Editor’s Note: Today I have the pleasure of introducing Nickie as not only a guest blogger for this post, but a new contributor for the blog! She will be sharing her wine, beer and spirits experiences with us. She is an amazing cook, baker and enjoy-er of wine and cocktails. Look out for more posts from her!

I had the pleasure of joining my bestie, Dee, at the launch and tasting event for Iogo yogurt at Boneta in Gastown. As I have long been promising her, I finally decided to write up a review, so here goes – bear with me, it’s my first time.

There were friendly and fun staff serving a good selection of hors d’oeuvres, all of which incorporated Iogo yogurt, of course. The chicken satay got my vote for first place, although, the bacon and caramelized onion tart was a close second. All of the recipes were in a cookbook they were giving out – I made sure to pick one up.

The event invitation promised a “new yogurt cocktail that will play with your tastebuds!” – they did not disappoint!

My favourite was the Strawberry Shortcake Martini – delicious! They had a great variety of Iogo yogurt products in an array of flavours at the event.

They also provided us a swagbag with even more flavours to try at home. I was very impressed with the different flavours and types of yogurt they had.

Iogo truly has something for everyone: Probio and 0% for the health nuts. Greko for those who love thick creamy yogurt. Nano (mini yogurt cups and mini yogurt drinks) and Zip (yogurt in a tube) for kids. The seem to have pretty much every flavour under the sun, including passion fruit and chocolate-raspberry. I’m a sucker for anything pear, so I absolutely loved their pear-apricot vanilla probio yogurt. Seriously. I think I could eat just that for the rest of my life and be happy. The other flavours I tried are: Probio orange-mandarin, 0% caffe latte, Greko honey and Nano raspberry. I thought they were all very good. I have a tub of 0% key lime pie waiting for me at home, and, I just know it will be as good as the rest.

Thanks Iogo! You definitely made me a fan!
