Review: Yoplait Light Pineapple Upside Down Cake Yogurt

Purchased at: Kroger’s
Price: $.60 (on sale)

My first thought upon seeing this yogurt was “How the hell do you make yogurt taste like cake?” And then I looked to the right of this container and saw that there was also a red velvet cake flavored yogurt and thought “you’ve GOT to be kidding me.” For only $.60, I couldn’t go without trying one of these two flavors. Pineapple upside down cake won in the end, because it sounded less likely to make me gag. Red velvet flavored yogurt sounds bizarre and WRONG.

The best part about pineapple upside down cake is the buttery brown sugar crust that forms on the bottom of the pan. There is no argument about that being the best part. It is, without a doubt, the only reason people like pineapple upside down cake so much. Obviously, you can’t get a gooey, buttery, brown sugary crust on yogurt. It’s missing. And I’m not getting any flavor even remotely similar to the crust in this yogurt.

I’m also pretty sure that this is just plain vanilla yogurt with small pieces of pineapple in it. The base of pineapple upside down cake is a yellow/vanilla cake, so…it’s passable, I guess. It’s good yogurt – it’s smooth and silky, with nice pieces of pineapple swirled throughout it. That tang that is characteristic of so many yogurts (which I’m not a fan of) is not present in this one at all.

Points for good consistency and no tang.
No points for false promises of a healthy alternative to one of the most delicious cakes known to man.
