When it comes to yogurts as a rule I'm a real fan of them! So when I saw these Sainsbury's Basics Fromage Frais pots at 46p (for six) I thought I'd give them a go for a change! I couldn't believe the price and as my Mum says a change is as good as a rest! lol. The Packaging.... 6 white plastic pots with peel off plastic lids. The six pots are plain (but for a couple of ripples to the sides of them indented in) and come in two lines of three and they all snap apart very easily. Across all of the lids is all the information you need all given in orange and black writing. I'm told they are indeed Sainsbury's Basic's Fromage Fries 'with fruit puree' the ...

Personally I am not a yoghurt eater (I class these as yoghurts) but they are a good source of calcium for young children and easy for them to eat. They also make good weaning food. When both my daughters were being weaned I never thought to buy basic stuff I wanted the best but as my youngest got older and loved yoghuts, money got tight so I checked the cheaper ones. The ingredients were practically the same no more salt and sugar etc so as the very first time I bought these they were on offer for 20p for 6 I went for it. They are now normally priced at 45p. The packaging is very basic as with all the basic products and has the usual orange writing ... Read the complete review

Introduction A recent shopping trip to Sainsbury's saw me having to choose some different yoghurts as my usual favourites weren't on the shelf. Instead, I chose Sainsbury's Basics Fromage Frais. We've always had fromage frais at home for our children, but I normally leave these alone so the kids have always got some in the fridge. Being a big fan of the Basics range and liking yoghurts, I dived in with a spoon in one hand and a pen to write the review in the other! The Product / Opinion What is a fromage frais? I had to look this up as I thought it just meant a small yoghurt. It's not actually a yoghurt at all, it's a cream cheese ... Read the complete review

These taste good. I picked them up one day because I had been fancying yogurt for a while and I don't actually know the difference between fromage frais and yogurt and...it was cheap. So there you go. These come with three flavours which are strawberry, raspberry and apricot and you get 2 of each. I tried the apricot on the first night and it was really good! The strawberry was also good, as was the raspberry. The only problem I have in regards to taste is that I feel like the flavours are quite...artificial, if you know what I mean, particularly in the case of the strawberry. It just tastes too strong to be natural, haha. However, the ingredients do list strawberry ... Read the complete review

My daughter is a huge fan of yoghurts, so I decided that it's about time to find a cheaper version. This is where the Sainsbury basic range comes in. The fromage frais come in a pack of 6 pots each holding 60gs. There are 3 different flavours included, 2 x strawberry, 2 x apricot and 2 x raspberry. Each pot contains 62 calories, 1.7grams of fat and 5.8grams of sugar. They are high in sugar so I wouldn't recommend eating them all the time. The yoghurts them self are in a very basic plain white packaging, with the Sainsbury logo and product name on the lid in orange. The lid isn't recyclable but the pot is so don't forget to pop it in your plastic recycling ... Read the complete review
