Product Review: Fruit Fusions Strawberry and Yoghurt from Graze | EatExploreEtc.com

I bought this bag of Graze’s Fruit Fusions in a Strawberry and Yoghurt mix through Ocado. I’d thrown it into the cupboard, thinking it’d be fine but it wasn’t exactly exciting…

Which was clearly a mistake on my part. I absolutely loved this mixture, managing to eat the whole thing in a day. The bag was supposed to be two portions, but good luck with that.

Ingredients are:

  • yoghurt coated raisins
    • yoghurt coating (68%) (sugar, vegetable oil [palm kernel, coconut oil], whey powder [milk], whey protein concentrate [milk], emulsifier: soya lecithin, citric acid, natural flavouring), raisins (29%) (raisins, sunflower oil), icing sugar, yoghurt powder (cultured skimmed milk, citric acid), glazing agents: gum arabic, shellac
  • mini strawberries
    • strawberries, grape juice concentrate, sunflower oil
  • raspberry flavoured cranberries
    • cranberries, sugar, sunflower oil, natural raspberry flavouring

The back of the pack shows these are vegetarian friendly and contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Opening the bag and it smells great. the mix is visually inviting too with huge dried strawberries, loads of little cranberry bits and plenty of large, whole almonds.

After being in the bag for a while, I thought the almonds had taken on a vague but tasty fruity strawberry flavour. Nice.

The raspberry flavoured cranberries are soft and chewy, with the raspberry flavour making them seem like sweets. The familiar dry cranberry notes with a hint of bitter hide behind a lovely sweet and clean raspberry ‘gummy sweet’ taste. I really liked these.

Oddly, though I was impressed with the dried strawberries for how they looked, the flavour didn’t amaze me. However… when you combine them with the yoghurt coated raisins? Awesome. The yoghurty raisins just bring them to life somehow.

I will say that the yoghurt coating lacks a bit of tang. It’s creamy and quite sweet, so much so that if I didn’t know it was a “yoghurt” coating, I might have mistaken it as a “cream” flavoured chocolate coating. This isn’t a negative either, as I think they work really well with everything else in the bag.

What a surprise this Strawberry and Yoghurt Graze bag was. I loved it! It’s sweet, fruity, creamy and crunchy. There’s variety and the flavours are great. This gets a big thumbs up from me.

    Thanks for this review, I tend to steer away from nutty snacks as I hate all the wee bits getting stuck in my teeth, but the lure of these yogurty raisins just might tempt me in. Have a great Thursday xx

    ugh, i see instead of trying to improve their packaging, Graze are taking steps in the wrong direction into stuff like this – straight to landfill. I have really become disillusioned with this company since they have expanded – this sort of packaging does not fit what appears to be their ‘natural, eco friendly’ message at all – very disappointing.

    or am i being too hasty? there doesn’t appear to be any guidance on the packaging as to if any of the materials are recyclable

    not that any of this is your fault lol, just my hill to rant from i guess! i think i might bite the bullet and unsubscribe finally., even if i only get them once a month. .

      You’re quite right, there’s no guidance on the pack as to recyclability of the pouch. Visually it looks good, but it’s certainly lacking in the eco-friendly department!
