“ Brand: Nestle / Type: Yoghurts „
As an avid dieter, I am always on the lookout for low fat/calorie snacks that could possibly sate my impossibly sweet tooth that seems to only really rear it's ugly head when the "D" word is mentioned!
After doing my weekly shop I noticed these on offer and thought I would give them a go, remembering them from my youth, though not really remembering if I liked them or not!
The product I will now review is - "Ski yogurts - tropical".
I am not a big fan of certain types of yoghurts as I am a little funny when it comes to the "bits" in them, preferring a slightly smoother option, but due to the flavours included within this four yoghurt set, I didn't mind if these were smooth or not!
The yoghurts come in the same format as many others, four pots joined together then covered with a cardboard sleeve.
There is all the usual information included, brand name (Nestle), product name, contents and description, a run down of the nutritional information and finally a picture to illustrate the fruits included in these yoghurts.
As there are four yogurts in the pack, and only two flavours mentioned there are obvious two of each flavour to chose from, these flavours being "mango & apricot" and "mango & passion fruit", which was going to be my favourite (I could feel it in my bones!).
Once the lids have been carefully removed, (I tend to get squirted on a regular bases by these things!), you are faced with a pale cream coloured dessert with the small orange coloured fruit pieces being visible after a quick stir.
This is for both flavours, so I am assuming that it is the mango that is the predominantly added fruit.
The smell again is pretty similar in both, creamy slightly tangy as you would expect with a yoghurt, and a fruity tropical aroma, so far so very good, I was actually looking forwards to eating it!
The first I tried was the "mango & passion fruit", the mango is definitely the predominant flavour, and yes the pieces of fruit are also most certainly mango too, but with this one the passion fruit adds a subtle perfume quality to it, I have to say this one of the most delicious ones I have tried.
The "mango & apricot" yoghurt again is mostly mango, with the apricot bringing up the rear so to speak, though still very tasty, I was still drawn to the first much more!
The nutritional information is as follows -
15.4g of which sugars,
2.0g of which saturates.
The selling point for this brand is the fact that it states that it contains "all natural ingredients", this means that I would happily let my son have one, and I have caught him eye-balling them on more than one occasion!
Price wise these were brought from www.asda.co.uk, but are available in many other supermarkets for purchase, and these are currently on offer "2 packs for £2.00". at full price they are retailing at around the £1.40ish mark.
