You might not have heard of Noosa Yogurt until fairly recently, and that’s because the company actually got its start in Noosa, Australia. Noosa recently moved some of their operations over to Colorado, which is why we are now able to enjoy it here in America. You can now found Noosa yogurt lining the shelves of your local grocery store, as well as national chains like Whole Foods. They say: “We took a page from the Greeks with their famously rich yogurt. Ours is made in small batches, set and infused with honey to give it that delicious sweet-tart tang, and smooth, velvety texture that sets us apart from the throng”. Noosa has six different flavors to choose from: Honey, Blueberry, Mango, Raspberry, Strawberry Rhubarb and Peach. To learn more about Noosa and where you can find them in your area, be sure and head to their web-site for more information.
Perhaps the most normal yogurt flavor they make is Honey, which is why we thought it would be a great place to start this review. Our first bite was filled with the natural flavor of the yogurt, honey, and just a touch of sweetness from the cane sugar that they threw into the mix; however, the sugar content is surprisingly low. The texture of the yogurt is somewhat thick with a bit of velvety smoothness to it that they said we should expect, so there really weren’t any surprises aside from how awesome it was. This Greek yogurt is different from others that we’ve tried, in the sense that it isn’t incredibly thick that you have a hard time eating it. Next, we took a spoonful of their Blueberry yogurt, and as the picture below indicates, this yogurt is chock full of blueberries. The third ingredient is real blueberries, not some fake corn sugar coated blue dots that many large companies like to pass off as blueberries. This yogurt is so much better than the traditional stuff you buy at the store, mainly because it’s made with a short and simple list of real ingredients that you can actually pronounce. Continuing with the success of the other two, we headed for their Mango yogurt. Their mango yogurt is tasty and interesting, but we wouldn’t say it was our favorite in their line of awesome tasting yogurt. It definitely tastes like yogurt infused with real mangos, but it just wasn’t something that our tasters would choose over the other flavors in their line. Noosa’s Raspberry yogurt was the next in our line of flavors, and what we liked about this was pretty much in line with all of the other nice things we’ve said about Noosa’s variety so far. It has a semi-sweet quality to it that isn’t overwhelming or underdone, rather, it’s a nice balance of sweetness, yogurt and real fruit puree that Noosa has managed to get into one tub of yogurt. We can honestly say that we’ve never had Strawberry Rhubarb yogurt prior to this review, but after tasting this we can say that we’re certainly glad we did. If you’ve ever had strawberry rhubarb pie before, expect that same flavor in this yogurt—which we thing is quite a compliment. It has more of a strawberry influence than rhubarb, but that isn’t to say that you can’t taste any rhubarb at all. Lastly, we came across their Peach yogurt, and our judges thought this was a nice take on a somewhat classic combination. It tastes like an upgraded version of the peach yogurt you’ve been eating for years now, with the only difference being that this is made with real peaches, making it much healthier in the process. Overall (5 out of 5).
The pros are that they have 6 decadent flavors to choose from, the texture of the yogurt is velvety smooth, it’s high in protein, you can find them nation-wide at your local grocery store, they’re made with real ingredients, and it’s the best yogurt we’ve had to date.
The cons are that it’s high in natural sugar, which you can escape from when you’re dealing with yogurt.
