Tesco Finest Hazelnut Yoghurt
Advantages: Creamy, thick, Flavoursome
Disadvantages: The Horendous Claorie Content
I am a firm champion of the great Tesco value products and I refuse to buy into the hype of their "finest" range (lets ignore the fact that I do not fit the criteria necessary to be included into this target market). But I think I may have just found my guilty pleasure and it's only priced at 65pence per tub or if I'm feeling really naughty 5 tubs for £3.00! Now I am generally a no fuss, no frills girl but clearly I have an underlying desire for for the finer things in life and much as it pains me to admit this Tesco have come up trumps with this gem of a yoghurt.
I hate going into too much detail in my reviews about packaging but I feel that at the very least it deserves a mention. It's not like any other bog standard yoghurt in a cheap plastic tub, no this dreamy yoghurt is tucked snuggly into a recyclable sturdy cardboard tub with foil lid (surely the mark of a superior yoghurt?) so already I am taking an interest.
It is clear from the minute you peel back the lid that it is a high quality product and the first taste reassures you that this is something quite special. Made with Channel Island whipping cream and fresh hazelnuts with a creamy, velvety consistency that just melts in the mouth. It's thick but not gloopy or stodgy and it has a rich taste thats dominated by a full hazelnut flavour (fresh flavour not artificial or synthetic tasting) complimented by an acceptable amount of chunky hazelnut pieces. It's branded a yoghurt but it is more of an indulgent dessert not unlike a fool or syllabub.
Sugar, Water, Channel Island Whipping Cream (7%), Whipping Cream (6%), Glucose Syrup, Hazelnut (1%), Rice Starch, Butter, Caramelised Sugar Syrup and Natural Flavouring

This is a wonderfully indulgent yoghurt for occassional enjoyment not an everyday yoghurt unless of course you are not phased by the calorific values! It's irresistably yummy but it should come with a government health warning stating "If The Calories Don't Kill You The Guilt Will !"
Summary: Tuck it away at the back of the fridge so the kids can't find it - They would never appreciate it!!!
