I've taken a look at a couple of Silk soy yogurt products here on the blog in the past and while I found the taste of soy yogurt to be somewhat odd, I was basically okay with those yogurts and gave them a positive rating. A coupon and a new flavor led me to pick up another Silk product on a recent trip to Kroger and for $1.00 (before coupon), I was able to grab this cup of Silk Tropical Pineapple Soy Yogurt. It's 5.3 ounces and has 140 calories and six grams of protein (plant-powered according to the website...seriously). Being that it's soy yogurt, it's also dairy free (DUH).
As you can see and as I'd expect from something that is bean-based, this one has a tan coloring to it. Within that tan colored yogurt are several small pineapple chunks (they are tropical), so at least the named ingredient is there in the form of a physical presence instead of just chemicals. The yogurt itself was fairly creamy (can you say that about a dairy free product?) and smelled both of soybeans and pineapples. I'm just going to come out and say it...that smell was plain weird. Let's say that it was not a turn on for me.
With my first spoonful, I was met with the immediate taste of soybean and while it was okay in the previous reviews, something about it just set me off this time. I then went after the pineapples and while they did have the taste of pineapple and that was fine, that pineapple taste just did not mix with the soy yogurt. I took two spoonfuls of this and just could not go anymore and had to throw the rest out. It actually made me feel kind of sick. Soy yogurt and pineapples are just not a good mix, in my opinion.
Buy It or Fly By It? Easiest decision ever as I threw this one out. Clearly it gets a FLY BY IT rating. I don't think there was anything wrong with the cup of yogurt itself, it was just not a good flavor combination and unless you are truly feeling adventurous, I would recommend staying away from this because you may end up with same sick feeling that I had (and am having again as I type this).
