“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Yoghurts „
I often eat yoghurt and they are a standard snack product that I like to keep in the fridge. Recently I seem to have noticed that the price of yoghurts and similar chilled dessert items have been rising bit by bit and I'm a bit fed up of paying over the odds for my usual groceries. Thankfully supermarket own-brands are available to bring that cost back down. I spotted these bargain yoghurts in Tesco, where they are part of the Value range. One yoghurt costs just 13p, which is a great saving when compared to the £1.50-£2.00 I was spending on my usual 4-pack of low fat yoghurts.
This yoghurt comes in a little plastic pot sealed with a peel-back foil lid. They are individually packaged and each tub weighs in at 125g, which is a reasonably sized serving for this sort of product. The design is plain and simple to fit in with the basic blue and white Tesco Value range. It looks cheap and isn't particularly appealing in appearance, but for 13p I wasn't particularly bothered about how the packaging looked. Besides it will just go into my recycling box once I'm finished with it anyway.
The yoghurt itself is a nice pale pink colour and has a mainly smooth texture. I also spotted a few chunks of real strawberry pieces in there, which I had not expected. I assumed as this was a low cost item that it would be a simple puree, and that was the case for the majority as the base of the yoghurt is a simple creamy puree with a light and runny consistency. The strawberries are a bit soft and taste like canned fruit once it's been soaked in syrup, but they add a bit of variety to the yoghurt and stop it from being plain and boring. I don't usually like yoghurts or fruit juices with bits in, but these bits were harmless enough as they were so soft and di not contrast with the overall smooth feeling texture. The flavour was pleasant and sweet without being too artificial.
Each yoghurt contains 100 calories, which is not bad for a snack item, and I often eat yoghurts in-between or after meals as they are simple yet filling. They are also nice to have at breakfast time alongside some cereal, or with fresh fruit for some extra vitamins. I was surprised that a Value range product would be low fat, but cheking the nutritional contents showed that there is less than 1g of fat per 125g yoghurt, which is very good indeed. The bad news is that there is nearly 20g of sugar.
I think these yoghurts are a super item from the Value range, and the price of just 13p is incredible. I enjoy the taste of these and will happily substitute my normal branded yoghurts with these ones in the future. The low amount of fat is also a good thing, and they make a perfect snack or accompaniment to a meal. A good job from Tesco that will help me save some pennies on my grocery bill.

We eat a lot of yoghurt in our house - in fact we often joke that when we go shopping, half our shopping is dairy based. So we know a lot about what makes a good yoghurt!
I decided to buy a couple of these value yoghurts a few weeks ago as they're so cheap - at just 13p each I decided I could live with them not being that great. But they're actually surprisingly good!
They taste really nice and don't have the bitter artficial sweetener after-taste that some low fat yoghurts have. The colour is also reassuringly strawberry-ry (pink) without looking too bright.
There are no chunks of fruit in these yoghurts which may be a downside for some people but I hate having "bits" in my yoghurt so that suits me fine!
The yoghurt is quite thin, but again I don't find that a problem.
With 100 calories a pot, they make a nice addition to breakfast or a lunch box, or a dessert after dinner in the evenings.
For 13p I think they're great value and just as nice as strawberry muller light (which I also buy).
I must admit this whole redundancy thing is starting to stink, and I'm really having to make drastic cutbacks so that we can keep our heads above water financially. One of the ways I have been doing this is by buying the "value" products from supermarkets rather than buying branded items. I find it is a bit of a gamble. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose!
Tesco do a value yoghurt range, with a four pack of yoghurts costing a mere 40p. I was prevoiuysly buying lots of Muller, Shape and Activia yoghurts, so I thought it would be interesting to see how these compare to the more expensive brands.
The strawberry yoghurt comes in a 125g plastic tub with a peel off lid. The tub is plain white, with a picture on the lid of some strawberries, as well as the nutritional information per pot, which is as follows:
So although the product is labelled as low fat, it is still relatively high in calories and sugar, although I will tend to eat one of these instead of a cake, rather than in addition to one! The yoghurts also contain the new "danger" ingredient, Glucose-Fructose syrup, which was warned about recently in newspapers. Apparently, this stuff makes you fatter quicker, so that will lose points! The amount of actual strawberry in the yoghurt is quite low at 3.5%, but I guess you get what you pay for.
