Bonjour French Yogurt Review

Fro-yo girl here. I’ve been going around to different farmers markets and many of them have yogurt vendors. These vendors make their own yogurt. So far my favorite farmers market yogurt is from Aris. However, I was intrigued by Bonjour’s French style yogurt at Alhambra Farmers Market.

Bonjour yogurt is “delicately handmade by Chef Kady” and most varieties only contain yogurt, fruit and probiotics. No preservatives, thickeners or refined sugars are used. Each package is 10 oz. One tub is $5 or you can get 3 for $12 or 4 for $16. Credit cards are accepted.

The yogurt comes in a wide variety of flavors, including coffee, quince, cherry, white cherry, boysenberry, honey, dates, fig, ginger, rose, pineapple, caramel, cranberry, etc.

According to an article I found about Bonjour, the yogurt used to be made with sheep’s milk. They now seem to use cow’s milk. I was told that it was strained for three days. The texture and consistency are similar to Greek yogurt.

* Carrot yogurt: quite sweet (naturally), super thick and creamy with small carrot slivers, the carrots were still firm and tasted fresh, very nice

* Rose yogurt: the rose/floral taste is present but not overwhelming, the yogurt itself is thick, rich and creamy, plus naturally sweet

* Ginger yogurt: Very intense fresh ginger taste, might be overwhelming unless you really like ginger

Bonjour Yogurt isn’t quite as rich as Aris and it doesn’t have that cream aftertaste but it is still thick and rich. It’s surprising how sweet yogurt can be without added sugar. Bonjour also is a bit more sour than Aris though it’s not that sour.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.
