“Noosa” — A Fine Yogurt With Pepper-Spiced Heat, BUT Alas Too ‘Rich’ For Me.

I swung by Hannaford in Alton to pick up some items this afternoon and came across a lady doing a taste demo for this yogurt — or yoghurt, as they call it. She made a point of telling me to try the yogurt with HEAT — i.e., yogurt with chilli peppers. Well I like pepper and as I have talked about before, I eat a yogurt each and every day and have been doing so for nearly 20 years.

I tried the “Blackberry/Serrano” and loved it. She gave me a 55 cent coupon and I bought a container. It is a double size container — i.e., twice as much as your normal yogurt container.

When I came home I read the label. I was SHOCKED. The fat and carbs are WAY ABOVE what I would normally indulge in. A very rich yogurt. But it sure tasted good. Yum. Yum. Would love to eat some everyday with the chilli but I couldn’t handle all that extra fat and carbs given that I, yet again, need to lose some weight!

I am going to try adding some chilli to my normal Greek yogurt. I will tell you if I crack the recipe.
