Yoplait Perle De Lait Coconut
Advantages: lovely texture, natural tasting
Disadvantages: fairl high in fat,, sugar an calories pricy if not on special offer
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.
