Yoplait Light has become more than just your ordinary yogurt. For the last few years the company has been putting out tons of new flavors, many of them based on popular desserts. These new yogurt flavors have really become popular, partly because they let people who are watching their waistlines still indulge in some of their favorite goodies.
Since Yoplait has recently released a few new dessert flavors, I decided to try them out and let you know what they really taste like. For the purpose of being fair, I also had others try them out so that you could get more than one opinion.
Here are the reviews of each flavor:
Black Forest Cake – several people tried this flavor and we were all pretty much in agreement that it tasted like cherry more than anything else. In fact, a couple of us didn’t think that it really tasted much different than Yoplait’s regular cherry yogurt. None of us really tasted chocolate at all, which is the flavor we were expecting, so it was a bit of a let-down.
Red Velvet Cake – there were a couple different opinions on this one. A couple people thought that it just tasted like cream with a hint of cherry. Another person swore that it tasted just like the cream filling in a Boston Crème donut. Personally, I didn’t like this flavor, but I don’t like Boston Crème donuts, so maybe that taste tester was accurate after all.
Triple Berry Torte – tastes like a mixture of berries and crème. Also has hints of cheesecake flavor to it. Includes three berry flavors: raspberry, strawberry and blueberry. Everyone who tried it agreed that you could taste the blueberry more than any of the other berries. That may be partly because the yogurt has several whole blueberries mixed in it, but only tiny bits of the other berries.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake – this yogurt definitely tastes strongly of pineapple and has some nice-size chunks of the fruit in it. Personally, it reminds me more of Pina Colada more than pineapple upside-down cake. The surprising thing is that I had one taste tester who hates pineapple, but they really liked this yogurt. That confounded us all.
I hope these reviews will help you decide whether you want to try these new products for yourself. Yoplait Light is fairly cheap, at less than $1 for each individual container. It is also easy to find, since all of the major supermarket chains carry it. Wal-Mart, Meijer, Kroger – if they sell groceries than they likely have it.
Another bonus is that yogurt is really good for you. It provides a good amount of calcium, vitamin D and probiotics which are great for your digestive system. At around 100 calories a serving, they are also a fairly guilt-free snack. It’s a win-win-win situation, plus it’s really easy to stick in your lunchbox when you are in a rush!
