Strawberry Yoghurt - Pomona Thick and Creamy Yogurt (pasteurised)


From the little Costcutter supermarket in the Golden Lane building on the infant Goswell Road.

Delicious! But is it bad that it's pasteurised? Erm, dunno. Presumably M. Pasteur would say: mais non, esp├Ęce d'idiot! and point out that a sell-by date in September is a Good Thing. But I guess that does mean that on the dead-live spectrum it's hanging around the left-hand end, yes? Should I worry? It's such a nice yog ...

Very fruity, non-artificial looking colour (I mean, yes sure, it will have been faked up a bit, but it's not actually fluorescing). Ingredients list not too alarming in terms of fake-inosity, probably not incredibly good as a slimming aid though. I am not sure if it's meant to be that the list is in order of proportion (of added ingredients, it says) but I note that cream comes first. Tsk! Excellent non-slimy texture. Definitely a repeat-purchase item.
