I guess that I have already given the game away in terms of my thoughts on the Fruyo yogurts?!
I felt pretty honoured to be asked to try them…you know you’ve ‘made it’ when you get asked to do stuff like eat yogurt for free. Especially in January…when payday feels like an age away!
Seriously though, regular readers will know that my yogurt of choice is the 0% Total Greek yogurt, as I find the sweet ones just too sweet for my tastes…plus, I am not keen on additives either really.
So when I was sent a fantastic haul of goodies – I was expecting a pot to try, and ended up with a rather snazzy coolbag and twelve yogurts – I was excited to try them, but a little skeptical…after all, what the heck would I write if I didn’t actually like them?!Given that the makers of Fruyo are also the makers of the Total Greek yogurt, I knew I was in safe hands – but still, I took some of yogurts around to my sisters house and had a taste test with the family to make sure that my lack of sweet tooth didn’t create an unfair bias.
I needn’t have worried. They are bloody amazing – seriously! I tasted the blueberry, peach, cherry and lemon flavours…they get a massive thumbs up from me. My three year old nephew almost wrestled the blueberry one out of my hand, and my five year old niece was pretty impressed too. My sister loved them, my Mum immediately went and bought a tray of the lemon ones, and my fussy brother in law was also seen enjoying a pot of cherry Fruyo! Mr WLB was caught pilfering a pot of my Fruyo and ditching his usual brand…so the taste test was a resounding success!
My main worry was that they were going to be too sweet – they weren’t. I found Fruyo to be thick, creamy and delicious and not at all chemically-tasting like some yogurts on the market…this is because they use proper old-fashioned sugar instead of sweeteners.
I will now give you the important bumpf that I have to mention…
‘Fruyo yogurt combines exceptionally think, creamy fat-free Total Greek yogurt, with refreshing real-fruit pieces. It contains only natural ingredients and is available in Blueberry, Strawberry, Lemon, Peach, Cherry, Vanilla and Pineapple. Like Total, Fruyo boasts a high protein content, containing approximately 13g per 170g pot. Unique in its offering, Fruyo contains no preservatives, colourings or artificial sweeteners and will be a substantial yogurt upgrade for many. Priced at £1.09 per 170g pot, Fruyo is available at Sainsbury’s, Nisa, Wholefoods, Booths, Waitrose and Ocado.’
I am guessing that regular readers will have cottoned on to the fact that the above bumpf was press-release info…I am not so sure that I would have used the term ‘substantial yogurt upgrade’! A Range Rover after a Mini is a substantial car upgrade…I am not quite so sure of the yogurt equivalent? I am also wondering who sits there and considers a ‘substantial yogurt upgrade’ whilst pondering their life issues…maybe someone, somewhere, listed ‘substantial yogurt upgrade’ as their New Year resolution – if so, then Fruyo have solved that little predicament!
On a serious note, in fairness to Fruyo, this is genuinely the nicest yogurt range I have tasted. It is thick, creamy, fruity, tasty – not too sweet, but sweet enough – and for me, it felt like a real treat…maybe it is a substantial yogurt upgrade after all!
As a Slimming World follower, I would be more than happy to use 3 of my precious syns on a yogurt that felt like a decadent dessert..unlike some of the watery slosh that is on offer today. Check the syn values, as they can vary depending on flavour…but nothing too dramatic!
If you fancy experiencing a substantial yogurt upgrade, then Fruyo is most definitely the way to go!
Thank you for reading my lovelies…
