The bad thing about going on holiday is coming back down to earth with a bump when it all ends. Luckily, Oykos came to the rescue this year, with the perfect email landing in my inbox to welcome me back after a thoroughly reaxing fortnight in Turkey. They explained : "Oykos has launched two brand new four packs this Summer for you to enjoy more indulgent moments - the Oh So Heavenly Vanilla Oykos and the Devilishly Delicious Salted Caramel yogurt. We would love to send you some of the new packs to try, along with an indulgence hamper full of heavenly treats so you can relax and have some ‘me-time’." It sounded perfect so I was delighted when the postie delivered my treats today.
Nestling inside the first hamper was a soft white towelling robe, perfect for relaxing in after a pampering session in the bathroom.
In the second hamper was some lovely and very apt "ange ou démon" perfume, some nail varnishes (which the girls seem to have claimed already !) and the new Oykos.
As represented by the packaging, Oh So Heavenly Vanilla is set to battle Devilishly Delicious Salted Caramel, giving people the choice of indulging their inner angel or succumbing to their devil within, depending on how heavenly or devilish they are feeling!
The angelic Oh So Heavenly Vanilla Oykos combines the creamy, sumptuous texture of delicious Greek style yoghurt, delicately blended with ground vanilla beans, promising a moment of ultimate taste and heavenly me-time. It's beautifully thick and creamy and the flecks of vanilla give it a rich vanilla flavour.
However, on the naughty side, Devilishly Delicious Salted Caramel Oykos offers a tantalising flavour experience that leaves you wanting more, with a creamy Greek-style yogurt masking a rich sumptuous layer of salted caramel below the surface. I must be a naughty-but-nice girl at heart because this was my favourite. I love pushing my spoon deep through the creamy white yogurt to uncover the hidden sticky sweetness lurking below - the flavours and textures complement each other perfectly, resulting in a really decadent and satisfying dessert.
Oh So Heavenly Vanilla Oykos and Devilishly Delicious Salted Caramel Oykos will be available in all major retailers, launching from the 5th August to mid-October in 4 x110g packs with a RRP of £2.39.
The full Oykos range comprises: Strawberry, Peach, Pear and Passion fruit, plus the new 4 packs Devilishly Delicious Salted Caramel and Oh So Heavenly Vanilla.
