“ Brand: Yoplait / Type: Yoghurts „
I only recently came across perle de lait. I love coconut yoghurt and this one certainly didn't dissapoint. I usually choose one lower in fat/calories but this one isn't too bad.
It is very smooth and thick, and unlike other coconut yoghurts out there its not over powering and is a very gentle flavour with a small amount of dessicated coconut in the yoghurt.
It comes in pots of 4 (125g each) which are of good size and cost around £1.97 but have recently been on offer for £1 in sainsburys which is good value. A lot of people see this as a dessert, i see it as a yoghurt, but it is thicker than normal yoghurt, so it's up to you what you call it. You can also buy perle de lait in toffee or lemon flavour, i would like to try the toffee flavour next.
There aren't really any disadvantages to this, unless you dont like coconut. The only down side i would say is if you are treating it like a yoghurt it can be seen as high in fat.

When it comes to yoghurt, mousses and other little pots of yummy desserts I try to be fairly sensible and purchase lower fat varieties. However sometimes I like to push the boat out and get something a bit more decadent especially if I want to treat myself. . When I am in the mood for treating myself one product I have bought a fair few times is Yoplait Perle De Lait Coconut.
I SHOULD COCO
Made in France by Yoplait Perle De Lait is their range of luxury premium yoghurt's. They come in packs of four 125 ml pots and are available in a rang of flavours including toffee, mango and passion fruit, strawberry and lemon. I have not seen all the flavours in the supermarket and have only so far tried the coconut variety. It would be really nice if they did a variety pack soI could try the other flavours. I have heard that the lemon one is also very tasty.
Perle De lait is widely available in most larger supermarkets. It is a product I only tend to purchase when they are on offer or for a treat, as I find the normal price of £1.99 for a four peak to be slightly too expensive for an everyday dessert. I bought my latest batch in Tesco when they were reduced by 50 pence to £1.49.
The pot size at 125 ml is just about the right size, as its not too small that you are thinking is that it and any more such as a Muller Light size and it would be sheer piggishness.|
TOTALLY TROPICAL TASTE
The dessert is a lovely creamy white, thick ,smoothish yoghurt with little specks and shards of coconut. I like the consistency of the yoghurt, as it is thick enough not to easily drip when you scoop it up with your spoon . The scent is also very appealing, as it is identifiable as a natural coconut scent with just a touch of sweetness an a bit of a the tang from the yoghurt.
I love the taste an the feel of the yoghurt as it coats my mouth with is luscious texture. IIt is just so rich and creamy no doubt due to cream being the second top ingredient. Coconut (both coconut milk and shredded coconut) is the next most prevalent trident coming in at 5.2% of the total product. The coconut milk must add to the divine velvety texture whilst the little bits of shredded coconut just gives the dessert a little bit of bite. Its a nicely balanced flavour and taste rather natural. It does not seem too sweet a dessert although sugar is the fourth ingredient at 4.4% plus glucose-fructose syrup which is another form of sugar. So unfortunately these are quite high in sugars with 9.1 grams in each 100 grams of the dessert.
The good news is there is no pesky gelatine used as a thickener so Perle De Lait is suitable for vegetarians. The bad news is that they are not a dieters best friend , as they contain a whopping 9.8 grams of fat with most of it being saturated fat (6.8 grams per 100 grams). There's also 188 calories in each pot so they are far from saintly compared to other yoghurt's but they must be naughty , as they taste so nice!
If you are a bit nutty about coconut flavoured things and not so worried about your weight I would certainly recommend Yoplait Perle De Lait coconut and on the basis of the texture I would like try the other flavours especially if they are on special offer.
This has to be the nicest dessert I have tasted recently, its smooth and the flavour is not over powering and doesnt make you sick like most other potted desserts,I was looking for something i could have after a big meal as i don't really like sickly desserts. I saw this product on a TV advert and really wanted to try it as i like coconut flavoured things.
