Activia Harvest Picks Yogurt Review

10:55 AM

Here in our house, we are big yogurt fans. I don't remember loving yogurt when I was growing up though...not sure why but now I love it! I have also found that my children, from the time they are introduced to solid foods, love it as well. My daughter is a bit more picky than my son as she does NOT like chunks of fruit in her yogurt. So, I usually give her vanilla, key lime pie or another flavor that doesn't have chunks in it. My son doesn't care what is in the yogurt though...he is a food hound and LOVES anything that he gets in way of breakfast foods. :) I am so glad that my children love their yogurt because I know that it is very good for their digestive systems and because my children do not enjoy drinking milk, this is another way for them to get those important vitamins. My love for yogurt has really blossomed during this particular pregnancy as it is a great source of protein and my body is just CRAVING protein right now.
I am not sure if you have ever heard of Activia yogurt from Dannon, but it is a very good brand of yogurt that really tastes yummy and is GREAT for your body! Well, there is a brand new line of Activia that has been introduced to the market and this new line is called Activia Harvest Picks.

Here is a bit more about this tasty line of yumminess from Dannon...

Activia is a delicious line of Dannon yogurts and smoothies that contain the exclusive probiotic culture Bifidus Regularis® (Bifidobacterium lactis DN-173 010). Activia with Bifidus Regularis helps naturally regulate your digestive system. **Consume daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. It is available in a variety of flavors and sizes, as well as in Light, Fiber and our Activia Selects Greek and Parfait style blends. You can also enjoy refreshing Activia Drinks.

Each serving of Activia contains billions of natural Bifidus Regularis cultures, which survive passage through the digestive tract in sufficient amounts for Activia to have its beneficial effects.

My daughter has been on a probiotic vitamin for some time now because she has a difficult time with her digestive system. This is evident in her lack of regular bowel movements and so, this is why I am excited about Activia Harvest Picks.
For this review I was sent a coupon for a free 4-pack of Activia Harvest Picks yogurt. I found it easily in the dairy section of my grocery store and yes, there were several flavors from which I could choose. Because peach is MY favorite flavor, that is the flavor I chose for my review. As it so happened, these were on sale this week, so it was a really great deal if I wanted to purchase more.
I could not wait to try this yogurt! I had never had it before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Well, was I in for a delightful surprise! Upon opening the container I noticed that the yogurt was not tinted orange like I am used to seeing with peach yogurt. It was white and I could see large chunks of peaches.
This yogurt is sooo silky and smooth! I could not believe how great the texture was! It kind of reminded me of Greek yogurt, just milder in flavor and not as rich. I was not sure how my daughter would react to it as it had peach chunks in it, so I let her try it. As I thought, she ate one bite then gave it back to me. Oh least she tried it! I, on the other hand, LOVE it!! My son thought it was pretty tasty too. :)
Activia Harvest Picks is available in several flavors: peach, cherry, mixed berries and strawberry. I would love to try out the other flavors as I am really loving Activia. My first experience with this brand is astounding and yes, I will buy it again! The suggested retail price for a 4-pack is $2.79.

So, in my opinion...Activia Harvest Picks is AMAZING. I love the texture and the, yet not too rich. The price is perfect as well...I actually was pretty surprised that it wasn't more expensive given that it is a well-known brand and a newer line. I will definitely purchase this product again and would recommend it to anyone!!
