Dannon has come out with a seasonal treat… Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt. Interesting choice, right? Not EXACTLY the first thing I would think of when craving pumpkin-flavored fall treats. But the intrigue got to me and I bought one.
The result? It wasn’t awful. When I peeled back the lid, the consistency reminded me of cream cheese. It had the hint of a pumpkin pie scent, but the smell wasn’t overpowering. Honestly the first bite was the most pumpkin pie flavory (I’m sure that’s a real word) of the whole carton. I love a good slice of pumpkin pie, it’s smooth, creamy and doesn’t overwhelm you with the flavor of spices. True to it’s name, this yogurt reminded me of pumpkin pie in that way: it did not taste like pumpkin spice. The yogurt was tangy, like most Greek yogurt, and almost had the essence of a pumpkin pie. That being said, I don’t see myself eating more than my trial container. If I were to get it again, I would add cinnamon in, like I usually do to my vanilla Greek yogurt. That would help bring out more of the flavor and lessen the tang.
Any other recommendations for the fall tasting season?
