Rachel’s Wickedly Delicious Yogurt

Page 4: Prebiotic Yogurt In “Exotic” Flavors

Exotic Yogurt Line

The “Exotic” yogurts are so-called because most of the flavors incorporate “exotic” tropical fruits. Perhaps these are exotic in the U.K. where Rachel’s hails from, but you need to live somewhere pretty far afoot in the U.S. to think of a kiwi, mango, passionfruit or pomegranate as exotic. Anyone living in a town with a Latino population can find guava, and marionberry is just a breed of Oregon blackberry. The flavors include:

  • Cherry Black Currant Yogurt. A pale-lavender yogurt with prevailing cherry flavor, we don’t taste the currants, but perhaps they help balance the cherries.
Rache's Yogurt - Mango Pineapple Passion Fruit
Pineapple-flavored yogurt is certainly pleasant, if not “exotic.”
  • Kiwi Passion Fruit Lime Yogurt. This is one of the more anemic flavors, although pleasant tasting and a pretty, light-lemon color. Focus very hard and you’ll find the slightest hint of kiwi and lime, but no tart passion fruit. It needs to make a statement of any kind.
  • Mango Pineapple Passion Fruit Yogurt. Mango has top billing in this banana-colored yogurt, and there appear to be flecks of mango throughout. But it is the pineapple that takes the flavor lead, seconded by the pleasant tartness of the passion fruit.
  • Marionberry Guava Yogurt. This pink-colored yogurt with a pleasant, light blackberry flavor (Marionberry is a variety of Oregon blackberry). The guava didn’t shine through. Nice as it is, we’d go for the Berry Jasmine in the Essence Line, for a stronger berry hit—unless, of course, your preference is for a lighter berry taste.
  • Orange Strawberry Mango Yogurt. Mango must be a tough flavor to infuse, because it keeps getting lost in these blends. You will, however, get good orange and strawberry flavors here.
  • Pomegranate Blueberry Yogurt. We like this blend better than the Pomegranate Açaí of the Essence Line. The blueberry adds more punch.


Try Rachel’s Yogurt. “Wickedly Delicious” or just delightfully different, we think you’ll like it.
