Yollies Yoghurts | Review

Tuesday, 9 September 2014

Baby led weaning is messy. Despite how fun I find it and how much I enjoy watching Indiana getting in a mess, when we go out I usually stick to 'cleaner', less messy food. This usually means that some of her favourite treats such as yoghurts get left behind! So when I was contacted to review a brand new type of yoghurt how could I say no!



Yollies are a brand new type of yoghurt by the creators of Cheesestrings. They are yoghurt lollies, which sounds pretty odd, but after seeing them for myself, they totally make sense! They are a little different so let me tell you how our reviewing adventure began...

We were sent a fab adventure pack to get us into the spirit. It did include some bits a bit too grown up for Indiana so I roped in my nephew Freddie to give me some help! It arrived perfectly in time for our trip to the zoo and Freddie had great fun looking through his binoculars to find the animals, and trying to find them with his magnifying glass too. I did also spot his dad and Jack having a go as well, so it was great fun for all of us!


After our zoo adventure it was time to try and find the Yollies Yoghurts! They are only exclusively available in Asda supermarkets at the moment at a brilliant introductory price of £1 per pack of 4 (RRP £2). We hunted down the strawberry and apricot flavours as those are our favourites but there is also rasberry too!

What Jack thought was great were the different designs on the individual yoguhrts and the collectable sticks. They are fun and engaging for children and add an element of fun to a healthy treat. The yoghurt themselves are specially made using extra-thick yoghurt and fruit juices so that they look like lollies! Even better they contain no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives, so I felt happy giving them to Indiana too.


They're fab to enjoy at home or on the go as they are less messy, easy to open and you don't need a spoon! The yoghurts can be eaten as they are or frozen, and their casing ensures they keep their shape all day long. Freddie was slightly confused at first, as he didn't understand it truly was a yoghurt haha. But once he tasted it he ate the whole lot (Indiana stuffed hers in without hesitation) and both looked like they really enjoyed it. Jack said they were tasty too, although he did say the texture does take some getting used to.


Overall I think they're fab, especially for us as we can take the out with us, so Indiana can enjoy a yoghurt whereever she is! They are slightly pricey at £2 for a pack of 4, but I think if you want to have yoghurts with ease and with less mess it's worth it. You can even join The Brave Bones Club here to create your own adventure!

*I was sent the adventure pack and a voucher for the packs of Yollies for the purpose of this review - however all opinions are honest and my own*

  1. Wow these looks like such a good idea, a really good way for a BLW baby to have yoghurt with less mess. They do seem very expensive though don't they? I'm now wondering if there is someway they could be made at home... but I like the fact they don't have to be frozen, so you can take them out and about. xx

  10. What a fab idea. I'm definitely going to give these a try. Potato loves yogurt and I love the idea of one that goes in a lunch box easily. I bet they would be fab frozen for a snack on a hot day too.
