“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
Tesco Finest Lemon Curd Yogurt is a new addition to their Finest range and are currently on offer at 4 for £3.00. A single post costs 79p for 130g, which is expensive for a yogurt, but this a quality yogurt. As expected they can be found in the chilled 'yogurt' section in a supermarket, the pots are Black and have the distinctive Tesco Finest Black and Silver labelling.
Tesco Finest Lemon Curd Yogurt is a duo pot, or otherwise known as a split pot. The pot is divided in two with one half containing creamy Lemon Curd yogurt and the other small meringue pieces. You can choose to add the meringue pieces to the yogurt or eat it separately, but I prefer to mix the two together. The creamy yogurt is very thick in consistency, is pale Yellow and is made with British Milk. It is slightly sweet in taste but does have a little bite to it, as Lemon Curd should. The meringue pieces are shaped into small button-like shapes and are not overly sweet and have a nice crunchy texture.
These yogurts are definitely not your average 'run of the mill' type yogurts such as Muller Light, Shape etc, which in comparison tend to taste very thin and watery compared to Tesco Finest Yogurts. The Lemon Curd yogurt is 'full fat' and therefore has a lot of taste and is thick. It's so thick that the yogurt stays in place if you tilt the pot.
The Lemon Curd yogurt is very filling, so much so that it feels like a meal in itself, however this may be due to it's calorific content. Each 130g pot contains a whopping 243 calories, which is 12% of your daily allowance. The fat content is even greater at 11.6g of fat which is 34% of your daily allowance. As much as I like the Tesco Finest Duo pots, I would not be able to eat a pot after a Sunday Lunch as I would be too full. I also wouldn't contemplate giving a pot to my toddler Son as it would be too rich for him.
Other yogurts in the range include: Toffee, Black Cherry, Strawberry and Vanilla Split pots. I have tasted The Toffee and Strawberry varieties and they are also nice and creamy and make a lovely treat.
Overall, I highly recommend Tesco Finest Lemon Curd Yogurt with meringue pieces. It is a filling treat, one which isn't overly sweet and has a nice Lemon tang. They are high in calories, so I wouldn't have one everyday, but they are definitely worth 79p each.
