Quickie Review: Red Velvet Cake Yogurt - Aldi : Moorestown, NJ

Red Velvet Cake Yogurt - Aldi : Moorestown, NJ
It's no secret that I love shopping at Aldi, and if you've been reading my posts for a while, this yogurt cup should look pretty familiar.

I picked up this flavor, which I had never seen before, during my last grocery run, and it was separate from all of the other yogurts, so I'm not sure if this is a permanent addition, a special buy, or a seasonal item. That's the problem with Aldi. Products always come and go never to be seen again. (I call these elusive items "unicorns.")

Enough babbling, let's get to the yogurt review.

The packaging follows the same design template as the rest of the Fit & Active line, so I am going to skip my usual design discussion. (I already shared my thoughts on packaging in these posts.)

I opened the container and the yogurt was a nice, somewhat natural, raspberry color. I'm really happy that Fit & Active didn't go overboard with food coloring. (Historically, red velvet cake was colored due to a reaction of cocoa powder, baking soda, and vinegar, not dye. Check this link to find out why we use dye now.) The yogurt smelled tart and tangy, like most yogurts, but there was a hint of sweet vanilla. Seeing how red velvet cake is typically a mild chocolate cake with a cream cheese icing, the scent seems a bit off.

I took a taste, and it was yummy, but definitely not red velvet cake.

This tasted like tangy vanilla yogurt with a hint of cream cheese. I liked the taste, and easily finished my cup of yogurt for breakfast, but it was simple not what was advertized.

I really did enjoy the flavor, so I would buy this again (if it's available), but those of you who are looking for actual red velvet cake, get ready to be very disappointed.
