I've always loved key lime. Key lime anything. Key lime cheesecake, key lime cookies, key lime cupcakes, key lime gum (yes, it exists!). The list goes on and on.
When I heard that Whole Soy & Co. released 2 new flavors of yogurt, I was excited, but when I heard one of those flavors was key lime... I was PUMPED. How good would it be? I had very high expectations.
When Whole Soy & Co. agreed to send me some flavors to try for a review, I couldn't be happier. I would get to try the new key lime flavor! Whole Soy & Co. also sent me three other flavors to try: blueberry, vanilla, and their new unsweetened plain.
First up, blueberry.
This was pretty good. You could taste the blueberry flavor, but it did have a slight soy aftertaste. It was creamy, smooth, and had real blueberry pieces throughout the yogurt! Plus, it had a pretty light purple color. Overall, a pretty good choice for your morning yogurt.
Next up, vanilla.
This flavor was delicious. No soy after taste that I could recognize and a very strong vanilla flavor. I poured half the container over some freshly sliced strawberries and had a delicious afternoon snack. I think this would be very tasty on top of other fresh fruit or used in baking. Again, the yogurt was creamy and smooth.
Third was the new unsweetened plain.
I was a little skeptical of how this would be before I tried it, but I was really surprised by just how much I enjoyed this. It was very tangy, and even though it was unsweetened and "plain," the yogurt did not lack flavor. It tasted similar to a runny sour cream with a subtle soy aftertaste. This would be great in baking (Did you see the recipe I posted for Carrot Raisin Sandwich Bread? I used this in the recipe!)
EDIT// I recently tried Whole Soy & Co's original Plain... and you know what? The Unsweetened Plain is much better! If you are debating between the two, I recommend getting the Unsweetened Plain!
Finally... key lime.
This was by FAR my favorite flavor. It met all of my expectations and even surpassed them. It tasted just like a key lime pie and had no soy aftertaste that I noticed. It was sweet, creamy, limey, and delicious. I don't enjoy when the key lime is subtle, and this yogurt DEFINITELY brought the punch with its strong lime flavor. Great job, Whole Soy & Co. You won me over with your key lime yogurt! I'm a fan!
