      Disadvantages

      A little bit of heaven for just 49 calories. Weight Watchers, bravo.

      Whilst I'm not a member of a Weight Watcher's diet club, we ladies do have to watch our waist lines and this is the reason I came across these delicious yoghurts from Weight Watchers. They come in four different flavours (cherry, raspberry, blackberry and forest fruits.) Blackberry is my personal favourite, for its rich taste and overwhelming sweetness! Each of the yoghurts has a sumptuous layer of fruit on the bottom of the packet and is covered by a luscious layer of fromage frais, which tastes like clotted cream. I dislike the cherry flavour, it tastes bitter to me, although I've always disliked cherries. This isn't a problem, because other members of the family covet this flavour and are more than happy to take it off my hands!

      I am slightly concerned about the ingredients used in the yoghurt, as many do not appear to be natural. If you're extremely health-conscious, please do check the ingredients on the packaging before purchasing.

      Aside from their lovely taste, where these Weight Watcher's treats really win is their low-calorie and low-fat content. Each pot is 49 calories and contains less than 0.5 g of fat. For just a snip in your daily calorie allowance, you get a little bit of heaven. For that reason alone, it is surely worth giving these a try!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Creamy yoghurt and fruity compote - delicious

      As I have mentioned in some other reviews of mine, I started WeightWatchers again just before Christmas. I like buying items from their large range of products as the ProPoints are already calculated and it just makes point counting that little bit handier. Aside from some of the frozen meals which I don't really rate, I have found that WeightWatchers foods are almost always tasty, filling, made with nice ingredients, and reasonably priced.

      I bought the Berry Fruits Fromage Frais as my leader had mentioned it in class, and people seemed to agree that they were really nice.

      The fromage frais comes in a pack of 4 little plastic tubs. They are covered in a cardboard sleeve which gives you all the nutritional information. It also says that these are fat free.

      Each tub is 100g and there are four flavours - cherry, raspberry, blackberry and forest fruits. Upon peeling off the foil lid, you can see that the vanilla fromage frais is thick and creamy; not at all watery or thin.

      Underneath the fromage frais is a layer of fruit compote. I liked the cherry and raspberry varieties best, especially the cherry as I love anything cherry flavoured. All the varieties have bits of whole fruit in the compote. It's nice to mix the fromage frais and compote together but these are really nice eaten separately too. These do contain artificial sweeteners, however I couldn't detect these whatsoever. Sometimes when I have Muller Light yoghurts I can detect an aftertaste of sweeteners but with this fromage frais I really couldn't tell that there were any in it. The fromage frais really is delicious - thick, creamy and not at all like what you'd expect from a low fat yoghurt.

      If you are on WeightWatchers, each little tub only contains 1 ProPoint. If not, these can still be eaten as part of a healthy diet, or just because you fancy a nice fruity yoghurt.

      This fromage frais could also be used in other ways - such as stirred into porridge, spooned over baked apple, or even added to some crushed up meringue.

      These normally cost around £1.50 but I got them on offer in Sainsbury's for £1. I will be buying these regularly from now on even when they go back up to full price.

      Definitely a product to try!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Delicious low calorie fromage frais

        I eat yogurt / fromage frais on a daily basis and usually end up buying a variety of different brands and flavours to prevent me from getting bored of them. Weightwatchers Berry Fruit Fromage Frais are one of my fail-safe options, and I tend to buy a multipack of them at least every few weeks.

        These yogurts come as a four-pack and can be found in most major supermarkets. I shop in Tescos and have noticed that they have increased substantially in price recently - I used to buy them for £1 but now they usually cost £1.50. For this reason, I tend to wait until they're on offer before buying them.

        The pack includes four flavours of fromage frais: blackberry, cherry, forest fruits and strawberry. Each 100g pot contains a generous layer of fruit compote (complete with lumps of fruit), topped with a thick, creamy and slightly sweetened fromage frais. The layers taste great on their own or mixed together and, unlike many multipacks of yogurts I buy, all four flavours taste great.

        Obviously, being weightwatchers products, these desserts are aimed at those dieting or watching their weight and nutrition information (including weightwatchers points values) is displayed prominently on the packaging. Each yogurt contains 47 kcal and the fromage frais are 'fat free' (0.1 - 0.2 grams of fat per pot).

        I'd highly recommend these fromage frais as they taste great and are a fantastic low-calorie yet tasty option when you fancy something sweet. They round off a meal well, and I also like to eat them as snacks or for breakfast.

          Ok Products From Weight Watchers

          Ok, I'll actually only be reviewing two of these in terms of taste as Boyfriend has snaffled the other two. For the sake of information and completeness I will include the relevant ingredients and nutritional information for the other two flavours.

          So, that's the two that Boyfriend snaffled out of the way. Now for the other two.


