The Yogurt Diaries #4

This time, I tried a sheep’s milk yogurt: Old Chatham Sheepherding Company’s Sheep’s Milk Yogurt, to be precise. It was $2.79 regular price.

I got it in maple flavor–for those of you who don’t know, which is, well, all of you, maple is my favorite yogurt flavor. If Mediterranée came in maple, that would be my favorite flavor. As it is, I was really stoked to open this one.

There was nothing at all on the cover of this yogurt, and this kind of concerned me because, well, the yogurt came up pretty high in the cup.

This yogurt, like True, had a sort of jelly, flanlike quality to it– it could be cut with a spoon into chunks. But this one sort of “melted” and became softer and soupy when it was left out for a few minutes– the True didn’t. The texture overall was a bit heavier and creamier than the True.

I would have liked the texture, but…well, the flavor was awful. It was almost entirely sourness, and barely any flavor. You can’t even really taste the milk, the yogurt is so sour. And if this was supposed to be maple flavor, well, you could have fooled me. The only flavor I could really detect under the sourness was a hint of vanilla…I could maybe, maybe taste maple if I really stretched, on the back of my tongue, but…I don’t know if that is me imagining things because I wanted to taste maple.

I really wanted to like this one from the package! Sheep! So cute and woolly. But alas, it was not to be. I don’t think I would buy this one again if it were the same price as my regular yogurt, but when it costs almost $3, this is a total failgurt.

You can visit the Old Chatham website, but I am not really sure why you would want to. I was surprised to visit it and see that it won awards! Maybe the judges were convinced that they would seem unsophisticated if they said it tasted icky?
