Danone Light & Free

I recently received a voucher to try Danone's new Light & Free Greek Style Yogurt.  I was able to pick some up at my local Asda and had a choice of two flavours in that shop, raspberry or cherry.  It also comes in Blueberry, Strawberry and Peach and Passionfruit flavours.  I chose the Cherry Charmer as I have diverticulitis and need to be careful of eating anything with a lot of seeds.  Delciously thick, sumptuously creamy with fruit pieces, with 0% sugar and fat, and coming in less than 60 calories per pot!  What do you have to lose?
What I thought:
It was nice and thick and quite creamy.   There were lots of bits of cherry, and it tasted really nice and fruity.   There is a slightly flavor of the sweeteners which are used (acesulfame K, Sucralose), but its not unpleasant like some artificially sweetened things can be.  As a diabetic I have to watch any sugars and at 7.7g for each 115g (1 pot) serving it was bordering on the high side for me, but was still within acceptable levels.   I loved that it was both low in fat and calories, and it is a yogurt pot I would definitely buy.  I would really love to be able to try the blueberry and peach and passionfruit flavours, as well as the strawberry, so I will be keeping my eye out for these!
They are available at Tesco, Morrisons (although I couldn't find them at my local one in Chester), Nisa, Asda, Waitrose and Ocado.
