I have been trying to save dosh on my weekly shop and when I was looking around for some bargains I found the Tesco Everyday Value low fat yoghurt was only 45p at the moment. The price is for a really big 500g tub too.
I like fruity smoothies so I buy several tubs of yoghurt a week. Sometimes I buy the fruit flavoured ones but I know that I shouldn't because of all the sugar they stuff in. So with a new year resolution to be healthier,it's plain yoghurt for me now and the Tesco one is the cheapest I can find. I am really impressed with the taste of this because it is exactly the same as the most expensive ones, you could definitely do a blindfold test with this one and no one would know how cheap it is. It has a nice texture too, but you might have to stir it a bit as you get a few lumps. I don't bother if I am making a smoothie because it all gets blended together anyway. I thought the yoghurt would be all thin and watery, but if you stir it it goes nice and creamy. It doesn't taste sweet as some because they haven't put in extra sugar but that's a good thing as it's healthier that way, and low fat too. If you blend this with some fruit, you can't go wrong for a nice healthy drink that tastes good too. I also just add some fruit to it to make a quick pudding that won't pile on the pounds. There is a clear lid to put on once you have pulled the foil one off, which keeps everything fresh and tasting good for a few days. I would recommend this if you want to save money, as it tastes the same as other ones, but costs less so getting it is a no brainer!
I used to make my own natural yoghurt in a flask but recently have been using Tesco Everyday Value Natural Yoghurt, I don't have as much spare time with work and my son and the Everyday Value yoghurt is a good price.
Tesco Everyday Value Natural Yoghurt is sold in large 500g tub which is white and cream in colour, the front of the pot shows the Tesco Everyday Value logo and also informs the customer that this is low fat natural yoghurt and contains no artificial preservatives, flavours or colours. The front of the tub shows small silhouettes of dairy items, bowls and spoons. These are all done in shades of blue as is all the writing.
The back of the tub gives the nutritional values, allergy advice, storage instructions and displays the red tractor symbol ( Assured Food Standard).
The tub has a clear plastic lid which covers a foil seal, once the foil seal is peeled off the plastic lid can be used to keep the yoghurt fresh and covered, once opened it needs to be consumed in 3 days.
Tesco Everyday Yoghurt looks just like any other natural yoghurt, its reasonably thick and not thin watery, it tastes just like regular natural low fat yoghurt, its not sour at all and has quite a creamy taste.
The nutritional values are given per 100g, these are set out clearly and easy to read. 100g of yoghurt contains 65 calories.
Although the product contains no nuts Tesco cannot guarantee it has been produced in a nut free factory.
Price and Availability
With this being a Tesco own brand its only available in Tesco stores or Tesco online, a 500g tub costs 45p which in my opinion is good value.
I've been buying this yoghurt for several months now and have been pleased with it, it has a nice fresh taste and as I mentioned isn't thin and runny. I often eat natural yoghurt but my husband hates it so when we are both going to eat it I add some Tesco oats and fruit, either sultanas or dried apricots. After a while the oats absorb the yoghurt and thicken it up giving you a nice muesli yoghurt which is really lovely.
Sometimes I add it to orange juice to make a yoghurt drink or added to jelly ( when its cooled but still liquid) it sets into a tangy blancmange
If you use natural low fat yoghurt I would certainly recommend trying Everyday Value Yoghurt. On its own its a lovely fresh natural yoghurt but it can be eaten in so many ways. The price and quality are always good and I will certainly continue to buy it.
This is a great everyday value product from Tesco. Priced at 45 p, the product is a real value for money. This yoghurt has a nice creamy texture, not very thick nor very thin. It comes with a long shelf-life, which is approximately 7 days. The everyday value yoghurt comes in a plastic container, which is easy to store and use. For people who consume yoghurt in every meal, this low fat product would be a healthy choice. Recently i tried to make mango lassi, (the one you get at tamatanga) with this yoghurt. The result was mouthwatering with a nice thick texture! This Yoghurt also works well with fruits and can easily replace cream, if you are a health conscious person! In all you would like the taste, texture and packaging and there is no problem with this everyday value product. Therefore, I would rate this product as a five star.
This yoghurt is truly awesome. To start with, at 65p for a pot its an absolute bargain. For the price and the low fat content I was prepared to be suitably unimpressed. However, the opposite occurred. I have tried every major supermarkets own brand cheap yoghurt and this is my favorite. Despite the low calorie content, this is still pretty creamy and thick. It doesn't separate out too much either, so there's no watery bit at the top of the pot. I like the fact tesco still bothered to give it a proper plastic lid to help keep it fresh, and its a decent size pot too.
It is the key ingredient to my everyday breakfast meal! I combine it with weetabix, sultanas and a drizzle of honey plus a piece of fruit to make a healthy, nutritious breakfast that keeps me going for a good few hours before the hunger pangs strike! It lasts 5 days (about 5 spoonfuls is 1/5 of the pot), if I only use it for this purpose. Truth is, its used for snacking, adding to currys and other dishes as well, you can chuck it in anything pretty much. It can also replace mayonnaise in marinades and salads, and cream or creme fresh in dessert.s Its not great with tuna, it just tends to go watery, and i also wouldnt recommend it with chips. BUT apart from that, this is an awesome product for the poor or rich health-concious individual, I actually prefer it to Tesco's more expensive greek-style Low-fat yoghurt.
