Greece is the theme of the week or so it seems- Total Greek Yogurt has brought to the market a new range- Total 0% Greek Yogurt Split Pots- which they asked me to review.
So last Monday, an helmeted courier drove his large motorbike down our little street and handed me a freezer bag, all singing and dancing with Zebra, Cow & Spoonbill, I mean the bag was not the biker.
In the bag, neatly piled I found the very compact split pots, (spot the qualitative here- it is important for diet food not to look puny, this looks compact) all the range was there Blueberry, Tropical Fruits, Strawberry and last but not least the classic Honey
I set myself down to task straight away with Blueberry split pot. Was it to be all yum no fat as the press release indicated?
It is definitely 0% fat - but up to 29.6g of Carbohydrate- 300g is the maximum intake per day if you exercise a lot 20g the minimum if you are on a loosing weight diet.
Back to Blueberry, I have never been sure about split pots, what do you do? what is the best option? do you
a) pour the delicious compote into the bigger pot?
b) eat a mouthful of each in turn?
c) drop a little of the big pot in the small pot, one go at the time?
I went for the traditional way and the blueberry refuse to move. It is very thick, apart from this, the experience was rather enjoyable, thick Greek yogurt - thought he said to prefer the 2%; on which I would tend to agree. All together the nice blueberry split pot makes a good snack.
Tropical Fruits split pot was my favorite, no problem with the sliding, it gliding down into the large pot, quite indulgent taste and I could mix it easily.
The disappointment came with the Honey, which is not up to scratch - the honey is rather mediocre however when it came to Strawberry, then yes, perfect consistency, not too sugary, plenty to go around the pot, I don't like strawberry yogurt but this was a joy, I was converted. I would recommend it at lunchtime or any time of the day. This one was all yum, no fat.
Thank you to Total to make my job an enjoyable experience.
