Some time ago, I posted about The Amazing Sara Marian‘s find in America (at Kroger, no less) of an equivalent of cirok, a yogurt/fruit confection she loved during her study stay in Russia. Our Jay C, which is owned by Kroger, carried it long enough for me to get addicted, then stopped. They do that all the time.
ANYWAY, they’ve started carrying a different brand, Noosa. Not quite the same, but close enough for jazz. For one thing, it isn’t yogurt; it’s yoghurt. This version comes from a collaboration between an Australian and an American, and it’s pretty damn good. It could use more fruit, and I’d rather it be all stirred up rather than fruit on the bottom, but it is what it is.
The lemon, I gotta tell you, is definitely meh, but it’s good to use in place of plain yoghurt (or yogurt) or sour cream, ’cause it does have a slight citrusy edge to it. But the apple-cinnamon! Oh, the apple-cinnamon!
That name again:
