“ Type: Yoghurts „
I bought some of these recently when I saw them on offer in Tesco for, I believe, £1. I think children's yoghurts can be quite pricey considering how small they are, but I like keeping some in the fridge because I like them as a snack and they're a better size for me than Muller Lights, which I love, but find to be a bit too much to eat during the day.
It's a bit embarrassing to admitting I recently bought Munch Bunch. The last time I ate these was when I was bought them as a child - but a little regression is good for staying young at heart, right?
These are produced by Nestle, a prestigious and popular brand dating back to 1866, so I trust their products should be tasty and of good quality. The Munch Bunch range has expanded a fair amount since I was a child, and now includes chilled yoghurty products such as:
Mega Double Up
Drink & Omega
This review is for the latter, which are quite popular and can be found in most supermarkets. They're sold in a pack of 6 x 23g pots and cost around £1.44 (Tesco). I think this is a tad pricey, but they're often on offer, such as at £1 or 2 for £2.20. Providing the dates are alright, which should be a couple of weeks ahead, then it's a good idea to perhaps buy a couple to keep in.
The 6 plastic pots are easy to snap off and although are quite small and oval in shape, they are good for little hands and make the perfect lunchbox addition. The pots consist of 3 flavours, and you get two of each. These are appropriately named:
2 x Sally Strawberry
2 x Rozzy Raspberry
2 x Andy Apricot
I can't say that picking up a Sally Strawberry really tempts me, but these are promoted towards children, whom I'm sure would appreciate the characters.
Each pot contains 44 calories and 1.3g of fat, so they're a good snack and provide some health benefits, such as calcium, which are particularly important for younger children and growing bones. They contain no artificial colours and although they're made using real fruit puree, they're smooth and bit-free, which is a positive in my opinion as I hate yoghurt with bits (not sure why, I've just always had a bitty-yoghurt phobia).
The smell and taste of each flavour is good and clearly distinguishable. It's a good idea to give them a little stir before eating, but with a teaspoon, as the pots are quite small. The consistency is good as they're not too thick but not too watery, though they seem slightly less thick than Petit Filous.
Overall, these are nice tasting little yoghurts and they're good quality, so you can rest assured that your child, or you (adults can enjoy mini fromage frais too!), are getting something healthy and pure. Whilst they're a bit pricey, they're suitable for everyday eating, especially if you can get some whilst on offer. In my opinion, I'm as likely to buy these as Petit Filous, it just depends which is cheapest at the time! Always on the lookout for a bargain :o)
