As I continue to plow through my recent string of Yoplait reviews, today's review is the first time that there's something slightly different (other than the obvious thing that it is a different product). This is the first time that I haven't paid a measly $0.20 for one of these cups, so it's a little depressing. Actually, I'm not that much of a tight wad...it's not depressing at all. I still got this one on sale, albeit at a different price ($0.50) and at a different store (Meijer), so it's still a very economical buy. Anyway, this cup of Yoplait Light Orange Creme Yogurt clocks in at the usual 6.0 ounces and it has 90 calories with five grams of protein. Like the others, it's also a two point hit on the Weight Watchers PointsPlus scale.
Opening this up, I was greeted by a familiar sight with the Yoplait Light yogurts in that this yogurt was very loose and runny. Outside of that, it was a faint orange color, which I guess you could say is the amalgamation of the orange outer shell of the pictured dessert and the white creme filling of the same dessert. It smelled faintly of both, so while the presentation wasn't particularly exciting, it did deliver on what you'd expect it to.
Like a lot of these Yoplait Light yogurts, the flavor is about as unexciting as the presentation. Don't get me wrong...the flavor wasn't bad, but it just wasn't something that had any pop. It had mild orange flavor and mild creme flavor and much like the coloring, it was pretty much the amalgamation of the two mixed together. In this case, that is perfectly fine because when you take a bite of the picture dessert treat, that's what you are doing anyway. As for that orange flavor, it did have slight tang and sweetness and the creme had a bit of creaminess to it as well. Basically, it delivered in an adequate and presentable way.
Buy It or Fly By It? There's nothing wonderful or controversial about this and it delivered pretty much as I would have expected it or hoped it too and that earns it a BUY IT rating. If you are looking for a low calorie treat or light meal, you certainly wouldn't go wrong with this, especially if you like the namesake dessert on a stick.