          The Raspberry One:

          Ingredients: Fromage Frais, Water, Raspberry (11%), Fructose-Glucose Syrup, Oligofructose, Boysenberry, Modified Maize Starch, Stabilisers: (Pectin, Locust Bean Gum, Guar Gum), Red Fruit Juice from Concentrate, Flavourings, Acidity Regulators: (Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate), Sweeteners: (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Preservative: Potassium Sorbate

          Sodium: 0.05g
          equivalent as salt: 0.1g


          Opinion:

          Looking through the pot I can see a dark coloured layer of fruit at the bottom of the pot. This is topped by the fromage frais, some of which appears to be a light shade of pink whilst the very top of it is still white. Pushing my spoon into the fromage frais I take a taste. It's fairly thick by the taste of it remind me a little of those cheap mousses you can buy for kids. The fruit isn't bad although I can taste the seeds in the raspberries so if you don't like seeds in your yogurt this is one to avoid. All in all though the pot seems rather small and it's all gone in a few mouthfuls. On the plus side it's not particularly noticeable that they've used artificial sweeteners in this product. There isn't any of that artificial aftertaste you sometimes get when they've used too much of the stuff.

          Overall, this was just an "ok" yogurt. I wouldn't be in any hurry to buy it again.


          The Cherry One:

          Ingredients: Fromage Frais, Cherry (15%), Water, Oligofructose Syrup, Fructose-Glucose Syrup, Fructose, Modified Maize Starch, Acidity Regulators: (Calcium Lactate, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid), Colours: (Anthocyanins, Beetroot Red), Stabilisers: (Locust Bean Gum, Xanthan Gum), Flavourings, Sweeteners: (Aspartame, Acesulfame K), Preservative: Potassium Sorbate.

          Allergy advice: Contains Milk

          Nutritional Information per 100g

          Energy kJ: 274kJ

          kcal: 64kcal
          Protein: 5.3g
          Carbohydrate: 10.8g
          of which total sugars: 9.1g
          Fat: 0.1g
          (of which saturates): <0.1g
          Fibre: 1.0g
          Sodium: 0.05g
          equivalent as salt: 0.1g


          As with the Raspberry flavour I can see a dark coloured layer of fruit at the bottom of the pot, although there appears to be more of it in this pot. Again, this is topped by the fromage frais, some of which appears to be a light shade of pink whilst the very top of it is still white. No prizes for guessing that the fromage frais in this pot is exactly the same as it is in the Raspberry pot. What surprised me however was the difference here once I'd mixed the cherry layer and the fromage frais compared to the taste I got when I mixed the fromage frais with the raspberry layer. It was fruity, cream and actually quite nice! This one is definitely the better of the two. The fruit and the fromage frais combine well together to create a pleasing taste experience. I wonder whether this is down to the fact that the fruit layer is bigger in this pot than it was in the Raspberry one?

          Once again, it's not particularly noticeable that they've used artificial sweeteners in this flavour.



          Of the two flavours that I've tried then, it's easy to say that I preferred the Cherry flavour to the Raspberry one. As nice as the Cherry flavour was there are better yogurts out there on the market. The fact that these are also quite small pots means that I'll probably won't be buying these again.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Tasty, feels like a naughty treat.

            Four years ago I lost 2 and a half stone through the Weight Watchers plan and during that time I bought quite a few products from Weight Watchers' food range. I still like to buy some of their products now and these layered fromage frais are my favourite.

            A pack contains four fromage frais, each one a different flavour. In the case of the berry fruits pack the flavours are Blackberry, Cherry, Forest Fruits and Raspberry. The pots are smaller than a yoghurt but big enough for a delicious snack or pudding.

            Through the semi transparent pot you can see the layer of fruit compote beneath the fromage frais. The layer of fruit compote is about 20% of the pot with the other 80% being the fromage frais. On peeling back the film lid, the white creamy fromage frais smells slightly fruity and tastes delicious with a hint of the fruit that is hiding at the bottom of the pot. The fromage frais is sweet without tasting artificial and sugary and, although with some foods the taste and flavour can be reduced in a 'diet' food, it is impossible to tell with these fromage frais which is great because you feel like you're having a nice treat minus the saturated fat and calories!

            The fruit compote at the bottom doesn't disappoint either, very fruity, with pieces of fruit in it, and the cherry one is particularly nice if you like slightly tangy cherries. Yum!

            These desserts contain 0.1g of saturated fat and they are billed as being fat free on the packaging which is virtually true. There are 64 or fewer calories per pot depending on which flavour you have. Raspberry scores best with only 51 calories, then Forest Fruits with 62 and Cherry and Blackberry both have 64 per 100g (which is per pot as 1 pot = 100g). In Weight Watchers' terms there is only 1 point per pot which is fab considering how well these satisfy the old urge for something naughty!

            Although these desserts are low in calories and sat fat, the sugar content is quite high as with most yoghurts. The sugar content ranges from 5.7g up to 9.1g depending on the flavour again. However, they are delicious, fit in well with a calorie controlled diet or just for a low cal treat every now and again. I love them!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Fruity thick fromage frais - one for the shopping list.

              I have just enjoyed one of the most delicious fruit fromage frais desserts that I have ever had, and I have to tell you it is one from the Weight Watchers range.
              I know very little about Weight Watchers but I do know that I could easily afford to lose a few pounds.

