    Ricera Organic Rice Yogurt - Blueberry Flavor

    I'm always on the lookout for a good non-dairy yogurt to pack in my children's lunchbox. We really like the homemade soy yogurt that I make, but there's some obvious packaging problems with that. We've never had Rice yogurt before, so recently when we saw Ricera Organic Rice Yogurt next to the Soy yogurts at Whole Foods, I thought we'd give it a try, and picked up a blueberry flavor.

    It has attractive packaging. I pulled off the foil tab and handed the cup and a spoon to my oldest son. He took a big fat spoonful, and then immediately made a horrible face. "This tastes like *ss', he declared. I gave my younger son a spoonful, and he said it was terrible. Between the two, they agreed that you could taste the rice, and that there was somehow too much 'pulp' (or something like that) in it, and that it had a gritty taste.

    I took a spoonful, and I didn't think it was all that bad- not too sweet. There was something off about the texture, but it did taste like blueberries. I gave the rest to my fiancé, who proceeded to wolf it down in less than 30 seconds. He said it tasted great. So the tally would be two adults who liked it, and two children who did not. I'd guess maybe that adults don't expect yogurt to taste like dessert.

    Because it has so many different thickeners in the ingredients list, it did have more of a pudding consistency, and I would have liked it being a bit more tart. But then, I like my yogurt tart and not sweet.

    Everything seems to be working now. What's great is that I've been seeing not just Ricera Yogurt showing up in more stores, but also other varieties of soy yogurts showing up! Great for vegans and vegetarians.
