Happy Melts Organic Yogurt Snacks

happy

okay okay, this one is geared toward babies & toddlers…but i got a free coupon, and we all know my love for yogurt. How could these possibly be bad? I saw 2 flavors at whole foods, Mixed Berry and Banana Mango. Banana Mango was the one i had chosen. These yogurt snacks are freeze-dried yogurt and fruit, are gluten free, have pre and probiotics, and “melt in baby’s (or mine!) mouth”.

Each one is about the size of a nickel, and the consistency of those Necco wafer candies (if they even make those anymore. I think they come out around Valentines day). The taste is very mellow. It’s not bad, but different. I was sort of expecting sweet yogurty flavor, but it was more toned down.  It almost had a cheesy taste to it if you will. I did like sucking on them though, and they did “melt” in my mouth, but slowly. They were creamy and almost foamy-ish once they hit the tounge. The sweetness actually comes out once you fully dissolved the piece in your mouth. They are certainly something I have never tasted or experienced before, but i liked them!! 🙂 I tasted more of the mango flavor with a hint of banana. I think these would be good maybe mixed in a trail mix or some plain cereal like kashi go lean or bran/wheat flakes for some added yum and sweetness. They are definitetly good for babies and toddlers though, they are perfect finger food.
