“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
I love yoghurt and the creamery the better.
As I take a couple a shift to work with me I do tend to get threw quite a lot and vary them to help stop the boredom.
I noticed Tesco's own brand yoghurt whilst shopping and thought that at the price of just £1 for 6 pots, why not give them a try.
Each pot is 125grams and they come in numerous flavours; banana, orange, apricot, blackcurrant, strawberry, rhubarb, gooseberry and a few others I can't remember. In the group of six (which you can't split) you get two of each flavour.
This is classed as a low fat yoghurt and it contains 90kcal and 1.3grams of saturated fat (banana flavour). So I would class it as not to bad in low fat terms, you can get lower and if you work on a weight watchers points this would be 1.5 points.
On the back of the pot is the standard nutritional and ingredient information. This also gives you an allergy warning that it contains milk and that although contains no nuts, the factory it is made in may have done. The factory is actually in Germany apparently.
Banana flavour commented on -
On opening the pot with it's peel back thin foil lid, you get a gentle waft of banana, which it thankfully not to strong as I think that would put a lot of people off. The yoghurt is very pale yellow, which is nice as it is banana, but doesn't give the impression that it has been overly coloured.
The texture is creamy and fairly thick - if you hold it of a spoon it plops off rather than runs off. There are no bits in the banana flavour but in some others like strawberry there are. The taste of banana remains in your mouth for a little while after eating as does the creamy texture, but I think this is the case with most yoghurts anyway.
It is a nice little snack pot size and although won't fill you up on it's own, makes a lovely accompaniment to a meal.
At the moment i am trying to reduce our shopping bill. The latest own brand food we have tried is Tesco Low fat yogurts. at £1.20 for six 125gram pots, these are very cheap, at only 20pence each.
There is three varieties of the six pack.
Red Fruits contains two black cherry flavour, two raspberry flavour and two strawberry flavour
Traditional flavours contain two rhubarb, two blackcurrant and two goosberry
Tropical contains two apricot, two banana and two orange.
These yogurts are marked low fat, each pot only contains 120calories, 18g of sugar, and 2grams of fat. For 20pence each these are very good for you. The other varieties vary a bit in nutritional values but are pretty much the same.
The texture is very good, probably one of the thicker yogurts on the market and contains real pieces of fruit which you would expect from higher brands e.g Muller or Ski
The taste of the whole range is very strong, and it is easy to tell what flavour you are eating without even looking at the packaging. The blackcurrant yogurt is a deep purple colour which says to me that the flavours are real, not just added artificial ones. The blackcurrant and Rhubarb ones are lovely.
Overall, if you look at these and keep in mind the price of only 20p per pot, id consider them to be very good. The taste and consistency is spot on, and the price is perfect.
I would happily never go back to top brand yogurts, these are definitely staying on our shopping list!
I always like to have something healthy to snack on after tea and in the evening when I get a little peckish, but its always hard to find something that is great tasting, and healthy too. That's until I discovered and tried these.
For this red 'summer fruits' pack of 6 yogurts, it costs £1. For that, you get 6 reasonably good sized pots, x2 Strawberry, x2 Cherry and x2 Raspberry. For most people, these three flavours are enjoyable, yet vary enough I taste to represent a choice to give to others.
The yogurts themselves are a good basic style, but very tasty. They are simple and plain, but amazingly could pass for premium branded yogurts, for which you would pay a lot more. The texture of the yogurts is quite thick-much thicker than I expected. Its also good to see that they contain real pieces of fruit, and that you can actually taste what flavour they are meant o be, as they are not watered down like so many supermarket branded yogurts.
My particular favourite is the strawberry flavour as it tastes of real strawberry, and is very morish As mentioned earlier, the yogurts are quite healthy, and are low in fat and calories which make them ideal for a snack, as they are quite filling too.
The only trouble I find with these are that the lids are a little flimsy, and 9 times out of 10 the lid doesn't come off in one piece, which means you have to keep pulling bits off until the lid is completely removed which can be a bit annoying, Also a the lid foil is quite soft, its hard to take off the yogurt from the lid easily without making a mess.
Overall, I would say that these are great tasting yogurts, at a fantastic price
Since the festive period has passed, my good lady wife and I have been cutting down a bit on what we eat, not dieting just cutting down and one way we have found to reduce our calorie and fat content is to turn to yogurts instead of rice pudding and other fattening puddings like cheesecakes and ice cream.
On a trip to Tesco I saw a pack of yogurts I was sure I would enjoy, they were Tesco low fat red fruits yogurts and in the pack there was 6 yogurts, two black cherry flavour, two raspberry flavour and two strawberry flavour.
Costing only £1 for the six yogurts I was a little concerned at what the quality of them would be but I needn't have been, they were thick and creamy and did have some noticeable bits of fruit in them.
The black cherry flavour was my least favourite as I felt it had a pretty weak flavour to it compared to the other two.
The strawberry one was very nice and had a nice strong strawberry taste but a creamy taste too which for me is a very good combination, the raspberry one had a lovely tang to it and tasted the strongest of the three and was definitely my favourite.
I would recommend these yogurts to anyone who enjoys the three flavours in the pack because they are nice tasting, good quality, inexpensive and also low in fat.
There are of course better yogurts available but certainly not in this price range.
