Strawberry Yoghurt Mentos

After the recent Bananas n Cream Mentos, I figured the next on my list of dairy-inspired Mentos should be some of the yoghurt ones.

There are a few yoghurt flavored Mentos out there, including Lemon Yoghurt, but Santos was kind of to bring me a huge tube of 6 rolls of Strawberry Yoghurt Mentos last week.

Mentos Strawberry Yoghurt

The package is easily distinguished from the regular Strawberry (photo here) but could be mistaken for Pink Grapefruit Mentos (photo here) except for the blue dairy product wrapped around a strawberry at one end.

The dragees look like any other Mentos - a nice medium pink. They simply smell sweet.

The taste is, well, like Strawberry Yogurt. There’s the berry flavor, which is that mix of sweet and sour, slightly floral and then there’s the yogurt kick, which is a bit of a dark tangy bite. It reminds me a bit of the Berries & Cream Starburst.

They’re not particularly creamy (and have no dairy in the ingredients) but do feature 3% strawberry juice.

The new kinds of Mentos no longer use gelatin in them, so they’re safe for vegetarians ... in this case though this version uses the coloring Carmine, so it all depends on where you draw your lines.

    Are these available in the U.S.? Any particular place to look for them? They sound tasty.

    I’m still pining for the Yogolos of my childhood…some of the Japanese yogurt-based candies are pretty tasty, but nothing I’ve tried has compared to Yogolos.

  2. My Uncle used to live in france in the 70’s, he used to bring back when he visited Yogolos, grenadine and camambert. We loved the yogolos and used to give them to the dog and laugh as it took her ages to chew them, but she loved them too : )
