“ Brand: Onken / Type: Yoghurts „
This is a plain yogurt comes in a 500ml tub. The tub is blue and white in colour, it has a foil lid with a secondary plastic lid on top. I picked it up instead of my usual yogurt when I ran out without realising it and had to pop to the local shop to grab some for my daughter's dessert after dinner. I was really disappointed with this yogurt. Whilst my original yogurt is full of flavour and smooth in texture, this was almost tasteless and reminded me of the consistency of cottage cheese. It was watery and lumpy. My daughter ate it without complaint though, so maybe she is not as discerning as I am! She does have it mixed with fruit so maybe this added enough flavour and is also only a year and half old. With the consistancy and the lack of taste I would have thought it was a fat free yogurt. It actually makes me go "ewww" to think of it. It is very poor in comparison to my usual purchase of Yeo Valley, and is not much cheaper at around £1.40 for a 500ml tub. I suppose I should say something positive about it as it can't all be negative. It is a usuable alternative for my daughter's yogurt should I run out again, but this is only because she is happy to eat it. I won't be bothering to eat it myself!

I bought 4 cups last week to try them and compare to the Tesco organic or Greek style yoghurts that I usually buy. It seemed like an healthier version of the Tesco brand. I love yoghurt, natural without sugar or fruits. Just plain yoghurt. I often combine yoghurt with my meal or make a yoghurt-cucumber-lemon dipp as an appetiser. I tried to make this dipp using this yoghurt, the result was really weird and the taste was different. It felt like the lemon acid doesn't combine well with the yoghurt. Apart from this dip, eating the yoghurt by itself is not bad and it is quite refreshing, but something is missing from the taste. I still think that Tesco's taste better. ONKEN Natural Biopot is not for me. It is not bad, but I prefer other yoghurts much more, even the Tesco's organic yoghurt is better than this and they have better value. However, they have a website on the packaging that also includes recipies to make using this yoghurt: curries, sauces... so apparently it is suitable for cooking...I will check it out and will come back with further information. I have 1 cup still left anyway.
When I started feeding solids to my baby, I picked up some yogurt at my mums advice, and went to town and bought the Lidl brand. I took it home and the baby promptly spat it out, now why would she do that I wondererd, she generally liked new flavours. But then I took a taste of it myself and yuck, It was sour. Oh well, I guess no yogurt for the baby. But a few weeks later a friend recommended Onken, now I hadnt a clue that different natual yougurts had different flavours, I just assumed they were simular, but Onken natural yogurt is smooth, creamy and not at all sour! As a matter of fact I buy it more for me then for the baby now. I don't like buying the fruit yogurts as the sugar content is too high for my tastes, and I would rather add some natural fruit to natural yogurt, and this one is perfect. It is more expensive then the Tesco and Lidl brand but so much more worth it!