It comes with four pots ( which are reasonably sized) and has a shiney cardboard packaging (recently) the desserts are a nice price for such a good quality tasted product the desserts are made by yoplait a french company for making dairy products. When i first tried it i didnt know wheather it was a yogurt as it doesnt really taste like one (it is a lot more pleasent than a yogurt) also the best thing about this dessert is the fact that it isnt too sweet in the mouth. There are several differant flavours that i have seen including toffee, lemon and mango i have never tried any of these other flavours but i will be as it is well worth it.
the dessert is really silkey and has a nice taste I have to say that i became a fan of them and when i go on the weekly shop now i always treat my self to some. I would reccomend this to a friend but i do understand that not everyones taste is the same as mine.
I cant really think of any disadvantages for the product as it is so tasty and makes you want more.
I used to buy 16 cartons per week from my local Morrisons supermerket and now for some reason they have stopped stocking Perle de Lait. I am brokenhearted and cannot find anywhere else in my area that sells it.
You will be coming back for more !
As one of us who don't eat much yogurt I was tempted to try this as I am a lover of coconut. They were also selling at £1 for a multipack of four, so I bought some.
They are overwhelmingly good. Not too acidic or sweet, a strong but not overwhelming taste of coconut, I was transported to tropical shores...
The pots are just a good size, I could have eaten more, but at 150 calories a pop, and nearly 10% fat it's just as well.
The yogurt is very smooth and creamy, with a good suspension of very small coconut pieces suspended throughout. I would have preferred slightly chunkier pieces of coconut, but that's a personal preference.
Theses are so good I am not sure I dare buy any more as they are too good to leave in the fridge uneaten.
One added advantage is the kid's are not too keen on coconut- not many are in my experience, I did give them a taste but was met with wrinkled noses! Brilliant- they are mine all mine!!
After seeing the television commercial advertising these new dairy desserts or yoghurts I was keen to try them. Produced by the firm Yoplait, who you might know from their gooey milkshakes and kid-friendly petit fillous desserts, these puddings in a pot come in three varieties: plain, lemon and coconut. I first of all managed to get my hands on the lemon variety despite the fact they are nearly always sold out in my neck of the woods! After falling in love with them I then bought some of these, the coconut flavour.
The product name 'Perle De Lait' is a French term and in fact these desserts are made in France for the Yoplait UK Ltd company. I love the fact that the foreign language makes these sound so exotic!
The chilled desserts come in a four pack with each individual pot being 125 gram in size. They provide quite a mouthful - perhaps more than a small child would be comfortable eating and enough that an adult would feel full afterwards. Product information is printed on the cardboard sleeve. This includes full ingredients. The ingredients include: Coconut preperation (5.2%), coconut milk and shredded coconut, sugar (4.4%), vitamins B1 and B5, skimmed milk and cream. They are marked as being vegetarian. I should point out that the lemon variety are NOT marked as vegetarian although I could not see anything animal derived in the lemon flavour ingredients, so watch out for that if you are a strict veggie!
Nutritional values are per 100 grams and state that there are 145 calories and 9.8 grams of fat in this amount. It's quite a lot of fat for a yoghurt style dessert so beware if you're on a diet! The added vitamins both provide 15% of your RDA.
When I saw the advert for Perle De Lait I was left with my mouth watering at the description of the dessert. It was described as sweet and "silky smooth". In reference to the coconut variety I presumed this meant that the dessert would be a blend of cream, milk and coconut milk. I was wrong. There is shredded coconut in the ingredients, so the consistency of the dessert is not as velevety as I imagined it would be. However, I have had coconut yoghurts before, most recently the limited edition from Onken, which included tough dessicated coconut pieces. This Perle de Lait is not anywhere near as crunchy and grainy as that. It's more as though coconut flesh has been ground down to the finest powder possible and then added to the cream mix. As such, it's a barely detectable texture. It's certainly not so thick that it sticks in your teeth or remans in the mouth after you swallow the milk substance. It is very well blended. This is coming from someone who abhors any 'bits' in her yoghurts. The added shredded coconut doesn't bother me at all and for kids who have the same picky eating habits as I do well I think they'd be fine with these!
