      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A tasty, healthy treat

      Total Greek Yoghurt with Honey is a delcious treat. I use these to perk up my lunch if I'm just having some sandwiches or something like that. They make a wonderful dessert and are quite healthy as well.

      I pop these in the fridge when I get to work in the morning as they do need to be refrigerated. The honey does stay runny however, which is unlike the honey I have at home which solidifies a bit when it gets cold.

      When ready to eat these yoghurts you do have to carefully peel back the foil wrapper,particularly over the honey pot as this gets very, very sticky. As you would expect it to - it's honey! You will want to use a small teaspoon to move the honey to the yoghurt compartment. It is difficult to scrape up absolutely all the honey but this doesn't really matter much to me as there is plenty of honey in there anyway and using all of it would make the honey too sweet in my opinion.

      The yoghurt itself is 2% but tastes like full fat yoghurt. It is extremely thick and creamy and very satisfying. I love Greek yoghurt in general as it tastes so much more luxurious than regular yoghurt which is always quite thin and watery in comparision. There is no watery feeling to this yogurt whatsoever. It is absolutely lovely.

      Without the honey the yoghurt would taste very sour. As you mix the honey in and start to eat, if you don't mix it extremely well you will get definite hints of sour flavour in with the sweetness of the honey. I really enjoy the contrast between these two flavours.

      As I mentioned before the honey stays nice and runny even when it gets quite cold. It has a nice, sweet taste which is perhaps slightly sweeter than most honeys to my taste.

      Total Greek Yoghurt with honey contains 119 calories per 100 grammes, and there are 150 grammes in one container of yoghurt, making it about 180 calories per serving. This is a reasonable calorie count for a dessert I think. The average chocolate bar contains well over 200 calories and is nowhere near as filling or nutritious as this yoghurt. However, there are much lighter yoghurts out there and if you are seriously watching your weight you will want to think carefully about indulging in this one.

        Try some - you will love it

        I have just discovered Fage's Total honey split pots a delicious combination of rich, aromatic honey and creamy Greek yoghurt, It is available in a 150g pot with Total 10% or Total 2% Greek Yoghurt, the Honey Split Pots are a traditional Greek blend that make a great breakfast, snack or dessert. I had mine sitting in the sun the other day and imagined I was in Greece!

        The pot is oval in shape and split into two sections with a foil top which, when peeled back reveals the two compartments which are both filled to the top, one with the delicious thick and creamy yoghurt and the other with very thick, sticky, runny honey.

        I poured and scraped the honey from its section into the yoghurt section, I had to use my spoon to scrape it all out as it is so thick and sticky. I did manage to get some on my fingers and got a bit sticky

        When mixed with the yoghurt it makes a lovely, sweet, creamy snack, and it is healthy too.

        Total yoghurt is 100% natural and contains no artificial preservatives, colours or additives.

        Total Greek yoghurt is made by fermenting milk with live cultures which are supposedly good for your digestive system. Yoghurt contains the same number of calories as milk, but is easier to digest.

        Vegetarians can eat Total Greek Yoghurt. And it's also suitable for diabetics, pregnant women and people on gluten-free diets.

        A bit about Total Yoghurt

        In 1926, Athanassios Filippou opened a small dairy that soon became known for its delicious, creamy Greek yoghurt. The business grew, and in 1964 the company's first yoghurt-producing factory was opened.

        Fage's Total Greek yoghurt was the first strained yoghurt to be successfully launched in Europe. It hit supermarket shelves in the UK, during the early 1980's, and has continued to grow in popularity ever since.

        Fage has come a long way from its humble beginnings. It's now Greece's biggest dairy company, producing fresh milk, cheese and yoghurt for customers worldwide.

        Its state-of-the-art technology means Fage produces 50,000 litres of milk per hour and 500 million pots of yoghurt every year. It's renowned for the unique straining process that gives Total Greek Yoghurt it's characteristic taste and texture.

        Even after all these years, Fage is still a family-run business whose motto is: "We would never make a product that we would not give to our children".

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall, a good quality product but for eating at home.

        I am a yogurt freak - I put the stuff on my breakfast cereal including those chocolate covered rice grains (!), fruit and I happily much it straight out of the pot. I eat it because I like it and possibly because it is supposed to be good for me.

        So anything new in Yogurt world has to be tried. There was a promotion for these a few months ago in my home time and The Other Half and I nabbed some - hey it's free and we were hungry.

        The packaging is similar to the other split yogurt delights whereby the yogurt is in the main compartment and you can use as much or as little of the flavouring or topping as you choose. The lid is the bog standard foil lid that you have to careful with unless you want a very obvious white stain on your clothing for the rest of the day.

        Greek yogurt to me is typically slightly more sour than your usual plain flavoured yogurts. Personally I like that and it works extremely well against the sweetness of the honey of this Total yogurt.

        Like the other split yogurts, if you go for the dry flavouring they are easy to dispense into the main yogurt compartment however the honey is extremely sticky and difficult to dispense so try logging it in with the spoon. There is no really clean and easy way to do this and this may put off parents with kids or taking these out with them as a convenient snack as they will get very messy.

        The yogurt itself is thicker and more creamy than the standards yogurts however this gives it a nice richness. It is thick and holds the spoon well so thus reduces the opportunity for it to plonk down your front.

        The honey is reasonably thick which is nice and rich although a little sweet for some.

        There is a choice of the regular (10% fat) and the lower fat - 2% - yogurt.

        I do like these however I don't think they are a handy and easily accessible snack as they are messy. The yogurt and honey are both very good quality however pricey for what you get. I would rather buy a large tub of yogurt and decant the honey into it as and when I wanted to use it. As they are not wholly convenient to use when out, although they are healthy, it is not necessarily the right option for people as a quick snack unless at home or work and sat somewhere where there is no risk of spills.

        Pricewise, they are in the same region as other similar style yogurts - currently at Sainsburys they are 89p each.

        Nutritional information per 100g
        10% 2%
        Fat 8g 1.6g

        Available as a 150g tub - both splits in total.
