Guess what? PC has another new Greek yogurt. Allow me to introduce you to PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt. My kid actually spotted it on a recent trip to our local Loblaws. She’s a big fan of lemons so when she saw the word lemon, she was tempted to try the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt even though she’s not even a big fan of Greek yogurt! I read the ingredients and figured it was well worth a try so let’s just see how this new PC yogurt tastes. Who knows, my kid might just get a kick out of this new PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt!


Product Review: What Ingredients are in the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt?

What’s inside this PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt? Here are the ingredients that make up the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt : skim milk, lemon fruit preparation (sugar, water, lemon pulp, pectin, sodium citrate, natural flavour, natural colour), bacterial culture.

Huh…well, let’s see…skim milk as the first ingredient is a good thing. The lemon fruit preparation is second which would be okay except that its first component is sugar. Having said that, at least it is sugar and not some fructose, glucose or other –ose. Mind you, if it was honey, I’d be swinging from the chandeliers. There’s water and lemon pulp and knowing that Loblaws is doing away with artificial colours is certainly reassuring.

Overall, I’d say the list of ingredients is decent and certainly isn’t half as bad as some of the other yogurts out there. Question is: how will the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt taste?


Product Review: How does the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt taste?

Crack open the tub of PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt and give it a stir. First thing that comes to my mind: holy moly that is pretty yellow. I’m hoping that vivid yellow is coming from the lemon rind because if it’s not, that’s some really odd ‘natural colour’.

Give it a few more stirs and this is what the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt looks like. Based on looks alone, this PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt isn’t as thick as some of the other Greek yogurts.

My daughter and I both dig in to the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt. My kid’s first reaction: YUM. She loves it, she’s eating it, and even asks for a second serving. Ask her why and she tells me it’s sweet but tart and tastes really ‘lemony’. Hm…good review so far.

I take my first taste and I’m okay with the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt but not doing back flips. For me, there’s a slightly artificial lemon taste and it’s too sweet for my taste buds. It kind of reminds me of those lemon popsicles which is probably why my kid likes it! I mean, it’s not atrocious but I wouldn’t put this yogurt on my top ten list.


Verdict:

The PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt was a big hit with my school age kid but I can’t say I’m a big fan of it. Would I buy the PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt again or recommend it to someone else? I might given that one ¾ cup serving does still offer 40% of my daily recommended calcium intake. The sugar though, is a bit high at 16 g for that same serving. So, while you’re absorbing 40% calcium and 14 grams of protein, I guess the question is whether or not you’re okay chugging back 16 grams of sugar too.

If I were the makers of this PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt at Loblaws, I’d consider lowering the sugar content. It would taste just fine with a few grams less of sugar or better yet, consider using honey instead. I’d say this PC Fruit on the Bottom Lemon Greek yogurt is just a few steps shy of being a home run. My kid certainly liked it, but at what cost? I’d rather get some plain yogurt and make my own lemon concoction because at least that way, I’d have better control on how sweet it is.
