I know, weird reason for a post, but we have discovered the most delicious yogurt and I have to share.
Get thyself to Publix and try their line of Latin-American-inspired flavors. The cartons look like this, with fun little yellow and orange bands at the top:
Eli, my cinnamon-lover, is addicted to the Churros flavor. The Coco Rico, Mango, Banana and Passion Fruit flavors are amazing, containing real fruit and creamed coconut. I was hesitant to try the Spicy Pineapple, but it was wonderful, too, combining cinnamon and chunks of pineapple, with a flavor reminiscent of pineapple upside down cake. And the Limonada Fresca, which combines strong flavors of lemon and lime, was better than some Key lime pie fillings I’ve had.
I was hesitant to try the Guava Pastry, having never eaten a real guava pastry in my life and having no clue what to expect. But I swiped a bite before giving my little one the carton tonight, and it might just be the tastiest of them all. Jonah agreed, polishing off the entire thing in minutes!
The only one we didn’t care for was the Prickly Pear. I’ve never eaten that fruit before, but I expected a strong, fruity flavor like the others we’ve tried. It was disappointing, with no real flavor to speak of. It was just bland and sweet.
Anyhow, for around 40 to 50 cents a cup, these are decadent-feeling treats that really aren’t that bad nutritionally. As I said, the sugar content is a bit high, but not any worse than kids’ yogurts on the market. Plus, at least on the labels I read, these contain no HFCS.
My sympathies to those who don’t live near a Publix grocery store! I guess you’ll just have to come visit us!
