Tesco Finest Hazelnut Yoghurt
Advantages: Tastes nice, creamy, crunchy hazelnuts
Disadvantages: Not good enough to warrant the price tag
When I was in Tesco's at the weekend I decided to treat myself to a pot of hazelnut yoghurt. It is a flavour that I have always really liked but don't often buy these days as that particular flavour never forms part of any of the multi packs that I normally buy.
The one I decided to try this time is the Tesco Finest Hazelnut Yoghurt at 68p for a pot containing 150g.
The pot itself is quite unusual in shape as it is oval rather than the more usual round or square ones. The peel off lid is plastic and shows a picture of hazelnuts (you don't say!) together with the use by date, the flavour of the yoghurt and information telling us that this is a 'West Country yoghurt blended with Channel Island cream' and containing 'sweet and crunchy pieces of hazelnut'.
The front of the cardboard pot has the same picture as the one on the lid and tells us the same information with the addition of the now familiar nutritional values expressed as a percentage of your recommended daily allowance.
On the back there is a list of ingredients together with more nutritional information.
This yoghurt is suitable for vegetarians but obviously NOT for those with a nut allergy! LOL! As with all yoghurts it should be kept refrigerated but must not be frozen. I have never tried freezing a pot of yoghurt but I assume that it would separate when it was defrosted.
I peeled off the lid - and licked it of course - and found that the yoghurt looked very appealing. It was a creamy colour and the pieces of hazelnut were clearly visible.
I took my spoon and in I went for the taste test.
Again the creaminess of the whole thing was immediately apparent. The hazelnut pieces were indeed sweet and crunchy as promised and the whole thing blended together in a most pleasing flavour. It was just sweet enough for me without going over the top and becoming sickly. I found it very enjoyable but nothing as special as I had expected for the price and the fact that it was Tesco's Finest so I probably wouldn't buy this version of hazelnut yoghurt again.
The nutritional values per 150g pot are as follows:
Of which sugars 22.7g
Of which saturates 6.7g
In conclusion it was very nice but not special enough to warrant the 68p price tag.
Summary: A nice enough yoghurt
