Review: Noosa Aussie-style Tart Cherry Yoghurt

So, Noosa is three-for-three in positive product reviews here on the blog.  I'm not a brain surgeon, nor a rocket scientist, but even I know that a 100% success rate is pretty good.  With that success and sense of delighted anticipation, I was anxious to dive into the other container of yoghurt that picked up on sale for $2.00 at Kroger as I take a look at this 8.0 ounce container of Noosa Aussie-style Tart Cherry Yoghurt.  Each container is 280 calories and has fourteen grams of protein.

Upon linking the product page above, I found myself delightfully amused by the way that Noosa describes this container of yoghurt, so I just have to steal it from their site and post it verbatim here because it is so much fun:  "Imagine a perfect slice of tart cherry pie a la mode, served with a side of cheeky Aussie. Better yet, don’t just imagine it: go buy a carton of Noosa Tart Cherry Yoghurt and experience this corker twist on tradition yourself. Lightly sweetened ripe tart cherries blended with our outrageously creamy, velvety yoghurt—so dangerously delicious it’s…wow. Just wow."  Alright then.  In their words, it is "Just wow."  Anyway, they did nail the creamy part of their description right as this was their typically creamy yogurt.  Beneath that was a tart cherry mix that reminded me a lot of the filling of a can of pre-made cherry pie mix, minus the big cherry chunks (this was more of a cherry "jam").  There's nothing wrong with that, but that the visualization that I got when I saw it.

In terms of flavor, I think the way Noosa named this product pretty much described it.  The funny thing is that I don't think the tartness in this came from the cherries at all as I felt it came from the yoghurt itself.  When I tasted the yogurt on its own, it was tart and mildly sweet just like it classically is.  When I mixed in the cherry filling, it was no more tart than usual, but it was slightly more sweet.  So, in fact, it turns out that the tart cherry filling would be more appropriately be referred to as sweet cherry filling.  But since the tartness comes from they yoghurt, I guess the name of this does do a good job.  Anyway, I'm arguing over stupid stuff again...when it all comes down to it, this was a very fine tasting product as it had the alternating taste of sweet and tart that provided a very enjoyable eating experience.  It was like a creamy cherry pie with a whipped cream-esque topping (minus the crust part) and being that cherry pie is BY FAR my favorite pie, I very much enjoyed that.

Buy It or Fly By It?  I think I just gave away the answer with my last sentence in the previous paragraph.  This clearly gets a BUY IT rating.  While not the best of all the Noosa products that I've had, it still was very good and allows Noosa to keep it's success rate at 100%.  And, as we all know, a 100% success rate leads to everyone having a g'day (like how I mixed in the Aussie lingo?).