This has basic packaging, a thin pot (cream coloured with little logos) with a plastic lid that peels off. It hasn't got a clear plastic top for re-sealing it like the more expensive ones but I just pour mine into an air tight box once it's open. (Tubs this size make good plant pots for seedlings if you poke a couple of holes in the bottom).
This is plain, no-frills yogurt but is actually much nicer than I expected it to be. It's a good consistency, nice and thick, not runny. It tastes nice and is fairly creamy and very low fat. I use it often for cooking with in curries, mixing with fruit for breakfast (blueberries, strawberries, chopped banana or apple with a drizzle of honey) and adding to smoothies (when there isn't much interesting fruit in season I blend it with frozen berries).
Compared to other brands this is great value. It's 55p for 500g and the next cheapest one is £1 (Tesco Light Choices) which I've also tried and couldn't tell the difference. I recommend this if you're trying to eat healthily but don't want to spend too much on low fat yoghurts. Lots of low fat, flavoured yogurts contain sweeteners and flavourings, so a couple of tablespoons of this with some chopped fresh fruit would be a healthier alternative.
I'm quite a faddy eater and I make a very concious effort to eat as healthily as possible. This is for many reasons, but mainly because I want to look and feel good, and diet plays a huge part in both of those aspects. I usually have egg on toast or perhaps a bowl of porridge for my breakfast, however I recently bought a smoothie maker, intending to make a smoothie full of nutrients for my breakfast everyday, and so decided to stock up on bits and bobs to go into the smoothies, one of which been Tesco's own value brand of low fat natural yoghurt. I'm not really a yoghurt fan, but because I planned on making it into a smoothie this wasn't an issue as I figuered the taste of the fruit would mask the taste of yoghurt.
I paid 55 pence for the generously sized 500 gram tub of yoghurt, which works out at 11p per 100 grams which I think is a reasonable price - not too cheap but cheap enough. While buying this I had a brief look at the other available brands of natural yoghurt out of interest and saw that a majority of them were more than a pound expensive than this, so I think it's a bargain to be honest!
The yoghurt comes in the usual yoghurt tub, with the colour scheme been primarily blue and white, with the Tesco Value branding in the top left corner. On the back of the pot the ingredients is listed as well as stating the nutritional values. The pot is easy to open and should obviously be stored in the fridge as it's a dairy product. Once opened, consume within three days.
The yoghurt is made from British milk and is not suitable for anyone with a milk allergy, nor is it suitable for nut allergy sufferers as it's not guarenteed to be nut free. It is suitable for vegeterians. The yoghurt itself is a white colour, it looks just like any other yoghurt to be fair. It has thick consistency but it's not so thick that it's gloopy or off-putting! I was actually suprised at how thick it is consdering the price; I was expecting it to have that 'waterred down' kind of consistency but it hasn't at all.
The yoghurt has a smooth consitency too so isn't gloopy or lumpy (eww!) at all. It doesn't have a noticeable scent but it tastes lovely. It's a very rich taste which I found a little bitter on its own but when mixed with nuts and fruit it's gorgeous and adds alot of extra flavour to a simple bowl of fruit or a smoothie. The fact that it contains calcium is also a plus and it's a very healthy, very tasty product which actually tastes higher calorie than it really is if that makes sense and i'd go as far as saying it has that lovely creamy indulgent taste, which I wasn't expecting at all as it's so cheap.
Per 100 grams of this yoghurt has 65 calories, 5 grams of protein, 7.2 grams of sugar and 1.5 grams of fat. The calorie count is good in my opinion as is the protein but I was a little shocked at how high the sugar content actually is considering that this isn't a sweet tasting yoghurt, and it is actually a little bitter when on its own, however the sugar is still reasonably low compared to some other brands so I can't really complain too much!!
I overall would reccomend this yoghurt; it's got a lovely refreshing, rich taste which goes with a range of food, it's affordable and pretty healthy too! 5/5 from me.
---Why I Buy This---
I have been tryig to eat healthier for a while now and trying to incorporate more yoghurt iinto my snacks. I was buying more expensive ones from Tesco and also have an Easiyo machine but as all that was working out quite expensive I decided to give this cheap version a try.
As will all Tesco Value products this comes in a basic thin white plastic pot.
Classed as 'low fat natural yoghurt'.
It used British milk and one fifth of a pot contains 65 calories.
The yoghurt is suitable for vegetarians and is produced in the U.K.
Allergy advice is that it contains milk and cannot be guaranteed nut free.
Keep refriderated and once opened use within three days and by the 'use by' date on the lid.
55p for 500 grams.
(Compared with a 500 gram pot of Tesco Low Fat Natural Yoghurt for £1.)
I was very pleasantly surprised by this yohurt.
Being so cheap and from the Value range I was not expecting much - but it is actually very good.
The texture is thick and creamy - not so thin that it is runny nor so thick that it is set - and it has a certain glossy shone to it.
For myself I find that I use a pot over three days - so I suppose my helpings are a bit large.
This makes a tasty, healthy, snack and is very inexpensive - I keep the yoghurt in the large pot in the fridge, but once opened I cover the top with a piece of foil to keep it fresh - using it over three days means it is within the time-scale recommended on the pot.
I don't think I could find a nicer tasting plain yoghurt - it is not sharp and acidic - but neither is it too sweet - I find it just right for eating on its own and my husband has often bought them to use in his cooking as well - I do not do that - I just eat it straight from the pot.
The yoghurt would be nice for all kinds of desserts and mixed with fruit or muesli - but for me I just have it as it is.
