If you were to take a walk through the yogurt sections of some of my local grocery stores, you would think that the Australians have a problem with the Greeks since it seems like there are all sorts of Australian yogurts taking shelf space away from Greek yogurts. Perhaps there's some bitterness over the way the Greeks ruined the 2004 Olympics after the Australians did such a good job in 2000 or maybe it's something else. I know that's a ridiculous premise, but I had to come up with some sort of introduction for this post and that's the best that my feeble imagination could come up with. Anyway, I picked up another Australian yogurt product in this Yulu Blueberry Aussie Style Yogurt at my local Meijer for $1.39. It's 5.3 ounces and has 180 calories with nine grams of protein. Or, as the label on the container says, "Double Smoothed. Double Delicious. Honest ingredients and a good source of protein." Alrighty then.
So I opened this up and the first thing that I noticed is that this was similar to the many fruit on the bottom products out there, so I stirred it up to bring some of the blueberry preserves-like mixture to the top. What you can see is a creamy yogurt (it became creamier the more I stirred) that has a nice smelling blueberry mixture with decent-sized blueberry chunks included. That preserves-like mixture was kind of grainy as well instead of just a slippery mixture like jelly can be. That was different, but appreciated. Outside of that, there's not much else to describe here.
My first objective was to taste the yogurt itself and I can happily report that it was creamy and tangy. Quite frankly, it was delicious. Similar to the other Aussie style yogurts (or yoghurts in those instances) that I've had on this blog, I would eat just the plain yogurt alone. It's that delicious. I then went for the blueberry mixture and it was sweet with a very mild kick of tang at the end, just like you'd expect something with blueberry flavor to taste. The sweetness wasn't overly potent either, so it also was something that I'd happily spoon to my mouth by itself. When I mixed the two together, they tamed each other out (yogurt became less tangy and blueberry mixture became less sweet) and while the maintained their core flavor characteristics of sweetness and tangy, they did so in an incredibly mild and pleasing way.
Buy It or Fly By It? Everything about this was delicious in my mind, so this clearly gets a BUY IT rating from me. These Aussie style products (made in Colorado; ha, ha) have been quite a positive addition to this blog and now I'm even more excited to try out some of the other flavors that my local Meijer has to offer. I'm just loving this "war" between the Greek and Australian yogurts because it definitely benefits me!