Each 125g pot has 120 calories and only 2.3g of fat so they are one of the better low fat yogurts on the market with many similar sized pots still containing over 4g of fat.
I guess if you can afford to buy the big brand names then like me you still will but if you are looking for a cheaper alternative then these will do you proud and I still use them from time to time myself just because they are nice tasting and so cheap it is hard to avoid buying them.
In a household of seven (five adults and two children), I find it essential to always have yogurts on hand as a snack or for a little bit of something sweet for after dinner. As you can imagine, nothing lasts long in our fridge, which is why I was attracted to this pack of 6 x 125g pack of yogurts selling for only a pound (or 13p per 100g).
The pack comprises 2 pots of each flavour yoghurt (strawberry, raspberry and black cherry). Each pot contains 110-115 kcal and 2.3g fat (which works out at 1.8g per 100g, therefore qualifying for the official 'low fat' rating which is for 3% of less fat content). Although these nutritional stats are not as low as some may be used to, I think this may be due to the fact that Tesco use sugar rather than artificial sweeteners. Also pleasing to note on the ingredients is that at least 10% of the yoghurts is fruit and fruit juice from concentrate. I'm not sure how this fruit content compares with other yogurts, but I was glad that at least my black cherry yoghurt has come into contact with a black cherry along the way!
I have found occasional difficulties with opening the yoghurts' rather flimsy lids. Sometimes they split as you try and open them, so then you have to remove the lid in a number of pieces. While this is not a great trial for me, I wonder how the children would get on if they had one in their lunchbox...
Once inside though, you can be assured of finding creamy textured yoghurt with some small fruity pieces in it. The colours are as you would expect for each flavour; and while nothing extraordinary, the taste is certainly satisfactory.
All in all, these yogurts are fantastic value for money, if not very exciting, and they are now a regular feature in the weekly food shop.
I've started buying these Tesco yogurts because they are only £1.00 for 6 125g pots. In each pack you get 2 black cherry yogurts, 2 strawberry and 2 raspberry.
I like all of them and even though they're quite thin compared to Muller yogurts they are still quite filling and tasty. Each pot has got about 120 calories and 2.3g fat in so I don't think that's madly low fat at all, but they've all got a nice creamy flavour so that makes up for the higher fat content than I was expecting.
Each pot of yogurt is very fruity and you can tell what fruit it's supposed to be, my fave is the black cherry because that one is the tastiest. It's got a lovely sweet flavour and I can deffo taste the juiciness of the black cherries in the yogurt.
The raspberry one isn't that sweet and if I'm honest it's a bit bland, when I have something raspberry flavoured I expect it to be either sweet or tangy but this yogurt is somewhere in between. You can taste the raspberries in it but I don't think the yogurt tastes much like fresh fruit at all, it's still proper nice though and I think it's the most filling of all of them.
The strawberry one is nice too, it's got a flavour that's a bit like strawberry milkshake only not as sweet. Like the raspberry one I don't think the flavour is very natural but not many yogurts are, especially yogurts that are as cheap as these. The strawberry yogurt in this pack is a bit thinner than the other 2 flavours I think and that spoils it a bit, but it does make them very good for adding to fruit in the blender to make a smoothie!
I recommend these yogurts but really only if you can't afford better that day! That sounds horrible I know but it's true, if I've got enough cash on me for Ski or Muller than I'll buy them but I'll carry on buying packs of these every week to keep in the fridge for when I fancy a yogurt and there's nothing better in there! lol
Both my husband and I take a yogurt to work with us everyday, and so they are always part of my weekly shop at Tesco. Very often Tesco have good offers, such as buy one get one free on some of the branded yogurts, and in those cases I will usually always opt for the deal. However, as I found this week in Tesco, there were few offers on yogurts that appealed, and when this happens I always revert back to Tesco own low fat yogurts.
These yogurts are priced at £1 for 6 little 125g pots of yogurts. There are 3 various sets of flavoured yogurts on offer, however I will just be reviewing the Tesco Low fat red fruits yogurts.
Within this group of 6 yogurts, there are 3 flavours (2 of each). They are strawberry, raspberry and black cherry.
According to the front of the packaging, each pot contains 115 calories, 17.4g of sugar, 2.3g of fat and 0.2g of salt. Not terrible but there are more healthier yogurts on the market.
I am personally a fan of the black cherry yogurts and usually pick those first, leaving hubby with a choice of the others, however, I have tried all 3 flavours, and I can say that all of them have a very pleasant and real taste to them, rather than an artificial taste. They are not the thickest of yogurts in consistency, but neither are they too runny. You can see that it has been made with real fruit, as there are little bits throughout the yogurts. Although, on the side of each yogurt pot, it does warn that Tesco cannot guarantee that there are no traces of nut in the product. However, it does state that this product is suitable for vegetarians.
As I said, I usually only purchase these yogurts, when there are no great offers in the supermarket or what is on offer just doesn't appeal. Both my husband and I find these yogurts perfectly nice and pleasant to eat, but there are probably heatlhier and more delicious yogurts on the market, but is depends how much you are willing to pay. I probably wouldn't want to be buying these all the time, but they certainly are a reasonably priced set of yogurts that are enjoyable. I will continue to purchase these as I do like them, but restrict them to when they are few offers in the supermarket.
