I had written a review recently on the WeighWatchers Forest Fruits Fromage Frais, which I had heard about at my WeightWatchers meeting. I really liked them as they were cheap, tasty and fat free. So this week when I was shopping I went to the yoghurt aisle to pick them up again.
I saw these, the Summer Fruits version beside them, so I decided to buy these instead. Obviously they have a lot of similarities to the Forest Fruits Fromage Frais, so apologies if this review is very similar to my review of those!
The Fromage Frais comes in a pack of 4 little 100g tubs, covered in a cardboard sleeve that features the product information and a colourful photo of the fromage frais itself. Each pot is 1 ProPoint - these are fat free so they are healthy and can be enjoyed as part of a low fat diet even if you aren't on WeightWatchers. I like WeightWatchers' products very much as it's so easy to count up your daily points when all the information is right there on the packaging. I am allowed 26 ProPoints every day, so this fromage frais can easily fit into my daily diet.
There are 4 flavours in the pack - strawberry, raspberry, apricot and peach. At the bottom of every tub is some fruit compote, which has whole bits of fruit in it. The fruit compote is very tangy - I don't like yoghurt with 'bits' in it normally, but the fruit bits in this are lovely. I have to say that surprisingly, I wasn't keen on the strawberry version - it seemed a bit jam-like and artificial to me, but the peach, apricot and raspberry was delicious.
The fromage frais is thick, creamy, and slightly sweet; although despite containing artificial sweeteners, does not taste artificially sweet. Because the fromage frais is rich and creamy, I find these pretty filling - the 100g tub is more than enough to satisfy.
These taste lovely straight from the fridge, however I don't have a separate freezer in my kitchen; I just have a small freezer compartment at the top of my regular fridge. Sometimes things on the top shelf of my fridge freeze slightly as they are too close to the freezer compartment. When I grabbed the peach fromage frais to eat, I found that it had frozen almost solid. I of course have had frozen yoghurt before, but never frozen it myself. And it tasted absolutely lovely! Fresh and icy and delicious.
I ended up freezing the apricot and raspberry tubs on purpose. While it's not exactly the best weather to be eating frozen yoghurt right now, this will be lovely for during the summer as an ice-cream substitute, or if you are really wanting a frozen dessert.
I prefer these over the Forest Fruits version and will be buying them again, without a doubt.
These are around £1.50 per pack of 4.
