Review of New Alpro Go On Blackcurrant Yogurt

When I heard that Alpro were brining out a new range of yogurts I have to admit to being a tad excited. They are one of my favourite dairy free yogurts. I have them most days during the week with my lunch. So of course I had to buy a pot to try.

The new Aplro Go On yogurt come in three flavours blackcurrant, mango and passion fruit. I opted for the blackcurrant. The portion size is 150g so it is in between their small multipack and their larger pots. I liked the style of the packaging. It is a simple round pot with the Go On logo on the side and on the lid there is a small simple illustration of cascading blackcurrants.

The yogurts are clearly labelled as being dairy free and gluten free as well as being suitable for vegans. The only allergen listed is soya. There is a may contain warning for almonds and hazelnuts.

On opening the yogurt I was pleasantly surprised. I was greeted by a thick creamy yogurt. I was a little disappointed by the lack of aroma I was expecting to smell blackcurrants. Instead I got a neutral aroma one would expect from a plain yogurt. The yogurt clearly consists of two layers the thick cream layer to the top and a compote style layer underneath of blackcurrants. The top layer has a nice neutral or what may be described as plain flavour. Underneath you get a strong rich hit of slightly tart blackcurrants. The two layers mixed perfectly well together to produce a rich creamy yogurt with a nice subtle hint of blackcurrants. It sounds strange but it reminded me of eating the top two layers of a cheesecake. A pleasant surprise. If you remember their cremoso yogurts it was a bit like this but much nicer.

In summary it’s nice to have a nice thicker and creamier yogurt that is dairy free. So if you are dairy free like me, gluten free or follow a vegan diet I recommend you give these yogurts a try. I am looking forward to trying their other flavours. So thank you Alpro for producing a new yogurt that I can enjoy.

      Hi, thanks for taking the time to read my blog post. It’s a shame they don’t have these yogurts in Australia. You can’t wrong with a nice coconut yogurt though, Chloe.

      Hi, some are much nicer than others. If you ever decide to give one a try. I would love to know what you think, Chloe.

        i don’t think i’ve seen one here where i live. there aren’t that many choices for vegans here, especially when it comes to foreign/western foods at the supermarkets.

        • March 17, 2016 / 6:31 am

          Oh what a shame. There lots more vegan choices now being readily available in the UK, Chloe.

            that’s because as a nation you guys put importance on food allergies and restrictions. they don’t do it here. the closest thing is making food HALAL, as the majority of the population is muslim.
