Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Yog Fruit Digestives Confirmed sighting: McVitie's Yog Fruit Digestives
Posted: 14:44 Tue 11-Sep-2007. Price: 79p-1.09/ 250g. Location: Morrisons, Hamilton, Scotland; Tesco Express, Newcastle upon Tyne. Sub-flavours: Forest Fruit, or Strawberry. Nutritional unusualness: 73 kcal per biccie.
"zeddy" got in first with these, reporting: "These appeared on a promotional display out of nowhere as I was looking for chocolate products. So far I have tried the stawberry ones and I found them rather nice. (Does anyone find digestives uninteresting until you actually start eating one and then find you want more?) You can taste the strawberry pieces in them, though as usual there is the ubiquitous apple puree/ juice added too. Well worth their money I thought."

And "MMM, not a bad biscuit at all," "Gumbo lover" agreed, though felt it's "Worth noting that it is only a 'yogurt flavoured' topping. The fruit pieces in the biscuit are something a bit different, tangy but do tend to clag a little on your teeth. The dunkability factor is medium - the yog topping doesn't instantly melt and generally it remains stable for a satisfactory amount of time. About long enough to shove it in your mouth really. Overall a good effort from McVitie's."

...I thought they tasted a bit hydrogenated myself - the ingredients don't mention anything in that department, though the pack lacks the "No hydrogenated vegetable oil" tick seen on some new McVitie's..? Anyway, in other dunking developments: NiceCupOfEtcEtc have written up the Bahlsen Dip Its! you may have seen them sampling on TV's Richard And Judy; and I've been kicking myself for not buying either these Burton's "New" Jaffa Mallows or McVitie's Go Ahead Savoury Slices when I saw them in an Edinburgh Somerfield, as they don't seem half as popular down South.

Comment: Don't dip these in your tea, the yogurt topping melts into your cuppa and though the biscuits are nice dipped, afterwards your cup of tea will taste like the milk was off.

Comment: we recently had friends John and poppy to stay and Yog fruit buscuits, not only aptly named but totally moorish, kept us going all weekend! I suspect they will be back for more buscuits before the year is out. YogFruit are, dare I say better than chocolate covered digestives.

Comment: We went to stay with friends in Wycombe recently and they introduced us to the delights of YogFruit biscuits (they had a pack in every room and one on the stairs) Only problem was we spent the whole train jouney back to London trying to remember the name of them. Most frustrating.

Comment: yog fruit, what a naff name to start with. my friend brought these home a year ago, and we kept making fun of it. but the taste - even worse. they're sooooo dry. awful awful. even go-ahead strawberry yoghurt breaks are nicer, probably with less calories.

Comment: I am addicted! I have a box of these at home and life has not been the same since. I am from Wigan and we are not used to posh nosh but these Yog Fruits take the biscuit! My son is on them - he prefers them to rusks and the cat has two for its tea. They work out cheaper than that Felix stuff in't tin. I have put on a few pound but I don't care as it will soon be winter. Ot' shops for two steak and kidneys, a barm and three more packs of Yog Fruits for tup weekend