The yoghurt is very thin and not at all creamy. I found it a little sour to eat too, and not particularly fruity, although you can see very tiny bits of fruit suspended in the yoghurt. Due to the thinness of the yoghurt, I find that the product is not very filling at all, and leaves you feeling hungry as son as you have finished it.
I'm not mad on these, as you may tell. My daugther quite likes them, but my son won't touch them as they have "bits" in them, and keeps moaning about buying some Muller corners. I think in this particular case, it is worth spending a bit more on a branded product, although I have found the value fromage frais quite creamy and satisfying, so may buy more of them in the future, rather than the yoghurts.
The plastic pots are recycleable where facilities exist, and the product is labelled as suitable for vegetarians. The product does not contain nuts, but due to manufacturing process, Tesco cannot guarantee that the product is nut free, as the equipment used to make the product was previously used to make products containing nuts. However, I suffer from nut allergy and had no problems with these.
In conclusion, I am a bit on the fence with these. They are not particularly healthy, and don't taste great, but they can be refreshing on a hot day and most importantly, are CHEAP. I may or may not buy them again.
Yoghurts are very filling and healthy and there are a lot of brands and flavours to choose from and it is hard sometimes to know which one to choose as the variety is so huge.
I eat most foods and try to eat a balanced diet but I especially love fruity things and this yoghurt is from Tesco Value range and it comes in a nice little carton with the usual colours of the lower branded food, and the carton is recyclable and it was priced at 17p for 125g but I have noticed lately the price has been varying, as a few weeks ago I noticed it was a little higher of around 25p and at one time I have seen it for as low as only 9p, so it is best to try and buy more if found at the lower price.
The contents of the tub is a rich, creamy yoghurt, it is quite thick and good quality, it is not a runny consistency as I thought it at first would be, and the taste is nice and smooth on the tongue, it has tiny parts of strawberry to give it a proper flavour.
It is ideal for a snack or packed lunches and the sell by date is very good of at least 10 days.
Each pot contains 100 calories, 18.6g sugar, 0.9g fat, 0.6g saturates, and a trace of salt.
It is a low fat content product and so it is good for if you are on a diet and also the calorie content is excellent and I think the size of the pot is a good size too.
It is nice to pour over fruit or slice fruit and add it to the pot and it is nice and tasty.
For anyone on a budget it is a fine yoghurt to eat and for the very low price I just think it is excellent value for money.
I do think this yoghurt is a very good one for anyone to give it a go and see if you like it too.
I rate it 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review.
As I am trying to be very good at the moment and cut down on the large quantities of crisps I eat I decided to try alternative snack which were healthier, this being one of them. I am not a fan of yogurts but decided to try one and as this one was such a good price I decided to give it a taste.
The yogurt is from the Tesco Value range so it has a white pot with the blue value logo on the side. Around the side of the pot are all the details for the yogurt including the ingredients and nutritional information. The pot is made from plastic. The lid is made from foil and has the value logo on again and the product name there is also a few strawberries in the background.
Upon removing the foil lid I did notice there was a faint smell of strawberry, this was not too overpowering which is good for me. I was slightly concerned as the yogurt contents only came to just over half way up the pot but it was a nice rich light pink colour and seemed to be a good thickness.
When I dipped my spoon into the yogurt I was surprised by just how thick and creamy it was, I was expecting it to be runnier as this is a cheap variety of yogurt but this was not the case. The yogurt had a very pleasant taste of strawberries and for me I liked it even more as it did not contain large chucks of strawberries as I do not like these so would have had to leave them.
My boys did also try this yogurt and they too enjoyed it as they only usually have the small fromage frais pots so this was a more filling pot for them. They enjoyed the taste and said I tastes a bit like strawberry milkshake.
There was a build up of yogurt around the lip of the pot and on the lid but I was able to use my spoon to scrape this off and it did mix back into the yogurt very easily.
The yogurt comes in a pot which contains 125g. The nutritional values for those wishing to know as this claims to be low fat are:-
Calories - 100
Sugar - 18.6g
Fat - 0.9g
Saturates - 0.6g
Salt - trace
The yogurt is suitable for vegetarians but the pot does give a warning that the machine this was made on did previously make products containing nuts.
The yogurt must be kept refrigerated and used within the best before date, the date on mine were for 1 week so this was a good amount of time.
