REVIEW! The Collective Dairy Coffee Yogurt

The Collective Dairy Coffee Yoghurt

Just a quick review this evening of the limited edition coffee flavour yogurt from The Collective Dairy. I got it on offer from Ocado for £1.59 which is a really good price for a 500g pot. The coffee flavour is made from 100% Arabica beans from Colombia. I've reviewed the Raspberry & Amaretto flavour here and Russian Fudge here.

The Collective Dairy Coffee Yoghurt

The yogurt is the usual thick and creamy stuff from The Collective Dairy and the coffee flavour adds a nice kick. It's ever so slightly bitter but strangely moreish. Coffee flavour yogurt is not something that I have come across before and it makes a nice change from the usual fruity or vanilla flavours.

Verdict
Not my favourite flavour from The Collective Dairy but enjoyable nonetheless!

REVIEW! The Collective Dairy Raspberry & Amaretto Yogurt

The Collective Diary Raspberry & Amaretto Yogurt

The Collective Dairy 150g pots are currently on offer at Ocado so I took the opportunity to try some flavours that I've not experienced before. They are usually priced at £1 per pot but you can currently get them for 4 for £3.  I was particually excited about this Raspberry & Amaretto flavour after my brother mentioned it to me a while back.

I like these little pots as they come with a spoon so they are handy for grabbing on the go or for taking for packed lunches. This flavour contains 195 calories per pot.

The Collective Diary Raspberry & Amaretto Yogurt

The Collective Dairy makes thick and creamy yogurt and this one comes with a swirl of Amaretto and raspberries which makes for a very pretty looking yogurt. It smelt deliciously sweet with just a hint of the almond liqueur. It wasn't as thick as the Russian Fudge flavour that I reviewed last year but I tend to find that fruity yogurts do tend to be a bit thinner presumably due to the water content.

The flavour was delicious, and the sweetness of the Amaretto really complimented the slight tartness of the raspberries.

Verdict
Another deliciously indulgent yogurt from The Collective Dairy, definitely one that I will be looking out for again!

REVIEW! Cadbury Mighty Perky Nana

Cadbury Mighty Perky Nana

I got this bar with my Ocado shopping for £1.65. It is an import from New Zealand, hence the price but I couldn't resist buying it, mostly because of the name! Mighty Perky Nana is one of the strangest names for a chocolate bar that I have come across and I have no idea where the name comes from ...perhaps one of my readers can enlighten me?

So anyway this bar is a banana chewy thing covered in milk chocolate, it tasted like Dairy Milk to me, not the rubbish cheaper stuff. The chewy bit however is probably as cheap as you like but I enjoy that in a banana sweet! It has a warning that 2 of the colourings (E102 and E110) may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children; not a problem to me!

Cadbury Mighty Perky Nana

The inside is like a thicker version of a Milky Way and the banana flavour is strong and artificial but again this is how I like it! The banana and chocolate combination was addictive (was it those E numbers?) and I enjoyed the light texture...and it is quite a light bar at 180ish calories for 45g!

Verdict
Not one to feed the kids but for bigger kids who like banana sweets then you can't really go wrong with a Perky Nana!
