Yogurt, yogurt, yogurt, yogurt….mmm, often an easy snack but it’s not always easy to decide which one to buy. There are so many choices now that you just can’t help but do a little tasting from different brands.

For today’s product review, our family opted to try the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt. It was on sale and with my kid’s current interest in lemon, this was a surefire way to get her input on it too. The Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt seems to have potential. It’s organic, it’s got probiotics, it should be good. Right?
Product Review: What ingredients are in Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt?

Here are the ingredients that went into making the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt: organic milk, organic cane sugar, water, organic lemon pulp, organic skim milk powder, organic tapioca starch, natural flavour, organic lemon juice concentrate, turmeric, active bacterial culture (listed but too long to type, see image).

My thoughts? Well, organic milk as the first ingredient is always good but should organic cane sugar be the second ingredient? Tough call here, I mean, at least it’s not a fructose or glucose kind of thing. Overall, it’s not bad.


So…how does Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt taste?

Open up the container of Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt and we give it a stir. Good news, the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt isn’t radioactive yellow so that’s a very good sign. My daughter and I both try out the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt.

Does the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt taste good?

Yep. My kid likes it and that says a lot because she doesn’t like all yogurts. Do I like Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt? Yeah, it’s not bad. It tastes as lemon yogurt should but what I like is that the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt doesn’t taste like a fake lemon popsicle. It tastes like real lemons in your yogurt and that seems hard to achieve. The probiotics are an added benefit. The yogurt is smooth and creamy. For me, it’s a tad sweet but tolerable. My kid was happy so that made me happy but I think I’d be happier if the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt was just a bit tarter. On the other hand, at least it’s not made with aspartame.


Verdict:

The Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt is a pretty decent yogurt and compared to some of the other brands, the ingredients are significantly better for you. I appreciate that companies like Olympic exist because it means we as consumers have more options. We can make choices and not feel like we HAVE to buy something because that’s all you can get. Sure, the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt may be a bit sweet for my taste but it’s organic cane sugar so I would buy this over anything else that has a fake sugar.  There’s no gelatin and no gluten, 2 more bonuses if you choose to try the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt.

The other cool thing about the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt is that it contains 1 billion live probiotic cultures per serving. Sure, 1 billion may/not be able to give your gut the full boost it needs but it’ll certainly help it a bit and it’s more than what most yogurts can claim to give you. It’s not a bad thing to add to your daily food repertoire. You just might want to cut out some sugar elsewhere in your daily routine so you can enjoy the Olympic organic probiotic lemon yogurt a bit more!
