Review: Rachel's Organic Products


The lovely people from Rachel's Organic sent us some yummy yogurts and rice puddings to try out and review. They were very generous and the yogurts must have kept Logan happy for atleast 2 weeks or more, he had tons! Here is what we thought.

My First Yogurts - Children
These yogurts are lovely, so thick and smooth and you get a nice big helping which is just perfect for us as Logan loves his yogurts so much. You get 4 x 90g pots in a pack and all 4 are a different flavour; Strawberry, Raspberry, Banana and Mango. Logan has never tasted Mango before and he can be quite fussy but since it was in yogurt form he scoffed the lot! These would make a great weaning food as well for babies 4-6 months who are just starting to explore the world of food. Rachel's Organic have really taken care to make sure the best has been included in these yogurts by using organic wholemilk yogurt blended with smooth fruit puree and sweetened only with organic fruit juice concentrate. Yogurts are a natural source of calcium and great for growing kids and these yogurts have 12% + fruit puree and no refined sugar. They are also gluten free, non GM, contain no artificial additives, colours or preservatives and contain probiotic cultures to help your child maintain a healthy digestive system. Oh and these are suitable for vegetarians. These yogurts really are perfect, Logan gives them a massive thumbs up so we will be buying them in future. You can purchase this product for £1.80 from Tesco, Waitrose, Ocado and selected Morrisons and Sainsbury's stores.
Taste Explorers Yogurts - Children
These yogurts are very similar to the My First Yogurts but are more for the adventurous tot who wants to tingle their taste buds. They are smooth and thick as well and come in a pack of 4 x 100g pots with 4 different flavours which include; Strawberry & Banana, Peach & Mango, Apple & Apricot and Raspberry & Peach. Logan loved them all and would have happily scoffed all 4 pots if I had let him. He is a true yogurt fiend! You can use these yogurts for children from 4-6 months of age and up. They are also gluten free, non GM, contain no artificial additives, colours or preservatives and contain probiotic cultures to help your child maintain a healthy digestive system as well as being suitable for vegetarians. You can purchase this product for £1.69 from Ocado and selected Waitrose stores.
Taste Explorers Rice Pudding - Children
Now Logan has never had rice pudding before and took to it quite well. It wasn't his favourite as he's not a big fan of rice but he did give it a good go. These had a nice texture too them and were very creamy. You get 2 x 100g pots in a pack and they can be eaten warm or cold. We tried Logan with both and he seemed to prefer them cold like a yogurt. You can give these to your child from 6 months old and as with all Rachel's products they are organic so you know your child is getting the best. They are gluten free, non GM, contain no artificial additives, colours or preservatives and are suitable for vegetarians. They also contain cow's milk and pasteurised organic egg just incase your child has any allergies. Logan wasn't too keen on these rice puddings but then again he has never had rice pudding before so I may wait till he is a little older before I try him with them again. You can purchase this product for £1.09 from Ocado.
Greek Style Yogurts - Adults
For the grown ups out there we were sent two lovely Greek Style Yogurts; Coconut and Honey flavoured. I got the other half to test these out for me as I am not a big fan of yogurts, he on the other hand can't get enough of them. That must be where Logan gets it from! The coconut was very rich and full of natural flavours with plenty of coconut bits. We tested it against a supermarkets own brand of coconut yogurt and Rachel's Organic Greek Style Coconut yogurt was a million times better with more coconut and better taste. The stores own brand was sweeter but it had a ton of sugar in it so we thought it was trying to cover up for a lack of flavour and coconut. My partner was to taken with the Honey yogurt though as he couldn't taste much of the honey. My other half loves honey and have tried lots of different flavours so he was very excited to try the Honey yogurt but he felt let down a little by the taste. So Rachel Organic people, more honey in the honey yogurt is needed. The Greek style bio-live yogurt with honey or coconut contains the health-giving probiotic cultures Lactobacillus acidophilus & Bifidobacterium to help improve and maintain a healthy digestive system and the honey itself is collected from the foothills of the Himalayas. With less than 10% fat this yogurt could make a great dessert alternative helping you to lose some weight and still enjoy the finer things in life. These yogurts come in to different sized pots; 450g or 350g. Both are suitable for vegetarians and contain cow's milk. You can purchase these products for £1.89 from Ocado and selected Tesco, Sainsbury's and Waitrose stores.
Divine Rice Traditional - Adults
Again I hate rice pudding, I have just never taken to it even when I was a baby but my other half loves the stuff so he was my tester for the Divine Rice Traditional pack of 2 x 150g pots. Well he loved them, they are very rich and creamy and with less than 5% fat in each pot you can have your cake and eat it too. These lovely little dishes are made from pure, fresh milk from organic farms and are slow cooked for a traditional creamy taste. They are delicious eaten hot or cold. You can purchase this product for £1.29 from Waitrose, Asda and selected Tesco and Sainsbury's stores.
Overall Logan and my other half loved most of these products and we would happily purchase them in the future. The Greek Style Honey yogurt could do with a bit more honey but I'm sure Rachel's Organic are constantly improving their recipes. The packaging for all of these products is fresh, bright and very stylish. It definitely gives the impression of a high end brand that you would happily recommend to friends and family.

Logan's rating - 10/10
Mummies rating - 8/10
Other half's rating - 8/10
