mmm...Probiotics!

To be honest, I've always loved yoghurt drinks and so I was delighted to be able to try the Danone DanActive Yoghurt Drink as part of the BzzAgent campaigns.  With the coupon I received, I picked up an 8 pack of strawberry and blueberry yoghurt drinks.


I was really enthusiastic about the whole campaign as it was the first I've done in general and as a new BzzAgent. I was determined to give a fair review with my own opinion. I am not compensated in any way for this. So, read on to find out my results!


The taste of the blueberry and strawberry were wonderful. It wasn't too bland nor too sweet; almost a perfect combination for my tastebuds. I tended to drink these Danone Danactive Yoghurt drinks during the day when I felt like I wanted to eat a snack, so I effectively found these as a good way to curb my snack cravings. Besides that, they were low in fat and calories! There were only 80 calories per bottle! 


Danone says there has been scientific research to prove that the 10 billion L. casei defensis probiotic bacteria in each one of their drinks has health benefits associated with strengthening your immune system with continued, prolonged use. This, of course, I can't verify because I have always been fairly healthy and only had eight days worth of probiotic drinks. I think it would be quite hard to tell until I had used DanActive regularly.


Regarding pricing, I felt it was a little overpriced in comparison with the other probiotic yoghurt products out there as I was able to pick up on the same day, a different branded probiotic yoghurt product at half of its price.


Bottomline: Although Danone DanActive Probiotic yoghurt drink was definitely a yummy, healthy, low fat, and low calorie snack in my day to substitute for my otherwise, unhealthy snacking habits, I did find it a little expensive and would only buy it on sale.


However, for those of you interested in picking some up to try, there is currently a save.ca $2.00 off coupon. Unfortunately though, save.ca is a coupon site for Canadians, so you must be Canadian in order to use this coupon.


Until next time,
