Buying a bunch of Yoplait products over a couple of grocery store trips for multiple reviews seemed like a good idea at the time. Of course, any time you go to a grocery store while hungry, anything involving MORE food sounds like a good idea. Now, I have to admit that I've gotten bored with these, but I don't want to waste things and that leads me to review this single serving container of Yoplait Light Apple Fritter Yogurt that I picked up on sale at Meijer for $0.50. Each container is 90 calories and has five grams of protein. It's also only a two point hit on the Weight Watchers PointsPlus scale, much like the rest of these that I've looked at in reviews.
When I opened this up, I just expected plain ol' flavored yogurt. There was apple flavored yogurt in this, but much to my surprise, there were also some small and soft apple chunks spread throughout this container (I didn't do a good job showing them with my photo). That was a genuine and pleasant surprise to me, so that was good. Outside of that, the yogurt itself did smell like apples and it was slightly runny being that this is a light yogurt and doesn't have as much fat to hold it together. One thing I'll point out (and complain about) is that while this did have apples in it, the comparison to an apple fritter stop there. Where was the pastry part?! AARGH, that naming discrepancy frustrates me every time.
After my first spoonful, it was obvious that this was missing the flavor of the pastry part of the fritter as well. That said, it wasn't necessarily a bad thing. The chunks of apple added some nice additional texture to the thin yogurt and their flavor was both sweet and tangy, which was quite nice. What was also quite nice was the yogurt providing a cooling and moderately creamy consistency to that, almost as if it was a dollop of whipped cream on top of the apple interior portion of the namesake fritter.
Buy It or Fly By It? Basic, but good apple flavoring and that gets this a BUY IT rating. Again, I'll complain about the inclusion of the fritter portion in the name, but in the end, it doesn't really matter. This was an effective snack with decent flavor and it comes at the right price, so that makes it a winner to me.