              These Weight Watchers fruity fromage frais desserts were in the chiller at my local discount store and I paid just 60p for the four. To be honest I wasn't totally convinced about them and it was one product that I was in no particular hurry to test.
              There are four Weight Watchers berry fruits layered fromage frais in each pack, each pot contains 100g of dessert and the fat free fruity fromage frais contains 64 calories per pot - or less.
              If you are a member of Weight Watchers then these pots of fromage frais are worth one point and they contain 0.1g of saturated fat.

              The outer cardboard pack made an interesting read, for example it informed me that women need to consume in the region of 2000 calories a day and men need 500 more per day.
              Weight Watchers also point out that their foods used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle can help you to control your weight.

              As I pulled the foil lid away from the pot of fruity fromage frais I was quite surprised, I had expected to see an insipid watery mixture but instead I was greeted with a pot that was brimming with good thick vanilla fromage frais.
              If you look at the pot you can see that there is a thick layer of fruit sitting in the bottom. I picked the cherry dessert to test first, I just love cherries.
              Weight Watchers have made sure they have made the most of those 60 plus calories, the thick vanilla fromage frais looks and tastes rich and creamy. I like to hook the fruit compote up from the bottom of the pot and mix it into the plain fromage frais and what a lovely surprise, the layer of cherry compote was really thick, deep and extremely fruity.
              The cherries had not been chopped too small either, the pieces of fruit were tasty and tender.

              After finishing off the contents of the pot I had come to a decision, if Weight Watching was meant to be boring then this was one food that no one could call tiresome. The whole dessert was scrummy from start to finish.
              In the pack there are four different flavours that include blackberry, raspberry, forest fruits and cherry. I have three pots left and now I look forward to enjoying the remainder.

              These Weight Watchers desserts are manufactured by Yoplait Dairy Crest in Telford.
              The fromage frais is sweetened using natural sugar and sweeteners, it is suitable for vegetarians and it contains a source of phenylalanine.
              If you are allergic to milk then these are not for you.

              On the top right hand corner of the outer cardboard casing there is a little box that contains information about the Weight Watchers group, there is a national telephone number that you can contact.

              I have to say that I was more than impressed with the product, the thick vanilla fromage frais is superb and the fruit compote is plentiful. The dessert is sweet but not sickly and one pot full is perfect for either a sweet or a snack.
              I was thinking about all of those who need to take a packed lunch to work with them, if you are trying to be good then it would be a brilliant idea to stick a pot of the Weight Watchers fromage frais into your lunch box.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Satisfy Your Sweet Cravings

                Introduction

                I am very partial to eating sweet desserts, sometimes indulging just a little too often!!! I however was shopping in Tesco recently and while purchasing my usual yogurts to keep my son happy I noticed a selection of weight watchers fromage frais on promotion so decided that instead of my usual profiteroles and chocolate cake that I would buy these instead. Well it is coming up to the summer holidays and losing a few pounds will not do me any harm. I am past the stage of wearing bikinis however I prefer to have as few lumps and bumps in my swimming costume as possible!!!! This package of four pots of the dessert only cost me £1 and although I am not a follower of weight watchers diets I noticed that the packaging stated that these were fat free so that was enough for me to decide to purchase the products. Although it took a lot of self restraint to walk past the choc puds.


                The Product

                The product name in full is Weight Watchers Berry Fruits Layered Fromage Frais. Although they sport the weight watchers name they are in fact made by Yoplait for the company. As most of you will know Yoplait make a wide range of yogurts and chilled fruit drinks which in my opinion are absolutely delicious. Apparently if you follow the weight watchers points programme each little pot is the equivalent of one point. I would imagine that this would be fine to eat then as part of a calorie controlled diet if eaten in moderation. There are four different flavours in the pack which are made up of Blackberry, Cherry, Forest Fruits and Raspberry.

                The Taste Test

                Each individual 100g pot is made up of vanilla flavoured fromage frais with fruit compote in the above flavours and contains sugars and sweeteners. They are fat free containing 0.1g of saturated fat. In addition they contain less than 64 calories per pot. I tried each of the desserts and have to say that I was extremely satisfied with the taste of each one. The pots are split up into two separate layers. The top is made up of a creamy fromage frais consistency which has a very subtle vanilla taste rather delicious if I say so myself. There is a bottom layer of fruit which actually contains real fruit for a change which is quite refreshing and not that horrendous slush which often pretends to be fruit. Hope that makes sense. Each compote is smothered in a delicious sauce which corresponds to the flavour of the product you are eating. Cherry etc. It is absolutely delicious and extremely moreish. So much so that I ate all of them one after the other. I will certainly be buying these again they taste so nice and are very satisfying if you want to rid yourself of a sweet craving in a healthy way. (Perhaps not recommended then that you eat them one after the other like I did). These products are also suitable for vegetarians. They according to weight-watchers can help slimming or weight control as part of a calorie-controlled diet and upon undertaking an active lifestyle. Highly recommended 5 stars.
