Happy Melts Organic Yogurt Snacks

Author: healthnuttxo

happy

okay okay, this one is geared toward babies & toddlers…but i got a free coupon, and we all know my love for yogurt. How could these possibly be bad? I saw 2 flavors at whole foods, Mixed Berry and Banana Mango. Banana Mango was the one i had chosen. These yogurt snacks are freeze-dried yogurt and fruit, are gluten free, have pre and probiotics, and “melt in baby’s (or mine!) mouth”.

Each one is about the size of a nickel, and the consistency of those Necco wafer candies (if they even make those anymore. I think they come out around Valentines day). The taste is very mellow. It’s not bad, but different. I was sort of expecting sweet yogurty flavor, but it was more toned down.  It almost had a cheesy taste to it if you will. I did like sucking on them though, and they did “melt” in my mouth, but slowly. They were creamy and almost foamy-ish once they hit the tounge. The sweetness actually comes out once you fully dissolved the piece in your mouth. They are certainly something I have never tasted or experienced before, but i liked them!! 🙂 I tasted more of the mango flavor with a hint of banana. I think these would be good maybe mixed in a trail mix or some plain cereal like kashi go lean or bran/wheat flakes for some added yum and sweetness. They are definitetly good for babies and toddlers though, they are perfect finger food.

1/4 of a cup is 30 calories, 0 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbs, 0 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein. You also get 12% of your daily calcium and vitamin D needs, as well as some healthy probiotics for digestion. woo!

Vitamin D Fortified Cultured Pasteurized Organic Nonfat Milk, Organic Banana, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Mango, Organic Tapioca, Pectic, Organic Locust Bean Gum, Inulin, Natural Flavor, Live & Active Cultures: Streptococcus thermophilus, Bulgaricus, Lactobacillus, Acidophilus, B. Lactis, Lactobacillus Paracasei, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus. (woo thats a mouthful!! 🙂 )

  • Oh my god, I love baby food/ kid-related food. 🙂 I’m ALWAYS drawn to do product reviews of them. I’ve actually had these and they’re quite good!

    I often times find myself frequenting the baby food aisle. True story: one time I was getting some babyfood (for myself.. obvs) and I saw one of my HS teachers who came and asked If I had a kid.. um, awkward much?

    oh my god. that is so weird because i went down the aisle to get pureed banana (i know, weird, but i REALLY like it. its like applesauce to me!) and MY HS gym teacher walked down the aisle and was giving me this “why is this girll browsing baby food?” look, so i turned around and looked very interested in the toothpaste that was on the other side of the aisle hahah.
    oh goodness…

    The Gerber yogurt baby snacks are so good that I am going to use them as diet food. The peach ones are the ones I tried. They are very satisfying as a low fat sweet treat. Tried the Beecher ones today YUCK, but the babies may like them.
