I love the flavor of the yogurt – I just can’t handle the smooth texture. So I typically don’t buy yogurt for myself. I actually *WISH* that I loved yogurt. It’s so easy to grab a container and go, bringing it to lunches at work, or snacks on the go. I often buy yogurt for my husband and my kids – and they love it… so I wish I did too.
That being said – I had a chance to review my choice of the new Activia Selects Yogurt. I chose the Parfait. At first I was a bit hesitant to try it because – it’s yogurt. But then I thought because there’s crunchy granola on top, the texture thing shouldn’t be as much of a problem.
I purchased the Peach flavored Activia Selects Parfait at my local grocery store. They come individually, and are priced at around $1.29 each. The flavors for the Activia Selects Parfaits are: Strawberry, Vanilla, Peach, and Mixed Berry.
It’s nice to have the granola so handy right at the top of the container – all you have to do is peel the foil and mix it in.
The Yogurt smelled so nice to begin with, so I had to take a bite before I mixed the granola. I loved it. Actually there are little peach chunks in the peach yogurt and I thought that helped already with the texture thing. I probably could have eaten the whole thing just without the granola – and not had texture issues. I wonder if the regular peach flavored Activia yogurt tastes the same as this? if so I’ll have to give it a try!
The granola was *really* crunchy. I’m not sure I prefer overly crunchy granola, but it was really good either way. It was a nice treat to have for breakfast this morning!
Being that I only sampled one I cannot say much about the overall benefits of using Activia – but here’s what Activia has to say about their benefits:
On top of being incredibly delicious, Activia® Selects contain the unique probiotic culture Bifidus Regularis® (Bifidobacterium lactis DN 173 010) that helps to naturally regulate your digestive system, when consumed daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
- So if you’re a yogurt fan: give the new Activia Selects a try.