The ingredients for the yogurt are:-
Water, Sugar, Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Strawberry and Strawberry juice from Concentrate (3.5%), Modified Maize Starch, Thickener (Pectin), Carrot concentrate, Natural Flavouring
The pot and the lid can all be recycled but for my house this means not the recycling bin but a model or a sculpture which my boys have invented!
~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
This is a Tesco Value product so it can only be bough in Tesco stores. It has a very small price tag of 17p which is a complete bargain in my eyes.
As this is my first yogurt in many years and I enjoyed it very much I am definitely going to recommend it, it is quite filling and keeps me away from the crisps. It has a very small price tag and is very tasty. For 17p what have you got to loose by trying it!
I have only discovered that I now like yogurts, for many years my wife tried to entice me to eat them as part of a healthy diet but I did try them but I just never liked them, but when my grandson was born he ate them at my house and I decided to give them a try again and to my surprise I really liked them, I now eat them all the time and take them to work in my lunch box.
I was in Tesco one day and saw this one and thought for the price of just 9p they would probably not be nice tasting but they were delicious and they are very thick and creamy for the Value range.
They are in a little tub which is white with the blue and red logo of the Value range, the top can be pulled back and thrown away very easily and the inside is inviting, it has small little tiny pieces of strawberry and it is not runny and it is quite the opposite, it is thick and creamy.
The tub is a good size of 125g and it contains:
It is very low in calories and for the price I do think it is exceptional value and I put them in a dish sometimes and add fresh fruit on top and it is very filling, they are excellent for a young child to have as a pudding and for school lunch boxes they are good and adults boxes too for work. They are very filling and can easily be taken on picnics, they are best kept in a fridge to serve cold but my daughter puts one in her bag for my grandson to eat as it is a nice little snack for him until meal time.
For anyone on a low budget they are very good value and they for the price of even 5 it is less than than 50p which is brilliant.
I cannot fault this yogurt in any way and recommend it to anyone on a very low budget, I am just pleased I tried it and saved myself some money.
Try it and see if you like it too.
I rate it 5 stars.
I got this Yogurt from Tesco - funnily enough, and it cost a bargain 9p for the 125g tub. I've had budget Yogurts before and although they generally are quite thin in texture, they taste pretty good.
The tub for this isn't that nice looking. Very plain and cheap looking but who cares. It does the job of letting you eat straight from the tub, so that's good enough for me.
This has a stronger taste of Strawberry than I thought it would. I was expecting a very faint taste, but this tasted like loads of fresh Berries and a good quality taste.
As I mentioned this is really runny. Not as runny as water, but not too much thicker than. Certainly not as Thick as Muller Yogurt, and even that isn't too thick. This is a light pink colour and you can see some seeded bits dotted through the Yogurt.
You can get this brand of Yogurt in a few different flavours, but only a few other. More the tradtional flavourings, and nothing too exotic.
I will buy this again as it made a nice quick snack and you can't argue with the price.
Tesco Value Yogurt - Strawberry
I personally usually but the muller light yogurts when i go shopping, they always seem to be on offer and i know there good so i do not usually look at other brands but after trying so many other tesco value products i thought it would be rude not to try this one too especially with how cheap it is.
The yogurt its self tends to retails for less than 10 pence so its already a bargain! the packaging is again what you expect from the tesco value range. Its a small white plastic pot with a foil lid. The pot is wrapped in blue and red ink displaying the product information and the tesco value logo.
The yogurt its self i am also glad to say is very tasty! i am not fully converted and do still prefer the muller light version how this tesco value version really is not far off it. Its just as thick and creamy it just does seem to lack the strawberry flavour but only a little. i defiantly would purchase this product again and would not be disappointed if its was given to me.
As part of a ecomony drive, me and my wife decided to give these a try. Now Im not a big yogurt eater to be honest, but I know what I like, and what I expect in a yogurt.
I have to say, despite these being so cheap, and Tesco Value, they are actually quite similar to a lot of other plain flavoured yougurts on the shelf, that you would pay much more for.
The packaging isnt very eye-catching, with the Tesco Value designs on them, but I dont mind having boring cheap packaging if its saving me money.
