Dairy Farmers Cheeky Cow A Little Sweet, a Little Salty Layered Yoghurt

When it comes to being ‘exper­i­ment­al’ with food, I’m the one that fits more into that cat­egory than D who sticks to his tried and true favour­ites. The upside, though, is that I can always count on some­thing yummy if my ‘exper­i­ment’ fails. As was the case with this Dairy Farmers Cheeky Cow A Little Sweet, a Little Salty Layered Yoghurt, a car­a­mel­ised pine­apple and sea salt fla­voured yoghurt. I like pine­apple and I’ve enjoyed pine­apple yoghurt by Chobani before, so it wasn’t entirely new.

The smell of car­a­mel is strong from the moment the lid is taken off. It’s a smell that reminds you of buttered pan­cakes drizzled with golden syr­up, that is to say, rich and without the clar­ity of maple syr­up. While that is accept­able in pan­cake form, the yoghurt also tastes like how it smells — only stronger, and so it bor­ders of sick­en­ingly sweet. The asso­ci­ation with pan­cakes comes from the salted pine­apple recall­ing but­ter and the sweet­ness of the yoghurt recall­ing milk-based pan­cakes. The fla­vour com­bin­a­tion does not work in yoghurt form, at all.

This tub of Dairy Farmers Cheeky Cow A Little Sweet, a Little Salty Layered Yoghurt con­tained 500 g. It was pro­duced in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
