The very best berry selection from the Nelson Bays creates a delicious yoghurt that is bursting with authenticity and is full of flavour. Satisfy your appetite for pleasure with this fresh, deliciously creamy and velvety thick yoghurt. Available in a 450g or 200g tub.
I have purchased this yoghurt several times now, mostly in the smaller, single serve size as it makes the perfect sized snack for either morning tea or afternoon tea at work and saves me the hassle of having to pour some of the yoghurt into another container from the bigger size pottle. This yoghurt is thick and creamy and not to sweet, and is very gourmet tasting especially this flavour which has such a yummy sauce to it.
The yoghurt was nice but my taste buds would have preferred it to be a bit sweeter, however when you had a mouthful of berries along with it, it tasted a lot better, however there was unfortunately not the greatest ratio of yoghurt to berries which was a real shame. Although this yoghurt does taste okay as a yoghurt on it's own, and it is the better gourmet type yoghurt I have found to come in a small tub it's not my favourite gourmet yoghurt out there.
Other than using this yoghurt to eat on it's own, I have also used it as part of a berry smoothie, also in a muffin recipe which made the muffins lovely and moist, however the best use I have found for this yoghurt I have found so far is as a ancake topping as you kind of get your berry sauce and yoghurt/cream in one and it worked well in this instance.
As far as yoghurts go this is nice, but with many other gourmet yoghurts out there now that are just as good or better I probably wouldn't grab this one again unless on special.
I picked up a little 200g tub of this Puhoi Valley Divine Berries yoghurt at the supermarket yesterday on the recommendation of the below review. The mere mentioning of the yoghurt tasting like cheesecake was enough to make me almost run to get it. However, on my first attempt I could not find this specific flavour. A little hunt out to New World and I was away.
I took this to work with me today as my morning tea. I wouldn't usually eat a whole pot of yoghurt in one seating like this, but I was pretty hungry doing my monthly report. The pot has travelled a bit in the car, and so when I opened it the yoghurt and berry sauce was well mixed together. I actually like to mix it all in together with these styled yoghurts, so it saved me the job.
The first mouthful was quite sweet, berry sauce with that creamy yoghurt cutting the sweetness back a little. I think if I was just eating the sauce, it would be far too sweet for me. However, the creamy yoghurt was just perfect with this sauce. I liked the colour of the sauce, a really nice red/purple colour Very natural looking, and looked to have some kind of apple puree through it as well to give it a good consistency. I was not disappointed at all with the flavour and can't wait to try other yoghurts in the range.
I keep seeing this gourmet style yogurts at the supermarkets with the plain yogurt topped with a berry or similar sauce and thought I just had to try it. I love yogurt and remember when I was little I used to get these yogurts in the UK that had a corner of sauce that you would fold over to pour the sauce over the top and this reminded me of them. Out of all the gourmet yogurts this one was pretty much the cheapest so I decided to give it a try.
I picked the berries one as I love berry yogurts. The berries were great but the yogurt on the other hand wasn't. It didn't remind me of yogurt at all it was so thick so it didn't at all run off the side of the spoon or anything in fact it reminded me of eating cheesecake filling and I just didn't like the texture at all. I couldn't eat much of the tub as it was so rich and the texture really was un-appealing for my taste buds.
I left the rest of the tub for my partner and although he did eat the whole lot he agreed with me that the texture wasn't really like yoghurt and he wouldn't rush out and buy it again. So as my first try of these style of yoghurts I have been left unimpressed and everyone else seems to rave about them so I might leave this one and give another brand a try.
