Next up on the roster of popular brand name yogurts is La Yogurt “Rich & Creamy” Vanilla. Again, my mom bought this one because my grocery store didn’t have any of these brands in the regular not-non-fat versions, so I don’t have a price. I will check at my own grocery store the next time I am in there!
So La Yogurt, I have a story about. This is the yogurt I ate in middle school, after my mom stopped making everything in our house from scratch. I ate it in key lime flavor almost every day for lunch.
And now I know why I was such a chubby preteen :-P This stuff has a whopping 31 grams of sugar! Apart from that, it has pretty much the same ingredients as Yoplait, although in different quantities. There is less starch in this one, but there is also sugar AND corn syrup. Crap! It has a pretty long list of crap in it.
And, like Yoplait, it has all that creamy goo on the foil. I am beginning to wonder about this rule of yogurts. (Actually, since I drafted this post, Beth has filled me in on the whys and hows of yogurt on the top of the container, so now I know!)
This one has a very similar puddingy texture to Yoplait, but I actually find the flavor more pleasant. It is still much too sweet, but the La Yogurt tastes more like an actual dairy product– you can taste the slight sourness of the yogurt cultures which you can’t taste at all in the Yoplait. It also has a sort of lemony flavor, even in the Vanilla flavor, which I think is kind of pleasant. It didn’t taste quite as artificial as the Yoplait, either. Or if it did, the lemony flavor masked that.
I think if I were on a desert island and they told me I had to eat Yoplait or La Yogurt, I would go with the La Yogurt. It is still more sweet than I like my yogurts and I feel like I am eating a dessert, but at least with this one, I don’t feel like I am not eating a yogurt. It is just a very sweet yogurt. I still prefer some of the other brands I have tried– namely Dannon and True– to this, but if you like desserty yogurt and are normally a Yoplait fan, I would give this one a try!
