Weight Watchers Dessert Recipe Yoghurts
Advantages: Low calorie yoghurt, unusual flavours
Disadvantages: Flavours do not live up to expectations
I picked up these Weight Watchers Dessert Recipe Yoghurts for £1 from the supermarket which I thought was good value for 4 low calorie yoghurts. They tempted themselves into my shopping trolley as the flavours sounded just so scrummy that I had to give them a go, and with the added benefit of the 'Weight Watchers' logo, I guessed they'd be good for the old waistline which I'm trying to shrink.
The packaging is fairly standard for yoghurt packaging these days and consists of a cardboard sleeve around the four plastic yoghurt pots that are stuck together ready for 'snapping' apart. The yoghurts are 120g sized pots and in my opinion are a decent sized yoghurt for a snack or pudding.
The four yoghurts are four different flavours and as far as I am aware, are only sold in the combination below:
Raspberry Tart, Strawberry Tart, Lemon Cheesecake and Toffee Apple.
Each pot has a weight watchers points value of 1, so for those following a Weight Watchers' points diet, it is possible to safely eat the yoghurt and count it's points' value or point should I say! The individual yoghurts have around 56 calories per pot and 0.1g of fat.
My first yoghurt of choice was the Toffee Apple flavour. Maybe due to the anticipation of toffee apples in a yoghurt; such a scrumptious flavour, the yoghurt just did not meet my expectations. Granted the toffee flavour was nice, but I'm not sure what apple it was based upon, as it bared no resemblance to any apples that I've tasted. Disappointed I think I would say.
The second yoghurt of choice was the Lemon Cheesecake flavour. Again, I was disappointed. The lemony flavour was nice but not amazing and disappointingly articifical. I loved the biscuit flavour of the cheesecake base, but hated the texture as the yoghurt contained small biscuit peices that were soggy due to them being in yoghurt - not nice.
My third yoghurt of choice, has been the Raspberry Tart. Maybe because my expectations were now low, I've quite enjoyed this one this evening. Similar to the Lemon Cheesecake yoghurt, the soggy biscuit pieces were a disappointment but by now expected, but the raspberry flavour was really rather scrumptious.
Just the Strawberry Tart to go now. I shall be good and wait until tomorrow for that taste sensation!
Overall, I'm not blown away by these yoghurts and will probably not be purchasing them again unless I happen to sign up to the Weight Watchers diet or they are on an amazing offer at the Supermarket. Whilst the flavours are unusual and a welcome change from the standard yoghurt flavours, the flavours weren't quite what I'd hoped for and the yoghurt not quite as luxurious as I would have liked. In a way, I think the flavours are almost an own goal, as you prepare yourself for 'Lemon Cheesecake' or 'Toffee Apples' and what you get is yoghurt.... tasting just a bit like that. It just doesn't quite meet expectation. Maybe a higher calorie version yoghurt would be nicer and creamier and have a better flavour but then that wouldn't be Weight Watchers would it!
Thanks for reading my review and I hope you liked it :-)
Good luck with dieting too if you are on that highway!
