoghurt weighs 125g. This isn't a huge amount of yoghurt but it is pretty average for the dairy treat! The 8 pack costs £2.97 normally however at the moment there is an offer on and you can get the packet for only £2. This works out as only 25p per yoghurt which I feel is pretty good!
The 8 yoghurts come held together in a cardboard outer packaging. The packaging is a green colour which reminds me of luscious fresh green grass. This adds to the natural feeling of the product. On the cardboard packaging there is lots of product information as well as some delicious little pictures of glowing red strawberries, luscious looking kiwi, mouth watering apricots and delicious looking mangos! The pictures are very appealing. The packaging does have a very natural feel to it and probably would appeal to those on a diet. The light green of the wrapper provides a light and airy feel to it too and overall the packaging is very tempting!
The pots are made of plastic and follow the same pattern as the outer cardboard packet. The lid is made of a special foil which seems different to other yoghurts. It peels back really easily and doesn't spray you with too much yoghurt, in fact none at all. Each different flavour has its own picture of the fruit on it, for example the mango yoghurt has a picture of a juicy looking mango on it and the strawberry yoghurt has a succulent looking strawberry on the front of the pot!
Strawberry: the first yoghurt I tried was the strawberry yoghurt! The lid peeled off easily but did spray me ever so slightly with a little layer of the dairy product. The smell was very sweet and surprisingly did smell slightly of strawberries. It was a pale pink colour with visible darker pieces through it which was clearly pieces of strawberry. The taste was very sweet! There was a distinct creaminess to the yoghurt too however the sweet taste was more powerful. The strawberry flavour was fairly strong too however not overpowering. The little seeds and flesh pieces were quite annoying though and got caught in my teeth!
Kiwi: the next yoghurt I tried was the kiwi. The pot was the same as the strawberry one only it had a delicious looking kiwi on the front. The lid peeled off easily and luckily it didn't spray me at all with yoghurt. It was a pale colour, slightly off white. There was only a very faint green tinge to it. The pieces through it were a green colour though. The taste of the yoghurt was very unusual. At first it tasted of vanilla however it got fruitier as I went through it. The pieces were very annoying!
Mango: the mango yoghurt opened easily and required just a little licking of the lid! It was a pale orange colour, almost yellowish. There were only what appeared to be tiny pieces through it, which wasn't actually a problem for me because I love pieces of mango. This was a thick one and didn't require stirring. The taste of mango was distinct and there was a definite sweet tang to it too. The bits were annoying but not too bad.
Apricot: the final one I tried was the apricot version. This was slightly lighter in colour to the mango version and the smell was a lot stronger. There was surprisingly a distinct peach smell which pleased me greatly. The pieces through this one were quite large and proved to be quite annoying. This was probably the creamiest yoghurt but was also very sweet with a definite apricot taste to it too.
Overall I did enjoy them but they weren't the best and not my favourite fruity yoghurts. I think I will be sticking to Muller in terms of taste. They didn't help my bloating at all either.
They are worth a try especially when found on offer.
