I was recently introduced to Icelandic Provisions. They have a very creamy yogurt named Skyr. I was able to try a free sample product thanks to Social Nature.

I’d had Greek yogurt and traditional yogurts in the past but never an Icelandic yogurt.

The product

I was able to try a free sample (thanks to a free product coupon) 15-gram (5.3 oz) container. This was perfect for a snack. it was very easy to open and included a plastic lid with a foil seal.

The yogurt was sold in vanilla and Strawberry lingonberry flavors. The coupon I had was for the strawberry lingonberry flavor.

Not your typical yogurt

Unlike traditional or even most commercial yogurts you might be asking where’s the fruit? i know I was. This Skyr product was just flavored with berry. it also had nature (beet juice) for coloring. This was a bit of a surprise to me. It did have the berry flavor yet I was expecting to find small berry chunks in it.

How does it taste?

Overall the yogurt has a very dense yet creamy texture. it did have notes of berry. The strawberry flavoring was even with a touch of sweetness. The lingonberry was a little tart but it was a compliment to the strawberry.

The texture of the yogurt was also a bit dense. It wasn’t anything off-putting but it would hold a spoon up if you position it right. This is sort of a startling contrast from typical yogurts you may buy. It gave you a full flavor with every bite. It also was satisfying to eat. It allows you to savor the yogurt.

final thoughts and pricing

For me, this was a unique treat. They sell Skyr yogurt in small containers. I will say that the brand is eco-friendly. The outer waxed paper can be removed from the plastic container. There are a few varieties of Icelandic Provisions products out on the market. You can visit their product page to learn where you can find a product near you.

I liked the Skyr yogurt I just wish it was sold in a larger container. These are great for snacks or to eat on the go. I’d be willing to purchase this product again in the future if I came across it.

If you’re interested in learning more about the Strawberry lingonberry flavor visit this link to see where it is sold near you. it’s reasonably priced. I believe it was under $2 USD (price may vary).
