Lotte Foods Greek Yogurt Bars Review

Fro-yo girl here. It’s been awhile since I’ve spotted a new Korean frozen yogurt bar but I finally found a new variety, Lotte Foods Greek Yogurt bars. I found one flavor, blueberry, at Zion Market in LA’s Koreatown. The package was $6.99.

One package contains six individually wrapped frozen yogurt bars. One bar is 80 ml with 75 calories and 11g of fat. The bars are manufactured in Korea.

The bar smells nice, like yogurt and it has a small, thin blueberry swirl. The thin white coating is creamy and tastes a bit like sweet white chocolate. The interior is soft and creamy and not too dense – a better than expected texture for a frozen yogurt bar. The interior has a mild, milky flavor and the blueberry swirl adds hints of berry and lemon. The coating has the strongest flavor. The tang is very mild. Overall it’s an interesting creamy sweet treat. I wish it had a stronger yogurt flavor.

Ingredients: Water, yogurt coating (rapeseed oil, coconut oil, sugar, mixed milk powder, lactose), sugar, mixed milk powder (skim milk powder, sweet whey powder), thick fermented milk (milk, sugar, skim milk, lactic acid), blueberry syrup (blueberry, sugar, water, fructooligosaccharide, lemon concentrate), extra oligosaccharide (starch syrup, isomaltooligosaccharide, fructose), processed butter (milk, cream, butter, coconut oil), milk, artificial flavor (yogurt), citric acid, mixed formulation (guar gum, locust bean gum, carrageenan, tamarind gum), emulsifier, greek yogurt powder

As you can see, the list of ingredients is lengthy.

I wonder if it comes in other flavors? Apparently Lotte Foods has a new macaroon ice cream product. I’d like to try it.

4 out of 5 stars.

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