Stapleton Farm - Yoghurts

joses monday

There is nothing we like more than receiving delicious food to review at The Amazing Blog. Bizarrely, I was just saying to the girls, how much I love the creamy yoghurts that you get here in the UK and as if by magic Stapleton Farm sent us  a very generous array of the most UNBELIEVABLY delicious yoghurts.  They are a small company based in the wilds of the Devonshire countryside and save on the carbon foot print by only using milk from a local herd of Jersey cows (who by the way produce the creamiest of creamy milk ever….)

We must also quickly mention that Stapleton Farm also produces Ice Cream  as well as yoghurts. But what really impressed us is the traditional way that they make their yoghurts, not over-processed and in small batches of 30-litre pails. This way they have no need to use any additives or stabilisers (which are found in other bigger dairy companies products).  All their ingredients are natural and in the case of the Low fat 25% Fruit Range that were sent to us, there is quite simply just the yoghurt, fresh fruit and a little unrefined sugar – that’s it! What we particularly liked is that in each 150ml pot it contains only 0.5% fat and has over 25% more real fruit than any other brand of yoghurt. They have a selection of five flavours: Raspberry, Nectarine & Passion Fruit, Apple & Blackcurrant, Strawberry & Clotted Cream and Gooseberry (ahem, we should add that the latter two are approx 3% fat – but so worth it!) They even have some recipes suggestions that are perfect for that quick little ‘cheat’ for when you have unexpected guests.

I know what you’re going to ask: “So what was your favourite flavour…?” Well to be honest they all were. But for me the Gooseberry one really stood out – I’m from Spain and we don’t have Gooseberries, they are a very British fruit. Absolutely delicious! Apart from having fallen in love with your country I’ve now fallen in love with your Gooseberries! You can find these little pots of yumminess at 75p each in Waitrose they are also available in ASDA, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tescos but only in the South West… Come on supermarkets, wake up and take them Nationwide!
