    Default have frubes changed?

    I have bought frubes for years ... put them in the freezer and then in lunch boxes/picnics to keep things cool.
    Sometimes children have them as an 'icy pole' after tea.
    Dd said the other day that her frube tasted odd, but in that she'd had garlic olives before I thought it was that! The LOs have just had defrosted frubes at end of our picnic lunch at the zoo ... and as I fed littlest one, I thought it was rather runny ....Read tube and it said 'yogurt' !!!

    Since when? I thought they were fromage frais! Or did I somehow pick up the wrong ones?

    I'm sure I've seen adverts saying you could freeze them and eat as a lolly or use as a chill pack. No idea if they've changed though.

    When someone tells you nothing is impossible, tell them to go slam a revolving door

    My son hasn't mentioned they've changed, and he can be a tad fussy hehe. He absolutely HATES the new banana ones though, maybe that was what she was eating. I have no idea whether they are yoghurt or fromage frais. I hate yoghurt and have never tried ff.

    I always thought they were fromage frais, hence the name FRomage frais in tUBES. But when I googled it, it refers to them as yoghurts.

    I don't think they know themselves- they say yogurt on some web pages and fromage frais on others!

    Well .... I emailed them to ask IF they have changed, WHEN they changed and WHY, and also, if they sold any fromage frais products in tubes, rather than little pots ....

    this is the response

    Thank you very much for your feedback about Yoplait. We really appreciate that you have taken the time to send us your valuable comments.

    Prior to introducing any product, we conduct extensive consumer testing is done and do our best to develop products that most people will like. As everyone has different likes and dislikes, which unfortunately means that our products may not be to everyones taste.

    I wonder if they actually READ my email? !!!

    have found nestle do 'huge tubes' of fromage frais, Tesco do their own, and so do Yeo !
