As a few of you will already know, I am a BzzAgent and as such, get to try a variety of new products in return for honest reviews and opinions. I was recently lucky enough to be invited to take part in one of the latest BzzCampaigns for Activia Pouring Yoghurt.
Activia Pouring yoghurt is availlable in 3 delicious flavours, Natural, Vanilla and Strawberry. My plan was to play safe and opt for the strawberry but this proved alot harder than anticipated! It would seem that it's the most popular of the three as no matter where I tried to buy it, this was the only flavour that was unavailable anywhere ....i've also chatted with a few other BzzAgents who struggled to find this one! Eventually I settled for the Vanilla flavour.
Admittedly, pouring yoghurt doesn't really appeal to me - maybe i'm just a little too set in my ways, but I believe a yoghurt should be eaten with a spoon! Despite this, I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt and i'm pretty glad I did!
You're probably thinking that this isn't a new product from Activia, and you're kind of right although the last time this was tried through BzzCampaigns, many complained that it was a little on the runny side ....maybe even too much so. Thankfully, Activia have acted on this feedback and have introduced this 'thicker' pouring yoghurt.
Now then, think what you will but in our household, we decided to try pouring yoghurt over Rice Krispies instead of the usual milk - which incidently I can't stand!
Yummy!! They were absolutely delicious .....they tasted very similar to crunch corner yoghurts so this made breakfast like a sweet treat for my kids and rather than the usual "Eeugh, do we have to have that?" I was greeted with "Can we have some Activia on krispies pleeeease?" which is a major plus in my book!!
We also tried it with a few other cereals but this was our favourite, closely followed by Weetabix with a few slices of banana added.
I will definitely be purchasing this again and would recommend it for a little bit of something different. There's no limit as to it's uses either, just check out some of the suggested recipes here.
I'm now continuing my quest to find Strawberry Activia pouring yoghurt so wish me luck and feel free to come back and share your own experiences.
