Balisto yoghurt limited edition

Let’s stay on the “healthy” path for one more day. Uhm, well, not really. Balisto is always said to be “light” and “healthy”, but in fact their calories and fat can keep up with most candybars. Just because Mars uses cereals does not mean they leave out the sugar or fat. Anyway, in summer 2010, the Balisto yoghurt limited edition was back. A Balisto coated in white. My mother bought it while I was at the hospital to cheer me up a little. I’m not a huge fan of Balisto and my mum is neither, but we both really like white chocolate; and the wrapper shows a finger with a thick and delicious looking white coating. Even I thought this version could be better than the normal ones.

But what I saw after I opened the wrapper was disappointing. The thin coating isn’t chocolate, it is yoghurt and it isn’t thick enough to cover the forestberries in there. I cannot really assign the aroma, the corn dominates the smell, followed by a sour scent, probably coming from the yoghurt. But in general, this thing is rather indefinable.

The taste is a little better than the corn mix I have tried some time ago, but that was an easy achievement! The sour yoghurt coating is really good and fresh and I like it, even though I’d preferred white chocolate instead. The whole meal corn-cookie base tastes basically like whole meal instead of a cookie, but it is not too dry this time. The last component is a forestberry crème made with yoghurt. Again, it is fresh and the forestberries add an even sourer edge to that treat. You can distinguish between the berries in there only by their level of sourness; the lighter, pinker ones (raspberry) are sourer than the darker (blackberry, black currant) pieces of fruit in there.

The texture is a little juicier than the usual Balisto. The coating isn’t as melting as I wished it would be, and the crème isn’t really crème. It is chewy but not crunchy, still I don’t find it boring, but the most important thing here is, that you do not get a mouth full of dry sand!