The strawberry flavour is quite bland, but it does actually taste of strawberries, even if it is smooth and theres no little bits to give the impression that this comes from real strawberries. I was surpsied how thick the consistenacy is, as normally cheap yogurts are like water.
Its a reasonable size pot too, plenty for a dessert serving. Being low fat, its also a good healthy option, whilst being a little treat at the same time.
The pot itself is quite bendy, so there is a increased risk of these getting squashed and splitting, which did happen to me once before, with the yogurt going everywhere!
For 9p per pot, you get a lot more for your moeny than I expected. Sure they are not going to be the ulitmate best tasting in the world but then again there 9p and they are a nice treat!
Recently more and more products from the Tesco value range have been finding their way into my home and the reason for this is that my wife and I have been fairly happy with most of the things we have tried from the range so are willing to give other things a try and enjoying saving a few pennies along the way.
Last night after my evening meal I tried a pot of Tesco value strawberry yogurt, this yogurt was low fat as most things my wife buy tend to be and when she told me it had cost only 9p I was pretty sure this would be a step too far on the money saving ladder.
I have to say I have had much tastier strawberry yogurts but it was not at all unpleasant, perhaps a little bland in taste and not quite as fruity as the more expensive ones but a good consistency and a fairly pleasant taste none the less.
Nutritional info per pot is as follows:
Calories - 100
Sugar - 18.6g
Fat - 0.9g
Saturates - 0.6g
My wife and I both agree that these are ok yogurts and we would be happy to recommend that others try them but as big yogurt eaters we have decided that we would rather stick to our preferred brand whilst we can still afford the 30p per pot difference in price but should money ever become tight then these would be a very satisfactory replacement.
Tesco Value Yogurt - Strawberry
Description: Manufacturer: Tesco / Type: Yoghurt.
The Tesco Value range, how could anyone not love it? It means that I am not spending extra money on glossy packaging (which only gets chucked away anyhow) and the standard of the actual products tends to be a lot better than I used to expect. In fact, I have become a convert to these ranges, which may look cheap and nasty, but usually hide pretty good products inside.
On this premise, I bought the Tesco Value strawberry yogurt which cost an astounding £0.09. Yes that is right, it isn't a typing error, it genuinely did cost just £0.09!
The Tesco Value range uses the same plain white and blue packaging for all its products, so it is quite easy to spot on the shelves.
When you first open the foil lid, you will notice that the yogurt inside is quite pale. It isn't as pink as I had expected, more of a rose white shade. The smell isn't very strong either and smells more of plain yogurt in my opinion then strawberry.
The consistency is actually quite thick, and it tastes creamy too which is nice. There are no big chunks of fruit though, just little pieces which was a bit disappointing.

I found these yogurts to be a little bland and not as strong as I would have liked. They were nice enough, and because they are thick and creamy, go well over chopped fruit, but alone, they are a little boring.
I would probably buy these again, but perhaps along with some strawberries to give them a bit more flavour. It is a shame that there isn't more chunks of fruit in them because that would have made them more exciting. Having said that, if you are a fan of quite plain yogurts then you may find that these appeal to you.
3 stars from me because these could have been better!
Ive just enjoyed one of these so thought I'd tell you all what I think! I am back on the weight watchers plan now and although I am watching my weight, I am also trying to watch the pennies, especially in the run up to christmas. When I'm on a diet I usually opt for Muller Lights but these retail at about 50p a pot, therefore when I eyed these in Tesco at just 9p a pot (yes you did read that right!) I thought I'd grab a few of these.
The packaging is very basic and looks exactly the same as shown in the picture above. It is the same as all other Tesco value products, predominantly white in colour with dark blue detailing. The lid is made of foil and is a bit more detailed with some pictures of strawberries. The pots also tell you the nutrition of each yoghurt and that they are suitable for vegetarians. Each pot weighs 125g so it is a good size for a yoghurt, however it is worth noting that Muller Lights weigh 200g so a considerable amount more. Currently, other than natural yoghurt, this is the only low fat yoghurt that the Tesco value range offers, there are no alternative flavours in singular pots (there is however a multipack of 4 different flavours for 29p).
