What is Yoplait Go-Gurt Slushie?
It’s Yoplait’s kid-targeted yogurt, Go-Gurt, in its signature squeeze tubes, but this time in a slushie variation with yogurt that’s charged up with some carbon dioxide to make it fizzy.
How is it?
I’m not sure what exactly happened here.
There are fun graphics on the front of a delicious red-flavored ice beverage like we just hit up the nearest 7-Eleven. The yogurt flavors have descriptors to drive home this new yogurt experience. This isn’t just cherry Go-Gurt, this is FIZZY cherry Go-Gurt! Heck, there is even carbon dioxide listed in the ingredients!
However, I’m baffled as I don’t get a lick of fizz in these. Core Go-Gurt-wise these are tasty, don’t get me wrong. They have a touch of fun corresponding color and good berry and cherry flavor. They are a little sweet but probably perfect for a kid’s taste buds. However, there is nothing remotely fizzy, even if I close my eyes and try to imagine it. Nothing!
Anything else you need to know?
I was so saddened and perplexed by the lack of fizz that I went out and bought regular ol’ Go-Gurt to compare, thinking that I was missing something. Upon further examination, these slushie ones do have a lighter consistency, almost as if they were aerated slightly. They just don’t feel as heavy as the regular, so I guess they do have that going for them.
If you were hoping for the popping sensation of Pop Rocks or even the tingling mouth feel of a freshly opened soda, prepare to be let down.
This is a neat concept with fun graphics to boot, but I’m not sure what happened on the execution. The yogurt seems to be aerated a bit, but it’s minuscule if that. An A for effort, but these need to go back to the drawing board as they are just solid kid’s yogurt in grab-and-go tubes.
