Pierre Hermé x Ohayo Dairy (Part 3)

Image

Hellossss!! I’ve finally gotten my hands on the newest flavor (about a month’s late) of Pierre Hermé x Ohayo Dairy yogurt – Infiniment Mandarine. (You may read Part 1 & Part 2 here.)

My first reaction when I heard of the 3rd collaboration flavor is: WHY?

Won’t it taste the same as their 2nd collaboration – Satine?

OK, so I told myself not to have much hopes on the current flavor and went ahead to open it. The texture is still as creamy and frothy as before (good job). However to my surprised, the taste is much milder (i.e. less sour) than Satine yogurt. They adapted the citrus peels idea from their previous collaboration and used it on their 3rd one too. *thumbs up*

Comparing Satine and Infiniment Mandarine, I personally prefer the Infiniment Mandarine as the taste is milder, much to my liking. 🙂

So what will be their next collaboration flavors? Earl grey or Cassis? 🙂

FYI – I guess Ispahan yogurt is so popular that Ohayo Dairy continues to produce it although it was supposed to be a seasonal products. Also, it can be purchased at most supermarkets now instead of convenience stores.

Happy (belated) White Day!!

It was White Day here in Japan yesterday, and it’s exactly a month after Valentine’s Day. The culture here is a little different from the regular Valentine’s celebration. Go Google if you’re interested in what’s White Day. 😉

So during Valentine’s Day, I baked Y-chan blueberry yogurt cheesecake since he prefers cheesecake to chocolate cake. And in return, he gave me a box of lovely macarons from Pierre Hermé yesterday. The queue was crazy during this period and Y-chan waited near to an hour for it. :O

Another reason for Y-chan to get me (or rather us) such luxury was because 14th March is our 6th anniversary. It sounds unbelievable but this was our 1st time to spend it together. For the past 5 years, we’re in our own country working. And every time I see my SNS feed of couples spending their anniversary together, I quite envy them deep down somewhere. (._.) But envy no more since we’re staying together now. 😀

Okays, too much blabbering. Shall post the super nice box of macarons.

Pierre Hermé x Ohayo Dairy (Part 2)

Hellooooo! Remember my post back in Oct where I’ve wrote about Pierre Hermé’s collaboration works with Ohayo Dairy?

So after their 1st collaboration works (Ispahan yogurt) in October, which I believed it was quite a success, Ohayo Dairy just released their 2nd collaboration works with Pierre Hermé last week – Satine yogurt.

The flavours in the Satine yogurt is a little different from Pierre Hermé’s Satine macaron as it uses mango as part of the ingredients. The texture is same as before, creamy and frothy and as usual, the sour punch – strong orange & passion fruit flavour. There’s also orange peel bits mixed in the yogurt which I think is quite a refreshing idea as orange peel tends to leave a bitter note when one bite on the peel.

Having tried both flavours, I prefer Ispahan instead of Satine. Satine is quite sour as compared to Ispahan and I personally don’t really like orange. 😦

I hope they will continue this collaboration. Maybe Infiniment Café or Mogador flavours? 😀

 

New Seasonal Item: Pierre Hermé x Ohayo Dairy

Image

Hello!! As most of you might be familiar, Japan is always releasing seasonal / limited period food items. From KIT KAT, Lipton tea packs, cakes to even yogurt.

Then yesterday, I found out that Ohayo Dairy has worked together with Pierre Hermé to release this Ispahan yogurt. The packaging is in this pastel pink which also reflects Pierre Hermé’s Ispahan.

Ispahan is a creation by Pierre Hermé where he brings rose, lychee and raspberry together into a macaron.

So I took a spoonful of the yogurt and slowly savor it in my mouth. It has this sour punch (from both the yogurt and raspberries) and then the light after-taste of lychee (and rose?). The texture was quite creamy as compared to the normal yogurt I’m consuming.

It’s somehow quite addictive and I’m thinking of stocking up a few more in my fridge. It’s a little expensive as compared to the normal yogurt packs but for about 140yen, I get to taste Ispahan and stay healthy at the same time. ♥
