      Delish..... As Far As Yogurts Go! Lol

      I don't eat many yogurts but will always have one of these black cherry yogurts when we've got them in the fridge. It deffo IS black cherry and not plain cherry like Dooyoo have got in the title because Tesco don't make a plain cherry yogurt.

      You can buy them individually for about 25p in big tubs or get them in packs of 6 with 2 other flavours, I usually get the big ones because this is one of the only yogurts I like from the Tesco own range and I wouldn't want to eat the strawberry or raspberry ones that come with the multipacks.

      I never believed it was low fat until I checked the pot one day because it tastes lovely and creamy, it's got a proper nice sweet flavour that tastes like fresh cherries as well as it being a cherry flavoured yogurt. There are big pieces of cherry in the yogurt and they pop nice when you bite into them, they have got a wickedly fresh taste and when you bite them you get the real taste of fresh cherries. Yummy!!!

      The yogurt is nice and thick and has got a gorgeous creamy texture, it's filling like eating a Muller Light yogurt and has got a fruity flavour that you'd be able to tell straight away that it was cherry and I don't think any one would get it mixed up with another flavour.

      I think it's sweet enough to be filling if you're starving and waiting for dinner to be done and is also perfect for if you feel like munching something but don't want to eat anything too heavy. I love the taste and texture of it and quite often have it for breakfast if I can't face cereal or anything else, yogurt is SOMETHING and will stop you grabbing a bag of crisps come 10am!

      Recommended..... delish fruity yogurt that is filling and doesn't cost a fortune like Muller!!!!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good medium quality yogurt with not too many calories

        I recently bought a six pack of these yogurts, 2 x strawberry, 2 x raspberry and 2 x black cherry and was very pleasantly surprised at the flavour, texture and consistency of them. I have to say that the black cherry is my favorite. As luck would have it the raspberry is my daughter's favorite so there are no arguments over who has which one!

        The six pack is not a Tesco value range but it is a low priced product - £1 for six. The yogurts, while not thick and creamy - well you can hardly expect that for 6 for £1 - do have a reasonable consistency - not too thin and runny, and they do have chunks of fruit in them. I do prefer to buy "live" yogurt as I feel that they are better for you but this range while not "live" does have a very good flavour and is a reasonable snack at around 100 calories per pot.

        The pots are tesco branded and each contain 125g of low fat yogurt.
        The allergy advise advises that they contain milk - I would expect that as yogurt is made from milk! The recipe contains no nuts but they cannot guarantee nut free as they are produced in a factory also producing nut products. They are suitable for vegetarians and as far as I can see from the packet they contain no artificial preservatives although it does not state that.

          good value for money

          I have tried both the black cherry and the strawberry low fat yogurt from tesco. I am not aware of any plain "cherry" low fat yogurt, I think Dooyoo forgot the "black" bit.

          It comes in a pot of 150 grams and it is really low fat, with 4.1 gramms of fat and 147 calories.

          The packaging is unusual for a yogurt, although I have seen some Greek yogurts packaged like it. It really like on the photo on Dooyoo, with a quite flat pot.

          The one I bought comes in a box of 4 which you need to separate from each other. I found that it was better and easier done with a knife, that by simple folding the yogurts, with the possible danger of one of them exploding ini my face.

          They are cheap (I do not recall how much, but surely less than one Pound for 4 of them)

          They taste good and the colour of the cherry one is kind of white stained by the cherrys (yes, black cherrys to be precise)

          I like this yogurt and I will buy it again

            Disadvantages

            Really tasty but far healthier options available

            Tesco Low Fat Cherry Yoghurt

            This is part of a range of low fat yoghurts by Tesco that come in small, wide, circular pots, are dark blue in colour and come in lots of different flavours including strawberry, toffee and hazelnut.

            I like yoghurt and I like cherries but I love this yoghurt. The pot is good quality, looks nice and has an easy peel back lid; you can easily identify the flavour, as there are pictures on each lid.

            The yoghurt has large chunks of juicy cherry and tastes really sweet and creamy. The consistency is just slightly thicker than standard yoghurt. I found it difficult to believe when I was eating this yoghurt that it was actually low in fat. I have a very sweet tooth and love nothing more than chocolates and desserts but I do quite often swap desserts for one of these yoghurts.

            Nutritiously the yoghurts are low in fat but there are far lower fat yoghurts available on the market. Each pot contains 150grams and per 100grams the yoghurt contains 90kcals and 1.7g of fat. Another possible drawback is the sugar content. Each pot contains more than 20% of an adults RDA of sugar, which is an awful lot of sugar for yoghurt. Kind of explains the great taste

            Overall-
            A really nice tasty product but not as low in fat as many other yoghurts and high in sugar

              Great if you're not dieting

              For some reason, it seems to be in vogue at the moment to have fruit flavoured yoghurt which doesn't have any fruit in. I'm not sure why this is - I'm sure these super creamy super smooth yoghurts are all very nice, but if I have a cherry yoghurt I damn well want to see some cherries.

