A Nasty Taste Left In My Mouth

I have never been a yogurt eater but when I tried Silk brand dairy-free vanilla, peach, and pineapple alternative years ago, I absolutely loved the dessert.

I don’t remember If I tried the blueberry, and I don’t think I tried the strawberry flavor of Silk.

The reason I did not continue to purchase the item from time to time is because of the high sugar content.

I also don’t like that Silk is owned by Danone now and no longer by Whitewave (or however it went when Danone took over) as it was back in the early nineties.

I usually buy products with no added sugars.

The soymilk I love is by West Soy. It is organic, unsweetened, and only contains soybeans and filtered water. The taste is wonderful.

Yesterday, I decided to try a yogurt by Kite Hill. It was an unsweetened vanilla Greek style yogurt with zero added sugar:

Almond Milk (Water, Almonds), Natural Flavors, Tapioca Starch, Pectin, Locust Bean Gum, Agar, Vanilla Beans, Live Active Cultures: S. Thermophilus, L. Bulgaricus, L. Acidophilus, Bifidobacteria.

I also liked the advertisement on the product:

Made from Live & Active Cultures, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Kosher, Non-GMO, No Artificial Preservatives, No Artificial Flavors

11 Grams of Almond Protein per Serving.

From looking at the bottom of the container the yogurt seemed watery. I wasn’t too sure on whether or not to buy it but I did anyway to test it out.

When I opened up the product, I noticed the product had a thick consistency, and that the yogurt was not watery at all. I had to mix it up a bit, though.

It tasted okay. I thought that it was bearable and that it had potential at the present moment. It had a lemony, tangy, tart flavor that stood out and that left an unpleasant after taste.

I purchased another one for later to see if it would taste good as a smoothie in my soymilk.

I did not, however.

I will not be purchasing this item ever again. It is just plain nasty when it comes to flavor.
