I made an exciting discovery yesterday at the Saskatoon Co-op grocery store: Astro brand lime flavoured yogurt!!
Why am I so excited about this, you ask? We all know how so much of our relationship with food is linked to comfort and memories. Well, when I was very young, my all-time favourite yogurt flavour was the Dairyland brand of lime yogurt. It was the artificially coloured, gelatin-filled stuff, but that's what yogurt was back then (to me at least) and I loved it.
Perhaps part of its appeal was that was so rare. There would usually be one lime yogurt flavour in the cooler, among all the other multitudes of flavours. We always bought it if it was there.
And then they stopped making it. I have pined for that flavour of yogurt ever since. I was keen to try the new replacement that several brands offered: key lime pie flavour. But that to me was overly sweet and had that disgusting fake meringue flavour which just didn't do it for me.
But now. NOW! Astro's lime flavour is much closer to what I remember. And it has no fake colour or gelatin. I am SOLD.