Peeling back the lid I was greeted with a nice pale pink yoghurt, there were quite a few bits of fruit in there but the yoghurt itself looked quite runny. Taking a spoonful I noticed that it was quite thin however it was not so thin it would slide off the spoon. Putting it into my mouth I was greeted by a lovely strawberry flavour, it was quite subtle but at the same time you could taste the strawberrys. It tasted fresh and the strawberry pieces were soft, easy to eat. The yoghurt did not taste at all synthetic. I find that these yoghurts are good for a snack, they keep me going for a good few hours. I imagine they would also be nice poured over weetabix for breakfast.
Each yoghurt contains 100 calories, 18.6g sugar, 0.9g fat (0.6g saturates) and trace of salt. That isnt bad bar the sugar but I have found that most fruit yoghurts out there contain a lot of sugar, mainly from the sugar from the fruit itself. If you are following the weight watchers plan each yoghurt is 1.5 points.
I really enjoyed these yogurts and will continue to buy them as in my opinion, they represent excellent value for money. Although the yoghurt itself is quite thin, the yoghurt has a good taste and the fruit pieces are juicy and very nice. I recommend you all to try them!
The 'Value' brand from Tesco has the same packaging throughout which is basically a plain white background with red and blue detailing and print. I wouldn't say that the Value brand looks particularly good nor is it eye-catching but when you see some of the money that you can save by switching to this brand from what you would usually buy this doesn't seem all that important!
One item in the Tesco Value brand that I have bought recently to try out is the "Low Fat Strawberry Yogurt" which costs 9 pence for a little 125g pot of yogurt... lets face it you cant go too wrong for that price!
Peeling off the foil-backed lid, I can see that the yogurt is a pale sort of 'pink' colour and there are one or two little lumps floating in the yogurt and these turn out to be very small lumps of fruit.
I don't find that the little pieces of fruit are too sweet in the same way that other yogurts can be and I thought the pieces in the Tesco Value yogurt were nice and tasty.
If your preference is to have a yogurt with an abundance of fruit pieces in it then you probably wouldn't be overly impressed with the Tesco Value yogurt. As it goes I don't really mind how much fruit is in my yogurt so this Tesco one didn't disappoint me. I thought that the strawberry taste in the yogurt wasn't overly sweet which meant I didn't find it sickly to eat.
The plastic tub has info on it to tell me it can be recycled so I always do. I can see that the 125g tub of yogurt contains 100 calories which isn't the lowest when you look at other brands in the supermarket...... but it is not the worst either so bear this in mind!
I will buy the yogurts again as I have found them to be very satisfactory and nicely sweetened.
As the recession is biting i'm finding it more and more hard to justify paying high prices for branded names. So I have switched to try value products. for just 9p this yogurt isn't one to be left on the shelf. Yes the packaging is a bit dull and doesnt look very appealing but with my bank balance dwindling, I decided to give them a go.
When I first opened the pot i get a hit of the smell of strawberry yogurt as I would with a branded one. The yogurt itself does look a bti thiner than the usual thick yogurts you pay 60p for but I'm not complaining, I wouldn't expect it to be thick for 9p!!
There are plenty of lumpy strawberry bits in these aswell so you won't be short of a bit of fruit! You can get them in a 4 pack containing strawberry, peach melba, raspberry and black cherry. this pack of 4 costs 27p! thats a weeks worth of lunchtime yougurts for work for the cost of a daily newspaper! And they are low fat too so not going to head straight for your hips!
During my most recent shopping trip to Tesco I found myself buying some Tesco value range strawberry yogurts, now I am a fairly big yogurt eater but never one to skimp when buying them and I normally stick to what I know I like.
These seemed incredibly cheap at only 11p per 125g pot, so I thought why not at least try them, they could save me a fortune if they are nice and nice is exactly what they are so it was 22p well spent on the two pots I bought.
The packaging is the typical white with blue stripes that comes with all Tesco value products and this does not make the yogurt seem very appetizing but once opened and the delicious strawberry aroma can be smelled and the beautiful pink yogurt can be seen then that all changes.
The yogurt is slightly runnier than the branded yogurts which is a bit of a down fall but it doesn't bother me that much, the next point will be an advantage for some and a disadvantage for others and that is the lack of fruit pieces, personally I enjoy smooth yogurt so this is a plus for me but if you like chunks of fruit then this will be a letdown to you.
Overall the taste consistency and the price make this a must buy for me, a truly delicious yogurt at an unbelievably low price and it only has 0.9g of fat per pot too which is quite good compared to other yogurts.
