Katjes Yogurt Candy Review

Fro-yo girl here. Lolli and Pops in the Glendale Galleria has an impressive selection of international candy from Japan, the UK, Germany, etc. During a recent visit I found two German yogurt candies to try.

Katjes Yoghurt Gums is Katje’s best seller, featuring no gelatin or artificial colors. The treats come in a big 7.1 ounce pouch. Each pouch contains six flavors of candy: zitrone (lemon), birne (pear), kirsche (cherry), erdbeere (strawberry), heidelbeere (blueberry), and himbeere (raspberry). A pouch was $4 at Lolli and Pops. The candies come in fruit shapes; each candy shape represents the candy flavor.

Yoghurt Gums are known for their softness. I found the soft texture strange and not very pleasant. The candy isn’t chewy but it’s like a soft jelly candy.The flavors taste natural and tart but the texture is odd – soft and gritty.

Ingredients: Sugar, corn syrup, lowfat yogurt, fruit pulp, sweet whey powder, pectin, citric acid, lactic acid, lactose, fruit and vegetable concentrate, natural flavors, beeswax

3 out of 5 stars

Katjes YoguBerries is a gummy candy that’s meant to taste like berries dipped in yogurt. A 5.3 ounce pouch ($4.50 at Lolli and Pops) contains three flavors: strawberry, blueberry and raspberry. The white part of the candy tastes like yogurt but doesn’t have much flavor on it’s own. It tastes better with the fruit gummy part of the candy. The raspberry has the strongest flavor, tart yet sweet. The candy had a pleasant texture: firm, chewy but not too hard.

Ingredients: Corn syrup, sugar, gelatin, fruit juice concentrate, lowfat yogurt, citric acid, lactic acid, sweet whey powder, strawberry pulp, pectin, lactose, natural flavors, beeswax
