Yulu made quite a glorious entry onto this blog recently. First, I used that review as a way to ridiculously play up a fictitious war between Australians and Greeks that I had created as a figment of my imagination (perhaps my most "out there" post in blog history). Second, the yogurt cup itself was really freaking good. So, with fond memories of my ridiculous post and also the great flavor, I was very excited to dive into this Yulu Strawberry Aussie Style Yogurt cup that I picked up at Meijer for $1.39. I'll spare you the ridiculously made up story this time and just dive into the details of this and say that it's 5.3 ounces and has 170 calories and nine grams of protein.
Much like the last Yulu product, this one is made with the yogurt on top and the fruit mix on the bottom. For the purposes of my photos, I always stir the fruit mix to the top and what you see above is a rather dull-colored mixing of strawberries. A marmalade or jam of sorts. After insulting the dull coloring of a strawberry mix long ago, I was once given a lesson by a reader saying that the dull coloring is due to the fact that it is natural and does not have any dyes in it to make it a brighter red, so let's just go with that. As for that strawberry mix, it only smelled faintly of strawberries and there very few tiny, tiny shards of strawberry chunks spread throughout the mix. Yogurt was just like the last time in that it was especially creamy and just smelled delightful.
Being that this is just a slight change in the original Yulu product that I reviewed, I'll just briefly touch on the actual yogurt itself by saying that the plain yogurt is one of the most delicious yogurts that I've ever eaten. Incredible. With that said and out of the way, the real question revolves around how the strawberry mix tasted and all I can say is that it was really kind of sad. It had extremely faint flavor of strawberry and what flavor that existed was only a tiny bit sweet. Outside of that, it was really just a whole lot of nothing and that carried over when I mixed the strawberry mix into the delicious yogurt. That mix really got lost in the mix of the yogurt and was a no-show, which was too bad.
Buy It or Fly By It? Despite the fact that the plain yogurt itself was delicious, I have to give this a FLY BY IT rating because it failed on its intent to bring me strawberry flavor. If this were advertised as plain yogurt, I would have been fine with it. Instead, this was advertised as strawberry flavor and there really wasn't any of that in here, so it gets a failure rating too. Too bad because had there even been a small amount of strawberry flavor, this one would have been a winner.
