Alpro go on yogurt review

Hey everyone,

I enjoyed my day off yesterday, seeing family and generally getting stuff done. Today I am working but I am seeing a consultant in the hospital beforehand, hopefully it’s nothing but it’s making me anxious. I’m sure I’ll be feeling better later. I am also looking forward to finally having a whole weekend off.

Today’s review is on Alpro’s go on yogurts.

I get excited when I see new products so I had to buy the new mango, blackcurrant and passionfruit offerings from Alpro. These are supposed to be an alternative to strained yogurt so I was expecting them to be thicker than their regular products.

They were thicker than I imagined them to be, with the yogurt sat above a fruit compote. I also noticed that the yogurt itself tastes slightly different to the regular yogurt but I couldn’t put my finger on what the difference was. I found the thickness to almost be on par with coconut yogurt but definitely not as rich, it’s much lighter and easier to eat in my opinion. I also liked that there was a good amount of fruit in each pot.

The mango flavour was a little sweet and tangy with a good amount of mango flavour, I’m not really a big fan of mango so this one was just okay for me.

The blackcurrant tastes like a creamy Ribena with really strong blackcurrant taste, it was absolutely delicious and had a lovely purple colour. This pot was my favourite.

Finally, the passionfruit flavour had the seeds in the fruit, something which I personally do not like but it didn’t put me off too much. The yogurt was creamy, tropical and had a great tang.
