Yogen Fruz Smoothies - Blueberry Breeze

Posted by: Michael In: Fruity Candy

Yogen Fruz Smoothies: Blueberry Breeze

I’m not sure how prevalent they are in the States, but go to pretty much any mall in Canada, and you’ll find a Yogen Fruz. For the uninitiated, they sell frozen yogurt, usually mixed in with some sort of fruit. It’s not bad, if you like that sort of thing.

A pack of Yogen Fruz Smoothies consists of 36 (yes – they’re that precise) crunchy pieces of fruity candy. I’m not sure why, but when I bought this I was sort of assuming that they’d be chewy, like jelly beans. They’re actually more like Sweetarts or Pez – crunchy, with a grainy consistency.

They’re good. The flavour I bought was Blueberry Breeze (there’s also Tropical Storm and Strawberry-Banana – I’ll have to try those at some point). They’re not nearly as sweet as something like Pez, with a strongly sour, fruity taste. They don’t really taste like blueberries per se; it’s more of a general berry flavour. There’s also the yogurt (which is definitely in there – it’s the second ingredient), but I’m not sure if it adds too much to the flavour of the candy. I guess it’s overpowered by the tartness of the berry.

Despite the lack of any sort of yogurt flavour (which is kind of odd for a candy released by a frozen yogurt chain), these are not bad at all, and make for a refreshing midday snack.

I love em. Don’t know what you mean that you can’t taste the yogurt - it’s the most prominent tone after the fruit. I buy these by the case - first candy I have enjoyed in ten years. Too bad I can’t find them but in one store in all of Houston (they don’t have the Yogen Fruz stores here), so I’m going to have to start buying online.
