Today's review is a big moment in the Stonyfield Organic Petite Creme review history. It's one of the last flavors that I've actually seen in my store and it's also the one that I've been looking most forward to because of what the flavor actually is consists of (black cherry). So, it was with a high sense of anticipation and eagerness that I grabbed this single serving container of Stonyfield Organic Petite Creme Mon Cherry Amour Low Fat Sweet Fresh Cheese out of the dairy case at my local Meier for $1.25. This 5.3 ounce container comes in at 130 calories and packs in ten grams of protein into its cheese.
As I opened this, I was immediately greeted with some big chunks of cherries mixed in with the pinkish colored cheese and since I've been a cherry freak since I was a young boy (I had a cherry birthday cake with cherry frosting one year because I love cherries so much; for future reference, I would not recommend it), that was very exciting to me. The yogurt smelled nicely of cherries and was creamy, just like the rest of these.
As I took my first spoonful, all I could really taste was cherry and that was a good thing. It didn't really have the cheese-like flavor that the others had and while that wasn't a bad flavor, I certainly enjoyed just tasting mildly sweet cherries. Honestly, it tasted pretty much like a creamy yogurt to me and being that these are most like yogurts, that's a good thing. The cherry chunks just brought additional pops of cherry and in my mind, that's never a bad thing. They also changed up the texture a bit so that this didn't just sit as a cup of cherry-flavored cheese. This was all cherry, all the time.
Buy It or Fly By It? I've already professed my love of cherries, so it should come as no surprise that I give this a BUY IT rating. This was by far my favorite of all the Petite Cremes that I've had so far and was definitely something that I thoroughly enjoyed eating. It had the least cheese flavor of all of them and had the most powerful flavor of the named ingredient, which I think is ultimately what a manufacturer would want to go with when making these. Just typing out this review has brought more delight to me as I'm thinking about that tasting experience again, so I think tasting this yourself will bring you delight as well, although probably not as much as it has brought me!
