***Longley Farm Raspberry Yoghurt***
I feel more than qualified to write this review as I have been supporting this brand for more than 20 years!! I first ate this yoghurt when I used to have school dinners. My friends and I loved having this yoghurt with jelly and I remember seeing the empty pots on the side in the kitchen. Back then we were lucky in that if there were leftovers we got to have seconds too! Anyway when I grew up I remembered the distinctive taste and tried to buy them whenever I could. They are sold in Morrissons and Sainsbury's, but not Tesco's for some reason. They are often found in small local corner shops too.
***What are they like?***
They are completely natural and contain no added preservatives, colour or stabilisers which for me is a big positive. Longley Farm has one of the largest Jersey farm herds in Europe. They also sell cottage cheese, buttermilk, fromage frais, butter and cream. The sell by date usually gives you about 10 days grace. Calorie wise they contain 105 calories per 100g and a pot is 150g - not the lowest calorie option, but then it doesn't claim to be a low fat diet product. Fat is 4.1g but saturated fat is not listed seperately. It is a 'live' product and added ingredients are only unrefined cane sugar and raspberries (9%). They cost around 36p.
They are produced over in Holmfirth which isn't that far from where I live, so again I like to buy them because I feel I supporting British workers in these difficult times. There are the usual flavours such as strawberry and blackcurrant to choose from, but raspberry is my favourite. One of the reasons I like them so much is that they have a slightly tangy taste to them and other yoghurts seem bland and tasteless by comparison. They are not laden with big chunks of fruit, but there are pieces of the associated fruit in there that you can detect. They are also very creamy and have a nice rich texture - again, some yoghurts have a kind of 'grainy' texture but this one doesn't. It is a small point but they come in what I call a traditionally shaped 'youhurt style' pot as opposed to the big wide tubs you see of a different type of brand.
When I have one of these yoghurts I do feel it is substantial as it isn't one of the 'diet' types, which may put people off - but if you love yoghurt in it's own right as opposed to eating it for diet reasons, then give this brand a go, because I can fully recommend them.
Not sure what else there is to say about a yoghurt but if you see them in the shops - give them a go.
They have their own website at http://www.longleyfarm.com so you can read up on them if you wish.
Summary: Nice to have a yoghurt that is natural without a fancy price for a change.
