The Yogurt Diaries #6

Today, I tried out another major brand name yogurt: Yoplait. I bought th original French Vanilla flavor. Since my mom bought it for me, I am not sure how much it cost, so I’m afraid no cost comparison.

The Yoplait does have a very creamy layer stuck to the top of the foil. On the other hand, I read the ingredient list? Warning: Yoplait? Is not even vegetarian. It has gelatin in it, so while I am sure most vegetarians are already aware of this, if you’re not a vegetarian and cooking for a veggie friend, don’t use this brand!

It also has a much longer ingredient list than any other yogurt I’ve tasted so far. It has corn starch, corn syrup, and lots of other crap. It also has added vitamins, but I don’t really see the point. That’s like adding vitamins to Coca-Cola, as far as I’m concerned.

ANYWAY, let’s get down to tasting. This yogurt is very, very smooth and actually seems to have a consistency more like those little Jell-o cups of pre-made pudding than it does like any other yogurts I’ve tasted. It is also incredibly sweet– much sweeter than Dannon. The flavor is a bit like pudding as well, which I imagine is because of all the cornstarch, since that’s essentially what pudding is made out of. It doesn’t really taste very much like a dairy product at all!

I don’t think Yoplait tastes bad, and if you like pudding more than you like yogurt, you might want to try this, but I don’t think this is at all what most people have in mind when they want a yogurt! It is just very sweet and dessert-y. I would not recommend this to anyone who is shopping around for a new yogurt because it doesn’t taste like yogurt at all, but it might be good as a crepe topping or something like that.
