Tags: Wallaby Yogurt

Wallaby Yogurt makes some pretty delicious products, such as organic yogurt in nonfat, low fat and “down under” (fruit on the bottom like) varieties, and now they even make sour cream! I love when yogurt is organic, as I think it tastes very fresh and clean, without any aftertaste.

So, browsing the aisles at the supermarket I stopped in my tracks… this can’t be… CARAMEL APPLE YOGURT??!? I hope we all know my obsession with apples… šŸ˜€ I immediately put it into my shopping cart!

I know the last time I tried a Wallaby Yogurt it was good, but not as thick as I like yogurt to be. It has an almost runny/liquidy consistency, not as thick as other yogurts and certainly not thick like greek yogurt. So, I stuck this in the freezer for about 30 minutes to let it thicken up. I opened it up and took out a scoop.

yuuuuuuuum.

It was a creamy vanilla yogurt part that was on top, that was smooth and sweet. On the bottom were apple chunks in an almost caramel/applesauce flavored syrup. Really delicious! At one point I actually did feel like I was eating a caramel apple!

Overall, this gets 4 1/2 stars. WAY too good to pass up! Tasty, organic, and sweet but not too sweet, it was very delicious. I jus wish, of course, the yogurt part on top was a bit thicker, but still enjoyable nonetheless. Also, it wasn’t as filling as I wanted it to be, but pair it with some cereal or something and it’s a great afternoon snack!

Look at this deliciousness!!

Wallaby Organic Maple Yogurt

Author: Healthnuttxo

Ahhh, yogurt. One of my favorite foods that I would seriously DIE without. I’ve had so many different types of yogurts- plain, flavored, fruit on the bottom, greek, “diet” (YUCK), and now Wallaby Yogurt bringsĀ me an organic version that is a Creamy Austrailian Style Yogurt.

Australian? Whhhhhat? Well, the company was founded in 1992, when the founders Jerry and Faith went to Australia on vacation. While they were there, they discovered yogurt, and decided to make their own factory back in the United States and name it after the place they came up with the idea- Wallaby Yogurt.

Wallaby Yogurt makes nonfat, lowfat and fruit on the bottom flavors, called “Down Under”. There is a cute Wallaby named Joey who I would assume is the mascot of the company (he really is adorable!) I have tried the Down Under Strawberries & Cream flavor once before, and it was AWESOME, so I was excited to try a flavor I spotted at my local Whole Foods- low fat Maple.

I loooove Maple. Maple sMapleyrup. Maple cookies. Mighty Maple Peanut ButterĀ (made byĀ PB&CO). SoĀ  YOGURT must be good, no?

So I bought two of these (I like to have things a couple times before writing anything about them), and dug into one when I got home. The texture is a little runnier than the yogurt I’m used to. For example, Stonyfield Farm has yogurt that has a bit more body to it. But,Ā perhaps this is just the way Australian yogurt is supposed to be? The flavor, however, was very good. More than just a subtle Maple flavor, it was sweet but not overpowering. It had a smooth feel to it, and just a hint of vanilla flavor. It was delicious, in fact. I was also happy to discover that the sweetener was evaporatedĀ cane juice and maple syrup instead of refined white sugar, or artificial ASPARTAME or SUCRALOSE (yucky).

The second time I tried it, I popped it in the freezer for a half hour or so. What a difference it made! The yogurt thickened up a little, and it was like my own little frozen treat. Absolutely delicious with sliced bananas and waffles (with just a drizzle of maple syrup, of course šŸ˜€ )

Overall, I give it 4 stars. The taste is really delicious, sweet without being too sweet. I wish it was a bit thicker in consistency (for those of you who are die hard greek yogurt fans, you will be surprised by this variety!), but overall a very good yogurt. I will buy this one again, and I’m excited to try the other flavors, especially more of the Down Under varieties.
