My baby boy and girl like yakult and yogurt. We often buy yakult as pasalubong. Sometimes getting Nestle Yogurt as alternate to break the monotony and prevent their taste buds from rejecting yakult in the long run.
Yogurt is sour but delectable. Added sweetness and fruit flavor makes it irresistible. My baby girl is making a sour face on every scoop but keeps coming back for more until the cup is empty. She often never want to share it to her big brother.
I thought all yogurt in shelf are created sweet and added with fruit flavor. The last pair of yogurt I bought ended down to my own tummy. They never wanted it. It is plain sour with bite of strong astringency that lingers.
I consumed the first pack but added sugar to the second to mask the astringent flavor. I’ll be more careful next time. On the bright side, this is the kind of yogurt for diabetic and health conscious people.
I thought Philippine Carabao Center was in our itinerary. Too bad, it was not. Hmm…! It was not as bad as I thought. We dropped via their front yogurt store.
The main attraction was of course, lots and lots of yogurt. The cafeteria also serves brewed coffee. What’s the point in ordering it? We were here for the carabao’s milk. The coffee is no way will be a product of carabao. The thing we should get were either yogurt, fresh milk, or ice cream. A coffee with carabao’s milk may do however. Sir Jay was fast enough to buy a yogurt bottle enough for four of us. We never bought other things and became contented with the delicious dairy product. Hmm… delicious!
I asked if I could see some carabaos. It was only natural for me to asked that thing. We were in the vicinity of Philippine Carabao Center. Sir replied, the rearing area was too far from our position. Instead, we toured at the dairy equipment displays. No pictures gathered however, the viewing glass was too blurred for taking images.
We planned on taking home some yogurt. It didn’t worked out well. The day was too hot on our way home. It will surely get spoiled on the way.
Excited to eat the dragon fruit yogurt? Or should I say a dragon fruit flavored yogurt. The latter is more correct cause there is no way the lactic acid bacteria would ferment the dragon fruit juice and puree.
It is a dragon fruit flavored yogurt given to me by a Food Technology thesis student. A session for color acceptability test. I am puzzled, there is a yogurt and a mini teaspoon in front of me. I need to eat it and rate color acceptability after. Why not conduct a full-blown sensory evaluation test? Stop! It is out of my concerns.
The dragon fruit variety used for this yogurt was red. A strong dark red which readily stains teeth, tongue, hands and clothing if the handler is not careful. It is like a McCormick liquid dye which can make a basin of water red with few drops. I am thinking why the yogurt color was pink. Maybe she added too little dragon fruit to plain yogurt. I never perceived any dragon fruit taste either, just a plain sour yogurt.
My color acceptability verdict – moderately acceptable.
