“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Yoghurts „
I have bought value yogurts from Sainsburys and really liked them so when shopping at Morrisons's, I decided to give these a try as they are as cheap as Sainsbury's and the same flavours. The cost about 30p for a pack of 4 x 125g yogurts.
Each pack contains two strawberry and 2 peach flavoured low fat yogurts. The come in a white yogurt pot that is 6.5cm x 4.5cm x 4.5cm in size and is sealed by a plastic film on the top. The film is yellow and contains all of the product names and information. The pots are connected together so to get a pot off you have to snap it off from the others. I have found that these pots, unlike some others from other supermarkets, are quite easy to break off.
The peach yogurt is a peachy beige colour and has a very feint scent of peaches. The yogurt has quite a "gloopy" consistency that reminds me more of thick custard than yogurt. This is visually quite off putting and initially made me quite wary of how they would taste. The peach yogurt has a slightly sweet taste that is a bit like peach, but is not too discernible. Overall it is a smooth yogurt, however there are a few little bits of peach in the yogurt which is quite a nice addition. On the whole, the taste of this yogurt was a bit nicer than I expected, however it is not the greatest.
On first impressions, the strawberry yogurt has a nice dark pink colour to it which looks very appealing. It has a slightly sweet smell to it that vaguely reminds me of strawberry's. Just like the peach yogurt, it has a "gloopy" texture to it, which strangely does not seem as off putting for this yogurt. The taste of this yogurt is not as sweet as the peach yogurt and taste more like a strawberry. Dispersed through-out the yogurt are small bits of strawberry, which again is a nice addition. Out of the two flavours, I much prefer this one.
These yogurts can be found only in Morrisons, however other supermarkets do produce there own brand value yogurts which are similar in price. These aren't the nicest own brand yogurts I have had as the taste and texture isn't quite as nice as you can get from other supermarkets.
Health wise, they contain 21% of your RDA for sugar, which is a phenomenal amount to be in each yogurt. This shows that the sweet taste is due to sugar and not the fruit. Looking at the ingredients, sugar is needed to sweeten as each flavour only contains 4% fruit.
I don't think I will be buying these again as despite being okay to eat, I much prefer the flavour and texture of the Sainsburys Basics Low Fat yogurts. If you do shop at Morrison's and want to try something new then they would be worth a try due to there low cost, but I would not have great expectations for them.
Overall I am going to give these yogurts 3/5 as the cost is good, the strawberry yogurt is okay, but the peach yogurt and texture aren't really to my liking.
Thanks for reading.
