Tasteful convenience: Just add milk

3 Feb

Two additions to grocery shelves — the Yoplait Smoothie and General Foods International’s line of latte drinks — offer the promise of convenience, but do they taste good?

I wonder if anything gets lost in the simplicity of these insta-beverages. The smoothie makes portioning easier by offering two servings a package. You could just buy a bag of frozen fruit, but you’d miss out on their unique flavor combinations: Strawberry Banana, Strawberry Mango Pineapple, and Triple Berry.

If you love fancy coffee drinks, of the espresso-variety, you may be tempted to try GFI’s lattes. With just  some hot water or milk, you can quickly blend a Vanilla Bean, Vanilla Caramel, or Mocha latte… for a lot less than you’d spend at Starbucks (especially with their recent price increase).

Anyone who knows me can be certain I’ll give both a try. Verdict TK.
