new product

Another packed lunch, gobbled up in the sunshine!  The weather has been amazing here for the past week or so.  Tonight, however, it’s supposed to snow.  We had a few snowstorms in April last year and even one in May!  I don’t really mind the random spring storms because we have such nice spurts of sunny weather in the 60’s and 70’s. 

I found the latest + greatest yogurt invention at Whole Foods the other day.

Has anyone seen this???  I have been waiting for an almond-based yogurt product!  It’s finally here!!  There were 3 different flavors of Amande at Whole Foods.  I’m finding it crazy right now that I cannot pull up any sort of website or online information for this company!!  Has anyone found anything?  I can just find a few reviews.  Very odd!

The yogurt has live cultures, 2g fiber, 6g fat, 160 calories, 14g sugars, and 3g protein.

So, how did it taste?  It had an excellent almond and cherry flavor.  The cherry wasn’t overpowering and the sweetness was perfect.  Once stirring completely, I enjoyed the texture.  It’s definitely different than typical yogurt.  It was very light and smooth.  It’s wasn’t runny at all, like I expected.  At first bite, before stirring, I would say it was a little gummy or slippery in texture…if that makes sense.  While it’s ingredient list is short, it does include things like rice starch, locust bean gum, and a few others I can’t remember.  However, after stirring and taking a few bites, I loved it.

I’ve never had soy yogurt and am not sure what the nutritional profile is, but in comparison to coconut yogurt, I like it more.  You could mix in a million different things, like flax + chia seeds, to bump up the protein as well.  I’m anxious to hear if any of you have tried this and what your thoughts are.  This definitely won’t be an everyday purchase for me, but once in awhile, sure!  Actually, I think I want to try making this at home!
