Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Koru Yoghurt, a new creamery style yoghurt entering the market. It’s new!
Koru Yoghurt, part of the Land-O-Lakes family and produced in Minneapolis, MN, is made with real ingredients, including Grade A milk and a touch of cream, with just the right amount of delicious fruit. Super light with a nice, silky texture – it’s pretty great. The New Zealand inspired yoghurt (hence the spelling with an “h”), has a suggested retail price of $1.49 and comes in 5.3 oz cups which are clear so you can see the scrumptious fruit and creamery-style yoghurt inside. I checked my favorite grocery store on-line and it looks like my store is already offering it to their customers (YES!).
Available in five fruit-filled flavors:
- Pomegranate + Cherry
- Strawberry + Goji
- Purely Peach
- Passion Fruit
Koru was nice enough to send me a fun, little pack filled with Koru products for me to try. Here’s my review.
Yogurt is a big deal in my house. I usually eat one yogurt per day and my husband and boys also eat it regularly. My youngest also enjoys yogurt regularly so I knew he would be a great one to try out the product and give me his opinion. Let’s face it, if the kids don’t like it then the likelihood of me buying it is slim to none.
My little boy picked out the Strawberry and Goji to taste. He gave it a thumbs up. My husband tried the Peach flavor and thought it was really good. He commented on how smooth and creamy it was and thought it was a satisfying way to kick off his day. I tried the Peach, the Pomegranate and Cherry and the Passionfruit (we didn’t get any Mango to try). Each flavor was just as good as the next.
Here is how the Peach yogurt looked as soon as it was opened and before I mixed it.
I thought it looked very creamy, had a nice scent to it and a good amount of whey at the top which I later mixed in. Once I mixed up the yogurt I was able to combine the fruit from the bottom to the top. The fruit mixed well and I thought there was a nice balance between the fruit and the yogurt and one didn’t overpower the other.
The ingredients in the Peach flavor included: Cultured, pasteurized milk, cream, skim milk, sugar, peaches. Contains less than 2% of honey, cornstarch, natural flavors, pectin, citric acid, annatto (color), Vitamin D3. Contains L Milk, Grade A and Live and Active Cultures. Nutritionally, the Peach yogurt is 190 Calories per serving, 7 grams of fat, 26 grams of sugar and 7 grams of protein – to name a few.
This yogurt is yummy. No bull!
