Advantages: all natural, good for you.
Disadvantages: it tastes disgusting plain
So, I've just recently started a diet. I'm trying to cut down on unnessesary excess sugar & procesed foods with artificial colouring that are in a lot of food products. Which is really difficult to avoid, nowadays, even things that claim to be diet food seem to contain scaringly amounts of sugar. There may be less fat in them but they're jampacked with sugar, which will convert straight into fat!
So today I was wandering into Tesco's looking for healthier options. I love yoghurts, obviously I usually tend to go for ones that have a bit of flavour & taste good otherwise I wouldn't need to go on a diet, haha. My favourite yoghurt is Muller Crunch Corner Strawberry Shortcake which contains a whopping 233 cals & is packed with sugars & saturated fat. So I sadly walked past the Muller Crunch Corner pack and resisted temptation. I went along to the low fat section, there were tons to choose from I didn't know where to start or which would be the best, I nearly opted for Activia until I spotted Fage Total 0% fat.
The packaging was completely plain with just a 'Fage' logo & some information about the product but at the time it didnt matter because the 0% fat lured me in. It stated on the lid that it was 'all natural-non fat greek strained yoghurt' I'd never tried Greek yoghurt before so I had no idea what it tasted like but figured it would just taste like plain yoghurt. I didn't check the price I Just grabbed 2, 1 for me and one for my boyfriend but I've checked the price on my receipt and they were 70p for 150g tub which I find reasonable.
After dinner at my boyfriends my boyfriend tried the yoghurt first, he took off the lid, there was another plastic lid to keep the product fresh & it looked like yoghurt. He dipped his spoon into it then he realised it was another lid, plonker! lol. he took one spoonful, looked disgusted and says 'thats rotten, try it' I thought I knew I'd like it so I just brushed it off and said 'no, I'll try it when I eat mine' and he was like 'no try this first, see if you like it' so I did
I took one spoonful and I found it vile, it was rich and creamy and tasted like plain cream. I tried to force myself to eat it as it was good for me but had to throw it straight in the bin. It tasted just like a thick milk, which I hate. I now realise thats because the ingredients are : pasteurised skimmed cows milk, live active yoghurt culture. And thats purely it. Not the best for a milk hater like me, great for all you dairy lovers out there.
I still kept my own tub of yoghurt that had still not been opened though, then later gave it a try with chopped fruit. It tasted delicious, I was so pleased I'd made a healthy snack, or even breakfast out of this meal. I am going to continue to buy these yoghurts as they're all natural which is 70p well spent! You could mix it with natural honey, natural jam, bananas, raisins.. anything you want basically & it will be really good for you!
Here's some information :
Energy - 52k cal

Carbohydrate - 4g
Fat - 0g
& no artifical colouring, no sugar, completely natural!
A lot of people may also like this yoghurt plain, I don't have the same taste buds as everyone but I personally hate it plain. I love the fact it's natural & very good for you. its great for everyone to eat more naturally & benefit people who want to diet and lose weight.
Summary: good for making healthy snacks with & natural greek yoghurt :)
