I tried Vega Yogurt so you don’t have to
My review for Vega yogurt is going to be short, but it’s important to share. Ever since I started living dairy-free, I’ve thrown away far too much money on products that aren’t any good. Frozen pizzas I wish I could wipe from my memory. Cream cheeses that taste like they’ve gone bad as soon as you’ve opened them. I had high hopes for Vega yogurt, but unfortunately, those hopes were dashed quickly.
The most disappointing thing about this yogurt was that I am a fan of Vega One protein powder. I hoped the product I enjoyed in my smoothies would translate well. Instead, it tasted like gritty protein powder mixed into a yogurt.
My condensed review of Vega Yogurt
My condensed review of Vega Yogurt is this: If a paint company married a glue company with a vanilla scent, and they made a yogurt, maybe it would taste like this. It was much browner than I expected. The protein powder consistency really threw me off, which is the problem with a lot of dairy-free yogurts and ice creams, especially the ones that tout “health” as one of their attributes. The flavor was cloyingly sweet, but not terrible. (See? I can say one nice thing.) I really love thicker yogurts, too, and this one was much too thin for my taste. The one-word review from my boyfriend was this: confusing.
Closing thoughts about Vega Yogurt
In conclusion, food shouldn’t be terribly confusing. There are so many better dairy-free yogurts out there, like So Delicious, Daiya, and Kite Hill, that there’s no need to mess with this one.
Oh, P.S.: Dairy-Free State is back, baby!
