The Collective Dairy Gourmet Yoghurt

The Collective Dairy gourmet yoghurt is a delicious, thick and creamy yoghurt that is produced in the UK based on an original and best-selling recipe from New Zealand. Angus Allan and Ofer Shenhav first setup The Collective Dairy in New Zealand. When they were looking to grow the brand outside New Zealand, they made a deal with Mike Hodgson and Amelia Harvey(both former directors of Gü) and today the Collective yoghurts are sold in almost 2000 British supermarkets and food stores including Wholefoods, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, the Co-operative and Ocado among others.

We were very kindly sent a few coupons to try out some of the Collective Dairy products. I managed to try 3 flavours from the range. I still have 2 coupons with me and have been making numerous visits to the local Co-operative in the hope that they stock some different flavours but have had no luck on that front so far. With the year coming to an end, I thought I would post the review today and maybe update you all later if I get to try the other flavours. The 3 variants that we tried out were:
- The limited edition Xmas Pud
- Passion fruit and
- Banoffi
The yoghurt comes in clear plastic tubs and looks just like a small tub of ice-cream.

Xmas Pud
Banoffi was my favourite of the 3 flavours we tried. It was thick and creamy with a double layer of delicious sauce. The yoghurt was perfectly balanced - it was not too sweet and neither too sour. Perfect as a treat or snack to eat on the move. The limited edition Xmas Pud was Mr.H's favourite. Topped with a generous festive fruit layer of whole sultanas, delicate spices and orange zest - this yoghurt was more like an indulgent, delicious pudding - it is a gourmet luxury treat as claimed. The sauce was plentiful and dispersed uniformly so that you get the taste in almost every mouthful. The Xmas Pud is a tasty seasonal yoghurt that is perfect for the festive season. The last variant that we tried was the Passion Fruit flavour. While this one was also good and tasted like Passion fruit ice-cream, neither myself nor Mr.H were too keen about it. Overall though we liked the products and would repurchase. There are so many other flavours that I am keen to try out especially cherry + pomegranate, raspberry + amaretto and blood(y) orange. I hope my local Co-operative stocks these flavours soon.

The 500g pots of gourmet yogurt cost around £2.50(in Co-operative) and might seem expensive but trust me these are more than just yoghurt - these are more like an indulgent dessert. The yoghurt is made from the finest West Country milk and all the products are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. The products are also free from any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. You can read more about the Collective Dairy and product stockists here: www.thecollectivedairy.com