              It seems to get what I want I need to head, not for the super-expensive yoghurts but for the cheap ones. Tesco's low-fat yoghurt line are only 22p each and there, as requested, are great big lumps of cherry.

              It's quite a runny yoghurt, which can cause some issues when opening it - there's always that risk you'll end up with little drops of yoghurt everywhere. This is not the yoghurt you want if you're looking for thick and creamy.

              It is rather nice though. Sweet, and with lots and lots of cherry. There's no doubt what flavour THIS yoghurt is.

              How healthy is it? Well, it's got 20.7g of sugar, so that explains WHY it's so nice and sweet. 2.6g of fat and 135 calories, so despite the low fat label I'm not sure it would be so good for those on calories.

              For my non-dieting self though, it's lovely. I'll be getting this again.

                Worth a shot.

                Once again I find myself eating for the purposes of a review, and as if sitting around at home on this site wasn't enough reason to make you put on the pounds. I guess that's why I should be thankful that the product I am reviewing today is of the low fat variety, in Tesco Low Fat Yoghurt. There's a picture of a strawberry on the top as well so I will presume that's the flavour, and oh yeah it does have text saying strawberry on the side so there is the confirmation.

                With so many yoghurts to choose from I think the yoghurt companies have to really take notice of the size and shape pots their customers want, as well as making them as healthy as possible. You see to find that all these diet yoghurts aimed at women will come in these pots that hardly dip at all - but are quite large in width - is this some sort of selling point to make people think they're eating less than they are? This yoghurt is 150g in size. Looking around the pot the blue and red are there as the primary colours, and this is first demonstrated in the lid. Whilst the lid is blue, telling you what the product is and the use by date, the bit to pull to open the lid is red. Now that's easy opening. The yoghurt should be used by 30th May as well, so this is quite long lasting.

                I would say that the lid of the pot is made from quite a good heavy material, in that it doesn't feel like my finger would go straight through it. You are advised that this product is suitable for vegetarians, but DO NOT FREEZE it so that your vegetarian cousin can eat it when he comes to visit. As typical Tesco products do, it tells you it's nut free but then says it cannot guarentee that the product is nut free. How does it fair on the ingrediants and nutiritional side of things?

                Ingrediants: Strawberries and strawberry juice from concentrate (12%), sugar, glucose-fructose syrup, beetroot juice from concentrate, flavouring.

                Per 100g:
                Energy 380 kJ/90kcal
                Protein 4.2g
                Carbohydrate 14.4g
                of which sugars 13.8g
                Fat 1.7g
                of which saturates 1.1g
                mono-unsaturates 0.5g
                polyunsaturates 0.1g
                Fibre 0.0g
                Sodium 0.1g

                So lets see how this one serve yoghurt serves up. The lid does open easy and typically there is yoghurt stuck to the lid. Leave your nose there for a few seconds and you will begin to smell the strawberry. A vivid pink colour with hits of little red strawberry bits shows that this is no value product. Now with the lid licked clean, I can get into the actual pot, which proves what I was saying earlier about the size of the thing. Put your spoon in vertically and the depth of the yoghurt doesn't even cover half of it. Lucky for all the extra width room in this circular pot.

                I've never been a fan of pips and the such in food, eating a product and then getting a nasty surprise in your teeth like that isn't nice. I would say the bits of strawberry in this pot don't effect my enjoyment at all, in fact you hardly know they're there. Perhaps the reason they are there is because they manufacture it in a cheap way, and some bigger bits of strawberry just get left to save cost, I don't know - but they're certainly not big lumps of fruit. As far as the taste of the yoghurt in general goes, I wouldn't say the taste lives up to the colour. Whilist it is nice and pleasent, I would say the strawberry taste is only a hint really compared to some other yoghurts out there on the market. Still, very happy to sit and eat it as an alternate dessert and I doubt it would have you going hunting in the kitchen for more, staying true to its low fat slogan.

                The texture of the yoghurt is smooth and quite runny, but no one wants a thick yoghurt. The thicker bits of yoghurt do collect round the side, like they do in most instances. Having almost finished the pot now it's true that the 'strawberry bits' do range in sizes drastically, although there's only one that I think could truly qualify as a 'bit', the rest are completely unnoticeable proving that this is a yoghurt for EVERYONE. Although I don't expect to see the Queen eating it.
