One of the most memorable products I sampled at Bloom a few weeks was Killowen’s range of bio-live yogurts. They’ve subsequently become my regular yogurt.
Although bio-live yogurts sometimes look a bit like curdled cheese, they’re extremely delicious and wonderfully good for your digestion and health. Killowen’s yogurts, which come in natural, strawberry, raspberry, fruit of the forest, and hazelnut flavours, don’t look like curdled cheese, and are fantastic: a great creamy yogurt tang with a fine balance of fruit and sugars.
Prices match up well to organic supermarket brands. Not exactly comparing like with like, but it’s €1.82 for Glenisk Organic Natural Low Fat (500 Gram)and €1.70 for 450g of Killowen in SuperValu Wexford. The same SuperValu sells a 125g carton of Killowen for 65c and a one litre family pack for €3.40. Killowen also make Superquinn’s own brand bio-live yogurts: Banana and Blueberry, Fruit, and Honey. These were a real, real treat, and at €1.29 each, very affordable.
Killowen’s yogurts are available in several SuperValu stores (including Wexford town and Deansgrange in south Dublin), Tesco and Dunnes in Wexford town, and several supermarkets in Kilkenny, Carlow and Waterford. In Dublin, you’ll find them in Morton’s Ranelagh and Hatch Street, Fresh in Ringsend and Smithfield… I haven’t had trouble finding them.
