Fage Total 0% with Cherry Pomegranate

Author: Healthnuttxo

Spotting something new at the store for me, Fage Total 0% with Cherry Pomegranate. I had a feeling it was going to be delicious, but I had to buy it, (ya know just to make sure ;] )

So I put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes or so, and then took it out. This yogurt was separated into two parts- one of just yogurt, and another of a liquid-like fruity side.  I took a scoop of the yogurt and was amazed how THICK it was.

looks just like ice cream!

I tried the greek yogurt part first- it was plain, but not too tart, which I liked. It was soooo thick, almost like a paste! The fruit part was de-lic-ious. The perfect balance of cherry and pomegranate flavors, it was sweet and slightly tart. There were also actual shreds of pieces of fruit in there! And of course, when eaten together? A creamy treat, that knd of reminded me of what a cherry pie would taste like in yogurt form. MMM!

Overall, a winner for me. Looks like I’ll add this to my list of yogurts to buy when I go shopping (which, is quite long, but always room for more!!). 4 1/2 stars

What’s your favorite way to eat pomegranates? I’ve only ever had the seeds, which is QUITE messy to eat. I vaguely remember getting pomegranate juice, everywhere. Ooops!! 😉

I love YOGURT! I try to eat at least one every day, whether it’s for breakfast, snack, or even dessert! A yogurt I have seen in the stores by me is Fage, which according to the website, makes “Ridiculously thick yogurt”. They have a few different types of products, including the TOTAL 2% Peach, Strawberry and Cherry yogurt.

The people over at Fage sent me some coupons to try out some of their products, and I was most excited about the TOTAL 2% yogurt with the fruit compartments. I decided to try the Cherry, Peach, and Strawberry flavors that were offered. The TOTAL 2% yogurts have 2 compartments, one with yogurt, and the other, smaller, compartment has an almost jelly-like flavor. It’s sort of like a fruit on the bottom yogurt, but the fruit is actually separated on the side. I thought they looked cool and interesting, so I figured why not give these a try?

The yogurt part on all three flavors was pretty much the same. A plain, tart but not too tart yogurt, that really was quite thick. It was creamy too, and sort of reminded me of sour cream. I also think it had a bit of actual cream taste, which was really delicious. I enjoyed this part plain, but also with the peach, cherry and strawberry sides.

Peach- ahh, so refreshing. This jelly-like side had small and soft bits of peaches, all together in a sweet syrup. Really good! 4 1/2 stars

Strawberry- this one was also delicious. A sweet strawberry flavor, not as sweet as strawberry jam, but still good. Smooth and yummy, it had an authentic strawberry flavor that did not disappoint. 4 1/2 stars

Cherry- oh, my, this one was the BEST! I thought Strawberry was going to be my favorite, but Cherry really made my day! Sweet in the best way possible, it went just PERFECT with the yogurt. I actually found myself licking the compartment where the fruit was clean. SOOO good! 5 stars

Overall,  a really great product. I certainly will buy more in the future. I think it’s perfect as a snack with some fruit, or even for breakfast with some cereal or oatmeal! The creamy yogurt and sweet fruit compartments both equally great. I just wish the fruit section was bigger! 😉
