It seems an appropriate time of year to review a range of yoghurts. So this week i’m looking at the Stapleton range.
There seems to have been a real explosion of gourmet yoghurt brands onto the food scene in the last few years. Hardly surprising as a nation of yoghurt scoffers, it’s a multi-billion pound industry in the UK.
Who are Stapleton Yogurts?
Stapleton Yogurts are a family business who have been on the scene for nearly 40 years, established in rural Devon in 1975. They’ve grown from small beginnings to supplying the big supermarkets.
They also make the ice cream that goes in the Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference posh tubs.
What’s their range like?
I was quite taken aback by the size of their yoghurt range:
- 25% fruit
- Greek Recipe
- Stapleton Original
And the wealth of flavours is fabulous too, with my particular faves being
- Fig and Date (with delicious sunflower seeds, cereals and grains)
- Strawberry Yogurt with clotted cream
- Greek Recipe with lemon curd
How healthy are they?
There are some low fat varieties available, but to be honest I prefer a heartier yoghurt like the Greek Recipe ones as you don’t need to have a lot of it, but a dollop on your cereal or porridge gets my day off to a flying start.
In terms of nasties you won’t be finding anything artificial in these yoghurts, they don’t add stuff to thicken it and the milk comes from a local herd of Jersey cows.
The fruit yoghurts boast a 25% real fruit content, which Stapleton say is higher than any other brand.
Where can I get them from?
All major supermarkets