The cream blend of the dessert is extremely thick and reminds me of the dense consistency of yoghurt that usually collects around the lids of regular yoghurt pots when you have just opened them. It has a tremendously delicious mouth-watering aroma of tropical islands and coconut drinks. The flavour is strong but natural and with every bite there is a refreshing kick, a little tingle of cleanness and thirst-quenching goodness. Although there are added flavourings in this dessert the coconut essence tastes completely fresh and real. The shredded coconut ingredient does not make this feel heavy and throughout I have the feeling of drinking a cool yoghurt drink. By the end of the pot you feel full but the amazing taste leaves you wanting to squeeze in a bit more!
These are the best dairy desserts I've discovered in a long time. I am not someone who usually eats this kind of dairy product regularly. These, however, could make me change my mind! These are totally moreish and are suitable for a quick and filling snack or like a pudding as part of a multi-course dinner. I prefer these coconut flavoured desserts to the lemon ones as they have more of a sweet and fruity kick to them. It's also quite difficult to find any coconut flavoured desserts on the shelves and I love the coconut flavour, so I'm very pleased these are on the market!

and I reccommend you try these!
A recent television advert which caught my attention prompted me to search out a new variety of yogurt dessert made by Yoplait called Perle De Lait. The problem was mainly one of availability, because several supermarkets local to me did not have the shelf space to stock the product, and so I decided to venture into the large Sainsbury's superstore we have near to my house, as I knew it was most likely to be there.
It was, as I expected, freely available, and so for £1.99 I purchased four of the yoghurt desserts as to date these are not available singly. There was a choice of three variants, natural, lemon and coconut, and it was the latter I was drawn to as coconut is one of my favourite flavours. The television advert explains that the natural flavour is mild, and not sour as many natural yoghurts can be. So for lovers of plain yoghurts these may well be worth trying.
Yoplait is a world wide brand name, and their products are sold in over fifty countries. They have an interesting history as originally they were formed when 100,000 French farmers joined together to gain a more cost effective way to market their products. They also make Weight Watchers yogurts under license.
This variety of yoghurt appealed to me as it was described as a mild and creamy dessert, and certainly the packaging for the coconut variety is stunning, with a pale blue colour and a half coconut depicted on the front.
The dessert is made from 20% fresh cream which is combined with skimmed milk. It is this high proportion of cream which ensures the luxurious texture.
Inside the pot a white and creamy dessert looks inviting, and when I sampled it for the first time I thought it was a deluxe thick and creamy yoghurt. There was a fair sprinkling of coconut in there, and I really enjoyed the flavour and the texture immensely. Each pot is 125g so you do get a good portion, but as the dessert is 122 calories per 100g and 9.9 g fat this isn't a low fat or low calorie option at all.
These yogurts however are produced in France, so I am sure that as the French have "a little of what you fancy" attitude to food, and not a dietary approach, these certainly have been made with this philosophy in mind.
If you like whole milk yogurts such as Muller Amore you will certainly enjoy these as they are rich and creamy. The coconut version is absolutely heaven with fresh pineapple.
I have been buying these for several weeks, and in that time I have noticed they are available in many supermarkets now. My son in particular enjoys these for breakfast before school, and will select them instead of other alternatives I have in the fridge.
The lemon version is also attractively packaged, and looks fresh and inviting, and I have tried these and really enjoyed their fresh citrus flavour.
These are a welcome addition to the now vast selection of yogurts and yoghurt desserts available on supermarket shelves. When I was growing up "Ski" was just about the only variety you could buy! I think these are really worth looking out for as they offer a refreshing alternative in this category of desserts, and certainly I have bought them on frequent occasions now, as I feel they have a creamy quality which I particularly enjoy.
