“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
I've recently tried a few of these Tesco Duo yoghurts, which cost 38p per 175g pot from Tesco or 3 for £1 as part of a long-running special offer. I absolutely loved the chocolate crunch duo I tried, so I was hopeful I'd like some of the others from the range. Sadly that was not the case! This Strawberry Duo mix was probably my least favourite.
I opened up the peel-back lid to reveal what looked like an appetising little treat. There was a generous helping of yoghurt in a little square section, accompanied by a large glop of strawberry compote which was housed seperately in a little rectangular pot on the side of the yoghurt square. The idea is that this packaging keeps the topping fresh, and you add the compote to the yoghurt by tipping the smaller divided section into the larger one. This is the same as you get with Muller Corners, only cheaply made.
It was when I was tipping up the fruit compote that I first started to hesitate about this. It was really gloopy and slimey, with a lot of stringy bits running through. I was expecting something a little smoother and more jam like than what I got. It really put me off quite a bit, but I decided I had to eat it to make up my mind properly.
I wish I hadn't bothered. The yoghurt was tangy, sour and not very pleasant at all. I actually don't mind natural yoghurt as a general rule, though of course I prefer sweeter yoghurts usually. But this, well it tasted like it had gone off almost. At first taste it was acceptable, but swallowing it meant it hit every sour tastebud in my mouth and really set me off. And the compote? Well that was every bit as nasty as it looked. It didn't taste very strawberryish, it wasn't particularly sweet or juicy, and it was every bit as slimey and horrid as I had anticipated it would be.
I really wouldn't recommend this, even for the low price. An extra 15p to get yourself a nice Muller Corner really isn't a lot given how truly terrible this cheaper alternative is.
