Hello, and welcome back. I did not get to blog as much last week as I had expected due to lots of factors. But, today I am back with another Taste Test Tuesday. This is not a paid post, it is just a topic I enjoy covering on this blog.
If you read here a lot, then you know that I shared some emergency meal kits for any kind of preparedness, but especially hurricane prep here in Florida. Well, of course, we have a late-season hurricane barreling toward Florida. We have lived here since 2005 and I don’t remember ever having a hurricane in November. I don’t think we will need to evacuate, it is supposed to be a huge rainmaker and wind, but a category 1. Since we live inland we should be OK. But, we could lose power, and trees can come down, stuff like that.
Now for the taste test. I do not care for Greek Yogurt, or any yogurt really. I find it to be bitter or sour. But, I really wanted some ice cream one day when I was in Publix and these Yasso Frozen Yogurt Bars were buy one get one free. They have substantially less fat and sugar than ice cream. So, I decided to buy them and if I didn’t like them maybe my husband or daughter would. I tried the ones with the chocolate coating first and they were really good. I was very pleasantly surprised. I was even more skeptical about the mint chocolate chip because I was thinking it would be bitter without the chocolate coating. In all actuality, I enjoyed the mint chocolate chip much more than the one with the chocolate coating.
Would I buy these again? Absolutely! However, they would have to be on sale. 4 bars at Walmart costs $4.98, so you know they would be even more at Publix. That is way too much to spend on such a small amount, in my opinion. But, I also don’t crave ice cream often, so these would be OK once in a while even at that price range.
Have you ever tried either of these? If yes, let me know if you liked them, or not.
If you are on dialysis these will obviously count towards your fluid limit for the day, so be sure to count that. Dairy products tend to be higher in phosphorus than other frozen treats like sherbert.
