Trader Joe's Blueberry Blast Yogurt Candy


I think my high expectations ruined these Trader Joe's Blueberry Blast Fruit Flavored Yogurt Candy. I was expecting to open the cool tin and find little dried blueberries smothered in layers of sweet vanilla yogurt. Instead, I encountered hard pellets that look like medicine. And taste a bit medicinal, to boot. The yogurt flavor was pretty realistic, but the infused blueberry tasted overpowering and synthetic. Oh no, I did not like these one bit. But as I said, it may have been the high register anticipation, because I asked a few coworkers to taste-test the little tablets and they were pronounced refreshing and fun by all. So maybe it's just me. But blech, I'd rather eat a Flintstones chewable vitamin. (If you'd like to see these little "candies" used in a science experiment, check out this link at Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories!)

  1. If I could give these a "6" I would. These are my favorite candies at the moment. I can't believe you rated them a "1" :( Boo Hoo

  2. I, too, was a bit dissappointed in these. Like you, I expected some sort of yogurt coating, not a tin full of smarties.

  3. I love these things. I think they are for one great all natural, I love the fact they use cabbage extract for color instead of crap like red number 40 in a bunch of other candies. The taste is great. I love them!!!

  4. I am horribly addicted to these and spread said addiction to several coworkers. Sadly I have moved to a place w/o TJ's... I fear withdrawl. Afterall, I was going through roughly twenty of these a week...
    Rating A+++ (6 - would risk serious cavities to eat)
