Review: Noosa Yogurt

Noosa is a brand of yogurt (they call it "yoghurt") made in Colorado from a Australian recipe (that hails from Noosa, Australia, hence the name). It comes in several varieties including the Strawberry Rhubarb and Blueberry flavors that I tried.

It's a bit pricier than most supermarket yogurt brands and comes in at $2.49 for a 8-ounce container (which I picked up two of during a "buy one, get one free" sale).

The yogurt is not low-fat or non-fat like most of the yogurt you'll find in the dairy section. The main ingredient listed is "Grade A Pasteurized Milk," which basically means whole milk (there's also a bit of cream and skim milk in there).

I'm not sure if it's the whole milk, the recipe, or both but there's an awesomely creamy rich fullness to Noosa yogurt that I've never encountered in any other yogurt I've tried.

It's lightly sweetened and has that yogurt tang to it but has a thick smooth texture that is like a softer Greek yogurt.

The yogurt is perfectly enjoyable on its own but there's also fruit on the bottom for a bit of variety. The strawberry rhubarb was just lightly sweetened and had a tart strawberry flavor.

The blueberry flavor felt a bit jam but not as sweet and was also very good. I like strawberries better than blueberries though.

Overall, Noosa Yogurt is the creamiest yogurt I've ever had and very tasty to boot. It is a bit pricey but is worth the occasional delicious splurge.

  1. It's pretty popular here in CO, but I found it to taste tangy like it was spoiled. I had the blueberry flavor. I normally love Greek yogurt and have been intrigued by the other flavors, so maybe I will give it another shot.
